The parking lot and exterior of the restaurant are very pleasing to the eye. Big, colorful and full of automotive art, old gas pumps, and cars. When you step inside there is a lot of antique brickwork, distressed wood mixed with a healthy quantity of stainless steel diamond plating and lots of old rubber tires, antique license plates hovering over what feels like a distressed concrete garage floor. Perfect.

On the burger front, Ford’s Garage Restaurant in Brandon has a mouth-watering selection of custom burgers that are as unique as Ford’ Garage itself. I counted 19 burgers in all but a few that stood out were: The “Kobe Beef” Distinguished Gentleman, The “Tuna Me Up”, and of course the Colossal “Henry Ford Hubcap” which is a 10 lb burger that if you can finish all by yourself in less than two hours is on the house! Good luck on that one, because if you have to pay for it, it’s a $125 bucks.
