Its not everyone's restaurant but it has a great family bar atmosphere. The old drive in has partly been converted to an open air bar. Classic greasy-spoon burger joint and a must stop if you are in the St. Pete area. The restaurant isnt fancy and it isnt supposed to be. Go have a beer and a burger, relax and... More

As others have said, this place is a time warp and the burgers are decent if not extraordinary. Good to stop by if you're in the area but be prepared for a wait.

Got my BBQ from Buffys 15 minutes before the husbands hamburger came out. It was over cooked and dry! But the hamburger was great. Overall it was alright, next time I'll only order the burgers.

Biff Burger is one of the last remaining of a franchise that spanned over 800 fast food restaurants in the 1950s and 60s. Biff stood for "best in fast food" and the roto-broil was their advertised secret to good burgers. What is left is an old and beat up place that feels like a timewarp to rural Florida. The staff...

If you like an old style on the greasy stove stepped on hamburger this is the place. Bikers love to sit outdoors with their hooch coochi mama's who don't need to eat any more fries.

This is one of those places when you are driving by you may miss seeing or not wanting to stop and eat at. It is a nondescript restaurant. But not stopping you are missing out on great BBQ at reasonable prices. If you look at the menu for something to drink you will see only beer and wine. We learned... More

Open air - seat yourself. Burgers came in plastic bins, wrapped in sandwich baggie, tots were crispy, coleslaw creamy and beans with a unique taste. I heard the wait staff was rude but didn't find this to be true.

Went for lunch and ordered the burgers rather than the BBQ. Excellent burger and sides, and reasonably priced! The BBQ looked interesting also so will certainly go back to try it. Bucket of beer is $12.00....can't go wrong. Unique bar and grill, lots of bikes on weekends. Take cash, they don't take cards but there is an ATM close by.

Come back to the good old days at Biff Burger & Buffy's BBQ where we serve up a large portion of nostalgia and great food at low prices. Biff Burger is a favorite gathering place of classic cars, custom cars, street rods and bikes. Serving up the best burgers and BBQ in the state of Florida. Look for the 57 Chevy on the roof.
