It has a legion of devoted customers, who swear by its scrumptious appeal. The simple setting and memorabilia also add to the charm, which some have compared to a 1960’s-style drive-in.
The delectable delights served at Shake Pit are not your typical fast food. The hamburgers and cheeseburgers are old fashioned, juicy, and grilled to perfection, with a selection of several different toppings. These are two of their most popular items.
There are a number of other entrée items as well, such as hot dogs, corn dogs, chili dogs, cheese dogs, grilled cheese, fish sandwich, tuna melt, chicken tenders, popcorn chicken, and Philly cheesesteak, that are all deliciously prepared. Several yummy sides are offered, such as crinkle-cut fries cooked to crispy perfection, chili cheese fries, mozzarella sticks, and onion rings.
Many customers are especially fond of the superb ice cream treats at Shake Pit! These include shakes and malts in a variety of flavors, such as vanilla, chocolate, mocha, and butterscotch. There are also ice cream sodas offered in vanilla, chocolate, and several fruity flavors. This place is truly one of Bradenton’s treasures, so do yourself a favor by treating yourself or your entire family to a snack or a meal soon!
