“Bar Atmosphere, Average Food, Slow Kitchen”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We decided to try Ford's Garage for dinner. It was not busy, but it took more than 30 minutes to get our typical bar food, nothing fancy or especial. They have different hamburgers, with sides; some chicken dishes, salad, sliders, etc. Everything was just ok. I asked for the chicken sliders with different accoutrements they used for another sandwich. The waitress told me at the end of the meal that they don't do substitutions, and next time I might get someone who would not do it for me. OK. The music was on a loop, we heard "Another One Bites the Dust" several times during our dinner. It got really tiresome. They beep an Model T horn whenever the spirit moves the bartender, according to our waitress. All in all, not a memorable experience even for a bar.

“Awesome burgers!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

My husband and I ate dinner there based off a referral from our friends that live down here. The burgers are very juicy and the atmosphere is fun with all the old fords, even the bathrooms are decorated garage style!!

“Can't beat eating lunch on the bed of a truck”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Took a party of 6 for lunch there and sat on the patio on the back of an old Ford pickup truck. Bed had been converted into a large wood top table. Very nice day and enjoyed it thoroughly.

We all had a different kind of hamburger and everyone one was larger than expected and plenty of food for us all. All cooked to our liking and very tasty. The sweet potato fries were very good.

I am a big Guinness fan so I had to try the Spark Plug drink...it was very good and tasty. Plenty of beer to choose from so will certainly return on my next travels to Fort Myers and enjoy the selection.

We had a good time and the food and service were good.

“Best burgers on town!!!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food, service is great, atmosphere and decor is unique and very appealing. If you love burgers this is the place to go. BIG burgers cooked to perfection! Never had a bad experience here. If you are in town to visit or live here, put Fords Garage on your list of places to visit

“best burgers here”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we went for a meal here in the first couple of days of our vacation. We have now been back 3 times in two weeks. This place is great for burgers and staff are lovely. Mostly used by locals who help in selecting the best beers from the huge list available. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back.
