I have a few friends who are vegetarians or vegans. They refuse to eat meat of any kind. I applaud them. Although I do not eat red meat or poultry, I do eat some (non-farm raised) fish. The Burger Place works for me because they have one of the best Veggie Burgers I have ever had!
The Burger Place is located in Historic Downtown Melbourne, FL. It is kind of an unassuming place with a really nice outside patio. I discovered it one day riding on Rt. 192 on my way to the beachside. My boy saw a sign that said best burger in town this way! I laughed and we decided to try it for lunch.
When you walk in the place you will feel like you just headed back into the late 1950s or early 1960s. It has the look of an old diner. The counter Has a large menu directly over the cashiers head. It really does not matter what else is on the menu...order a burger or veggie burger, fries and a shake (yes...I realize this is a huge number of calories). The burgers are some of the best in Central Florida...the bun is heavenly! The thin cut fries are the perfect side...and the shakes are out of this world hand crafted while you wait! Kids meals come in a nifty paper cars that they can take home and play with later.
The Burger Place is located at 811 E New Haven Ave, Melbourne, FL 32901. The phone number is: 321.676.8914
The hours of operation are: Mon-Thurs 11-8, Fri-Sat 11-9 Closed Sunday.
If you are...like me...always in search of the best burger or veggie burger in the area...try The Burger Place, you will add it to your "must go back" list.
