Restaurant Suggestions in and around Biloxi

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 11:41:45 GMT

Hi! I'll be there for a few days to do a half marathon and need some suggestions. Ideally, I'm looking for one of those Italian restaurants that give a large platter of pasta. I've narrowed it down to Sicilian II and Stalla (in the Beau Rivage) but was wondering if there were others. My husband is looking for a great seafood restaurant with fresh seafood... and fried oysters. These could be separate meals, lol. I have Desportes and Sons for lunch and Half Shell Oyster House but not sure if I'm missing the mark. I heard there is a large Vietnamese population there, so Le Bakery is on my list, but if there are suggestions for really good pho, I'd be interested. I'm also looking for a buffet (by the time I get there, it might be around 1-1:30) so not sure if someone had a favorite at one of the casinos. The other place on my list is Fuji Sushi House. Thank you!

If you're in the Triangle, I think Firsthand Foods breakfast sausage is super good

Raleigh. Better paid jobs and housing prices not so crazy. Now I can actually afford to dine out when I visit Asheville! Rarely could when I was living there.

Where to buy Skin-on Pork Loin?

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 15:56:44 GMT

I also am looking for somewhere to purchase Pork Loin with the skin attached. I live in Vero Beach, Florida. My British Cousin lives in Northern California and her mother will be visiting her soon and wants to cook a traditional Roast Pork with Crackling for the family. So now there are seven of us searching for the illusive "Skin-On" Piece o' Pork :) Please, can anyone help us?

Angelo's in Gulfport, Miss.

Have you gotten any recipes for Angelo's? Please share

Ray "Red" Gills Razorback Barbecue Sauce?

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 19:21:05 GMT

Short answer: yes, it is. Was tough to track down, using a lot of internet searches and tidbits of smalltown gossip (my mother lived in her hometown for a while). Here is a link to her facebook page:

French dressing on pizza in Biloxi?

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 21:25:43 GMT

(Grew up on the coast). I remember asking my dad about this in the 80s ... mainly because this kid moved to town and was like... french dressing? Pizza? What? Anyway, my dad told me about a big food fight that broke out at Hugos in the 50s. He was there or friends were there after a hight school game or something. Hugos used to place the pizzas on stands in the middle of the table. Salad dressing was thrown everywhere and on pizzas. Mostly french dressing and Hugo owner said if they ate the pizza and help clean, he wouldn't call the police. They did so and everyone liked the french dressing and kept doing so as a reminder about the big food fight (aside from liking it). Who knows... my dad is known to tell some stories. :)

Huntsville, Alabama recommendations?

Tue, 30 May 2017 18:01:15 GMT

We are going to be in Huntsville for a few days and I was checking the boards for restaurant recommendations, but the latest ones are two years old. Can anyone help with some current recommendations? My husband and I will be there with our teenage daughters this summer, and we would love to find some great non-chain restaurants. Extra points for places with local specialities (barbecue reccs, and anything else Huntsville is known for?) Breakfast, lunch or dinner and any price point. We would just like to enjoy some delicious meals. Thank you for your help!

Little Rock, Arkansas

Fri, 26 May 2017 15:42:57 GMT

Where should I eat in Little Rock - any cuisine, any price?

Lafayette, LA area great eats

Mon, 08 May 2017 21:07:22 GMT

Hello, Jackie! I'd like to recommend both the Steamboat Warehouse Restaurant in Washington and The Little Big Cup in Arnaudville. The history/atmosphere alone of the Steamboat is worth the ride, but Chef Jason's seafood dishes take it to another level! For brunch, The Little Big Cup, is the best spot. The restaurant is situated on the banks of Bayou Fuselier and host a weekend Boucherie brunch buffet with traditional Boucherie dishes. Also, Arnaudville is only about a 30-minute drive from Lafayette. I hope this is helpful!

Dinner and Breakfast

Just passing through and have no idea where we are staying, we are driving down from Western Massachusetts.

