I did something I haven’t done in a very long time when I visited the Tap Room at Dubsdread the other day.
Visiting Tap Room wasn’t the unusual thing. It’s a favorite of mine and I go there often.
But I almost always have the Tap Room Burger, which is just one of the best burgers in town. And if I don’t have the burger, I have the Prime Rib because I don’t think anyone does it better for such a fair price.
But in an effort to climb from the beefy rut, this time I ordered the Grouper Sandwich.
It shouldn’t have surprised me to find that the kitchen applies the same standards of quality and care in the selection and preparation of its fish selections as it does the burgers and steaks.
The fillet was beautifully cooked and had lovely char marks from the grill. It was served on a fresh bun — a presence of the burger there — with crisp leaves of lettuce and a thick and impossibly red slice of tomato. A stack of fries accompanied.
Tap Room has been a supporter of the flog longer than any of the other advertisers, so most would expect me to say good things about it. As many of you know if you've read my policy on advertisers, restaurants must meet certain standards in order to advertise here. I’m behooven to check on the advertisers you see here from time to time to verify that the standards are in place.
Tap Room at Dubsdread is still a place I can easily recommend, whether it’s for a burger or prime rib or steak or even fish.
Tap Room at Dubsdread is at 549 W. Par Ave., Orlando. It is open for lunch and dinner daily (brunch on Sunday). The phone number is 407-650-0100.
