Simple Pleasures

Every now and then you have to take a break from refined food long enough to enjoy one of the best things in life. A well executed burger, cooked to a perfect medium with hand cut fries and a frosty beer is the utopia I'm talking about.
Make sure to enjoy it at this little bathroom themed shack of a bar. Le Tub in Hollywood, FL started out as a Sunoco station in the 50's that was forced to close by the energy crisis in the 70's. Bought under new ownership in 74, it was refurbished with flotsam and jetsam that consisted largely of old toilet seats and bath tubs. To this day you can still go and enjoy their 13 oz. burger and stare at their wall full of local newspaper and magazine awards(including Hamburger Americas top 100 and GQ magazines best burger).

  1. Ahh, almost perfect. Now if you could enjoy that tasty burger while on one of the toilets with I don't know...Jaws playing on a 57inch flat screen or Harry Potter book on tape...that's utopia.
    All kidding aside, I completely agree. There is serenity in simplicity.
