Brooks Burgers

Brooks Burgers

Voted the BEST BURGERS in Naples, Brooks Gourmet Burgers is a must-stop for locals and visitors. Customers can’t go wrong with over a dozen different burgers to choose from. The Mexican Burger (chili, raw onion, and cheddar cheese), the Donut Burger (a family favorite), and the Pesto and Goat Cheese are just a few of the long list of choices. Brooks Gourmet Burgers also offers different styles such as Turkey Burgers, Veggie Burgers, or Chicken Breast.

Located just north of Fifth Avenue South, Brooks Gourmet Burgers also offers homemade soup, salads, great appetizers (wings, fried pickles, and buffalo fire fries), sandwiches, sides (try the famous Brooks Burger Chips), and Chicago Vienna Beef Hot Dogs. Beer, wine, milkshakes, and freshly brewed iced tea are also available.

The family-owned restaurant strives to provide delicious food, a welcoming atmosphere, and even better service. Stop in for a burger and shake. You won’t leave disappointed!

Fine Folk Pizza

Fine Folk Pizza

Fine Folk Pizza
11300 Lindbergh Blvd Fort Myers, FL 33913

Fine Fok Pizza and Restaurant is not your run-of-the-mill pizza place. They have twice been awarded the Caputo Cup for the best non-traditional pizza in the United States. If you love pizza but crave something new, this is the place you need to get on down to. They handcraft some of the best combinations to make your mouth water and keep you returning to tray all their creations.

For example, their Vegan Apple-y Ever After includes apple, carmelized onion, vegan smoked apple, sage sausage, thyme cracked black pepper, sharp vegan cheddar cheese, vegan mozzarella, and brushed with garlic oil. The same pizza without vegan restrictions can be enjoyed with Kielbasa sausage, cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack cheese. Remember the take-and-bake options if you are in a hurry, and even a dessert pizza menu for a complete meal to keep everyone happy. Stop in and see what amazing pizza options you can find at Fine Folk Pizza tonight!
