While recreational marijuana isn't legal in the Sunshine State yet, there's no crime in getting the munchies. Whether you find yourself craving something over the top mid-day or late at night on a weekend when you're too drunk to drive & busy binging Netflix shows, there's one stoner themed spot that seeks to satisfy the biggest cravings, the Munchies 420 Cafe in Sarasota.
This cute little joint sits on the corner of Superior Ave and Golf Gate Drive, opening at 4:20 p.m. & staying open as late as 4:20 a.m. on the weekends. Whether you want to eat inside their 420 clad spot, sit out in the tiki area with the tunes, or have your goodies delivered if you're in their delivery area, this munchie bustin' cafe has you covered.
Their menu features comfort food staples, gigantic portions, bar-style snacks & over the top subs that they call "Fat Sandwiches" — they use 11-inch Amoroso Rolls, stuffed to the brim with fillings & an insane amount toppings.
They feature names like the "Fat Hungry Morning"; a breakfast sub stuffed with country fried steak & bacon smothered in sausage gravy, and the "Fat Sandy" made with two cheeseburger patties, mac-n-cheese, chicken fingers, onion hoops, spuds, & mozzarella stix.
We're drooling already. And these are only 2 of the 13 fat sandwiches they offer, & an even smaller portion of their massive munchtastic menu; they even have vegan options available.
Munchies also has other crave-able bites on their menu from appetizer style bar fares they call "munchitizers", chicken sandwiches & salads, to sweets, Angus burgers, wings, foot-long hot dogs & more — many of them having 420 slang references in their names like the "Ganja Chicken Sandwich" & the "Wake n' Bake Burger" that's served on a waffle.
One of their most popular munchitizers, the "Dankalicious Chicken Nugs", are made deep-fried crispy in a blend of sesame, teriyaki, and BBQ sauces topped off with black and white sesame seeds & served with a side of ranch. Share your dank nugs... or don't — we won't judge.
The bar has an indoor seating area splattered with decor adorning funny 420 references — one looks like a closed sign & says "Sorry, we're stoned". You'll also find a few arcade games to play & 420 themed craft brews. Their outdoor tiki area opens at noon, featuring live music Tuesday through Sunday with a full liquor bar.
So, who's got the munchies? We certainly do.