Shelby County AL

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 16:48:24 GMT

I'm headed to Pelham/Indian Springs for a high school reunion and, suffice it to say, the area has changed a lot in the last 50 years. I'm looking for breakfast, barbecue, seafood, and pretty much anything else -- something Mexican/Central American would be nice. Adult beverages are a must at dinner. I know Birmingham and the close in suburbs well -- just looking for outside 459.

Anyone familiar w both Breaux Bridge AND Houma

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 04:08:07 GMT

Going on a big long road trip that will take me through Breaux Bridge LA for some cajun food. I have a very flexible schedule, and a moderately flexible belly. Places I have noted to try include (cut and pasted from my itinerary): Nash’s for turtle soup *Poor Boy'Riverside Inn – Duck and Andoullie gumbo Pat's Waterfront Restaurant – Crawfish ettoufe Soops Restaurant – seafood gumbo Poches Jubans (fancy) Baton Rouge PreJeans (Lafayette) Café des Amis After continuing on to TX I will loop back towards Atlanta (where I live). I kind of randomly looked into Houma as a possible stop and was surprised to see how big of a town it is, chock full of restaurant such as Melvins, Big Als, Spahrs (wild catfish), and Pit Stop for Beignets. I may grow weary from too much Cajun though and am wondering if a stop in Houma would just be redundant. Or, alternatively, if some of what I have on my visit to Breaux Bridge will seem like just more of the same after the first 2 or 3 restaurants. Truth be told, I probably WILL get tired of Cajun food after a few days and might not want to hit everything on that list so probably best to do the best ones first (assuming I will skip some others). So anyway, just wondering if anyone has experience in both places and feel that some of these are must visits while others are less essential. Thanks Dave

Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival?

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:26:41 GMT

Sounds very cool, collardman. I'll look into it. Well, now all three of the usual suspects on this board have chimed in :) And nobody has said "the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival is to die for." I guess I will have to either go and post a trip report with my own impressions, or just boil a few imported bugs here while I revel in the memories of the Acadiana trip.

Lafayette, LA recs for dinner tonight PLEASE

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 13:10:57 GMT

Doing a 3 night business ride through, last night Lake Charles, tonight Lafayette, and tomorrow night Baton Rouge. A co-worker and i would like to find some good eats in the Lafayette area tonight if we can get some good fellow hound recs. I'm down here from NC, and i like any types of cuisine, but the when in Rome thought certainly applies, so any good Cajun/Creole influenced/inspired cuisine options would certainly move to the top of the list, and we'd like a restaurant with a full service bar included if possible as well. I know it's last minute, it appears most of the previous threads date back a while, so if anyone can assist, it would be most appreciated.

US 90 from NOLA to Lafayette

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 19:20:39 GMT

I guess when I say gas station in Acadiana I'm thinking of the gas station/general store that will have pork boudin and crawfish boudin in foil instead of the usual hot dog and kielbasa. So, no it's not every place that would have it. And there are probably only a few manufacturers that distribute to these places so there may not be that many variations to choose from. I meant to mention earlier on your comment on I-49. Those signs have been up for probably 15 or more years. Someday there may be funds for it.

For excellent breakfast in Macon, GA try H and H

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 22:51:18 GMT

Best grits I have ever eaten! Biscuits are wonderful. My wife had the special and I had the ham with red sauce plate worth the stop!

Family party in Mobile

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 23:39:31 GMT

I'm looking for a place for 10 or so people to celebrate a 90th birthday in Mobile. We'll have a couple of vegetarians in our midst, as well as a young child. Some of us who are coming from far away would love to have seafood. The restaurant should feel special but not over-the-top formal. Lunch would be ideal, but a great place that's only open for supper is worth considering. Suggestions?

Ordering Live Crawfish in Los Angeles

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 16:51:27 GMT

I've never bought crawfish, but I believe I have seen them at Seafood City supermarket Check their website or give them a call. Deanie's in New Orleans delivers Also give Santa Monica Seafood a call Now for the andouille, that I buy all the time, Huntington Meats (at the Farmers Market) makes an excellent one.
