Jalapenos

Reviewed By kslindst - Port Charlotte, Florida

We got the platter (two meat choices , beans, rice and tortillas). Wow was it tasty. We got pulled pork and steak. They were cooked to perfection. The quality was excellent and portions were very good size. Prices were very reasonable. The people were friendly. It felt and tasted like an authentic Mexican meal. If we’re in the area again, we will make it a point to stop in for another good meal.

Common Grounds Coffee Shop

Reviewed By Cookie K - Lake Placid, Florida, United States

Stopped on our way through Clewiston, not too many options, looked like a quaint little place, which it is. Very nice and attentive waitress, ordered 2 eggs o/m, sausage patty and toast $4.00. The only suggestion I would have is, they have no breakfast potatoes, that is what makes a southern breakfast great! I would add potatoes and raise the price to $5.00. The food was cooked exactly as ordered, and according to my husband the coffee was outstanding.

Open air, but covered place, it is like a grant tiki hut. Right at the canal so you can see some boats. Lots and lots of parking. A decent place with a menu you would expect of a bar. Decent, give it a try

The menu offers standard American meals as well as local and (American) Indian cuisine. Local bison burger was tasty -- portions are large and the service is efficient. Indian Taco and complimentary fried bread were delicious and filling. Adventurous travellers can order the local delicacy -- alligator nuggets! This is a solid choice for dining on the Big Cypress Reservation, enjoyed by locals and tourists alike!

Reviewed By sun&sea lover - Newton(Boston), MA

This small cafe which serves breakfast and lunch at the Roland Martin Marina Resort has a very good breakfast. Everything appears to be fresh (like veggies for omelets, the bacon and home fries very tasty, and you can get a homemade biscuit instead of toast, which was delicious. Would recommend for breakfast. Lunch had mostly fried foods so we didn't try it.

Sonny's BBQ

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.

Beef 'O' Brady's

Reviewed By CarolinaBecky - Raleigh, North Carolina

This was a late stop for lunch, and it is difficult to find places in this less-populated area of Florida. We were hoping for a salad or food that was not spicy or sodium-loaded but had trouble at this spot. We ended up sharing grilled shrimp, served on skewers with rice and steamed broccoli. The shrimp were small and were very salty from something they had brushed over them or they had been brined; the rice was seasoned and salty as well. The broccoli was nicely steamed and unembellished. Service was very slow.

Sunrise Restaurant

Reviewed By RandynAshley A

To be a Mexican restaurant, Sunrise has the best cheeseburgers in Clewiston. Their chips and salsa are perfect, just the right amount of kick. Service is usually good but can get hectic at dinner time. Don't forget to order a Strawberry Margarita with your dinner, they are the bomb!!
