NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - There's something new sizzling in North Fort Myers.
Mister Bacon opened a week and a half ago on Pine Island Road. It's a place where bacon lovers can pig out on everything from a peanut butter bacon burger to a grilled cheese with bacon and bacon jam. There's even a bacon milkshake flavored with a touch of bacon grease and topped with a piece of bacon. Owner John Giaquinto said he was inspired by his love of bacon and by TV shows that made him realize he was not alone in his pork passion.
"People kind of look at me funny when they see bacon shake," Giaquinti said. "But, when they taste it, then they love it because we make it with bacon and we actually put a slice of bacon in it so that you get it, and it's really good."
The owner said while any fast food isn't necessarily a good choice for every day eating, he reminds customers that bacon has more protein than fish - which is a future menu item that will be wrapped in bacon.
