Grant Christmas Wishes With Us

 

Every year we host a giving tree at the front of the restaurant with “ornaments” that our staff and foodie customers can take home and use to grant a Christmas wish. Each ornament is for a child in need via the Foster Angels of Hillsborough County or includes wish list items for Humane Society of Tampa Bay’s for the food, toys & treats, and cleaning products they need to care for animals until they find their forever home. Next time you come to Datz or Dough to get your foodie fix, check out the tree and if you can help a child or animal, that’s great!

CHEAT on January 28

Hey Foodies!

It’s time to celebrate 7 years of “cheating” in South Tampa. It’s our birthday and we’ll start a foodie holiday if we want to!

National Cheat Day Logo

NATIONAL CHEAT DAY is meant to celebrate life’s greatest indulgence— food. On January 28, we want you to be over the top, because we know after “cheat day” ends you’ll go back to being your responsible (most of the time), health-conscious (is butter a carb?) self.

Think of NATIONAL CHEAT DAY like National Doughnut Day, National Bacon Day, or National Pumpkin Pie, but WAY BETTER.

Share your “cheat day” food with us by hashtagging #NationalCheatDay on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook on January 28. You can join in on the foodie fun from ANY city, restaurant, or home.

If you do plan on coming to Datz to spoil yourself on NATIONAL CHEAT DAY, we highly recommend The Cheesy Todd, the ultimate cheat food: 100% fresh ground chuck, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickle, with— wait for it— two bacon-jalapeño mac n’ cheese “buns”!
