Tampa - Hidden Gems?

Thanks for the great tips. I'm heading to Plant City for the crab cakes. Someone mentiond Charann's on Hillsborough, which has a good steak sandwich( I ate there last week), but for my money it's Chubbies Super Subs and Pizza at Bayshore and Interbay.Get the Steak Bomb. It rocks! For Fresh Mexican try the Taco Bus on Hillsborough just east of Nebraska. Has anyone tried the Jerk Hut on Fletcher yet?

OK, the debate is over. THE best burger in FLORIDA is at Cabbage Key. You can only get there by boat. It is between Boca Grand and Ft. Myers on the Gulf Coast. Can't be beat. It is where Jimmy Buffet wrote the song "Cheeseburger in Paradise" nuff said!

Local dives in Tampa

I came to "Chowhound" looking for local dives that I had not discovered yet, but you people wouldd stave to death if it wern't for chain stores. Doesn't any body know any local dives ?(dive=scary outside but good cheap food inside that the locals know about and you are just as likely to sit next to a crack whore as a guy in a tie.) Places like Chubbies Pizza in S. Tampa off bay to bay (get the steak bomb loaded) or Cheran's on Hillsborough (great phillys)
to the Taco Bus corner of Hillsboroug and Nebraska. I miss DiPerrio's on Armenia Ave., but thats the kind of place I'm looking for. Any suggestions?? Does any ot there eat REAL FOOD?
