    Bubba Gumps Shrimp Shack: Do You Love Forrest Gump?

    by sweetgurl6973 Written May 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Delicious and fun....if you liked the movie Forrest Gump, you should visit this theme restaurant on your next visit to Daytona Beach. I believe there are a few others out there in different cities as well.

    Favorite Dish: The crab cakes are amazing...and they come in a great little silver pail instead of on a platter. Really adds to the experience of the restaurant.

    Park's Seafood: Moved

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Parks has apparently moved to Holly Hill. When we went by January 15, 2005, this sign was across the door. But now their website says that they have moved.

    When we were at Caribbean Jacks, their restaurant wasn't finished yet. So we set out to walk to a nearby restaurant. After figureing out how to negotiate on foot under the bridge access, we ended up at Parks. We went back the next two nights with our friends.

    We found out later that Parks is normally closed between Thanksgiving and Christmas and decided to change for this week. But most people thought it would be closed and didn't come. So that meant we could get right in. Otherwise there are long lines because it is so popular.

    Favorite Dish: This is a family owned and operated restaurant which offers a large variety of fresh fish, shrimp, scallops, lobster, crab, gator tail and much more. (There's a landlubber menu too). It was located on the Halifax River just past the new fixed Seabreeze bridge. It is normally a very busy bustling and sometimes noisy place.

    We got the early bird special and the two of us ate including tea, dessert and tips for between $24 and $32.

    The restaurant is open 6 days a week,
    Tuesday through Sunday at 4:00 PM.
    Early Bird Specials from 4:00 to 5:00 PM/
    Prices Range from $7.95 to $10.95

  • KFC/Taco Bell: Colonel Sanders Thinks Outside the Bucket

    by Grundlestiltzkin Updated Jan 17, 2007

    Although some die hard Kentucky Fried Chicken fans may think Colonel Sanders was rolling over in his grave, I think he was doing the worm when the aptly named Yum! Brands, Inc. began to co-brand KFC and Taco Bell storefronts. Colonel Sanders is clearly the parent of this lovechild, and it is clear that the Colonel’s Mexican maid was doing more than just cleaning the pressure cooker. These two got together, and got it right. The Colonel took his eleven herbs and spices south of the border while the missus was out, and I hope he never comes back. I mean, where else can you conjure the perfect meal under one roof? Nowhere. Tacos and Fried Chicken go together like all of the other great health foods of the world, like Ice Cream and Cake, Coffee and Donuts, and Spam and Eggs. But, what else would you expect from the company that brought you Long John Silver’s? That’s right, the Colonel’s been hangin’ out with the Pirate, and a perfect storm of fast food goodness is about to converge over the culinary world. So let’s cross our fingers and hope that soon Capt. Silver’s world renowned Fish Planks and hush puppies will appear alongside our other favorites, like Popcorn Chicken, the Double Decker Taco, and Famous Bowls. The food Gods will certainly be smiling on us then.

    Favorite Dish: For an appetizer, I recommend a six-pack of Soft Taco Supremes with a six-pack of Biscuits. For an entrée, I recommend a bucket of Extra Crispy and a Seven-Layer Burrito. Then, you wash it all down with a 52 oz. Mountain Dew. But, save room for dessert, becuase we mustn’t forget about the Chaco Taco. “What is a Chaco Taco?” you ask. According to the not-so-Mexican producer of this delectable delight, Klondike, it is “artificially flavored fudge rippled reduced fat vanilla ice cream, a taco shell cone, milk chocolate flavored coating and crunchy peanuts,” which in technical terms makes it a Nutty Buddy shaped like a Taco. BRILLIANT!!! The chocolate “flavored” coating drapes perfectly over the taco-shaped waffle cone, and only hints at the divine swirl of flavor inside. With each bite, the faux fudge ripple rips through your soul as the reduced fat vanilla ice cream plays your heart strings like Liberace. Like the KFC/Taco Bell combo, the ice-cream/taco combo hits the mark dead on. I have seen the future, and it is Mexican infused!!!

