Some of you may recall that MOO was a highly praised food truck, found most often at Carousel Village in Newtown, but MOO has since planted roots up 611 North in Ottsville. It’s in a spot perfectly situated at the intersection of 611 and 412, a few miles down the road from Palisades High School (Go Pirates!) and the original oWowCow Creamery.
Last weekend I finally visited, MOO. Many Upper Bucks locals, like myself, knew MOO’s spot as Pryzuski’s. It had changed hands once after Pryzuski’s left, but for years I still couldn’t stop calling it that. Seeing the fresh, new look in the old spot was exciting, not only for MOO, but for the area in general. This was the first time I’d been back since the place had changed over and it brought back tons of memories! It was nice to see that the owner kept the “retro” feel, but also added some Bucks County touches.
The menu features a variety of burgers as well as salads and a veggie burger for the non-meat eaters. There are also fresh cut, sea-salt french fries and milkshakes. We were a bit overwhelmed at first, mainly because everything looked so good. When glancing through the menu, we did notice that it was “Cash Only.” Luckily, there’s an ATM right in the entrance, but worth mentioning to anyone looking to visit.*
I decided to try the special, “It’s Always Sunny in Ottsville” burger – a cheeseburger with bacon and an over-easy egg. I think I’m still drooling! My boyfriend went with the “Moink,” a cheeseburger with bacon and the special “MOOGoo” sauce, which I later overheard is their own take on Thousand Island dressing. We also got a side of fries, 2 home-brewed iced teas, and a Black & White shake.
Needless to say, the food was excellent! The burgers were cooked perfectly and you could taste the freshness of the ingredients, since pretty much all of their ingredients are purchased from local farmers, etc. Knowing that we were supporting, not only a local business, but other local businesses as well, made us feel even better!
If you’re thinking of making a trip to Upper Bucks some time (you Lower and Central Bucks kids so often forget about us!) be sure to stop by MOO and tweet me your thoughts!
*I’m going to use this opportunity to suggest they look into getting Square. 😉
