Burger Bob’s falls into the greasy spoons restaurant category. There’s nothing wrong with that; you’ll typically find some of the best comfort food at places like this. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, you could drive right by
Burger Bob’s ( 2001 Granada Boulevard, Coral Gables).
It’s located right on the Coral Gables Granada Golf Course and has a beautiful view of the course itself. It is cash only (which for some reason I had anticipated). Walking into this place is like walking through a time warp, it takes you back to an old school diner in the ’50s.
I’ve been here a handful of times and always order the patty melt with fries. It’s a great patty melt, the textbook definition of one.
The hot dog I ordered was grilled on the flat top and was a little bit crispy, in other words, excellent. The raw onions were the right touch it needed (alright, so I added some Mustard also). Great dog.
The fries were a standard affair while the chili was right on and would probably make a great addition to the dog.
After looking around, breakfast is the strong suit of this place, not the burger. They seem to have everything you’d like: eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, grits, pancakes. I’m sure you get the idea.
So I plan to return to have breakfast here, and I’ll keep you posted unless you prefer to keep me posted first.
