Ford’s Garage Serving Up Burgers With A Side Of Automotive History

Sponsored Links

Ford Motor Company, as most are already aware, has quite a rich history as one of America’s most important manufacturing companies. That history also translates to a pretty cool dining experience, it turns out, as Ford’s Garage is proving at multiple locations across Florida, one in Indiana, and of course, a Dearborn, Michigan location.

Each Ford’s Garage restaurant is designed to look like a gas station from the 1920s and is filled with vintage Ford vehicles, fixtures, and gas pumps. Even the bars inside the restaurants are decidedly vintage, mixing prohibition-style elements like brick, richly colored woods, and a copper bar top that’s hammered by hand. It’s almost like stepping back in time, in a decidedly good way.

However, aside from all of this nostalgia, Ford’s Garage is a good old fashioned burger and beer joint, too. The eatery features a pretty extensive selection of hamburgers made from a variety of meats (and a vegetarian option), as well as gourmet toppings. And for those non-burger lovers, the Garage also serves up a variety of other options including everything from salads to mac and cheese. And it can all be washed down with a variety of craft beers.

The original Ford’s Garage opened up in Fort Myers, Florida back in 2012, less than a mile from Henry Ford’s winter home. In the years since, the concept has become quite popular and expanded to include a number of locations, most of which are located in the state of Florida.

And as one might imagine, the restaurant also hosts quite a few cruise-ins and special Blue Oval-themed events for fans of the brand, including a Model T owner meetup and charity fundraisers. All of which sounds like a great excuse to get out, enjoy some good old fashioned nostalgia, and snag some grub at the same time.

  1. A tough time to be opening restaurants period, but it’d be nice to see one come to the Pittsburgh area. I’m sure it would have plenty of patrons! Any plans for future expansion?

  2. Ford’s Garage is a great place for good food and great atmosphere for anyone that loves cars and nostalgia , burgers are excellent among other offerings of a large beer selection and the best fish and chips in Florida.

  3. We saw the one In Orlando and had to go in. Awesome place with great food. Well done. However it will be a long time before we see another one as the Canada-U.S. border is closed.
