It is a bit fishy, but more texturally rather than taste, I think. Which surprised me, because you might expect tough muscle meat. Alligator cheeks, anyone? Fried crunch on the outside, soft gator tail meat on the inside, it's nommy.

A local pizza shop serves "Everglades pizza," featuring wild boar sausage, frog legs, python chunks, and alligator tail pieces. Things were pretty chewy, but not bad. Those are little froggie legs complete with toe bones sticking out the sides.

Well, only once. Visiting out-of-town relatives had heard about it on the Net, so we had to try it. OK, but not worth the price.

You mean they didn't give it away? I know I would have had them hold the python chunks fer sure.

I live in Florida on a large lake,I could have
gator tail anytime I wanted it. But I don't like it.
I think it is highly over rated. It is tough and
flavorless the flavor is in the spices that restaurants
use. I have cooked it several times but I don't eat it.
I am with Craig on this one, It taste like gator.

My Dad had alligator one time and he said it was tough and tasted gamey. Was that a bad cook or just Dad?

If it was tough, I'd say bad piece of gator or way over cooked. Yes, like other wild game it can have that taste. Even farm raise. Most folks first taste of gator is usually fried, but try it in a Cajun sauce piquant before claiming dislike.

BTW, welcome to DC!
