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).
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.
