S'macks Burgers - Sarasota, Florida

Whenever I’m on one of my road trips I find that it’s very important to check out the surrounding cities to your destination. There’s always great gems to be found.

S’macks Burgers & Shakes is in Sarasota which happened to be on my path toward a weekend I was spending in the Tampa Bay area. I’ve also been following them on Instagram and checking out the Burgers they’ve been making. They caught my eye & were already on my radar, what can I tell you.

First time here which meant I was going the Original route with only Cheese and S’macks Sauce. Now, before I got to that I also had to sample the Double Cheese Cheese Dog…..yes double. Two Dogs split and grilled on the flattop topped with Chili, Cheese Sauce and ┬ádiced Onions.

Look I’m embarrassed to admit this but you know I don’t keep anything from you guys, I knife and forked it. I had to, there was no possible way to eat it without making a giant mess all over my shirt. It was messy good but I’ll stick to a single more manageable Dog next time.

The Garlic Herb Parmesan and Beer-Battered Onion Rings were both winners. I should put an asterisk next to the Fries as they were probably the most addictive of all the things I tried at S’macks Burgers & Shakes.

As Grilled Cheeses go, the one I had with Cheddar Cheese, Blue Cheese and Bacon was right on point. If you’re a Blue Cheese kinda person then this is the sammy for you.

You’ve gotta keep it simple on your first time somewhere. I know folks who try these crazy toppings then hate on a place. I like to go the basic route and work my way up to some insanity.

The Original Double was a perfect little ditty. The S’macks Sauce is not overpowering and adds the right condiment element to the nice griddled Burger Patties with melted American Cheese. This is a can’t miss Burger.

The special Frozen Custard was Chocolate Orange. The best way to describe it is if Orange Julius had a Chocolate version then this would be it. If you don’t understand what that means think Slushy Orange meets Chocolate flavor. I can at last use an adjective that I’d never think to with Chocolate…..refreshing.
