Welcome to Tasty’s!
Tasty’s was an idea several decades in the making. Owner’s Chad and Katy Dougherty opened Tasty’s in December of 2011 after realizing that our small community of Fernandina Beach was in need of a family friendly, budget friendly dining spot that focused its efforts on quality food, service and atmosphere. After some careful consideration and a little inspiration from the past…Tasty’s was born!
Owner Chad Dougherty’s grandmother, Jean Cover, successfully ran one of Fernandina’s first quintessential “burger joints” back in the early 1960’s. The Freezette was the local hang out for teens and adults alike where servers even donned roller skates and served fresh burgers and fries curbside.
Over the course of many years hearing stories about “the good ole days” of The Freezette from not only Granny Jean herself, but from others that so fondly recalled their own memories of this place, they knew that they wanted to try and recapture some of what The Freezette brought to this community so many years ago.
Chad and Katy, along with head chef Justin Southwell, immediately began conceptualizing the menu that would focus its attention on the freshest ingredients along with age old cooking techniques that would eventually lead to the creation of the Tasty Burger!
A Tasty Burger is a proprietary blend of beef that never sees a freezer, the fries are hand cut every day and the shakes are hand scooped to order! Check out the full menu for our wide range of menu options.
Now with several years to perfect our processes and recipes, Tasty’s has began to grow in May 2016 with the opening of our second location just over the bridge in Yulee. Our growth continues with two new locations scheduled to open in late summer 2019. They will be located in WILDLIGHT – Yulee, FL and KINGSLAND, GA
No matter how much we may continue to grow, one thing that the Dougherty’s and Chef Justin know for certain, quality and consistency must never be compromised. “It is our main focus to remain true to what we do, remain relevant in our local communities, and to provide an atmosphere that is clean and welcoming to all of our customers”
