Sarasota FL Best Burger

  • e

Lived here 2 years and still haven't found a hamburger that touches In N Out in California. Doesn't have to be fast food, just really flavorfull. What am I missing? Help!

      HOB NOB SUCKS..... THE BEST BURGER I FOUND IS A) PATRICKS ON MAIN ST. B) NEW PASS GRILL AND BAIT SHOP. THEIR BURGERS ARE TO DIE FOR, AND YOU SIT OUTSIDE AT A 50 YEAR OLD BAR, ON A BAR STOOL, AND THE OCEAN IS 5' AWAY, AND YOU CAN WATCH ALL THE BOATS COME IN TO GET THEIR FISHING BAIT OR TO CUT UP THEIR CATCH... A VIEW WORTH A MILLION AND THEIR BURGERS AND FRIES ARE ONLY ABOUT $6 OR $7 BUCKS. ENJOY

    2. Duffy's in Holmes Beach! Also--- I haven't tried it yet; it's on my list of things to do--- PG's on Longboat Key has a terrific sounding burger in the off season only.

      1. If you're still living in SRQ, check out Shakespeare's Pub on south Osprey Ave. They have excellent burgers. They also
        have over 80 beers to choose from, many on tap.

        1. 8 years and 10 months plus may be the record for the longest old thread bump, congrats.

          1. I agree, with Patrick's, Shakespear's maybe PG on LBK but......ever have the burger at the bar at Hyde Park Steakhouse in downtown SRQ? Just off Main St., south on Lemon. not bad, and happy hour is an additional bonus!!!
            Hob Nob, Square 1 and S'macks all fall a little short, in my opinion.

              Hillview Grill has a very good burger and on Thursday evenings their burger and beer is $10……..
              Yes--you did respond to a 2005 thread……..
              But thats OK, because it shows that we are still eating !!

                Once we're talking about $10 Burger and beer combinations, a strong vote for Sunday at Ocean Blues. The burger itself is delicious using a great meat blend (brisket and prime beef) and spot on cooking. I've happily paid the basic menu charge of $10 for the burger alone on a night other than Sunday.

                Ocean Blues is just a couple of doors away from the Hillview Grill. Both are located on Hillview, the street that is on the south side of the hospital.

                Bonus: On Sundays, Ocean Blues does a blues jam when locals perform. We've been three times and, although the groups change, they all tend to sound quite polished and tight. The musicians may have gray hair but that age and experience shows up in the excellent musical skill. Music tends to be -- no surprise -- mostly blues and classic rock.
