This casual spot is perfect for fueling up post-beach trip or to cheer on your favorite sports team with their 12 flatscreen TVs all around. The vibrant atmosphere is super spacious and welcoming and they typically have live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. Lately, the weather has been impeccable and Burger-Ish had their garage style doors open to let in that nice breeze. They also have patio seating to soak in every bit of sun that you can get.

Their menu has American favorites from chicken wings, burgers, sliders, and more. Plus a full cocktail, beer and wine menu. The daily specials are wonderful, find them here. Burger-Ish is a burger joint where I could eat all day every day until I literally exploded. All of the food I consumed was tasty and great. Naturally, I started with red sangria which was only $6 on Sunday. It was the refreshing sip I needed after a long day in the sun.

To start, we ordered the crab cakes which are labeled on the menu as a fan favorite and spicy. The drizzle of avocado cilantro lime sauce had a really nice zest to it. I really enjoyed the habanero aioli sauce and fresh pico de gallo too. The crab cakes were seasoned to perfection, soft to melt in your mouth, and overall tasted very fresh.

Side note: The crab cakes were outstandingly scrumptious but they weren’t at all spicy.

The burger section of the menu has classics and specialties that are perfect and picture-ready. The St. Pete Special burger is a—wait for it—genuine hit with an all beef burger, bacon, onion ring, American cheese, sweet and smokey mesquite bourbon sauce, finished with a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, onion, all on a pretzel bun. The slathering bourbon sauce and oozing egg yolk really make this burger stand out. If you’re okay with a little mess for a tasty burger, you should order this.


We upgraded to the sweet potato fries and I 100% recommend doing the same. The fries were crisp and salted on the outside with a nice soft inside.

First off, the sliders are 20% off on Mondays. You’re welcome. Second, they come in 3s with a side of fries. These aren’t the kind of sliders to leave you still hungry after. They are a great size and the fries are crisp and warm.

The Geez Louise comes stacked with 3 beef sliders topped with American cheese, avocado lime sauce, lettuce, tomato red onion, on a brioche bun. These sliders avoid the dreaded ingredient overload,  but you still have the option to add avocado or bacon for $1. These sliders are addictive, I can’t wait to order them again.

If you’re not in the mood for a burger, Burger-Ish has a ton of other options from sandwiches, tacos, salads, and more. I was craving a grouper sandwich and really enjoyed The Big Mouth Grouper Sandwich with grilled grouper, avocado, romaine lettuce, tomato, and red onion on a pretzel bun. The grouper was pleasantly seasoned and the toppings were all fresh and enjoyable. I wasn’t crazy about the pretzel bun. It seemed like a lot of bread in the way of the grouper, but besides that, it was still good.

I also added the truffle oil to the fries for an additional $2 which gave them a balanced earthy and garlicky boost.

Burger-Ish knows what’s up because they have a $2 off taco Tuesday daily special. I mean how can you resist a taco Tuesday deal?

All tacos come with red cabbage, pico de gallo, avocado lime sauce and sour cream. You have the choice between blackened grouper, coconut shrimp, pulled chicken and pulled pork. We went with the pulled chicken and pulled pork. Both were described as very good. I was suprised by how big they were and that drizzle of avocado lime sauce and sour cream was just right.

Pro tip: order a side of barbeque sauce for the pulled pork tacos for extra flavor.

Since the tacos are considered an appetizer, they don’t come with a side but that didn’t stop us. We ordered a side of onion rings and were certainly satisfied. They were crispy and served hot. Does anyone else like to dip their onion rings in ketchup or is it just me? Maybe I’m just a condiment overuser, but either way, these were perfect.

Burger-Ish is a blissful burger joint with a variety of other options too. If you’re in the mood for a traditional burger and iced cold beer, you’re in luck here. On the other hand, if you want something different but still reliable, they also have you covered.

Stop by for a casual yet amazing meal. You can’t go wrong.
