For anyone interested, Flo's opened for the summer 2008 season this weekend. I haven't checked to see if there have been menu changes, but will report back when I do!

Once again, I am reporting on the opening of my local favorite, Flo's in Blue Point , which opens for the season today. I'll report back after I have my first meal of the year.

Hey Tony,

What's the shortest and easiest route from St Pete Beach on the lovely oil
filled Gulf of Mexico to Flos ? 

And, please save me a seat in the shade. 

Medium rare as usual.

Soutwest flies to Islip MacArthur, I'll pick you up there. It is a 5 minute ride. You want fries with that burger?

I think that's near my favorite car wash.

Tony, Maybe we can meet up with TTM for lunch this summer.

Joe,

If I am going to leave you to pick up the check, it would be at Luger's, not Flo's.

Tony----Flo's and the eryster capital of Blue Pernt owe you-----you have put them on the map-----

The Sunrise and Montauk Hwys will be loaded with cars headed to Blue Pernt
this summer. 

The sand in the sandwichs will be overlooked
as long as the burgers ain't over-cooked.

You will be famous ----honorary Mayor at least.

Tony: Interesting that you've made this post 4 years in a row and this is the first time anyone seems to have noticed. Me too, I'm adding it to my list for possible stops on a planned trip to Montauk Pt in September.

Do you know how late in the season they stay open? Their web link on your Roadfood review seems to be dead. Thanks.

I am married and have kids so I am used to no one listening to me!


They usually stay open into late September...depends on weather and their ability to keep staff after the summer. Their web site is minimal, and doesn't  list opening and closing. They are on facebook, perhaps that will prove more informative. Just send me a message when you are heading to Montauk and I'll let you know about status.

Thanks Tony. I can just give them a call the day I'm heading out.

<<I am married and have kids so I am used to no one listening to me! >.

Got it. The pecking order in my house has always been:

1. Wife
2. The kids
3. The cats
4. Me.

Yeah - inviting me to the opening was wrong, by the way.  Missed out by about a week or so.

5 years and you just figured that out? 
 
It is a short way from home, and a place I go to often during the summer. If it wasn't raining so hard I might be there for lunch right now!

ces1948, Canadian Bacon.  I think they make it that way just for Tony
 
BTW, I have had the pleasure of sticking Tony with the bill at Flo's.  The food is so good, I can't wait to do it again

Guess What?

Flo's has, as they have been doing every spring since 1926, OPENED FOR THE SEASON. Heavy rain yesterday forced an early closing, and kept me from making opening day. They added a new burger to the menu...Flo's Western Burger...jalapeƱos, cheddar cheese, chipotle sauce and an onion ring. 
 
I will report back when I try it. Any one want to join me for lunch? My treat (except JoeRogo...nah...him too).

Wow...they really expanded their web page...looky here... http://flosfamous.com/downloads/2011_flos_history.pdf
 
Wonder where this place ranks as far as the "oldest" roadfood joint?

Looking forward to my next visit.  Great food and atmosphere, especially when The Bad Man shows up.
 
On my last visit I tried the calamari.  Although it looks like it was cooked in Pennzoil, it was one of the best I eve had.
