The other day my son and I took the day off work because we had business to take care of. Our appointment was in the morning so we decided to do something instead of going straight home. We were trying to decide where to go eat lunch and since we had never been to Ford’s Garage we decided to go there.

I love different, and this restaurant was definitely different. I absolutely loved it!

We both decided to get a burger and since you can choose which patty you want, we both ordered the Kobe beef. We’d never had a Kobe burger and it was the best burger either one of us had ever had, anywhere. You can click on the link above and then click “Food Menu” to see the other burger options.

I couldn’t stop taking photos! It is the most unique restaurants I’ve ever been to. Check it out!

 The front door with gas nozzles for handles


Old Timey Gas Pumps, the front outside wall are glass garage doors


There are 3 or 4 old vehicles outside


There are even some inside the restaurant, hanging from the ceiling


The menu is leather


The napkins are grease rags secured by metal clamps


My burger with fries


Anthony’s burger with mac & cheese, served in a mini cast iron skillet


The bathroom door handle was also a gas pump nozzle


The sink was a tire, the faucet a gas pump nozzle


Photo of the water running


Urinals were beer kegs (son took this photo of course)


Don’t you think this is a neat restaurant? We both loved it and we’ll definitely be going back!

    best… mae at

  12. What a great looking restaurant! I love all the themed touches and the name on the bun is really fun. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bison burger but I’d definitely have to try one. Sounds like an awesome lunch and a really fun experience!
