For under $8 you can enjoy one of the best burgers in all of Tampa Bay at the The Joint.
Owner Mike Anderson has been a well known and very successful sports bar owner in St. Pete for many years. He always seems to have the same winning combination of great food at a great value in a not so trendy yet easy enough to access locale.
His newest venture opened last February and is situated near the Tyrone Mall off of 34th Avenue North.
The Joint like many of Mike’s operations has a no frills, but fun atmosphere. A friendly bar staff is there to welcome you and make you feel right at home.
We ordered the Bleu Burger for $7.77 and it was perfectly done and placed on a lightly buttered and toasted bun with a side of Borracho Beans. We also ordered a basket of waffle fries and two Yuengling’s. Our total bill was around $20.
The menu describes the “Gooey” Burger to be one of the best in all of the U.S.A. Judging by the one that was served to the very nice lady sitting next to me I have no problem believing that to be true.
Next time in we may try the Baby Back Ribs or the The Big ‘Ol Fish Sandwich which are also offered at incredibly low prices. However, it may be difficult to pass up the lightly breaded southern style chicken livers or the fried bologna sandwich.
At these prices we may very well be stopping in weekly to say, “hello” to the crew at The Joint.
