Just up River Road from New Hope is Dilly’s Corner one of the best places to get a burger in Bucks County. It right across Rt 32 from the Center Bridge Inn (Top 5 Best of Bucks – Special Occasion/Anniversary) and the bridge to Stockton, New Jersey.
This drive in restaurant has been a fixture in Bucks County for years and in a favourite destination for locals and those “from away”.
Dilly’s offers daily specials such as tilapia and lemon sole but crowds line up for the burgers and ice cream. The staff has operations down pat so the lines move very quickly allowing you to get to your order in very reasonable time. There are three seating areas; inside and covered outside seating on the left side and uncovered outside seating on the right side of the restaurant.
The signature menu item is the Dilly Cheeseburger. It’s a 1/3 pound of hambuger on a kaiser bun with cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. You get your choice of hot brown mustard, relish and ketchup at the condiment stand. Make sure you take lots of napkins from the condiment bar as with any big an juicy burger like this you are gonig thru at least a half dozen of the small napkins. As for the burger, it’s char-grilled giving the burger a slightly smoky taste with chared lines across the patty. The melted cheese, tomato, lettuce and mayo blend in to a a sweet compliment to the charred burger. Very delicious burger and worth the trip even if you are coming from New York or Philadelphia.
The second great reason to come to Dilly’s are the fries and onion rings. The fries are those great thin ones that are medium crispy, just like they serve at that famous fast food place. Dilly’s fries come lightly salted and hot from the fryer. You get lots of fries in an order so it may make sense to order a size smaller than you usually do so you don’t regret ordering too much. As for the onion rings, they are Donna’s favourite and we order them everytime. The sweet onion slices have a light batter and cooked prefectly to give a little crunch when you bit into them. The contrast of the soft sweet onion center and crunchy salt batter make these rings a great add-on or an order by itself.
I can confidently recommend Dilly’s Corner for a great burger and great experience here in Bucks County and have added it to the Top 5 Best of Bucks – Burgers.
