    I'm gonna do a hushpuppy thread one of these days. It's not rocket science.

    A Fiesta Pup is a hot dog with chili, cheese and onions on it. The owner was from Texas.

    I'm in Kendall. All 3 will be somewhat of a drive, but worth it. Shiver's is on US-1 and the other two are on Krome Ave.

    If you're here on a weekday, with school in session and not right before a holiday, I also strongly suggest Knaus Berry Farm. Best sticky buns, produce and milkshakes around. People happily line up for 2 hours at a time, but if you go on a weekday morning you can in in and out in 20 mins.

    I'll try to stop in soon, since I seem to spend a lot of time on Highway 13 and Highway 65. I could cut through on Highway 32 and go through Halfway.

    It is certainly difficult not to reminisce about the old place that used to be there, Dick's Halfway Inn. Perhaps you've heard of it.

    Yeah, when we bought the place a few years ago I pitched that name to the little woman. She said no.

    His thrice fried chips recipe is killer.

    I haven't tried the space chips.

    Yup. Unless I'm mistaken, it got destroyed in Hurricane Andrew but was re-built just up the street and looks almost exactly the same. They have business cards with a picture of the original building, and it could easily be the same building.

    (Sorry for the late reply, just got back from my own trip)

    Without this on their menu, they are just another over priced gip joint. aaaaaaaaaaaaathPBBFTNL8.jpg

    Never more than 30 minutes away, no matter where I am (in the US), most items are unprocessed, large $1 and $5 menus, fast, items are prepared to order, in front of you, and the best thing you'll put in your mouth after a gig:

    Haven't been back in awhile, but there was this Berkley (Mich) Coney Island diner
    that was to die for. Of course up there they have a billion coney island
    places. Probably double that old NY amusement spot.

    Trip Advisor?
    That's the game show of restaurant reviewing sites.
    Au Crocodile only has one Michelin star and even Trip Advisor gives it 4.5 out of five "things".

    It's actually a tie between:

    Big City Burrito in Fort Collins, Colorado, and Village Coffee Shop in Boulder, Colorado.

    Honorable mention: that gyro street cart on Pearl Street at 3am.

    I've spent a lot of time in the Limousin region of France, where their best beef is raised, and while I've had some unbelievably good steaks there (and foie gras, sometimes on the same plate) nothing compares to the best burrito or diner breakfast in the galaxy, much less our puny planet :)

    Maybe that's just the college stoner in me talking :lol:

    I knew there had to be a good restaurant owned/run by a Marine, somewhere.

    God Bless the Marines, but by and large, those guys are responsible for some of the very worst food served in small restaurants anywhere in the USA. These folks are tough and thus they'd eat anything. And so they'll serve anything. I'd love to show my appreciation for their service anyway I can but my stomach and gastrointestinal system and memory just can't handle this kind of abuse. Could I be a Marine? Assuredly not.
