Urban Legends of Le Tub

Whenever I have out of town guests, I take them to Le Tub. 99% of the time I have a good experience and the burger is still the best in town. Every time I go, I'm fascinated by the various urban legends/rumors I hear about that place (e.g., the owners hate being busy, they once took the burger off the menu for two years, etc.)

It got me wondering...what rumors have you heard about our celebrated dive? Do you know if they're true or not?

Gulfstream Village Park in Hallandale -- any good eats?

Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up trying Brio. My God, the food there is unbelievably bad. I cannot understand how crowded that place gets. Why? Why?!
I gasped when they brought out a trough of carpaccio, nearly larger than the table. Ha! The sauces are prison-quality and the red wine was served boiling hot. And the risotto, forget it! How they can call that dish risotto is beyond me.
But hey, at least the Gulfstream is pulling in a bit of business.

Really, really, really good chicken wings?

I tried the grilled garlic wings at Wilton and thought they were pretty good. My complaints are they don't use enough sauce and the minced garlic is straight out of the jar. Next time I will try a different flavor and request extra wet.
I'm surprised to read recommendations for Bru's room, but I've never tried them. I will give the other suggestions a go too.

Seems like I'm not hearing much about places going out of business or a lot of new places going up in broward/palm beach area? Anything interesting? (I heard about Rocco's tacos and Dos Caminos)
