My 48-hour Jeninkson's Kite Fest experience was awesome. On both days, the kites were flying high and the spectators were delighted. Townsquare Media - Jersey Shore is very thankful to Jenkinson's for allowing us to be involved.

However, this article is not about Kite Fest, it's about the tastiest chili cheeseburger at the Jersey Shore.

As day two of Kite Fest was wrapping up, I started getting hungry. I was in need of an ice-cold beer and a juicy burger. I didn't want to eat on the boardwalk and I also didn't want to drive far, I was hoping to find a great place close to the boardwalk...

Luckily I remembered a recent article published by Matt Ryan, he wrote about Jersey Shore restaurants that we can't afford to lose. A handful of favorites were on the list, like Burger 25 in Toms River and Squan Tavern in Manasquan just to name a couple. Suddenly a light bulb popped on in my head, The Ark Pub & Eatery which was also mentioned in Matt's article, was right around the corner.

For me, when I think of The Ark, I think of burgers. When I scanned the menu, there were a ton of options but I went with the chili cheeseburger. It was a great decision. The service was great, the chili was delicious and the burger was done to perfection. I had a crispy order of fries and an ice-cold draft beer, which was exactly what I was in the mood for. Thanks to the staff at The Ark, it was a great experience! I look forward to getting back for another burger.
