4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Best burger I ever had at a restaurant. Great Place! A lot of sports memorabilia on walls. Owner was a very nice man.

“mediocre food and rude waitress”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Friend lead us here because she had always had good food. We were all very hungry so usually anything will do. I ordered the Monday special chicken salad sandwich, on recommendation of the waitress. Fresh but tasteless. The cheeseburgers were on the small side. Nothing special, with all the St Petersburg options, wouldn't choose it again.

“Hamburger like the drive-ins used to make”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great place to meet friends, watch some sports, enjoy a real hamburger. The atmosphere is very very casual. Seating indoors and out. Lots of noise. Fast service, but great great hamburgers is what you go here for.

“Great burger found on 4th street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Nothing like the burger and basket of fries at El Caps. Been coming there for years and you can count on the food and service being great. I've mentioned that the burgers would be better if served on a hard roll instead of the current ones.

“Great casual place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Love it. Great burgers and Cubans. Awesome appetizers. Inexpensive beer and wine. Friendly waitresses. The only complaint is specials are served only on their day. Cubans are available only on Wednesdays but if you can you must try one. Will be returning often.
