Jimmy Buffett’s Cheeseburger in Paradise

“The Cheeseburger in Paradise story has been passed down, and it changes a bit in each telling,” says Margaritaville concept chef Carlo Sernaglia. “Here is the real story, straight from Jimmy:

‘Back in 1974, I sailed into Roadtown, Tortola, after a few days of hard weather. We were tired and hungry, but in those days, gourmet restaurants were few and far between in the British Virgin Islands. So it was with a great deal of excitement when we read in the cruising guide of the new Village Cay marina and restaurant in Roadtown. We tied up our boat and dashed for the patio, where we feasted on burgers and the available accoutrements. Regardless of what other stories you have heard, that is the story of the real birth of the cheeseburger in paradise that was put to song. I know. I was there.’


Each and every time we make a cheeseburger, we want it to taste as good as the one Jimmy had. We make sure this happens by using really high-quality ground beef and seasoning it liberally with our House Spice Blend (which would make anything taste good), and then we’re generous with cheese and our Paradise Island Dressing. Don’t forget to have lots of napkins handy.”
