If anyone has enjoyed the chicken wings from Candlelight Inn in Scarsdale, NY, you should know that there is a sister restaurant in St. Augie.

duplicate post




Was it that important?




I can't help if the website values the gravity of my comments and has to post them twice


I think it was more like it regurgitated it.

Not WJ's big "Stay Tuned" but I was in Jacksonville last week and will post on a trip report about the full trip. There appeared to be some earlier interest in BBQ so I ventured out to Gator BBQ to see if it lived up to it's hype.  Gator is relatively easy to get to from the airport.  Go south on 295 to I-10 West then take the next exit (355) which basically means stay in the exit/entrance lane on I-10, less than a 1/4 mile.  Go left on Devoe at the end of the short exit road. Then right on Cahoon about a mile and you can't miss the sign on your right

I was there at 4:30 int he afternoon and the place was hopping.  Decent Chopped Pork Sammie. Okay Mac&Cheese (see trip report for a better version in JAX) and slightly bitter collards, but they had the pepper sauce.

Closer look at the pork:

 
They had ribs and other things that looked good.  Giant cups for soda or tea, sweet or unsweet. Lime instead of lemon.  And you can buy bottles of Cheerwine soda, cane sugared.  Supposed to be a cherry infused soft drink only available in the southeast.
Worth a trip.  Place is small and some outside seating but not a place for a large group.

Thanks so much for posting crew84row
 
Gator's BBQ looks solid- I and I believe if we don't have a particularly large group, I think this would be an excellent choice for the first official "not the Glee Club" dinner on Friday February 19.
 
As for Chi Town Diner, he's forcing me to work overtime today because I usually don't stop to post on Roadfood while I'm at work. When I do post during the day it's when I go home for lunch.

I will post more this evening with some thoughts and plans.

Update
 
Although we're still 3 months away some of you who will be flying in may want to consider airfare now. 

I think its still way to early to put together a roster of attendees, but that's something we'll probably want to consider immediately after the  New Year.
 
Here are some restaurants that have been thrown around per various discussions especially this past Sunday when I got together with Chi Town Diner and Chibears15. There is no formal itinerary yet, and neither of these restaurants with the exception of Saltwater Cowboys is set in  stone.  The itinerary  will probably firm up after the new year.
 
Saltwater Cowboys- St Augustine-  this will likely be Dinner on Saturday February 20
 
Gator's BBQ- Jacksonville
 
Barbara Jean's- Ponte Vedra Beach- breakfast Saturday or Sunday
 
Beach Road Chicken Dinners- Jacksonville
 
Bunnery- St Augustine- breakfast Saturday or Sunday
 
Osteen's Restaurant- St Augustine- this will not be an officials stop due to its size and logistics, but I encourage everyone to check Osteens out, I know that we will

Chickenplucker notified me last night that the Daytona 500 is going to be in town that weekend. Something to keep in mind as far as getting a hotel early.  Priceline is a great asset.
 
Most of us will be centered in and St Augustine.

Thanks Karilyn for picking the date with probably the most expensive hotel fees...looks like another long weekend sleeping in my car and showering in wanderingjew's room.

We are scheduled for a 6 day fishing expedition based in Panama City and points South and West, from Jan.30 to Feb.7 with a day of travel at each end of the fishing time.  This trip is focused on Tuna and Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) at some of the deepwater oil rigs, with some near-shore and pier fishing for Amberjacks and other table-fare seafood  as backup time depending on the weather outcome.
 
As a result our time for play the rest of the month will be curtailed. We wish you all an enjoyable experience.

Mr. Mayor, dorado is the Latin American name for dolphin, which Hawaiians call mahi mahi. Catch a few bull dolphin -- maybe around 50 pounds each.

Hello Everyone,
 
I went through the thread and compiled a list of possible attendees:
 
WanderingJew +2 (including Big Boy in this)
ChiBears15
Mrs. ChiTownDiner (CTD is not invited though.  Dale and I ultimately decided the group is better off without him.)
MikeS
billyboy
chickenplucker
Large Man
Keysey42
Will_work_4_bbq (Hope you can make it because I had fun with you in Arkansas!)
crew84row (thanks for checking out Gator's for us)
Karilyn +1 +2 maybe +3
 
That's what I have so far.  Post here and I will add you to the list. I am still hoping Michael Hoffman and Lisa (lleechef) decide to join us because they both love Northern Florida .
 
Based on crew84row's post, I think it would make sense to call Gator's in advance to give them a rough estimate of when and how many of us will be eating there.  We might overwhelm them if we all just show up. 
 
Cheers,
Danny

Wanderingjew - great start to the list, can't wait for the coffee houses (you) and bakeries (me) to be added.  I'll probably get a little more serious with the research during the holidays when I have some time off work! 
 
ChiBears15 - I will be wearing my Carolina Bob disguise so I will easily slip by your defenses!

Although it most likely won't be an official stop because there is no seating available,  another BBQ Joint that was previously mentioned on the thread  and looks very promising  is Smokin D's in St. Augustine for those who have extra time and extra stomach space.

WJ . . . Did you share my version of a spreadsheet that I sent you with anyone?? I'm sure it's not up to CTD's standards though!

CTD . . . Cars riding around in circles is NOT on my radar. Sorry! I hope you have a big car and that WJ saves you some hot water in his shower!

BB . . . I just saw him in NYC . . . it's more likely that he'll be in Pittsburgh in the spring. But my fingers are crossed that we see him in FL and PA.

Sorry to be so late to this party. It's student assessment time and I have so much work on my plate right now . . . looking forward to filling my plate with all of the above that you've all been chatting about!

Hoping to book my flights any day now!

Yes, I did share it with CTD a few months back and his response was "where's the food?"

it would be great to see you and your lovely better half. I enjoyed meeting the both of you on the Charlotte bus tour

Karen,
 
I'm hoping your "maybe" becomes a definitely. I don't think I've seen you in over 5 years since the Central Rhode Island tour

Adding bigbear to the list we have a potential 20 attendees. Let's see who else will possibly want to attend this fun in the sun middle of winter weekend event.
