Burger 21, rated the Best Burger by Metromix Tampa Bay and Best Chain Restaurant in Tampa Bay by Creative Loafing, has become quite the popular spot in Tampa. With the original location in Westchase and a new location now open in Carrollwood, Burger 21 has people from around the Bay flocking to their doors.
Loving a good burger, I have tried both The Shroom and the BBQ Bacon burgers. The Shroom, a burger with lettuce, tomato, sauteed crimini mushrooms and onions, and fontina cheese, served on a brioche bun with garlic butter, was overloaded with mushrooms (in a good way). The bun was crispy and had the perfect flavor.
The BBQ Bacon Burger is topped with lettuce, tomato, applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, crispy onion strings, and sweet hickory barbeque sauce, on a sesame bun. This burger was the perfect combination of crispy, savory, and sweet.
After ordering at the counter, take your number and place it in the holder at your selected table (inside or outside). Wait for your meal to be delivered to you and if you are in love with condiments, visit their Sauce Bar where they offer a wide range of different sauces (8 in total). Try everything from Toasted Marshmallow to Chipotle Mayo and from Thai Ketchup to Apple Cider!
Burger 21, aptly named due to their 21 different burger selections, offers beef, chicken, turkey, veggie, shrimp, and tuna burgers. They also offer sliders, hotdogs, and salads. Have either regular or sweet potato fries with your burger and don’t forget to visit the Sauce Bar to complement. Finally, finish your meal with one of their delicious sweet offerings: hand-dipped floats, malts, shakes and sundaes.
Also, be sure to stop in often. Burger 21 has a burger of the month (currently, Chicken Marsala) and a shake of the month on constant rotation. It’ll be a welcome change every time.
