A couple of years ago on 'Oprah', Gail King (Oprah's best friend if you didn't already know) raved about her favorite hamburger joint in America. Le Tub, located in Hollywood, Florida, is a beachy-styled hut situated along the Intracoastal Waterway at 1100 North Ocean Drive. This week found us in Florida, not too far away.
So last evening, armed with a GPS, four hungry northerners spending their last warm day in Southern climes before heading back to the arctic circle (seriously, not exaggerating!!), decided to pay Le Tub a visit and check off an item that was on the lower end of my personal bucket list.
Le Tub is indeed a shack (a shack with a tub or two), reminding me of a flat Swiss Family Robinson Tree House or a structure the Gilligan's Island castaways might have constructed had more driftwood washed ashore during their stay on the deserted island.
Water at Le Tub is
self-serve in coolers like this.

Hollywood, a planned 'dream town' and one of the most populous cities in the state, is probably most famous for it's beautiful oceanside hotel and condominium facilities and numerous shopping centers but I do believe that this one-of-a-kind burger shanty has put Hollywood on the map for the epicurean set.
