Herbies in Marathon
Jimmy Buffet famously sang about his cheeseburger in paradise and he even has Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant on Duval Street in Key West, but when we go out looking for the best cheeseburger in the Florida Keys, we go to Herbies in Marathon.
Herbies is located in Marathon on the southbound side of US 1 just south of the airport. It is a small white restaurant with seating in two separate indoor sections where you get to sit on picnic tables. Herbies serves some of the best food in the Keys, and we've had some really great dinners at Herbies. Even if Herbies doesn't look fancy from the outside, trust us when we say their kitchen produces some of the best dinners. On our last visit we dropped by at lunch because Herbies makes what we think is the best cheeseburger in the Florida Keys, and it is served in a basket with fries for under ten bucks. These burgers are cooked to order and come to your table "all the way." If you are used to great cheeseburgers and crave one while visiting Marathon, we think you'll like Herbies.
