Re:Places in Jacksonvile
This is my city! Beach Road Chicken is awesome. Served family style. Free refills on all the sides. I skip the cole slaw-I dont' eat it anywhere, and we skip the rice. The biscuts are yummy little morsels, the cream peas are too die for, my daughter goes just for them! The chicken is super!! I always get honey to put on the biscuts and the chicken. This place has been here Forevah! Superquick service and boy does it get packed. I also love the Secret Garden Cafe on Beach Blvd. east of Southside Blvd. It is tucked in a stripmall so keep your eyes peeled. Homemade food and to die for Coconut Cake!! I learned the hard way order your cake when your order your food. You snooze, you lose!! Bomba's is west of Southside still on Beach Blvd. Food is home cooked. The owner is biker friendly and certain nights it is packed with bikes and has a band that plays in the outside seating area. If you don't eat anything else there, pray Michelle has baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie that day. This pie is AWESOME!! My husband and I have been enjoying this pie for over 20 years! Just ordered one from her for Christmas. Out on Mayport Road right by the exchange is Bongiorno's. This place does a Philly Cheesesteak justice. They get their meat from Jersey and they fly in Amaroso rolls. They also sell Tastykakes, although since Flowers bought Tastykake you can buy them everywhere. Only thing missing is Birch Beer and I feel like I am in NEPA visiting the family. Went to Metro Diner once-the original site-found a hair under my hash browns. I know stuff happens but the way they handled it made me promise I would never go back-and I never had. They built a Waffle House upthe street and that made me a happy girl! Enjoy!!
