    Number 1 - SnapperHeads
    Number 2 - Donut Hole, located very close to 30-A
    Number 3 - the Kobe Burger served at Gravel Road in uptown Grayton.

    My absolute favorite cheeseburger and fry - Smiling Fish... :D (they have good fries, which is a requirement to complete a good burger!!) some of these tourist restaurants have those awful fries that are not real at all - with some kind of outer crust on them - yuck! we will not go to those places because of their poor choice of fries!!!

    Does Smiling Fish have burgers all the time, or just at lunch, or :confused: Or is there a magic word?

    The reason I ask is that hoping to try the famous Smiling Fish, my son and I went there late one afternoon a couple of months back. The menu selections looked fantastic to me, but not to the 13 year old. I asked about burgers or chicken fingers for young people, and the waitress looked at my young teenager and said, "well, only if they are little." I wasn't going to pay $15 - $20 for something he won't eat (yeah, I failed in the not-raising-a-picky-eater department), so we ended up leaving.

    Also, my office is ALWAYS on the lookout for burgers, and the closer, the better. :cool:

    Coram's - a Waffle House kind of place located on 98, a few miles east of east end of 30A. Couple it with a trip to Home Helpers for hardware and Publix for grub and it's not a wasted drive off of 30A.

    their burger/fry plate is probably around $12 (their prices have increased recently). with drink we're talking $15 or more. fairly average for 30A. maybe a bit more...

    Wow...I should probably save it for special events. As long as he eats it, I'm cool - as long as my spouse doesn't find out I paid $12 for a burger and fries! ;-)

    Agreed with SJ - Snapperhead's makes killer burgers and IMHO is followed VERY closely by Summer Kitchen which makes fantastic burgers

    I don't think SK has fries do they? All places without fries get immediate DQ. :roll:


    Agree with treehole about the battered fries - yuck.

    Burgers AND fries. Great place for breakfast too. Omelets, b&g, hash browns on the grill like Waffle House.

    best fries on 30-A? hmmmmmmmmm.... this requires some investigation, and a new thread IMO. and know where you can get some good 'uns. but the best - let's see......... we may have different opinions about what constitutes an excellent french fry. Let me think on it.

    Oh, no. You've finally given in to Daddy-O's brainwashing.
    Actually, I'm proud of how well you've resisted, considering the odds weren't with you! :lolabove:

    I think she means it's important enough for a new thread. It's hard to beat a golden brown crinkle-cut fry.

    Atlantis Fish and Chips had the best burger AND fries on 30-A but they closed. :sosad:

    It's not on 30a, but it's close - Cafe 331 for lunch has great cheeseburgers, and if you fell like some extra grease, go for the onion rings instead of the fries. Really, really great. Throw in that great view of the bay from that wonderfully funky dining room and then go home and take a nap.
