Goody Goody Burgers: Providing The Best American Diner Fare For Tampa Residents
At our Tampa diner, guests can sit on stools at the counter and order our famous recipes from 1925. It’s like going back in time. In fact, we’re one of few establishments in Tampa that still does this!
Being an iconic brand since 1925, Goody Goody™ is passionate about including local purveyors in as many aspects of the restaurant as it can. Thomas Sign & Awning refurbished our historic sign. Our staff uniforms are supplied by Lori Davis at Tampa T-Shirts. Even our beloved map of historic Tampa placemats were designed by longtime artist Charlie Greacen!
Here are a few of the more notable “local within local” ingredients:
* Cuban bread from La Segunda Central in Ybor City.
* Coffee by Tampa’s Naviera Coffee Mills
* Old Meeting House Ice Cream, eggs, milk and other dairy from Sunny Florida Dairy in Tampa.
* Fruit for seasonal strawberry and blueberry pies from Plant City.
* Craft beers from Coppertail Brewing in Ybor City and Yeungling, brewed in Tampa.

Miss Yvonne Freeman started at Goody Goody on Florida Avenue as a carhop in 1947 and later became a waitress, cook, pie maker and then co-manager.
When Goody Goody relaunched in Hyde Park in 2016, she shared long-guarded recipes, including the restaurant’s famous secret sauce on the Burger P.O.X. Though she passed away in 2019 at the age of 91, her spirit lives on in our warm memories of her at Goody Goody.
It’s the “secret sauce” that sets the Burger P.O.X. apart from all other burgers. Created in 1925 when Goody Goody™️ began as a barbecue stand, the sauce has stood the rest of time to make the P.O.X. Iconic.
Taste a little Tampa history today at Goody Goody — or order a box of P.O.X. To take home to the crew — and be sure to ask for a little extra sauce!
