Because we love the show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” my man and I decided to go off the beaten path a little and stop in at Danny’s All American Diner, Tampa. Actually we had planned to go to Tampa Bay Brewing Company (also from the show) and they were shut down. But that was okay. We were not sorry that we ended up here! They are best known for their chilli and their burgers; this is comfort food to the extreme.
After driving through an admittedly dodgy part of town we did not think we would be stumbling across any diners on this foresty stretch of road but lo and behold our GPS came through for once! Parking is on the other side of the road and all seating is outdoors.
You know right away you’ve got the right place as Guy Fieri adorns the front door and their menu boasts Guy’s own Triple D Triple Play burger! We didn’t have to wait long; maybe 5 minutes or so for our order.
While the Triple D burger does sound amazing, I opted for the Chili cheeseburger. It was so warm and gooey and delicious. The chili had a nice flavour though I did find the dish a tad bit meat-heavy; was hoping for a tad more tomatoes/beans. That being said I would totally order it again, I really enjoyed it.
Josh went for the Triple D, Triple Play and really enjoyed his as well. I had a bite and honestly I could have eaten his whole plate. It’s seriously good. It would be hard for me to choose between the two if I were to order again; the sourdough bread really makes the sandwich. We also shared a side of their mac and cheese and pretty well licked the bowl clean. Order the mac and cheese! It was absolutely perfect and the kind of creamy mac and cheese you can tell is homemade.
They also must have amazing milkshakes as there was a constant line of people coming and going with milkshakes.
Triple D Triple Play burger – $9.49
Home Run Chili Cheeseburger – $5.79
Bowl of Homemade Mac and Cheese – $3.99

I wish I could attach the video, but it’s been taken down from Youtube. Probably best as your mouth would be watering and you’d be booking a flight to Tampa :p.
Overall I’d give this place 4.5/5 stars and I would most definitely go back!
