The quaint little spot on South Dale Mabry where every body knows your name now has a big sister in Riverview. Located in the Winthrop Town Centre, EATS! American Grill Riverview offers the same mouth-watering dishes as its flagship South Tampa location but has a much larger bar with creative cocktails and 30 rotating taps. Since opening in late June of this year, EATS! Riverview has been bringing its South Tampa charm to the Riverview community.
Burgers and brews are the focal points of EATS! After winning the annual Burger Showdown last year, guests come from all over Tampa Bay to sink their teeth into an EATS! Classic Burger, which is 1/2 lb Angus topped with ketchup, mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion and a pickle. With a toppings menu featuring favorites such as a fried egg, mac n’ cheese, locally made sauces and more, building your own burger masterpiece is a great way to experience the best burger in Tampa Bay. Beer pairings are a must and they feature everything from classics such as Sam Adams Boston Lager, Anchor Steam and Guinness to local favorites from Cigar City, Two Henrys, Dunedin Brewery, and more. If you can’t decide from the selection of 30 drafts, try a flight and sample four 6 oz pours of your choice.
If beer is not your fancy, EATS! Riverview features a stunning cocktail list that changes seasonally. One of my personal favorites is the High West Palmer which is made with the limited release High West 7000′ Peach Vodka out of Park City, Utah. Perfect for Florida’s warm climate, this refreshing cocktail combines the High West Peach, agave, fresh muddled peaches, mint, lemon, freshly brewed tea and a splash of lemonade. Trust me, this is a cocktail you must put on your bucket list, as the vodka is limited and won’t be available much longer.
Another favorite is the Drunken Root Beer Float which is an adult version of the kid’s classic. Made with Stoli Vanil, Bols Root Beer Liqueur, vanilla bean ice cream and Coke, it is topped with whipped cream, a cherry and, are you ready for this, a fried Root Beer Float Oreo! I can’t think of a better way to end a meal than with a boozy version of my favorite childhood drink.
Every Monday, just like their flagship South Tampa location, EATS! Riverview offers their classic burger with fries for just $5 all day and night (dine in only). I can’t think of a better deal or a better burger in town. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by.[?]
