Still talking about the amazing hamburger we had last week. George takes incredible pride in the food he is creating. From the home made bacon and ketchup to the duck fat French fries, this place is a MUST-DO on a visit to the Keys!!

Don't be fooled by the fact this is a small place in an unassuming spot as this is fabulous! It's very casual with great food and specials!

“Excellent !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Saw a review on local tv in Florida Keys, read the trip advisor reviews and decided to go. It was a great place. Friendly service, varied and interesting menu, reasonably priced. These guys should do very well!

We love this place. Always a tasty IPA beer for us. Delicious things you wouldn't have thought of eating before. Onion strings meow! Inside out burger and so much more. Its always fun to see what the specials are on the FB page.

“Great for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Not that I don't love fish sandwiches but this restaurant gives very nice alternatives to the usual restaurants of the upper Keys. I have eaten here maybe 7 times and never been disappointed. The Chorizo burger is my favorite, a nice patty with just enough heat served on a bun with a great sauce. They make their own sausages, bacon, and condiments from scratch. My husband loves the bratwurst sandwich. Seasoned fries are perfect and their wedge salad is to die for if you don't feel like meat. A small restaurant in a strip mall without any great views but the food makes it worthwhile.
