Pulled or chopped pork BBQ, baked Mac and cheese, Brunswick Stew, cold banana pudding, and sweet iced tea or Coca-Cola. It can be found in almost any town in Georgia. Johnnys in Gainesville isn’t half bad.

Yep, this pretty much nails it! The Cubans the strawberries the seafood. Man, we got it good!

I’m originally from Rochester, NY area a LONG time ago....it would be the white hots. Terrific dogs. Still order them on occasion, a real treat.

Oh yeah, good stuff!

I mince a bit of this up and mix it with tuna salad for a good sandwich.

You are a man of refined taste. I have put chopped up jalapenos in tuna salad, but am going to try using giardiniera instead. Razz
For the ultimate tuna sandwich, use some giardiniera and layer a slice of genoa salami on it. Duke's mayonnaise, of course.


If you like tuna salad I recommend you get a good canned AK salmon to try (Kirkland Signature at Costco is great). It makes a wonderful fish salad and has a lot less mercury than tuna. I love tuna but I really only eat it raw or seared nowadays, which helps me limit my intake due to cost. I eat fish about half a dozen times a week, and a number of years ago I got away from canned tuna because of the mercury.

Fresh caught albacore tuna. Cut into 1/8"+ slices, rolled up like a cinnamon bun. One piece of bacon wrapped around the outside, held together with a toothpick. BBQ'd for about 10 minutes. First time I had this, I ate 12 of these, they were so good. That is about 3 lbs. worth, and my belly was killing me.

The Cuban food in FL is amazing. I went to Columbia Restaurant, in Celebration, a few years ago and it was great. Reminded me too of another more FL dealo which is grouper. Hard to get outside of FL regularly but so tasty. We stayed in Siesta key and ate at this a place called the Big Water Fish Market we hit up a few times. It was causal as it's a fish market with seating but the food was phenomenal. I had a grouper sandwich twice because I was afraid I'd never have one so good again. I also recall a fresh tuna poke bowl that was super refreshing. Would be worth a drive to Sarasota if you're not that far away. I will be making it back there some day.

Fresh cut, fried okra. Best stuff in the world.
Fried potatoes.
Fried sliced tomatoes.
Fried sliced cucumbers.
(We're talking "fried in lard" here.)

What state? Oklahoma
Spelling of potatoes? Check the Idaho auto tag for the spelling.

I was stuffed after eating six of these, probably 1/4 lb. each. Like a wolf who cannot stop killing, I came back and ate 6 more!

I have caught lots of lingcod, they are super for fish and chips. However fresh albacore is 5x better. Really, it is that good. May go albacore fishing again this weekend, weather permitting. Caught 16 albies a month ago, 20 miles offshore.

Not sure. There's such a mixture of ethnicities around that you can get most anything.
Pizza, sandwiches, BBQ(Texas is King tho), mexican and so on. I couldn't pick a favorite honestly.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

I grew up in West Texas, Odessa to be exact and chicken fried venison, mashed potatoes and gravy, with corn was always a staple. But my second love is real Mexican food, and some Tex-Mex.

We called them coneys in the Syracuse area which is famous for Heid's drive-in in Liverpool which serves them right. Smile
But whether you call them coneys, snappy grillers, or white hots, they're great. Best are from Hofmann in upstate NY and can be mail ordered. Smile

I agree, but that's the only way I'll eat okra. It's too slimy otherwise.

Florida boy here as well.

I can't disagree with the mullet, smoked fresh mullet is a tasty treat.

Cuban sandwiches are also a great way to fill up.

Stone crab has to be my favorite FL food though. Man oh man, I feel as though I could eat my weight in stone crab.
