Hi from Jacksonville FL

Hey everyone. Starting from scratch in the kitchen again. Want to do it on the cheap and see what I can do. This forum has been a great resource and I wanted to maybe contribute.

Hey Ron! Just the person I need to talk to!

Is Jacksonville "known" for any particular food?
I am really drawing a blank on this one.

And welcome!

I have been here 11 years and I have to say I don't know really. They have some great seafood like many FL coastal towns. Jacksonville is sadly over run by restaurant chains so it's fairly generic now days.

Thanks for the welcome,

Ron

That's what I've been running into.
Thanks for confirming that.

My nephew lives in Jacksonville, and calls me once in awhile to ask me a food question. Sometimes it's a "duh", but mostly I know the answer. But most importantly, we get to chat a bit.
