Burger Bob's

Time machines don’t exist (allegedly), but Burger Bob’s might be the next best thing. This cash-only diner is located on a Coral Gables golf course. It’s been there for over 60 years, and you’ll have no trouble believing that when you see the red vinyl stools at the counter, old newspaper clippings on the wall, and the chef working on a flat top that’s probably seared thousands of patties in its life. The burgers also seem like they haven’t changed much in 60 years. A cheeseburger costs just over $5 and comes with lettuce, onion, tomato, and mayo. Is it a mind-blowing burger? Not necessarily. But it is tasty - whether or not you’ve just golfed 18 holes or want a little bite of history.
