As I have previously posted, I love Tripadvisor and the entire concept of vacationers – guests having all questions answered to have a “plan” prior to arrival to get the most out of every travel opportunity !! However, with the Tripadvisor Forum, the reviews soon get buried by other questions and posted information. Because I think that these independent reviews are so important — I decided to post them here so they can live in and also can be easily found… and besides I appreciate the help!! This was originally posted May 12, 2008 by Ms. Bernadette Glee of the UK who has done a fabulous job with recommendations here::
Thank you Bernadette for your permission to re-post !!
Here is our review of the wings, ribs etc as promised. Didn’t get to try all of places recommended on my initial post.
But how many meals can you eat on vacation? So thanks for all your reply’s, next time we’ll try some more places.
Sonny’s BBQ pit, this was our first night in DB. We ordered 20 wings, not crispy enough – 2 types of ribs, little ones were yummy, larger ribs not as delicious, and fries – loads of food!
Hog heaven , Fabulous – half rack special, their ribs fell off the bone – I used a fork to eat these, no fingers or knife.
Hooters – probably the best wings we had, ‘naked’ with no breadcrumbs, lovely and crispy, curly fries were lovely and we even ordered another 5 wings. yum yum.
Ormand Steak house, definitely the best ribs – we split a whole rack between us, soooo delicious.
Charlie’s Horse – So many wings and they were huge!! Hubby tried a steak, his mistake, my ribs were gorgeous. Great staff, great atmosphere.
Ruby Tuesdays, last night in DB, I had steak this time, disappointed – not that nice, not sure of the cuts though. So I ordered sirloin.
Racings north turn, we had lunch in this beautiful setting – patio on the beach, not too hungry so we had a hot dog, with kraut, it was very nice too, I never eat hot dogs, so it was a treat.
Pats waterfront cafe for lunch – the biggest patty melt in the world, I only managed a couple of bites, very delicious though, on black bread, my first introduction to black bread, Rye!! Jury’s still out on that one!
The Outback, we ordered ribs, which we had to wait ages for, I didn’t get my baked potato ‘loaded’ just butter and sour cream, or the ketchup he was going to bring, never turned up.
The Olive garden – probably the worst meal of our time here. The pasta wasn’t great, Also the waiter should have given us $20.49 change, but we never saw the 49 cents, shame he would have got a bigger tip if he’d left it to us!!!
(I am actually joking, lol – he got the usual gratuity) but wouldn’t go back there, or recommend it.
Breakfast (definitely the best meal of the day IMO)
Before I start, I must say we are ‘breakfast people’ at home in the UK, and because we are fortunate enough to live by the lovely Sussex coast, there are loads of places to breakfast.
But… the eggs in the US are really fabulous, they are wonderfully ‘eggy’ and creamy. Reminds me of how eggs tasted when I was a little girl.
What is it about the way you guys do eggs, they are without doubt the best ‘easy over’ eggs in the world. The sausage is tasty, bacon leaves a lot to be desired (sorry), and the potatoes are not for us for breakfast. Far too early in the day. Well, in the beginning of our vacation anyway, but we did succumb in the end. And gritsL we did try them – a one off I’m afraid, never again.
The following only differ by a very narrow margin…
Our hotel had the best breakfast (Tropical Wind resort) it’s only got about a dozen tables but it was delicious – eggs are fantastic!
Peach valley cafe,
Another great breakfast and this time we did have ‘home fries’ We actually went here a second time, it was so good, this is our 2nd favourite.
Denny’s, Very nice, straight forward breakfast. Good service, great coffee.
Starlite diner, fantastic breakfast, great little diner, got very busy as we were leaving at 8:45am.
IHop, disgusting breakfast – it was dirty and there were hair like things on my toast, yuk yuk!
Bob Evans – another fantastic breakfast, very clean, great service.
I’m now a vegetarian;-) lol
That’s all folks!
Thanks Bernadette !! I could not have said it better myself !!
