Blackened Blue Burger at Tampa Tap Room

Bleu cheese on its own is great, but combine it with the flavors of blackened seasoning, hardwood smoked bacon and a medium-rare Certified Angus Beef patty and serve it with lettuce, tomato and red onion on a toasted brioche bun and you have a polyandrous match made in heaven — a juicy, smoky, crunchy beauty of a burger that can quickly become an addiction. It’s a good thing, then, that the Tampa Tap Room has plenty of them to spare. 13150 N. Dale Mabry, Tampa, 813-961-2337,
