David's SteakhouseApril 24, 2013

Give me a burger and fries from the dollar menu at any location and I will be as excited as a bird munching on a sand crab. However, I went out of my element one night in April when my parents were visiting from Michigan.

After I drove over to Indiatlantic on the shores of, well, the Atlantic, of course I ached for high-calorie items. Insisting on the three of us trekking over to a steakhouse, we made our way to David’s Steak and Seafood in Melbourne Beach. The place does not stand out since it is located in an old, unassuming building. David’s shares the structure with a supermarket, which could be the last remaining location I can purchase Labatt Blue Light in Florida. I am not living here because…?

All of the patrons in the restaurant were at least 50 years old, and a husband near us had a fancy-little burger placed in front of him. I wanted it, even when he told the waitress the burger was, “Average.”  Hey stuck-up ass, go back to your million-dollar estate down the road and let someone (me) appreciate its goodness. I will also make the serving staff feel better about its place of employment. If you wanted a really good burger, I am sure your maid can cook one up that is to your liking.

Unfortunately, my father would not let me get the burger. He ordered for me. As in, he requested the 8-ounce filet mignon for his son. I honestly cannot remember the last time a restaurant steak fell into my stomach, so of course I did not refuse.

Delivered medium-rare with fries and a baked potato, the steak brought out my taste buds frequently. I had low expectations since I just figured it would have a lot of fat and gristle involved. One bite led to two, then to three. Fat and gristle never appeared. Halfway through and I realized this experience needed to be duplicated, even if it boasted a large price tag compared to the rest of the menu. The term “melt-in-your-mouth” proved true in this case.

Now, regrettably, back to the dollar menu.
