Ted’s Luncheonette in Largo, Florida

Ted’s Luncheonette was initially a doughnut and cup of joe spot named Coffee Break when the Stoupa family purchased it in 1979. The interesting thing is that doughnuts are not on the menu anymore.

Ted’s Luncheonette is only a breakfast and lunch spot. Their regular operating hours are 6:30 AM until 2:30 PM.

I was cutting it close at almost 2 PM, which I don’t like to do. I’m an early bird, but I was coming for burgers, and as much as I love them, it’s not the first thing I want in my stomach in the morning.

I look over the burger section of the menu and choose the double cheeseburger when I don’t find a patty melt.

Not Patty Melt, but there’s a Double Cheeseburger

The double cheeseburger comes on a Kaiser roll, my least favorite burger vessel. It tastes like the quintessential diner burger that I envision eating when I’m at a greasy spoon in the United States.

Regularly, the toppings on the burgers are lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, and mayo. I went old school with only onions and pickles. Then I added the magic classic burger elixir, yellow mustard.

Great burger.

The order of onion rings is a good size, and I drown these babies in ketchup, a new hobby of mine.

I wasn’t leaving without a slice of pie. While, unfortunately, the apple pie wasn’t baked in-house, it did do its job and accompanied my cup of coffee perfectly.

In burger rumor circles, some incorrect information is swirling around about Ted’s Luncheonette in Largo. Pulp Fiction was not filmed here, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a connection to the iconic film.

Yeah. I was just sitting here, drinking my coffee, eating my muffin, playin‘ the incident in my head, when I had what alcoholics refer to as a moment of clarity.
