I recently attended a tax conference in Tampa, and ate lunch one day at Ford’s Garage in Brandon.  The restaurant, an official Ford Motor Company licensee, describes itself as

 your neighborhood burger and beer joint, where everyone is welcome. Located in Historic Downtown Fort Myers, FL, Cape Coral, Miromar Outlets in Estero, Wesley Chapel, Westchase, Brandon, and Dearborn, MI. Ford’s Garage will give you the vibe of being in a 1920’s service station/prohibition bar with its old style brick, dark colors, rich wood and hand-hammered copper bar top. With many more unique features too numerous to list, really making The Garage a fun place to visit!

Ford’s Garage Kitchen is called the “Assembly Line.”

Although they call themselves “A Gourmet Burger Bar,” I had soup and a salad for lunch. It was very good!

I got a laugh over the hose-clamp napkin ring on my table.

Here are a few more of my photos from the restaurant.

If you’re ever near one of their locations, I recommend you check them out, especially if you are a “car-buff.”
