Menu: The burgers are all hand shaped, ½ lb and made to order. Our personal favorite is the Vero Beach Burger, with brie, truffle aioli, arugula and caramelized onions. The burgers are juicy and tasty. You have your choice of sides, including hand-cut fries, home-made skin-on potato chips (these are to die for delicious!), and several salad options.

In addition to their burgers, 2nd Street offers an excellent selection of appetizers, including gator bites, conch fritters, and wings. Other menu items include a good variety of sandwiches, salads, pizza, and tacos.

Or, try one of the daily specials:

  • Mondays: Fish Fry and Monday Night Football
  • Tuesdays: All Day Tacos
  • Wednesdays: Burger Wednesday
  • Thursdays: Greek Night & Football
  • Saturdays & Sundays: Breakfast and bottomless Bloody Mary Bar and bottomless Mimosas

Thoughts: 2nd Street is reminiscent of the corner neighborhood bar where everybody knows your name. On Monday nights during football season, there is no shortage of games to watch. Inside there are multiple screens with different games on each, and outside on the patio, you have your choice of games on two screens. Gather your friends and watch the game and let 2nd Street do the cooking!

My recommendations:

Fried Pickles – they are fabulous! And you can’t eat just one.

Spinach Goat Cheese Pizza – covered in fresh spinach, goat cheese and roasted red peppers with a basil pesto sauce – so yummy!

2nd Street Salad – fresh greens mixed with fresh pear and dried cranberries and topped with a homemade vanilla bean vinaigrette, this salad is fantastic.

Chicken Mac – grilled chicken, and Southern-style mac and cheese topped with breadcrumbs; this dish is absolutely sinfully scrumptious.

Bistro Bang Shrimp – this is our “go to” appetizer. Succulent shrimp tossed in a sweet Thai chili aioli sauce and topped with sesame seeds, and a drizzle of wasabi sauce is sweet and tangy with just a hint of a bite.

The ambiance of 2nd Street is sports bar meets neighborhood hangout. It’s laid-back casual atmosphere, daily happy hour from 3-7 pm and fresh, tasty food make it a favorite among locals and visitors alike. 2nd Street is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
