OK. I'm driving through Tallahassee and tripadvisor pops up Wells Brothers Bar and Grill. Hmmm...Best Burgers in Tallahassee for the last five years. 10th best restaurant in Tallahassee as currently rated. So I'm up for a good burger and a beer. Hit the directions button and shortly pull into the parking lot. Nice looking place. I open the door and a dour hostess looks me over and says, "We're kinda crowded here in the front. You might wanna go back to the bar or check out the patio. Okey Dokey. I wander back into the bar. It's loud. It's crowded. Funny, it's a lot more crowded than the front room.
So, I look out the back door. Nice patio. I head out there. Sit down. Have a smoke. And here comes one of the Wells Brothers. "HAY HOWYA DOIN' KINDA WET OUT HERE LEMME SEAT YOU IN THE BAR!" I'm thinking "Funny, do I look like I'm hard of hearing."
Back into the bar. One of the Wells Brothers, the same one, took my order. I would have preferred the server with the script tattoo winking from beneath her long hair as she sashayed by.
The order's there quick like a bunny. My wife says that..."Quick like a bunny." It's darned good. In fact it is among the best burgers I've had in my life.
You ever been in a bar when two guys sitting at the opposite ends of the bar are hollering back and forth at each other showing off how funny they are? It never occurs to either of the screamers that one might take a seat by the other and drop it down a couple'a notches. Of course, they're trying to be the stars of the bar. So they don't do that.
Downed the burger and the beer. The loud Wells Brother brought the check. I paid it.
Now, here's the punchline. One of the two guys screaming across the bar was that Wells Bro that had me moving around the premises. Alright, I know I'm headed to sixty two. But I still appreciate having a good time. Sure, bars get loud. But you don't expect behavior from an owner like that. Especially appearing to be half smashed.
Good burger? You betcha. Atmosphere 0. Management: What management? Friendly hostess? Nope. Well, we've all wanted to be elsewhere, but you know what I mean.
Bottom line: Bodacious Burgers! Gettem to GO! OR, bring your shooter's plugs!
