The Boiler Room Baconburger, $6.50
The Boiler Room Bar & Grill
5600 Manatee Ave W, Bradenton
The Boiler Room is best known for its ridiculously good and greasy rib eye cheese steak sandwiches. Cheap beer, pool tables, blaring jukebox and friendly service are major attractions, too. But any local with a decent palate will also tell you the West Bradenton bar and grill makes some of the best burgers in Manatee County.
The patties are mid-sized flavor sponges absorbing all that cheese steak tastiness from the flattop grill. Accentuate with thick, crispy bacon, a couple slices of Swiss cheese, plenty of pickles, onions, iceberg lettuce and mayo between two basic white bread buns and you’re grasping a handful of scrumptiousness. Throw in an order of fabulously thin fries and wash the meal down with an ice cold mug or can of domestic brew.
