Schnapper’s Hots – Sanibel, Florida

Posted on Posted in BB Approved, Gulfcoast Florida, Sanibel, Visits by Burger Beast

My old school buddy & pal Joakinn has wanted for me to hit up the Sanibel area for years. He got tired of suggesting it and took matters in his hands.

We drove up for a four hour mini food tour (10 if you include travel time). We started at Schnapper’s Hots, then worked our way to the Bubble Room in Captiva and then back to Sanibel for Bennett’s Fresh Roast and Rosie’s Cafe & Grill.

This was just a small portion of what’s worth hitting up in the Sanibel/Captiva area and I’m pretty sure I’ll find myself back to continue the exploration soon enough.

I see Fresh Cut Fries and my eyes automatically look for a larger than normal portion to order, which in this case was a bad idea since we were trying to pace ourselves. The Fries were nice & crispy but we barely made a dent in them.

The Cheeseburger was chargrilled and chargrilled when done right is full of smokey goodness. We must have inhaled this Burger cause I remember enjoying the first bite and then much like Keyser Söze, it was gone.

Joakinn wasn’t too keen on the Chili Cheese Dog but he was oddly fascinated with the tipping bell. Me? I loved it so much I was imagining long walks on the beach with it.

That dream of course wouldn’t last too long if I was hungry.
