A trip to Old School Burgers, Dogs and Shakes in Willow Grove is like stepping into a time hop back to the nineteen eighties and it’s all the brain child of Mark Spaetti.
“I live in Willow Grove so the idea of cooking food in my back yard you don’t want to be bad at it,” said Spaetti. “I’m going to have to face my customers so that was a pretty good motivator to do a good job.”
The restaurant is decked out with a Ms. Pacman machine, a Rubik’s Cube and plenty of other eighties themed decor. The menu is an ode to the past as well with burgers like the Kevin Bacon and the Blues Brother.
“All our produce is cut every day, all of our sauces are made in house every day, everything is very fresh and I think that’s the main component is that you can taste the difference,” added part owner Chris McCarthy.
Old School Burgers, Dogs and Shakes has another location in Ambler, Pennsylvania and will soon open up in the Doylestown area.
