Lunch at Le Tub

Not sure what rock I’ve been living under, but finally I made it to the famous Le Tub in Hollywood. Le Tub? you ask. It’s that hidden burger joint tucked away on A1A on the waterway between Hollywood and Hallandale, if you blink you’ll miss it. I blinked and missed it. Had to make the noticeable and probably illegal u-turn to backtrack. Word of caution: Le Tub is set right in the heart of Snowbird-ville in Hollywood, be very careful about u-turning, backtracking and stopping short in season, if you live here you know why.

If you have never been to Le Tub you’re in for a treat and the best way to experience Le Tub is definitely with someone who has never been, like me. I went with seasoned Le Tubbers. Right from the get-go this place is a sight. I’ve never seen anything like, le tubs and le toilet bowls all over the place as decorative garden pieces. Woosh! out comes the camera, I began clicking like paparazzi at the Golden Globes, this was the most intriguing thing I have ever seen. The foliage is lush, and the landscape design unique and fun, if you’re not into burgers and other types of casual fare being served in a classic joint then just go to Le Tub to see the layout and design of this place, it’s worth a stop. Le Tub is definitely where the locals go and others by word of mouth, (however word is getting out) it’s open daily (365 days) from noon to 4am, what does that tell you?

So at 4am at Le Tub what exactly do you think you’re in the mood for and will get served?? Just like the tubs and toilet bowls the burgers are a sight. They are HUGE! Huge as in the size of a human head huge! I could not believe the massive dimension of these burgers. Le Tub says it’s a 13-ounce burger, I don’t know about that I think it’s definitely pushing 16 all the way to the pound marker…Ok so it’s big. Cooking gets tricky when you’re dealing with such a substantial amount of thick meat, I’ve got to hand it to “le cook” who is doing his thing in what appears to be the size of a bathroom stall/open-air kitchenette each of our burgers came out perfectly cooked, exactly the way we ordered them. Of course we had fries and beers to go with the burgers but the next surprise was the gumbo, it was out of this world! This was a lot of food and you probably won’t be able to finish everything if you order a burger but should you venture into Le Tub for the first time you’ve got to try the burger at least once. I wasn’t able to try the Key Lime Pie another thing Le Tub is famous for, because I was about to spontaneously combust but maybe a Sunday afternoon on the water is in order for gumbo, beers and key lime pie very soon.

Le Tub is located at 1100 North Ocean Drive in Hollywood, FL 33019 (954) 921-9425
