Wouldn't be surprised, fried fish. They are getting to be as well known as other more-famous Memphis BBQ outfits like the Rendezvous and Interstate Barbeque.

There is a local place here called Tom's BBQ Pit. He started out with just a little stand in the summer months. Now he has 2 places in town... actual restaurants. People flock there for the best bbq'd chicken and potato salad in town!

Several come to mind. The Maine diner in Wells Maine, great breakfast, the Ogunquit lobster pound in Ogunquit Maine, Chicks drive In in West Haven CT for their fantastic seafood, burgers, chili dogs, Peppino's in Maine for great mexican food, and a great little restaurant in London but I cant recall the name.

When we used to live in Orlando, would drive about 40 miles to the Dixie Crossroads in Titusville, about 12 miles from the Kennedy Space Center.

Have fantastic shrimp, and specialize in rock shrimp that taste like lobster.

It is a very family type atmosphere and the prices are quite reasonable.

Here's a link:

Now we live about 800 miles away, but we try to get there whenever we are in Florida.

Suggest you go for a very early or late lunch or early dinner, no reservations taken and the lines during peak feeding hours can be long.

Favorite Restaurants

Hey Fried Fish where are you from. There is one near me by the some name. I am near Gettysburg, PA. My favorite out of the way is a place called Famous Lunch. Excellant food at a good price. And oh my those hot dogs.

El Cid Mexican Food in Oakhurst, CA.. It's along Highway 41 about 20 minutes south of the gate to Yosemite National Park. I spent most of my life in San Diego, and I'm obsessed with mexican food (to the point where I'll eat good mexican food even when I know it agrivate my reflux). So I wasn't expecting much when I tried this place. It was a joy to find a source of good mexican food so (relatively) close when I was working/living in the park. I knew that this place would be good as soon as my knife started cutting my enchiladas - the beef was shredded, not ground - use of the latter is a cardinal sin in my book.

So if you're on your way into or out of Yosemite.....give it a try. It also has one or two other restaurants in the Central Valley of California, but I haven't tried them.