  • McDonald's: Fillet-O-Fish is Daytona's Best Dish

    by Grundlestiltzkin Updated Jan 17, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although the famed arches are not truly made of gold, you will feel like you struck gold when you set foot inside this beacon of hope for seafood lovers. The windows are large, letting in plenty of light, which allows you to take in all of the visual splendor that this establishment offers. From the brown/orange tiles that hide dirt like a teenage boy hides his pornos from his mother to the sophisticated block lettering on the menu board behind the particle board counter, this establishment spoils your eyes and your soul. The menu comes alive with spectacular backlighting, and the vast selection of different delights suggests that the culinary genius behind them barely has time to cook between his worldly excursions to discover new foods to which to add the “Mc” moniker. This international seal of tasty goodness has been applied to some of the best foods in the world, from the McSalad-Shaker to the McGriddle. In short, this place blows the McDoors off of Long John Silvers, and wipes the McFloor with Captain D’s. If you are looking for great seafood and a whole lot more, this is the place.

    Favorite Dish: At only 20.5 grams of fat, you'll be glad you can eat almost four of these delectable gems before going into anaphylactic shock. That’s right, I’m talking about the Filet-O-Fish. Only the freshest of frozen “white fish” makes it into these perfect patties, crusted with the perfect amount of batter and fried to a perfect golden-brown. It’s no wonder I’ve never heard of white fish, because if McDonald’s let the whereabouts of these heavenly creatures get discovered, Filet-heads everywhere would certainly fish them out of existence. I often dream of sitting on the back of my boat with some kind of deep-frying gun and zapping the fish in mid-air as the jump straight from the ocean into my eager mouth, one after one until my stretch marks have stretch marks. Even the local fisherman forgo their day’s catch to partake of this, one of God’s greatest works. So, while your in the “Sport Fishing Capital of the World” – Florida – leave the fishing for just that . . . sport. The good eating fish is right down the street at the Golden Arches.

  • Burger King: Home of the Whopper, Theif of My Heart

    by Grundlestiltzkin Written Jan 17, 2007

    As the flames lick the burgers dancing through the broiler, the smells from the chicken-stick fryer tickle the hairs in your nose with pure olfactory splendor. You must be careful not to loose yourself in the ambience as the monochromatic tiles and paint scheme lull you into a pleasure coma, from which you awaken time to time to wonder how the Home of the Whopper feels so much like your own home. The service was impeccable, and reminded me of the service I have grown accustomed to receiving only at some of the nicest restaurants in the world, like Red Lobster. In a word, perfection.

    Favorite Dish: The most delectable delight to be partaken at this heaven-on-earth establishment is the Chicken Fries. These are one of the items of edible ecstasy that warrant capitalization whenever mentioned, like our heavenly father in the good book. Thin strips of all-white meat chicken breast coated with a batter seasoned with spices that could only have been combined by the Gods on Mount Olympus in some deal to steel man’s immortal soul. You won’t want the flavor fantasy to end as you plunge Chicken Fry after Chicken Fry into BK’s own Buffalo Sauce, and you begin to understand why our pioneering forefathers killed all of the Buffalos. BK was truly pioneering when the brilliant minds at their test kitchen developed this work of genius, and you can’t help but hope that the Chicken Fry does to the chicken nugget what the white man did to the American Indian. God bless America, and God bless Chicken Fries!

    Starlite Diner: Step into the Past

    by dgines Written Nov 17, 2006

    You'll see the Starlight Diner opposite the Beach Walk Shops on a drive down Atlantic Avenue. It's a blast from the past--a greasy spoon, short order diner perfect for late night meals or late morning brunch.

    Boondocks: Don't miss the fresh seafood at this local hangout

    by dgines Updated Nov 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't let the redneck name nor look of the place fool you. This is one of the best locations in Daytona Beach to get a great seafood for lunch or dinner (complete with raw bar). The casual atmosphere and river front location add to the Florida ambiance.

    Favorite Dish: Raw Oysters

    Bubba Gump Shrimp Company: It's a household name....

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yes, it's a chain, but it's still one of the best places to get cajun peel and eat shrimp around. I just happened to visit on Halloween and was entertained by a server dressed like a hairy monster.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely order the Salmon...

