Sophisticated Culinary Prime Burgers in St Pete
While I’ve written up other local burger joints, Engine No9 is THE go-to for some of our foodie friends. What’s your favorite burger spot around the Tampa Bay Area? Would love if you added it to the comments! Located in the Edge district and serving up Prime Black Angus burgers, Engine No9 is often voted the ‘best burger’ here locally.
Blackhawks and Lightning Background at Engine No9
Interesting fact is that it’s owned by the son of Tampa Bay Lightning founder, Tony Esposito! Jason is Tony’s son and Engine #9’s owner who I’m referring to above. While Tony and his brother Phil helped bring the Lightning to Tampa Bay, the family is a bit divided during hockey season. They’re both former Chicago Blackhawk players. Whether you’re a Lightning fan or moved here from the Windy City, add Engine No9 to your list during hockey season! They have TV’s for sports, including one at each table in the back dining area.

These aren’t your average hamburgers with the typical toppings. These are culinary creations, with toppings curated for each specialty burger. For instance…
“Demi-God”: Cheddar, Swiss, Sautéed Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions & Horseradish Mayo.
“One Bad Pig”: Garlic Pork, White Cheddar, Mustard Braised Onion, Fried Pancetta and Chipotle Mayo.
“The Saint”: Short Rib/ Brisket Patty Blend, Muenster Cheese, Bacon, Beer Battered Chicken, Crispy Potato Pancake, Creole Mustard Smothered with Gravy.
“Wino-O”: Red Wine BBQ Sauce, Bacon, Aged White Cheddar & Fried Onions.
Can see why they advertise “Offering A Sophisticated Flare On Gourmet Prime Beef Burgers.” You could try a new burger every day for several weeks!
They certainly also offer salads, several hot dog options, four entrees (ie Jambalaya Pasta) and plenty of starters. So the next time you have a craving, head to local Engine #9 instead of a big chain. #SupportLocal
