Watterson – Beef O’ Brady’s

How exactly does one end up at the Beef O’ Brady’s in Wildwood, Florida? If you are the Sandwich Gal, you graduated from Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. The highlight of your sports year is the annual Cat/Griz game. Said game is only shown in 2 venues in the entire state of Florida. One of those locations….Wildwood! I love the sports/sandwich one day road trip.  Drink in hand, Bobcat pride in full effect, I was ready for kick off. Favorite joke of the day? From my Uncle, a Griz fan: “I don’t usually talk to Montana State graduates, but when I do I order Large Fries.” Good, clean, Montana fun in Florida.

Cheers to this tasty margarita!

A recent addition to the Beef’s appetizer menu is the Hand-Breaded Pickle Chips. I love fried pickles with ranch, and these were really well done.

The World’s Best Husband (who has yet to see Montana, but pulls for my alma mater regardless) chose the Angus Pretzel Roll Sliders. I am pretty sure these were supposed to have some kind of burger enhancements (tomato? pickle? lettuce?) but they were sans any extras. Spencer thought they were wonderful in their simplicity, I thought they were decidedly meh.

The star of the day, sadly, was not the Bobcats offense. It was this gem of a sandwich: The Watterson! Roast beef, Swiss cheese, mayo, lettuce, pickles, and onions all on top of grilled rye. I would definitely get this sandwich again.

The wait staff at this particular Beef O’ Brady’s seemed a bit overwhelmed. Eventually, all food and drinks were ordered and delivered. We loved the Coca Cola Freestyle machine with the seemingly endless soda options. We did not love the outcome: Cats lose to the Griz, 28-14.  Maybe next year.

  1. Seriously, can we just hang out and eat sandwiches?! Funny enough, Jason and I went to the Odessa/Citrus Park Beef’s today to watch the Bucs. We split wings, but were perusing the menu since they seem to have more and more items, each time we go. I told Jason that I used to order the Watterson almost every time we went, when I was younger. And then you post. Haha.

  2. We haven’t been to Beefs in ages – used to go a lot when my son was little (he was in a commercial when he was 3 and they paid him in gift cards). Sounds like a fun day overall – sorry about the game tho

  3. Sandwich Gal /

    Nichole-that is too funny. Feel free to send me any sandwich suggestions, as we are apparently living parallel food lives.
    Stacey-It is my dream to one day be paid fully in gift cards. 🙂
