Remember a few weeks back, I talked about finding a good cappuccino in Belfast? Well, Santiago, my husband, is a burger man and we have been searchin’ for that juicy, char-broiled, manly-man burger with a grilled bun ever since we started our innkeeping duties in March. We have driven north to Bar Harbor, and south to Camden and Rockland in this seemingly Don Quixote quest. We even drove to Kennebunkport and almost found the answer there — but I protested that driving two hours for a hunk a hamburger was a bit much. All the while, mind you, I had been recommending Rollies Bar and Grill, right on Main Street in Belfast. Finally, Santiago agreed to try Rollies — and there it was in our own back yard, the best burger in the mid-coast area. And served with the terrific onion rings and even blue cheese.
Rollies is reputed to have its start as a biker bar, and indeed on our first visit ten bikers and their mates who straddle the seat behind the driver (why this is considered fun is beyond me!) were having a grand old time, and later they rolled away on their very large Harley-Davidsons. Subsequent times have featured blue-haired couples and families with young children. It is just a load of fun – and with great burgers!
Tonight some friends from Camden joined us for dinner — and we headed straight for Rollies.
