We had picked up Nikki’s mom, Nikki’s 4-year-old cousin, and our 2-year-old niece for a fun day in the sun. The toddler was out cold after screaming for 10 minutes, so we took a roundabout way from Spanish Fort and let her sleep in the car a little while before going in. We’re not parents yet, but we’ve learned that many situations can be remedied with food or sleep… and a combination of both is even better.
GooRoo’s is on Highway 59 on the way to the beaches in Baldwin County. We had been once before and knew it could please everyone, seeing as it has some of the best burgers, seafood, and gumbo in Baldwin County.
GooRoo’s offers indoor and outdoor seating. The space is just the right size… big enough to accommodate a few of your friends, but not so big that you’ll get lost on the way back from the bathroom.
The menu offers a variety of appetizers, seafood baskets, sandwiches, wings, etc. Just the just the right number of options to satisfy everyone without anyone feeling overwhelmed.
We decided to each get something and share. Nikki went with the fish tacos ($9.49). They were good, we enjoyed them… but unfortunately there are 2 others places in Baldwin County that do them better, Rosie’s Grill and Felix’s. I can’t order fish tacos anywhere without comparing them to Rosie’s or Felix’s… but that won’t stop me from ordering them anywhere and everywhere.
I got the 1/2 lb. GooRoo burger ($8.49) with grilled veggies. I highly recommend the burger. It’s not fancy at all, no imported cheese or truffle oil, just really good grilled flavor. It makes you remember that there is a difference between a burger and a good burger.
GooRoo’s continues to deliver as one of the most consistent spots in Baldwin County. We usually like to discover new places, but it’s hard when you know that places like this are just there, waiting for you to give them another visit. There’s a reason their Urbanspoon score is so high. Check them out.
