Holy Smokes - Palm Beach Gardens, FL

This is a hidden gem in Palm Beach Gardens... Just a small drive east of the Gardens Mall & Downtown at the Gardens. Nice open atmosphere. Long bar with solid beers on tap. Empty for lunch but not a concern of ours. We're here for the burgers... Check out this list...

The Santa Fe Burger got my interest today & I have to say right off the bat that this was well worth it. Cheese melted perfectly and all toppings stayed on the burger throughout the entire eating enjoyment. I was really pleased with the flavors of the topping also. Very fresh. Meat quality was on point. Lastly, the roasted garlic chipotle mayo on the bun far surpassed my expectations. Job well done Holy Smoke's. I was impressed. I'll be back for more!

Hobo's Kitchen - North Palm Beach, FL

With a name like this... How could I pass this up?

With a burger like this... How could I pass this up?

Hobo's is stuck in 1986. Nostalgic decor all over the walls. Smells of salt water and grease. A nice mix of local fisherman and the open air kitchen. But packed for lunch... So it must be good.

The "Clucking-moo-oink" lived up to expectations... It truly was a breakfast burger. Grilled nicely and a decent size portion of beef. The eggs were overflowing and the bacon was flavorful. Cheese melted well throughout with a soft bun allowing all the pieces to mold together into solid bites.
