Shula Burger is known for their “Perfect Burger”, which feature a fresh, never frozen blend of premium black angus chuck, short-rib and brisket. The restaurant gets their buns fresh from Tom Cat Bakery, one of the original artisan bread bakeries in New York City, and the official house purveyor of bread for the James Beard House. For those looking for options beyond beef, Shula Burger offers a Goodseed Organic Veggie Burger, a marinated chicken sandwich and crisp garden salad. Sides include sea salt fries, sweet potato tots and onion rings. Guests can wash it all down with real ice cream hand spun shakes. Burgers start as low as $4.75 for a single.
Tampa guests can look for the regional SOHO Burger, which is a double with cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce, red onion, four pepper relish, fresh jalapenos and chipotle mayo.

Having received great support for our location at the Tampa International Airport, we are happy to once again have the opportunity to serve our fresh, award-winning burgers to our local Tampa fans.”
