Hamburger Mary's

Has anyone tried Hamburger Mary's in Ybor, Tampa? The waiters are in drag, might be fun.

      Yeah. I'm out on this one. And I agree with drtodd.

        Place seems fun but the food has gotten lukewarm reviews.

      2. The food at the Hamburger Mary's in Orlando is average, but it is a fun place to visit on occasion.

        BTW The Funky Monkey Pointe Orlando has a pretty good drag show in a nice upscale venue every friday night.

          Looking for a novel girl's night out. I think this will work.

            Neat idea! Hope you let us know all about it. Might have to plan that for our next girls adventure. Hehehe

        2. what we really need are good restaurants, not drag and cabaret. i hope it turns out to be a good restaurant.

                Hamburger Mary's is a chain. As such, it is not likely to satisfy most of you folks. In my view they serve a decent burger, which in these parts is welcome. I would happily go there before a movie of if I had some other reason to be in Ybor. That you can have drag and cabaret along with a decent burger is all the better.

                  Whatever you do, DO NOT ask them to hold the pickle!

                      No, I was kind of disappointed that you weren't coming back with more.

                    I've only been to their location in Orlando (Church Street). I liked the Buffy Burger (aoili sauce with a red wine reduction -- or so they say). Their soups are pretty good. I think they have some drink specials on Friday as well.

                      I've only been to the Orlando location; the burgers are good. The other food is....well, the burgers are good. :)

                      But good burgers and a bit of showmanship is enough to keep me visiting from time to time.
