Le Tub and Hamburgers

Saturday, 12 March 2011

It certainly is a "Special Place by the Sea." Le Tub is a restaurant in Hollywood, Florida that was a former gas station on the inter-coastal waterway. Casey's father Steve suggested we go there for hamburgers and let me tell you... it was an excellent suggestion.

You don't really know what you're getting into as you approach the entrance filled with colorful signs and majestic greenery. We also noticed several bathtubs as landscaping deocration which work perfectly at a place called Le Tub, established 1975.

The joint is rustic but offers fresh food. In the above photo of Casey and Tracy, you'll notice the guy to the right in the makeshift preparation area for the kitchen, putting together hamburger patties and cutting the catch of the day Mahi-Mahi.

Casey and I split the 13 ounce cheese burger which is touted to be one the "best in America." I believe it. While not normally a meat eater, I devoured my half and was almost sad when it was gone.

The place is quirky, with a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Yes, there are painted toilets on a deck on the way out but we expected it after doing a little research. Too bad I couldn't get the girls to pose on them for a photo!
