There’s nothing like digging into a juicy burger after an eventful day in the sun.

The menu is filled with 16 gourmet burgers, plus the option to build your own. Wash it down with one (or more) of the 120 craft beers available by the bottle or on tap. Of course, Grease also serves salads, chicken sandwiches, wings, and all the tempting sides you’d expect from a classic neighborhood burger spot.

2. Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar

Rocco’s Tacos is a South Florida staple that offers a taste of Mexico in a fun and casual environment. Roccos has a diverse menu filled with burritos, quesadillas, molcajete, and tacos. The restaurant also boasts over 200 varieties of tequila if you’re feeling frisky.

3. Lynora’s

This downtown West Palm Beach restaurant serves some of the best Italian food in South Florida (a bold statement, we know). (If you don’t believe us, make a reservation at Lynora’s, then see us at the Denison display.) In 1974, Raffaele and Maria Abbenante immigrated from a tiny Italian island called Ponza, and together they began selling pizza by the slice in Lake Worth, Florida. Over the next 35 years, Maria introduced the flavors of Italy to South Florida, and Lynora’s became a South Florida favorite. The menu is filled with a variety of pastas, pizzas, entrees, soups, salads, and small plates.

A thoughtful wine list supports a menu of authentic dishes that will make you say c’est délicieux before the food gets to your mouth. Pishache has an awesome brunch menu that’s perfect to enjoy before walking to the show. Bon appetit.

5. E.R. Bradley’s Saloon

E.R. Bradley’s is a landmark bar and restaurant on the West Palm Beach waterfront. The building has been around since 1898 and was once an exclusive club opened by Colonel E.R. Bradley. Now, it’s an American restaurant with an old Florida atmosphere that’s a 1-minute walk from PBIBS 2021. The menu is full of burgers, salads, and main dishes. Don’t gloss over the raw bar — fresh oysters, clams, and ceviche are showstoppers. Does anyone else crave fresh seafood after a boat show? Just us? Cool.
