BEST BURGER 2017
Bobby’s Restaurant and Lounge, 3450 Ocean Drive, Vero Beach, 231.6996
One look at those luxuriously plump burgers that come out of Bobby’s kitchen and you’ll know exactly why the restaurant and lounge won the Best Burger award. The restaurant has had 35 years to hone its burgers into works of culinary art. The restaurant and lounge, said by some to be similar to the TV show Cheers, is a homey place where friends come to see friends and first-time patrons will know everyone by name by the time they leave. Bobby’s builds burgers in its own special way. While most are 8 ounces, the Bobby Burger is 10 ounces of sirloin with sauteed onions, mushrooms and cheese on top. The Burger Club is 10 ounces with cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon and Thousand Island dressing. Everything comes with a potato salad that tastes like it came from mom’s kitchen, or a homemade coleslaw, or fries - sweet potato or regular. The Dodgers were frequent visitors to Bobby’s when the team trained in Vero Beach, helping to build up the clientele. The friendly way they treated everyone helps make it the kind of restaurant and lounge it is today.
