Ford's Garage recently opened in Wesley Chapel, located across from the Tampa Premium Outlets.

The first Ford's Garage opened in 2012 in Ft. Myers, Florida, and continues to expand.

"Our entire team has been working hard to prepare for this expansion," said Marc Brown, managing partner. "We are excited to introduce our innovative and entertaining dining experience to new friends in Wesley Chapel and its surrounding areas."

Ford's Garage's menu includes a variety of fresh, never frozen, prime burgers such as Ford's Signature Model "A" and the Distinguished Gentleman.

All burgers are served to perfection on a Brioche or European pretzel bun. Other menu items include comfort foods such as Chicken Henry, Pulled Pork Mac N' Cheese and Mama Ford's Homemade Meatloaf.

A variety of soups, salads, and sides are also available.

Ford's Garage features an extensive menu of bottled and draft craft beer, including Tampa Bay Brewing, Cigar City, and Coppertail.

"We pride ourselves in having a relentless drive for quality in our food, drink, atmosphere, and customer service," said Brown.

Ford's Garage is opening several more locations in the Tampa Bay area, including Westchase, Countryside and St. Petersburg.

The Westchase location is currently under construction in front of Costco at the corner of Sheldon Road and Linebaugh Ave. It is expected to open this summer.

Ford's Garage Wesley Chapel is located at 25526 Sierra Center Blvd. For more information, call (813) 540-3673, or visit
