Behind the name Dead Bob’s

Why the name “Dead Bob’s?” The owners met Bob at a hotel pool bar in Miami Beach years ago, according to the restaurant’s website. He was the life of the party. Someone with a giant personality and a bigger heart.

Sadly, the website notes, Bob passed away some time ago. The restaurant is named in his honor, and it certainly maintains his lively spirit.

You might need a bib from the drool but have we got a treat for you!! Bacon, cheese and fried Mac n cheese packaged up on top of our juicy Bob's burger!!!! $8.96 gets you this beauty

The ultimate Tampa Bay burger

What do you need to order? Treat yourself to garlic parm pork wings and fried pickle chips. Honestly, this is the kind of place we go to specifically for the starters. The deep fried southern-style chicken livers are shockingly addictive.

Craving a classic? Dead Bob’s kitchen serves up a fried bologna sandwich just like mom used to make. Need a spicy kick? Try Mrs. Bob’s Snapper with jalapeno.

Opening on West Shore Boulevard

Dead Bob’s Too will be located at 3681 South West Shore Boulevard. An opening timeline is still TBA.

But it’s the classic you come back for. We’re talking about The Cheesy Bob. This burger is stacked and smothered in cheese.

You can visit Dead Bob’s St. Pete location while you wait at 6716 Central Avenue. Learn more by visiting Dead Bob’s website.
