Years ago, Sean made a deal with "Ms Duffy" who owned Duffy's Tavern on Anna Maria Island.
Every one on the Island knew that Ms Duffy had a reputation for the best burger on the Island. Their burger even made the "Top Ten Burgers in the USA" list in USA Today.
Ms Duffy was an icon - she had been the mayor of the town forever and everyone loved her.
Sean wanted to build a burger at the Beach Bistro Bar but did not want to get on Ms Duffy's bad side. Duffy's closes every night at seven, so Sean offered his burger only after seven o'clock. Sean then marketed the Bistro Bar burger it as the "best burger on the island ...after seven o'clock"
Since then, the Eat Here chef staff has created a killer burger formula. We all realized the other day that Duffy's is closed on Tuesdays...and the eat here "Burger Tuesdays Celebration" was born.
Every Tuesday the Eat Here restaurants will deliver the best burger in the area.
The eat here burger
Two five ounce patties of fresh ground beef, on a garlic-butter-grilled brioche bun with our own bacon jam, aioli and choices of fixings and cheeses.....with fries.
Duffy's doesn't have fries.
Eat Here presents the better burger...every Tuesday...when Duffy's is closed.
*While known to everyone who loved her as "Ms Duffy", Pat Geyer was the original owner and operator of the world famous "Duffy's Tavern" in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. Her daughters still operate Duffy's ... and build great burgers there every day...every day but Tuesday.
But if you find yourself craving a helluva burger on Tuesday, we've got you covered...and then some.
