Mini Chef Frank

Meet Chef Frank

Frank Edgar has shown sign of being an amazing chef since a very young age. Actually the cute 4-year-old from Saint Petersburg then was being featured in a newspaper ad campaign for the H D cafeteria chain. The "mini-chef" Frank really got into his work as he prepared to make a tasty soup du jour.

Today chef Frank continues his passion for cooking and creats special delicious comfort food weekly at Cafe Ten-O-One.  


The Dink Burger

One day a policeman working at Tropicana Field during a Tampa Bay Devil Rays game casually mentioned Cafe Ten-O-One to a team executive. Rick Nafe, vice president of Operations and Facilities for the Devil Rays, acted on the tip and now ranks it among his favorites for lunch. Frank and the Ray's Clubhouse even created the secret sauce for a legendary Dink Burger together!

Cafe Ten-O-One offers a casual atmosphere and a selection of more than 10 types of burgers, along with an array of salads, sandwiches, wraps and more from 7 am to 2 pm weekdays. Don't forget to ask for The Dink Burger - Ray's Clubhouse favorite!
