KINGS Street Food Counter

937 Central Ave

Saint Petersburg, FL 33705

A black-and-white facade catches sidewalk eyes, drawing in customers to a counter-service spot with a beachy aura for hot dogs, greens and grilled cheese. The dog combos (Speedy Gonzales: cola-pork carnitas, queso fresco, pickled red onion) and grilled cheese specialties (Blue Pig: white cheddar, bacon, blueberry jam) go down easy with milkshakes, local drafts, wine or champagne (boozy lunch break, anyone?). Best part? Kings Street Food Counter (named for the owner’s English bulldog) is pet-friendly AND open until 3am Fri-Sat.
