The wait is over!

Dead Bob’s, the popular St. Petersburg dive bar and burger spot, is opening its second location—called “Dead Bob’s Too"—this Saturday across the Howard Frankland Bridge. The new addition is stationed at 3681 S. West Shore Blvd. in the former home of Reilly’s Westshore Taphouse and Jockamos. 

According to a Facebook post, Dead Bob’s Too officially opens on Saturday, March 7 at 4 p.m.

 "UPDATE!!! #soonisnow!!!! It's about damn time!!!," the page wrote in typical Dead Bob's fashion."Dead Bob's too will open its doors for the first time this Saturday at 4pm!!!! Christie and Bryan will be behind the bar all night!! Come celebrate with us the wait is over!!!"

We're hoping the Tampa location mirrors the OG menu loaded with burgers, salads, sandos and "bigger bits" like chicken parmesan, the "Ragin' Cajun Chicken Burrito," and Mrs. Bob's Snapper served with jalapeño hollandaise topped with pico. You can also snag bar bites like fried pickle chips, wings and steamed shrimp. Oh, and of course pours from a full bar. Dead Bob's Too is also sticking with the tradition of staying open until 3 a.m. for the night owls or those who need to soak up some alcohol before they Uber home. 

If you're a St. Pete local and don't want to make the journey across the bridge, have no fear, the 'Burg location is still going strong at 6716 Central Ave.
