GenX Tavern, a new Tampa eatery, will fill you with '80s and '90s nostalgia

There’s a new eatery in downtown Tampa that promises to take you back in time.

It’s called GenX Tavern, and this place pays tribute to everything from the 80s and 90s, the era in which Generation X grew up.

If you're in your 30s and 40s, your nostalgia level will hit the roof inside this restaurant.

From décor to the menu, there are reminders of yesteryear everywhere. There are references around every corner, including a chandelier made out of floppy discs and a Ferris Bueller painting. The menu is also a nod to the decades. There are Dunkaroos, Spaghetti-Os and a cocktail inspired by the kids drink “Tang.” 

The owner said the restaurant since its opening, even the millennials are enjoying the atmosphere.

“I think everybody – no matter their generation – looks up on those two decades really favorably,” explained Dave Burton, the owner. “So I thought, ‘How fun would it be to dedicate a concept entirely to those two decades?”
