Wow! It must be a big deal to close. I worked at the scuzziest restaurant in Melbourne, the South Winds Cafeteria (formerly Trade Winds) in 1972 and we only got a 24 hr closure to make sure we killed all the rats and roaches and made the toilets functional. Yuck.

I was reading up on it at the health dept's website. Lots of past violations, most related to outdated food and improper temperature & storage. Current violation included roaches.

They've been getting hit with enough basic/intermediate violations over the last few years that owners/managers either don't know what they're doing or don't give a shit.

Their license was up for renewal on 4/1. Not sure if they were planning on renewing, or just letting it all go to hell and make all the $ they can before closing it up.

I had a decent brunch there about a month ago. Sad to see such a longtime institution go down like that. 30 years in Satty?

I don't think I'll eat there again unless it's under new ownership as well as management.

At the old location I was having brunch and massive Palmetto bug was making his way across the dining room floor, much to the horror of the after-church crowd. We laughed it off since Palmetto bugs just come with the territory in FLA, and as long as he wasn't in my omelet I wasn't worried.

For 3/11, from: https://www.myfloridalicense.c...tID=7885452&id=7371911

High Priority - - From initial inspection : High Priority - Roach activity present as evidenced by live roaches found. 1 live roach crawling on the cutting board in the prep Area. 1 live crawling on slicer on the slicer in prep room. Approximately 200 live roaches crawling on the floor under 5 black crates in kitchen. **Warning** - From follow-up inspection 2022-03-11: 2 live roaches on cookline No vacate per Cindy Ross at 944am **Admin Complaint**


Same site says their 3/14 inspection met standards, but their long history of violations is not very inviting to me.

Facebook says their owner has decided to move on and do something else. Business is for sale. Someone else may buy it and retain the name. I think their liquor license can stay with the business/location.

Same here, but in my situation it WAS in my omelet. I complained and they proceeded to kick me out. I've never been back since.

Maybe Bunky's will come back. That was the only restaurant that was successful at that location.

Bring back the A-Frame, home of the wet beef. It was far more successful than Bunky's.

When I walked into the "Frame" my drink was at the bar waiting for me.

I'm surprised you were a local there. I would have guessed the Golden Dolphin. We moved down to Laurel Ct. (off Cassia which is where the A-frame was) in Feb '72, but I generally drove up to the Golden Dolphin because that's where my old neighborhood crew was. (I lived on SE 3rd for a year and NE 2nd St for 12.) We'd shoot pool and drink pitchers in the Dolphin, but went over to the Rocket for a real drink.

Ya, always went to the Dolphin to see Milt. Great Burgers.

Went into the Rocket for the first time whan I was about 10. For the most part I was one of the only "crew" who was never put on the Rocket's "banned list".
