Ybor City Espresso Shake
I must say that the service is exceptional and the Mediterranean Chicken Sandwich is awesome. The restaurant also offers house made sauces and my favorite so far is the toasted marshmallow. Sounds weird but it really goes well with the burgers. I also had an Ybor City Espresso Shake (insert happy face). Im very familiar with Ybor City which is located in Tampa, Fl so I asked the waitress why the shake was named after that particular city and she told me its because Burger 21 is originally from Tampa.
