Datz is the restaurant name and the title of this posting is their twitter handle. And their twitter handle is how I found them. Twitter continues to be a treasure trove of place and people that make my life better and more interesting.
Last weekend the wife and I were headed over to St. Pete Beach to stay at the Postcard Inn. And since Datz was along the way, kinda, we stopped in. Datz is located in South Tampa and we don’t get down there much since we lay our heads in Apollo Beach.
Datz is really a deli. But their menu doesn’t resemble a deli. It acutally reminds you of the morning fish wrap as it comes in newspaper form. I’ve never seen this from a restaurant. Have you?? And their menu is F-U-L-L. But since I’m a burger guy, I stuck with the girl that brought me, as a friend says.
The burger was great, although a little overdone. The price was also a little high at $12, especially for lunch. But it is in South Tampa, so I guess they can get these kind of prices. The homemade chip that comes with the burger was delish. They were drizzled with a sweet blue cheese dressing. And their beer selection is brimming with microbrews!! I got Tampa Bay Brewing Company’s black ipa. Usually this beer is stellar, but the hop bite on was ferocious, which was not Datz’s fault, but rather a TBBCo concern. It might have been a “green” beer.
If I were in the area, I would definitely go again, but I would split the meal with the wife. Too much food for one person, especially when you throw in the chips.
Have you been there?? Thoughts??
