Butter’s Burgers just celebrated its grand opening a few weeks ago, and it’s already been hit despite city-mandated curfews, orders to remain at 50% capacity and stagger seating, and a virtually empty downtown Tampa.

The Butter’s Burgers team took to its Facebook yesterday to let its recently-acquired customer base that it’s still open and ready to serve you all its signature burgers.

The newly-opened downtown Tampa casual restaurant still opens at 11:30 a.m. daily, and is taking extra sanitized precautions. If you still don’t feel comfortable eating out anywhere, opt for carry-out, which can be ordered over the phone or at the bar. 

Butter’s Burgers has over 10 speciality burgers named after popular Tampa streets. The “Bayshore Boulevard” is a salmon burger loaded with green onion, fresh dill, red bell pepper, and lemon aioli mayo on a Kaiser roll, while the "North Ashley Drive" is a Black Angus burger topped with Swiss cheese, fried Prosciutto, sautéed mushrooms and Dijon mayo in-between two brioche buns. 

Now is the time to take the trek to Butter’s Burgers—it’s probably one of only times you’ll easily find parking in downtown Tampa.
