SAFETY HARBOR, FL (WFLA) -

No doubt, dining out is a popular pastime here in Tampa Bay. We're here to keep you informed. Here's this week's "dish" about what's happening at Tampa Bay restaurants.

The new Burger Monger in Safety Harbor is scheduled to open on June 30. The restaurant's menu includes classic American fare.

Burger Monger serves Kobe beef, which had been previously only available in Japan until 1994, when a breeding herd was exported to the U.S.

“No other restaurant touting Kobe beef comes close to this 100% pure Japanese beef. Our beef is 2 to 3 grades above USDA Prime and is arguably the healthiest ground beef on the planet," said Burger Monger General Partner, Jake Hickton in a news release.

BurgerMonger also serves antibiotic and hormone-free natural Coleman chicken, Idaho Imperial Premium Grade Burbank potatoes cooked into natural beef tallow, a veggie burger, and hand-dipped Häagen-Dazs® shakes and malts.

“We only make food that we would love to eat ourselves,” said Hickton.

The Safety Harbor Burger Monger will be located at 2454 McMullen Booth Rd. Burger Monger has locations in Wesley Chapel, Brandon, and Willow Grove, PA. Learn more. 

4 Rivers Smokehouse will be opening a new location in Carrollwood. The Orlando-based Texas-style smokehouse will open next year and will be located in the Shoppes of Carrollwood, according to the Tampa Bay Times.  Learn more.

And, a restaurant that you might expect to see in Orlando will be opening in the West Bank. The International Business Times is reporting that a SpongeBob SquarePants restaurant is scheduled to open in Palestine. The family-style restaurant will be a replica of Mr. Krabs eatery located in Bikini Bottom. Learn more.
