The best places for an untraditional Valentine’s Day date on Staten Island!

Previously, we have written about our top fancy restaurant locations to impress your loved one on Valentine’s Day. This year we want to shine light and love on our fast food joints on Staten Island! Don’t feel like getting all dressed up this year? Rather do something a little more nonchalant? Here are some great food chains and fast food options that serve Valentine’s Day specials! I think we can all agree that comfort food really hits the spot sometimes. So grab your special someone and head over to one of these joints for a more chill and laid back Valentine’s Day!

Cassie extremely happy with her candle light dinner at Taco Bell!

Daniel put together a creative Taco Bell menu for their sit down dinner at Taco Bell!

Taco Bell: There is now 4 locations on staten island with the newest one being located in New Dorp. The locations of Taco Bell are 2475 Hylan Blvd, 1281 Forest Ave, 2259 Richmond Ave and 2655 Richmond Ave. Each location has a drive thru and dine in option. If taco bell is not a key to a girl’s heart, I don’t know what is! Taco Bell can be just as special to dine at if you bring your own white tablecloths, candles and champagne! This couple did just that and this guy’s girlfriend was extremely impressed he pulled it off! When you’ve been with someone for some time, you sure better hope your other half has a good sense of humor and is willing to keep things spicy! Cassie and Daniel nailed that on Valentine’s Day when the couple decided to celebrate the special day at Taco Bell. Cassie and Daniel printed menus that described each dish and laid them on the plates The “Tostada al Trapo” is listed as “Spiced minced beef, diced tomato, crisp lettuce, a lightly fried tortilla de maíz drizzled with crema and a cheddar cheese rémoulade all wrapped in a fresh tortilla de harina.” Seems accurate. Daniel did plan the whole thing with Cassie knowing, but was still extremely nervous to see if she would be happy with the end result and let’s just say she loved it! You can make anything look luxurious with some creativity. Just drizzle the hot sauce and BAM you have a high end presentation dish!


The special at White Castle called “love cube” and it couldn’t be more adorable!