    Crabby Joe's @ Sunglow Pier: Good Food,Cold Beer,And Fish From The Pier!

    by 18LisaMi Updated Jul 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eat over the Atlantic Ocean with waves breaking under the pier. Pitchers of beer/Bloody Marys. The shark ribs are served with a Buffalo type dipping sauce. Also other seafood and a pretty good Cuban sandwich. Breakfast 7am-11am is good also. You may want to fish from the pier after eating or go to the oval shaped bar for Happy Hour.

    Favorite Dish: Shark Ribs w/ Broccoli Slaw. The spicy Buffalo dipping sauce works well and the unusual slaw made from broccoli/tomato is perfect.

    All types: Quick places to eat

    by JOJOZ112 Written Jul 17, 2006

    There are lots of restaurants to pick from in Daytona. I dont eat out very often and when I do it's usually for lunch. I like to go to Honeybaked Ham, which has great sandwiches and soups to choose from. They make delicious sweet ham on the property and use it in their sandwiches too!
    I also like Sorrento's pizzeria. It's in a small shopping center right behind the main McDonalds in the area. Coming from Ny, I have tried some disgusting pizza in Florida, but so far Sorrento's is halfway decent. If you enjoy pizza and come from tne North, this place isn't too bad.
    If you feel like driving and enjoy eating crab, try Joe's Crab Shack. It's a really fun place to eat, great looking restaurants, friendly servers and lots of souvenirs. And of course, the crab is delicious!

    Concessions: Eat before you go!

    by tony248 Updated May 7, 2006

    A Pepsi, bottle of water, and a small bag of potato chips, $7 US. Eat before you go and bring your own snacks! Unless you are not worried about the cost or don't what to carry the extra weight around. There are restrictions on the size and type of coolers and bags you can bring into the track. Check with the track on current security restrictions.

    For 2004, you could have one 6" by 6" by 12" soft sided cooler and one clear plastic bag per person. Most of the clear bags I saw were the ones used for souvenirs purchased at the track and were about the size of plactic grocery bags.

    Molly's Cafe: Breakfast Only

    by sarahjayn Written Jun 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molly's is a tiny hole-in-the-wall that serves only breakfast. If you want to experience Southern-style breakfast this is the place: fried, large, and cheap. It tastes pretty good, too. The waitresses are super-southern, too - I think they may have been robots they were so nice!

    Favorite Dish: I like the hash browns here . . . and the coffee. Your spoon can practically stand straight up in it!

    Adam's Mark Hotel Restaurant: STILL AVAILABLE? I DON'T KNOW -- SORRY.

    by tatyanap Updated Apr 8, 2005

    THIS HOTEL HAS BEEN PURCHASED BY HILTON -- I DON'T KNOW IF HILTON OFFERS SAME BREAKFAST DEAL.

    If you don't stay at Adam's Mark Hotel, visit this hotel for buffet breakfast. It is served in a very elegant setting. Also, buffet choices are great: omelets and waffles made to order, a great selection of other typical Southern breakfast dishes -- sausage, grits, biscuits, eggs. Also, plenty of Continental breakfast items -- cereal, donuts, bagels, etc.

    Favorite Dish: Fresh (prepared on order) crispy waffles with whipped topping and strawberries. Yummy!

    The Brickyard (formerly the Flame Lounge): NASCAR fan's dream

    by grandmaR Updated Jan 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our friends took us to this place, because being Saturday night, all the regular restaurants had long waiting lines.

    This place has a hometown atmosphere and is popular among the locals - "definitely Daytona and we like it that way." It is named after the famous NASCAR race up in Indianapolis, and is a small, quaint restaurant / tavern that's laid back, offers a great value and is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. weekdays and 'til midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

    There's always a special and it won't break you. Open for lunch and dinner 11am - 11pm. Full service bar.

    Favorite Dish: It is famous for their 1/2lb Angus Beef sirloin hamburgers and pulled North Carolina BBQ in a light vinegar sauce.

    I had a steak and it was good - the service was personal - a lot of regulars at the bar. Our friends knew of it because the bikers go there. It is run by Penny and Remmy and I think Penny waited on us.

    Dinner for four including beer and drinks, and tip was $84.58

    We went back again in 2005 - Bob had the BBQ, and I had steak (ribeye) again. Our bill was $25.00 The special today was chicken dumpling soup and New York Strip.
