All burgers come with a side of cheese to dip them into.

As for food, the menu will include smoked barbecue sandwiches, a variety of pizzas and standard bar fare, like wings, cheesesteaks and quesadillas. There will be burgers, too, that all will come with fries and house-made cheese wiz for dunking, which Di Nenna and Spohn have dubbed a "burger bath."
