    We were there at lunch. Friendly service at the bar and a very short wait. Burgers were awesome, fried mac and cheese bites sinful, and prices are low. Pluses for being a Rays fan hangout!

    The 8oz beer is just the right size for those who are not big beer drinkers but want a cold one with their burger. Burgers are very juicy. Thick cut tomato, onion, and pickle round it put nicely.

    Best burger I have ever had. Here is a tip for the service. Sunday around noon sit at the bar. The owner is there and you always get service fast when she is there.

    Burgers are soooo good! Spend the extra $1 or so and get it with cheddar cheese and the works! Amazing!

    If this is not the most beautiful cheeseburger available at a place with an excellent selection of beers then I don't know what to tell you. Go there, do it, now!

    Gotta do the burgers, hard to choose between the jalapeño poppers and the onion rings so get both and share.

    El Cap isn't too close to the Trop, but if you're driving from Hillsborough it's on the way and is one of the area's better burgers. The Short List: one of our top 5 places to eat before a Rays game. Read more

    Corn dog nuggets are hot and delicious! Draft beers are tiny, but the burgers are juicy and old school. The dog-friendly patio has nice tables, fans, and tvs.

    Gotta know where you're at. Five stars it's not. Great burgers, cold beer and chill atmosphere. Love the Mac-n-cheese bites.

    The perfect burger--juicy, perfectly seasoned and medium rare--is priceless. Here it’s less than $5. For more local tips, follow us on 4sq or check out www.renhotels.com

    The fried pork tenderloin sandwich with grilled onions and tomato is fantastic!

    Killer burgers with a basket of fries... Comparable to NYC's Corner Bistro, without the historical charm and cranky waiters ;)

    Rated as the best burger joint in the Tampa Bay area for many years. Burgers are a la carte (so you'll have to pay for pickles) but the service is fantastic! Great atmosphere as well.

    The waitress count their money on the front bar and in front of customers and the gentlemen is the only good bartender ... My opinion! You definitely should never count your tips up front!

    The burgers are a work of art... sloppy, juicy, and full of flavor. It doesn't get any better than this.

    This place has bomb ass burgers! Same price as fast food and you get a REAL burger cooked the you want.

    Can we sit anywhere? "Yes" - Waitress - "we usually reserve these tables for 6 or more. You can sit over there...." Umm yaaaa.

    Hair on my bun. It happens. It's all about how you handle it. Waitress gave me a new bun. And, no apology. Hmmm

    Great burgers although they could have been hot. The server left them sitting too long and forgot our fries :(

    Bottled beer is on ice and super cold, and u can ask for a cold glass. Perfect to wash a burger down.

    Best burgers and sports atmosphere in St. Pete. Enjoy the cheaper than usual beer prices and have a Corona for me.

    Gotta agree with the slow service comments. At 10 minutes no staff has said hello to us. I want to do business with locals instead of Five Guys, but gotta show you want our business.

    Burger wasn't bad. Was expecting better. Price for what I got wasn't worth it. McDonald's angus burger was better and can get the meal with free refills for less $$. Service was great

    Got an undercooked burger, sent it back without taking a single bite. They wouldn't take it off my bill. Not coming back and will recommended to everyone I know that they go elsewhere instead.

    Don't let the $1.25 draft fool you, the glass is tiny. Get a pitcher. Burgers are juicy.
