Garbo’s Grill – Key West, FL

On our day of food in Key West, we shopped and ate our way down DuVal Street.   We had our first lunch, of a wonderful lobster roll at DJs Clam Shack, and about two hours later we had arrived for second lunch.   Garbo’s Grill is another Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives find, housed in […]

DJ’s Clam Shack – Key West, FL

In Key West for a day, as we headed out for the Caribbean, we took our day in port to wander.  We walked Duval Street, dodging in and out of shops looking for treasures and, on my part, scoping out food choices.  My dear wife remembered she had seen a couple of things on Diners, […]

Singleton’s Seafood Shack – Mayport, FL

On the way back to the Jacksonville airport from a meeting in Southeast Georgia, we had plenty of time to stop for dinner.  The last time that we were making this swing (on a trip that included the Gold House and St. Mary’s Seafood and More), we discussed going to Singleton’s Seafood Shack but realized […]

The Ravenous Pig – Winter Park, FL

Heading down to Orlando for a three day convention, one of the first things that I did was Google for the best buger, as there were no central Florida entries in Hamburger America.   One of the places that was on multiple lists was the Ravenous Pig, up in Winter Park.  One of the blog reviews […]

The Red Bar – Grayton Beach, FL

Whenever we’re along the Emerald Coast, we manage to squeeze in a dinner at the Red Bar.  That generally means getting there right after they open.  It’s a bar, plain and simple.  As you pass through the freaky door, you enter a place that is SO PACKED with tables and people that you wonder how […]

Great Southern Cafe – Seaside, FL

Sometimes you end up with a burger in an “odd” place.  We went to the Great Southern Cafe in Seaside, FL, for lunch.  You may, or may not, be familiar with Seaside.  It is a highly planned community between Panama City and Destin on 30A.  It was also the backdrop for the movie the Truman […]

Barefoot BBQ – Seaside, FL

So, after my bad dinner / Jo’s excellent dinner at the Shrimp Shack, I was still hungry.  As we walked back to the car, we came upon the wonders of AirStream dining at Seaside.  There are six trailers parked along 30A and, for my sudden snack need, I chose Barefoot BBQ. Barefoot is spread among […]

The Shrimp Shack, Seaside, FL

One of the challenges of going to the beach is deciding where you’re going to eat.  Do we eat at some place we know?  Or do we strike out on a new adventure?  Saturday night, we decided to try some place new.  We were heading down to Seaside, to either Bud and Alley’s Taco Bar […]

Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, Miami, FL

In February, I had occasion to be in South Beach on business.  Coincident to this trip was the Miami Beach Food & Wine Festival.  So Jo and I decided to tack on an extra day or two to the trip.  Before we left, Jo had seen Michael Schwartz on “Martha” talking about his restaurant in […]

Le Tub – Hollywood, FL

2011 WAS the year of the burger. Okay, at least it was one of the years of the burger. In March, heading to Miami for a conference, on the way south from the Fort Lauderdale airport we stopped to eat at Le Tub Saloon. This was another recommendation from Hamburger America. In 2006, it was […]
