After two bad previous experiences, we decided to try again because my wife really likes the coffee...we pulled up at 6:30am and found no exterior lights on and the sign was not illuminated...we just looked at each other and laughed...we got inside there were a few customers with one complaining that he had been there for 15 minutes waiting...but at least this time the baker had shown up and they had donuts unlike the last time we tried it...got coffee and a couple of donuts and left...we won't be back!

Coyote Rojo

Off I-75 North, Exit 314. Great authentic Mexican food!

Reviewed By uneekware - Tampa, Florida

Mexican restaurant menus, like Chinese restaurant menus tend to be similarly designed to American tastes. As far as food, this one is very similar to most Mexican restaurants. The restaurant is clean and the location is just off the Interstate. Where this one excels is in its customer service. The staff is exceptionally friendly and exceptionally attentive. Your drinks are always full, the chips and salsa are always replaced and the food comes quickly. They are always smiling and always polite. So much so that it takes you aback (in a very good way). If you are in the area and have a hankering, try this one out.

After reading some positive reviews, we decided to check this restaurant out for lunch last week. I had to wade through the numerous signs on the front door to see if they were open, since it was 12:30 in the afternoon and there was not another car in the parking lot. I assumed that they must be closed. Eventually, another couple showed up and expressed irritation about how they had tried to stop there before, but the place was closed that day. I think that they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. It is an odd feeling to be in a restaurant at what should be their busiest time, and the place is absolutely empty, making you wonder what does everyone else already know about the place.

The place seems like it is just barely alive. There was only one waitress, and I think she said that it was her first week there. I asked her several questions, such as about the owner mentioned in their long apology letter posted everywhere, and she did not know the answers. I then heard the cook ask her how to make my brisket sandwich, so I’m assuming that he was new too.

I’m not sure if it is good or bad that you can see their supplies stacked on shelves. I saw that they had gallons of Sweet Baby Rays sauce, which is good since I use it at home, but maybe bad because I would think a BBQ restaurant would be a little creative and try to make their own sauce. The place has very low ceilings, and my co-worker had to duck his head (quite a bit) to get through the doorway to use their restroom.

Part of their apology letter said that they are often out of “burnt ends” and brisket, and that the owner is gone a lot- working out of town. Sure enough, the waitress said that they ran out of “burnt ends” the previous day. So, I got their brisket sandwich. I’m not a big fan of greasy, butter toast for my sandwich instead of a bun, but it was ok. The baked beans were sort of like Winn Dixie beans (maybe they were?), being sweet and thick (which I like) but not having as much bacon as Sonny’s.

The only other couple in the restaurant ordered hamburgers, and it seemed to take a long time (and several follow-up questions) for them to get their food. I saw that they had several decent varieties of beer in the cooler, so I would probably give them another try if I was in the area. They had a board listing several deserts, but we did not try any of them.

Waller's Restaurant

Reviewed By GireRVadventure - Bushnell, Florida

We went here for breakfast one day after stopping by the court house. There were three of us, we all ate a decent sized breakfast for under $15 tip included. My waffles were soggy though, that's why I gave them a lower rating. Everything else was just fine. The service was good, the food was good. When the place got busy it was really loud and difficult to hear.

A local friend tipped me off to this place that is located north of town at the end of a large former shopping center that is now used mostly as county government offices. Not elaborately decorated and don't expect Eggs Benedict, but breakfast items were very good on two recent visits. Very good biscuits and gravy which were enjoyed along with scrambled eggs and delicious sausage patties. Prices are reasonable for what you get.

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.

We were one of many fleeing hurricane Irma up a very slow and congested I-75 this week. Nothing was open but we found Sonny's. The people were friendly and the food was plentiful. We did not walk away hungry. Thanks for staying open late to feed all of us on the run!!!! It was the best meal I had in a long time.

The burgers were fresh, the fries were hot and the tea was tasty. The restaurant was clean and the service was fast. What more can you ask for? One tip. The construction has moved to Wendy's side of the highway and so it's best to enter from the Walmart parking lot. A little congested with the drive thru traffic, but worth it.
