    Chop, they’ve got some cheese and cracker stuff. I enlisted my mother-in-law to keep junior while we gorged. We hit up the other joint owned by the same chef the next night. It was also superb.

    Interested to hear what bills favorite Wilmington establishments are. I was always partial to the bridge tender and I kept MOI and Saltworks in business in my early 20s

    Muffaleta from Central grocery

    Score.

    Pronounced “muffalotta” of course.

    Alabama Jack’s on Card Sound Road on the way to Key Largo. As much for the local experience as the food.

    Better Than Sex, which is a great place to get desserts in Key West with decidedly racy themes. Really good place to take your open-minded lady.

    Island Grill, Islamorada, FL. Breakfast. Kill for it. But they took a huge hit with Irma and the original locations are going to take some time to be restored.

    Bridge Tender is still outstanding.

    Seafood Hut in Calabash has fallen off considerably. Management changed and the service has gotten molasses slow and the food is just average now. Hate that. That had become our goto in the Brunswick Isles.

    Sadly, we haven’t been to the hut in 3 years. Hate to hear it’s gone downhill. Been going for 30 years.

    Island Grill-been there but I was awash in Miller Lite.

    Red Apple in Woodville-everyone knows they have the best deals on malt liquor in the area.

    NOTE: piss on kid menus. The young’uns eat what the adults eat.

    Note: I believe Ken’s Grill has the 6 1/2 ounce Coke.

    Are there food trucks down south? Here in the PNW there’s a lot of them, especially in Victoria. You get it on the street but it’s not “street” food. One of my faves is the Coast Lunch Box. Two of my fave dishes are the JERK CHICKEN CLUB NAAN WRAP w/ Marinated Fraser Valley chicken thighs, smoked bacon, pickled cabbage slaw & cumin aioli and the KOREAN BBQ PORK WRAP w/ Coast coleslaw, cucumbers, miso aioli and hoisin glaze in a flour tortilla.

    The great thing is that the trucks are at the large (and small) events – music festivals, art events, sports, etc. and they really add to the experience because you can get great food at reasonable prices.

    A few other faves:

    Uh yeah Plywood. More you can shake a stick at. Food trucks are fine at a brewery with ample seating.

    I was always a fan of PTs Bar and Grille in Wilmington. Best damn burger and fried you ever had. My understanding is they are franchising out now.

    In Gainesville, Longstreet Cafe is a solid meat and 3. Local produce distributors said the two restaurants that demanded the highest quality produce in Hall County were – drum roll – Longstreet Cafe and Waffle House.

    On Cleveland Hwy heading north used to be a place called Durango, I think. Don’t know if it’s still there. Best Mexican tortas ever. I liked that place better than the fabled El Sombrero restaurants, which locals dubbed “the hat.”

    On Thompson Bridge Road heading north out of town on the right was a low slung building of a restaurant. Don’t remember the name, but they had killer fried frog legs.

    Also on Thompson Bridge Road heading north, on the left near its intersection with the road that ran out to North Hall High School, was a place that served biscuits on one side in the morning and barbecue on the other side in the afternoon. Both sides were worth eating at.

    Before Katrina, some joint on the Gainesville square used to have oyster happy hour – $2.95 a dozen – between 4 and 6 p.m. That’s long gone. I know they were just Gulf oysters, but at that price I could slather them with plenty of butter, garlic, horseradish, hot sauce or all of the above.

    … the shrimp & grits at the Washington Duke Inn topped them all.

    … the shrimp & grits at the Washington Duke Inn topped them all.

    Shrimp and grits is my “bucket list” meal, in that if I had one last meal before I kicked the bucket, what would it be? I order it at any restaurant that has it on the menu, and have had it all over.

    Amazingly, the best I’ve had were not in the south………….

    Capt Stanley’s in Garner. I seen Chuck in there a few times.

    I’ve been there more times than I’d care to admit and I saw Chuck there a few times. I went because my grandparents loved it. The food there was best left for the doggie bag that they took home for their pet.

    Rye, I’ve had it all over too, and it takes a LOT to impress me cuisine wise (my avatar matches me well and well as the Yogi Bear persona). Take in the Dinner at Dusk special at Washington Duke. Three courses and the desserts are impressive too. That place went to the top of our list for THE dinner place to go in the triangle for special occasions. Oak Leaf in Pittsboro is pretty good too. I promise you that you’ll be impressed from the first bite.

    Capt Stanley’s ain’t bad for a cheap meal of seafood. I grew up 20 miles from Calabash and the state of all the restaurants down there is pitiful now days. Time was (50s/60s/70s) that Calabash was known for fresh seafood straight off the boats that pulled up to the dock around 3 PM everyday. 99 % of all seafood places now serve from frozen. YUCK!

    I still love oyster roasts because frozen is impossible there. That being said Horry’s on highway 9 at the Waccamaw River Bridge going into North Myrtle is pretty good. For really good east coast oysters head down to McClennanville (between Georgetown and Mt. Pleasant) on Highway 17. Pick up a bushel or two and roast ’em yourself. Many a day I rode 100 miles to home on my way back from the College of Charleston with 2 bushels in the back of my car. I can still remember that smell like it was yesterday. YUM!

    Seafood in Hall County!!!

    Ha!!

    Name of place, location, items or people of interest.

    If you are in San Francisco look for a place called Frascsti. Mediterranean styled grub, food is good, place is small and people mind their business.

    I was there giving a speech against modern art.

    As long as you’re in San Fran, check out Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay.

    Baxley’s was the closest thing there was to a cafeteria during my days at State. I ate lunch there roughly 3 days a week. Good stuff

    Did I say Madison Heights, Stick?

    Specific location is what Mac says.

    Nope. Downtown Madison, VA. Wilder knows it, too.
