Lunchtime rolled around and I asked my co-worker if he wanted to try the Brooma Grille. We took the back roads and in no time were driving into Esposito’s parking lot on Capital Circle. The Brooma Grill is located all the way to the left end of the shopping plaza tucked in behind the Carrabba’s.
We walked in and there were several other people enjoying their lunches. I noticed that all of them were eating hamburgers. The waiter told us to sit wherever we wanted to and we seated ourselves at a high top and as soon as jean hit wooden chair our drink orders were being taken.
The inside of the restaurant was fairly spartan. White walls, a few plants and a large Brooma Grill picture over the cash register were all that adorned the wall. It was also very clean and looked like it had been scrubbed down that morning.
After looking over the menu we both decided to order the Friday Special. It consisted of a Brooma burger with double meat and fries. The burgers are cooked on a flat top diner style and come off juicy and hot. They arrived at our table less than 5 minutes after being ordered.
I added a little ketchup and then took a bite. The bun was fresh and the vegetables were crisp. The meat was juicy and the meat tasted fresh. The edges had a little brown crustiness to them. The Brooma burger is a classic diner hamburger, unpretentious and well cooked. It is one of the better hamburgers I have had in Tallahassee.
The only negative was that the portion of fries that accompanied the burger was on the small size. Despite the sprinkling of fries on my plate my lunch was filling and I enjoyed it. The food was good, the service was great and the price for lunch was right. I would go back to the Brooma Grille for another hamburger, especially on double meat day.
