It's taken me several weeks to post this but my Hubby and I took an AMAZING roadtrip based on the show "Diner's Drive-in's and Dives" from the food network. We stopped at some places along the way and here is a short recap of our favorite places :) Our first stop was Darewell's cafe in Long Beach, MS We had their famous prime rib with au jus and their sample platters of Shrimp Creole, Crawfish Etoufee, and shrimp gumbo! The Shed in Ocean Springs, MS was hilarious! It really looked like a junk yard that they put a restaurant in the middle of. The BBQ was really good and for some reason they had items from other restaurants all around the junk yard lol. Manci's in Daphne, AL. I had the Shrimp Po' Boy sandwich and it was AMAZING!!! John has a chicken Po' Boy California Tacos to go in Tampa Florida. Chicken Tacos Enchiladas and Horchata!! Alpine Steakhouse in Sarasota, FL which is famous for its TurDuckIn! I think they may have invented it! So I sampled a sandwich and John got their german dish. It was delish!! Jose's Real Cuban food in Bradenton, FL!! I think we might be dreaming about this food for the rest of our lives! I had their garlic shrimp special with sauteed spinach with plantains and fried rice. John had a "Taste of Cuba" sampler with this AMAZING dish called Roja Vieja which is what they make on the show! If you only go to one restaurant you whole life, go here!
