I had the grilled fish. It was very good. But the sweet potato fries are the best. You can get them savory or sweet. We got sweet and they came with honey for dipping. They were not greasy at all. I will go back just for the fries lol.

I went here on a Friday night to check out their award winning burgers. The gentleman who rung me up (who I assume was either the owner or manager) was a friendly people-person who could sell ice to an Eskimo! We took our seats and the food arrived shortly afterward. It was hot and delicious--no one should have their hungry,... More

For some reason this place won a Best Burger award. The Wesley Chapel magazine always talks about this place like it is the end all be all of burger joints. I have to tell you, it isn't all that good. The burgers are average burgers. The fries were not hot. The tomato was soggy. I came here by myself and... More

I really like the chicken tacos. The chicken philly cheesesteak is good also. The staff is always friendly, and service is quick. Great lunch place.

We recently visited for the first time after reading positive reviews and can honestly say the food was good quality and overall burgers were very good, a notch or two below excellent. I put this place above five guys. It is in the category of a five guys but more like a better quality establishment with nice decor and overall... More

My friends at work usually order lunch from there, however, this was my first time visiting and eating from there. The atmosphere was friendly warm. The ghost hamburger was delicious, well done, not to spicy. It reminded me of homemade Saturday nights' dinner back in Brooklyn. I will go back.

As residents of the New Tampa area we have come to appreciate Oakley's delicious burgers and friendly service, so it was with great surprise that we had a sub par experience all because the staff was more focused in going home than serving their customers. We arrived a few minutes before closing time and from the get go it was... More

We go here once in a while to get our burger fix, service can be a hit or miss depending of if the boss in or not. Burgers are thick, juicy and cooked to your taste. Don't much care for their french fries as we are McDonald Fry fans. Go next door get an ice at the DQ afterwards if... More

They claimed everything to be the freshest, fish was good except a little over battered for one of the pieces. Burger was cooked good, liked the thick pickles, but wonder where what I thought to be grill marks came from, they cook on a flat top. Will go back for another try, staff/owner was friendly.

Thank David S
