The Space Coast is best known for the Kennedy Space Center but if you’re in the area and in the mood for a killer burger, don’t miss this AMAZING hidden gem in Melbourne!
We’re BIG fans of hole-in-the-wall restaurants for one reason and one reason only, they are typically known to have the best food; hands down! The Burger Inn in Melbourne is no exception! We drive an hour and half to eat there and it’s definitely worth the drive!
Conveniently located on US Highway 1 in North Melbourne, The Burger Inn has been open since 1952 and they still maintain that old school, hometown 1950’s diner feel with the owners typically always present and monthly classic car shows!
If you’re coming during a main dining time, be prepared for a small wait. They’re usually full for lunch and dinner; however the exceptional staff will make sure that your’e taken care of promptly and get you a seat just as soon as possible!
This mom and pop hidden gem was originally known for their curb side car hop service and if you sill prefer that option, you’re in luck because they still provide it! Simply pull into the front of the restaurant with your car lights on and be prepared to be served from the comfort of your car.
If you prefer dining in, there are a few limited indoor bar seat options available where you can watch the cooks prepare the food right in front of you. With primarily outdoor seating, you can enjoy the beautiful Florida weather with several picnic table style options to choose from. Enjoy old fashion service with any of these dining options!
Fresh, old fashioned greasy, juicy burgers grilled to perfection with buttery, toasted buns with amazing flavor! It’s truly a taste of heaven! Add in some bacon, cheese, onion, and the secret “E” sauce and you have a whole lot of tasty GOODNESS! Ask for extra “E” sauce, you’ll definitely want more! I recommend getting a double patty for extra juiciness.
Your burger can be made to order for your liking or you can choose from several different menu options. I’m a simple gal when it comes to burgers but I definitely recommend getting it with the bacon included; it’s cooked to absolute perfection!
My mouth is watering and my stomach is growling just thinking about it!
Piping hot onion rings, fried tater tots, and handmade shakes; OH my! The onion rings and tater tots are my absolute favorites and you definitely can’t go wrong with these additions to your meal. These extras are large and are shareable with two or three others!
For desert, get a peanut butter shake to go. It is rich, creamy, and filled with peanut butter. YUMMY!
