Willy's Burgers & Booze has been a runaway success on Corey Avenue in St. Pete Beach. Some of its appeal may be the full bar (a rarity for a burger joint), but some may be attributable to its paging-Jimmy-Buffett good-times vibe and kooky menu items. Turn your attentions to the Willy's Big One ($5.95), a respectable 10-ounce Angus burger, or its cousins the straight-up cheeseburger or bleu/Swiss/mushroom rendition (both $6.95), or even the salaciously named "Mrs. Willy's Favorite," a half-pound, 14-inch, silly-big Nathan's dog. Willy's is the kind of sprawling, indoor-outdoor bar where sunburns and flip-flops are practically a uniform.
Full menu from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. daily, with 'breakfast bar'' drink specials from 8 a.m.-11 a.m., at this bar with a Gulf view.
