Florida Road Trip - Chow Recs needed please

kansel | Aug 17, 2009 01:10 PM

Hi everyone, in February my husband friend and i will be taking a road trip around Florida. Our itinerary is as follows:

2 nights Orlando
3 nights Fort Lauderdale (one evening meal in Miami area)
3 nights Key West
1 night Naples
1 night Clearwater

I am hoping for food recs along the way. We like to go casual - travelling from the UK we don't bring fancy clothes or suits. We don't have the need to "be seen" or be with the "IT" crowd! We love to try mom and pop places with good home cooked food and no pretension.

As an idea, some places we have previously enjoyed in Florida are Cheesecake Factory (all over), Smokey Bones, Original Pancake House (Ft Lauderdale).

We enjoy the following cuisines:

Breakfast fayre (pancakes, french toast, eggs etc)

We also love good cocktails and nice cold beer :)

All recs are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
