    I spend 26 years in the US Air Force, and I've lived (and dined) in 12 states and about 20 cities. I've eaten in almost every major city in the US except for the Atlantic Northwest. And Tucker Duke's serves the best burgers I've ever had. More than that, the restaurant and the chef have a lot of "character"...exactly what I suspect you're looking for in restaurants to feature on your show.

    This is a must-stop for our family when we are on the way to the white sand beaches of Florida from Baton Rouge, LA. In Louisiana we KNOW great food so it takes a lot to appeal to our tastes and still have a menu that our kids can eat from! Who doesn't want to try PB&J Bon Bons or Nacho Tots?? I'm hungry just writing about it!

    These are some of the best (and most creative) burgers you'll ever eat. The atmosphere is eclectic, for sure, but the food is out of this world!

    Tucker Duke's Lunchbox in Valparaiso is awesome. Not only do they serve up 5 star burgers and really did start with just a panini press and some toaster ovens, Chef Brian has created some delicious southern comfort food and spins on things you LOVED as a child (see PB&J Bon Bons). This is a MUST SEE for Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!

    You really MUST come to Tucker Dukes! The chef Brian Cartenuto is excellent at what he does and I can vouch for his honesty and business ethics, having known him since he was a kid! The absolute BEST burgers EVER. Great value and great taste, hands down the very best burger you will ever put in your mouth :)

    I can't say enough nice things about Tucker Duke's Lunchbox!! The burgers are amazing (duh), but *added bonus* the blue plate specials that started it all are also incredible and not to be missed. The food is so good and juicy and delicious that you'll be in a Thanksgiving-style food-coma before you know it. And then you'll eat some more, because when you eat here all bets are off. It is not uncommon to see people literally licking their plates clean. It's that good.

    My family stopped here because it was the nearest place on Urban Spoon and we were hangry. We could NOT have landed in a better place. I was ready to register as a Florida resident after a taste of the maple popcorn and nacho tots. Order the Tucker Duke burger and you are welcome in advance.

    Tucker Dukes isn't just a burger joint. It's THE Burger joint. Great food, great staff, amazing atmosphere, and yeah GREAT FOOD! Was introduced to Tucker Dukes by some of my fellow service buddies when we were in EOD school. I was hooked instantly. They care about every detail, every customer, and have an absolute passion for everything they do. The military community has embraced them, and vice versa. You really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. I recommend the Mondragon...not only because it's delicious, it's named after one of my buddies who is a navy EOD tech. Oh couple things, read the menu, follow the rules, and enjoy the best damn food ever. (if your producers play their cards right they might see if they can swing a visit to the EOD school house and see if they can let you blow some stuff up!!!)

    Tucker Dukes is SO Triple D! Quirky Staff, eclectic furniture/seating, classically trained Chef, funky flavor profiles you might not expect, all packed into a 60s era Gas Station! Chef Brian comes up with some amazing culinary delights that fit between buns, and are measured by the number of napkins you use! Bring a framed picture of your Dog, and your meal is Free! Hk

    This place has the best and biggest burgers ever! I go at least once a week and Chef Brian makes my Tucker Duke personally every time I come in. My wife loves the Yousef and the story that accompanies that burger is great. In fact, all the burgers have a story and Chef Brian will tell you each one if you ask nicely and follow the cell phone use regulations. Place looks like a dive but it was a gas station in a previous life. If you want boring, go to a fast food place...If you want an amazing burger, great music and a never dull atmosphere, don't go anywhere but Tucker Duke's and don't eat breakfast!!!

    My husband did EOD school in Niceville for a few months and this was our favorite place to eat! The place has a great atmosphere, with a cheeky attitude. The hamburgers are delicious and ridiculous; one called the 'Unicorn' has a grilled cheese sandwich in it. Their sides are also amazing! I am drooling thinking about all the tasty meals we had there; and it is by far the greatest thing my husband and I miss about Florida. After that, it's no state income tax and wal-marts that sell liquor.
