Meals Worth Stopping for in Florida

Local Restaurants Within 10 Miles Of The Interstate

Book Description

Florida draws some 70 million tourists a year, many of whom zip contentedly along the interstates from one theme park and beach to another. But then it comes time to eat. Meals Worth Stopping For: Florida gives visitors and residents alike delicious, homegrown alternatives to generic chain fare. The Gourmettes, two friends with the strictest of standards, have surveyed a ten-mile swath on either side of I-95, I-75, I-4, and I-10, and found the best spots for seafood, bar-b-que, Cuban, soul food, steaks, pancakes, sandwiches, key lime pie, you name it.

Included are easy-to-follow directions and cross-referenced indexes. User-friendly and fun, with around 100 entries organized by interstate, this engagingly written book includes photos throughout conveying the character (and characters) of individual restaurants, as well as sidebars on everything from local recipes to Florida lore.
