When visiting the Emerald Coast, you'll find an overwhelming (in a good way!) amount of amazing food. Here at the Ben Kinney Team, we put together a few of the best places to get your grub on!
You can't go wrong here! The service is great, and the food is even better. The team loves the Big Bacon Burrito, the Baja Burrito, and the Ghost Rider Burrito, extra hot sauce! Take a seat on the sandy beach while you wait for your life-changing breakfast feast! They stop serving when they sell out so make sure to get there early, tell them who sent you and let us know what you try!
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. Do we even need to tell you anything else?! How about grits, crab benedict, country fried steak, and a massive biscuit! We love to add pecans to our cinnamon roll pancakes, and the service you'll receive here is the perfect southern hospitality you'd expect. Let them know we sent you, and tell us how much you loved the pancakes!
If you like sushi, you will be in absolute seafood heaven here! This is a team favorite during lunch time, it's filling and easy on the wallet! You have to try the "Psycho Mermaid" which features Shrimp Tempura. Even a "new-to-sushi" visitor (or local) will enjoy it! The "Sassy Mermaid" and the "Tropical Mermaid" are also team favorites, along with their famous Poké bowl. Let them know who sent you, and snap a pic for us of what you tried!
It is so hard to choose a favorite dish from this Mexican restaurant! They have daily specials which are always amazing, and the staff is fantastic. The Tortilla Soup is a must have, along with a side salad featuring the "Santa Fe" dressing. The street tacos and any kind of quesadilla will have you singing a song as you eat! As always, let them know we told you our secret spot, and let us know how you liked it!
This is the famous burger joint that you will write home about on your vacation! Don't stop at the burgers though, the "Bangin Shrimp Tacos" are absolutely a team favorite, as well as their salads, made with hyrdoponic lettuce... Yes they are very fancy, but the price is right! Happy Hour is from 3pm-5pm Monday-Friday, let them know we sent you and let us know how they did!
Sandwiches, pizzas, salads, smoked meats and more! You can't go wrong with a specialty pizza from their brick oven, keep it meaty with the "Paul Revere" and add a side salad! Smoked dinners are superb, the "Glorias soon-to-be-famous rib plate" is sure to feed your appetite. The craft beer is top quality and served cold, just like it should be. Let them know we sent you, and let us know if you try the "Blackbear Honey Wheat Ale"!
"Taste some South in your mouth!" Last but not least, smoked meats! You have got to try the pulled pork sandwich with their side of brown sugar BBQ sauce... you will taste Heaven! Fried okra, fries, steamed broccoli, they've got whatever your heart desires. We love that the BBQ plates are served with sides AND Texas Toast! Let them know we asked you to stop by, and have some of their signature St. Louis style ribs for us!
The food on the Emerald Coast is always great, but these are definitely some of our top places to snack. Let us know how you like them!
