Fun, young crowd. Thursdays are huge for $1 beer night & karaoke. Friday happy hour gets pretty hectic.

Pros: Fun in a group. Cheap beer on Thursdays. Fun karaoke in the back.

Cons: College kids who don't know how much alcohol they can handle.

Caddy's on the beach is our go to beach bar on near St. Pete Beach / Treasure Island. Whether its getting lunch, drinks, or maybe just some wings for a snack, this place is the perfect place.

Pros: Great food. Great drinks. Great fun.

Cons: Parking. Parking. Parking. The lot is typically full and usually we need to park near the 7-11 and walk close to a half mile to get to the beach area near Caddy's.

This is the place to go for the best wings in Tampa! They have countless combinations of sauces and styles to make your wings. My favorite is breaded hot garlic, & grilled scooter sauce. Their homemade wing sauces are all very good. All you can eat wings on Monday is the place I want to be!

Pros: Wings, wings, and more wings!

Cons: Only one location in Tampa, near USF.

Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating   Connect

Growing up in the Chicago area, Portillo's was my favorite restaurant to eat at. Now, its my favorite place to eat in Tampa! I only ate the burgers because I wasn't a fan as a kid of the hot dog toppings or the beef. Now....I can't decide what to get each time! I love it all! Proper Chicago style food in Florida with the only 2 locations in both here in Tampa!

Pros: My Favorites: Big Beef w/hot peppers Combo w/hot peppers & mozzarella cheese Jumbo Dog Hamburger CHEESE FRIES!!! CHOCOLATE CAKE SHAKE!! Even Coca-Cola tastes better from here!! Very cool retro atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Cons: Can get a little pricey if you want to try more than one item. You want to try every item and can't!
