Naples Area Recommendations for Honeymoon

If you are looking for BBQ, try either Texas Tony's or Michelbobs. Go to Texas Tony's for the Brisket or Michelbobs for the Ribs.

For Seafood, go to Steamers. It's not on the water but the lobster roll is to die for.

Breakfast try Sunburst Cafe. It's a local place, owned by locals. Try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffin.

On the Water location, try HBs on the Gulf. It's in the Naples Beach & Golf Hotel.

Key West Grub & Drive to Key West from Naples

Hello All:

We will be driving to Key West from Naples later this summer.

I am looking for any food locations along the way to Key West and back. Taking our time there and back so looking for as many locations as possible.

Then, will be in Key West for 2 Days. Looking for great, local places for a good meal. Will need Lunch & Dinner. No Cuban food. Otherwise, love it all. Maybe a ice cream/treat place in there too.

Let's Start it Up!

Need 1 Dinner Place - Tampa

Need 1 Dinner Place - Tampa

Howdy!

I will be in the Downtown Tampa area next Friday night for the Sugarland Concert. I am staying at the Marriott Waterside and the concert is at the 1-800-ASK GARY Ampitheatre.

Looking for a resturant/location to eat dinner before the concert. Ideally, some where between the Hotel and the Ampitheatre.

Nothing fancy. Relativley inexpensive. Would prefer it to be American, Burgers, BBQ. No Asian or Mexican.

Also, must be some where we can get in and out of in good fashion. I don't believe the food trucks would still be running at this time?

Any feedback is appreciated!!

Thanks!

Chicago/Oakbrook Terrace Trip - Summer - Need Ideas!

Perfect! Custard is great and we don't have any of that where we live. And, a local institution of Italian Ice is just what we are looking for. Local is key. Thank you!

Chicago/Oakbrook Terrace Trip - Summer - Need Ideas!

Thank You again for all of your input. Do you think any of those BBQ places are a do not miss? If so, I would be fine with doing BBQ on Monday night for dinner and Chicago Hot Dog for dinner on Monday. I am not a hot dog eater but, obviously we need to make a stop at one of the locations. I feel as if I may be leaning more towards going out to Superdawg but we will see.

I've heard a lot about the Chicago mix Garrett's popcorn so we will put that on our list for sure.

I will look further for ice cream or see if any one else responds on that.

Thank you so much for all of your feedback. As I put more of the trip in stone, I will update.

Thanks

Okay so we will be able to key some things in now. Saturday for dinner we will def do Giordanos in Oakbrook for dinner.

Sunday before the Cubs game, Las Asadas sounds good to me. We love authentic tacos and this will be perfect. Would rather just get a snack at the game if needed.

I'm fine going out of the way for Superdawg but, only if that is a total must do as far as Chicago Dogs go. Know anything about The Weiners Circle? Worth a bother?

Monday for lunch, Italian Beef joint will probably be the way to go. Is there one that is in the downtown area that is a must do?

Monday for dinner I'm still not sure. My only concern with Greek is the 18 year old. Is there another good dinner place en route to Oakbrook or in Oakbrook? BBQ maybe?

Will certainly try to find a Garrett's Popcorn Location for a snack on Monday. Are there many of them in the Downtown/Navy Pier area?

Would love at least 1 idea for Ice Cream from anyone. Does Chicago have an ice cream speciality - creamy whip, custard, anything??

Thank you again...I love your feedback

Chicago/Oakbrook Terrace Trip - Summer - Need Ideas!

Thank you for all of the ideas!!! Cheap/Inexpensive is $10 - $15 bucks per person.

Would like to try places that are area landmarks/must dos. No need for Fast Food places unless there is a must do that is just in Chicago.

No Asian food. We love Mexican Food. We will have a car so will be able to travel a bit.

Do you think its better to eat lunch before Wrigley or at Wrigley? I'm sure the prices are insane in the park but, if there is a must do.

We won't be going to Chinatown or doing Persian food...18 year old is kinda picky.

Sub/sandwich places are good along with 1 hot dog place, Italian beef, any of that.

Snacks - sweets, popcorn and 1 ice cream place is a must!

Thanks!

Best Lunch Spot Between South Bend Airport and Notre Dame

Hi All:

I am looking for the best lunch spot between the South Bend Airport and Notre Dame campus (or on campus). I will be flying into South Bend on a Saturday afternoon and looking to have lunch either on my way to Notre Dame or on Campus. Looking for something casual, low key, where I won't have a problem getting in.

Total foodie up for the best South Bend has to offer!

Thanks!

Chicago/Oakbrook Terrace Trip - Summer - Need Ideas!

Hi Everyone:

We will be visiting Chicago this summer (Saturday, Sunday, Monday) and need ideas. Looking for cheap/inexpensive places that are must-do's. Will be celebrating an 18th Birthday and he wants to go to 'must-do's.'

Saturday - Need a dinner place in Oakbrook Terrace as we will be staying there

Sunday - Will be at the Cubs game at 1:20pm. Lunch at Wrigley - need the must do's. Then, need a dinner place either in Chicago, en route to Oakbrook Terrace or in Oakbrook Terrace

Monday - Will do the Navy Pier and Downtown Chicago. Need a lunch place around Pier/Downtown and dinner either in Chicago, en route to Oakbrook Terrace or in Oakbrook Terrace

Chicago Pizza place is not a must but an option. Do we go to Superdawg just for the experience or better else where? Any snack places or food trucks that are just killer?

I am a total foodie and looking for as much feedback as I can possibly get!!!

Thank You All!

Quick Weekend Atlanta Trip...Need Ideas/Review of My Ideas

I was trying to get in the Green Lot (my grandfather is in wheelchair) but it looks like it is full so I will try for the Blue Lot now. Is the Bull Pen BBQ place inside or in shade at all? We are planning on getting to the stadium early. Thank You! Do you know of any site that shows all food spots in the stadium?

Quick Weekend Atlanta Trip...Need Ideas/Review of My Ideas

We have been to World of Coke and the Aquarium both since they were re-done and don't plan on going again this trip. I have heard a lot of good things about the Silver Skillet so, I will try to work that in. Thanks for the suggestions for Turner Field as well...we will certainly be trying them!

Quick Weekend Atlanta Trip...Need Ideas/Review of My Ideas

Hello Everyone:

We will be in Atlanta this weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) and would love some input/further ideas!

We arrive on Saturday and are going to The Varsity for lunch...yes, I know how most people feel on this but it is a request of others in our party. What is the must-eat item here? Chili-Cheese Dogs, Onion Rings, Frosted Orange...anything else?

Saturday night we are going to the Braves game so will eat at Turner Field. Any stands at the Field that serve anything tasty?

Sunday we will be eating breakfast at the hotel (Hilton Garden Inn Downtown – where the Legal Seafood Is). We will then either go right to the CNN Center or stay near the hotel and do the Park/World of Coca Cola. So, I would like to have lunch ideas for both areas. I don’t really want to eat lunch at CNN Center but will if one of the restaurants/fast eats there is a must do. After lunch, will plan on going to the Bank of America Tower and whatever else we don’t do in the morning. Thinking of either Glady’s Knight Chicken & Waffles or Mary Mac’s Tea Room for dinner…how does everyone feel about these locations? Are either of them worth our time or are their better places to go to?

Also, any recommendations around these areas for ice cream or cupcakes would be appreciated!

Thanks!!!
