Burger Monger – Tampa, Florida

I love cartoon characters and/or mascots from the burger chains’ early days. So I always get excited when some never indie joint has decided have their own dude (or dudette) representing the place. On the flip-side of this coin, you always hope that the resto has some good food or it’s just a waste of a monger.

My wife was with me but just wanted something to drink so I took this opportunity to order her a Hershey Chocolate Häagen-Dazs Milk Shake that she didn’t want (maybe she didn’t but I needed to try it). I go for the Fries (Double Order which is 1 pound), Chili Dog and The Burger Monger (6 oz. of Akaushi Kobe Beef).

Hershey's Chocolate Shake

The shake arrives and I watch the person who claimed they didn’t want any, slurping away. I take a taste and it’s just like a milk shake version of a Hershey’s candy bar (makes sense I guess). The fries are crispy, delicious and since I don’t end up eating them all taken to go.

Chili Cheese Dog

The Hot Dog is also Akaushi Beef and topped with an amazing chili sauce. This could be, might be and is, probably the Best Chili Dog I’ve ever had. Honestly, no joke. I loved it and I’m still thinking of it lovingly like a love affair from summer camp in junior high.

There’s nothing like a fresh baked bun to get you excited about what’s in-between it. The burger had a nice char, was very flavorful and at 6 oz wasn’t too big of burger. If it’s too small for you, you can go “The Monster Monger” route which are 2 – 8 oz. patties. I chose to go with good ole’ neon yellow American which was the right choice. The buns are mildly garlic buttered which I didn’t care for. I’m gonna assume you can ask for it just toasted which I will do next time. And yes, there will be a next time.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
