“Hubba Hubba!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

A very fun venue for enjoying a casual dinner with family & friends. Named the Hub pressumably as it is located at the hub intersection on Sisesta Key, in the heart of the party zone.

Have eaten here a dozen times and have always enjoyed the outdoor seating, except when live music is so loud one cannot hold a conversation. Service can be excellent, but usually is just average. House is typically full up and no reservations are accepted.

Food is typically very good although at times they have issues with consistency. Recommend the Camarones del Diablo or the Burritos. Fresh fish is an excellent choice too. Not a place for dessert. Instead, head across the street to Big Olaf's for great ice cream.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Always one of our stops when we visit Siesta Key. It was hot this week, so we chose to eat inside, however the patio dining is very nice with live music playing. Had good service. We love their nachos. Huge plate. We ordered them with the chili on the side this time and I think that made them even better as they stayed crispy and tasted really fresh. We had fish tacos and burritos and they were great as well. A great casual dining spot.

“Great Food, good atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Get the Steak burrito! Oh my goodness... It has more steak than I've ever had in a burrito anywhere! It's great! We ate there 3 nights during our stay and it was our favorite of all places in the village!

“Nice Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

My beautiful wife and I were driving through Siesta Key, when we stopped for a bite. We stopped in about 4:30pm, the crowd was light but it packed before we finished. We had been on the road for a while and wanted something refreshing. It was. happy Hour and drafts were $2.00! My wife had the burger, one of the best she's had in a while. I had the 1/2 rack of ribs. We are from Texas, we know BBQ, this was good BBQ. The restaurant was typical beach motif, but the staff was knowledgeable of the menu and very efficient. If we are ever in Siesta Key again, this will be one of our stops.
