I think Porky's is a fairly common name for a BBQ restaurant. One of the restaurants in Marathon Florida is also called Porky's and I am sure it is no kind of chain.
Favorite Dish: I didn't write down what we had to eat. I have pictures of soup (or it could be Brunswick Stew), and a buffet, but I think we had some kind of BBQ.
For dinner, we went out to Dixie Crossroads. We had been warned to go early, and indeed last time we tried to come here by taxi, there were about 3 greyhound buses in the parking lot and there were lines of people out the door. We heard that it would be extra extremely busy on the weekend, so we got there before 6 and there were a lot of people standing around outside. But we found a parking place and got seated right away.
Favorite Dish: I had the lobster dinner for $14.95 which was a good sized lobster (photo 2). Bob had a small order of the fish of the day which was grouper for $10.99. He said it was a little rubbery and said he should have had the lobster. . We each had two sides with our dinners - I had shrimp soup (clear broth with a lot of potatoes and a few little shrimp) and a sweet potato. Bob had a salad (ordinary looking) and also had a sweet potato which was served with both regular butter and cinnamon butter. They served us corn fitters with powdered sugar as the bread (photo), and these were pretty good. The total including tip was a bit less than $38.00
We walked up to The Coffee Shop to have lunch, discovering after we got there that it closed at noon on Saturday and it was now 12:40
Favorite Dish: We drove to the Coffee Shoppe which we had intended to have lunch on Saturday. I had a egg salad sandwich ($2.35 - I was a little nervous about getting to the marina in time, so I didn't have the shepard's pie lunch with 2 sides which would have been $4.99) which came with chips and Bob had a hamburger ($2.39 also with chips). With iced tea, the total bill was $7.76, and we were finished in half an hour. During the week, they also serve dinner.
Great view of the water, lots of seating, casual. Tasty Mexican & Cuban dishes.
Favorite Dish: Good Guacamole. I had a Cuban sandwich which was right on the mark, with black beans. My husband had a Cuban steak with a side of black beans and the absolute BEST fried plantains I've ever had (they were crunchy where they should be and soft where they should be...so yummy!)
When we came in January 2005, the shopping center was being demolished (or had been demolished by the hurricane) and there was a note saying that it was moving to Cocoa Beach.
Before that, every time we came to Titusville we would walk across the highway and across the parking lot of the shopping center and go here for dinner. The food is plentiful, and good. It seems to be a family run place. In the daytime the nearby courthouse workers probably come to eat here.
We came here on Nov 30th and it was decorated for Xmas - there is a collage in the 2nd picture. There was a Xmas tree (top right) as well as exterior lights (top left). The front door is bottom right The main part of the picture is the interior and if you look you can see me reflected in the mirror as I took the picture. Bob had the taco platter (center bottom) and I had a taco salad (bottom right). We also each had a fried ice cream.
Favorite Dish: The first time we went, Bob had the taco platter and I had something with a variety of things in it. I couldn't eat it all, but I didn't take any home. We shared a frozen ice cream, which was vanilla with soft chocolate ice cream used like whipped cream on the top.

When we came in 2002, our dinner for the two of us was under $32.00
The second day we were in Titusville we figured that we'd spring for a cab and someone recommended this place. After we got here, we found that they would have delivered to the boat, which would have been way cheaper as the cab fare was $7.50 each way plus tip.
The place was much better than the chain pizza places, and was nicely decorated with murals on the wall. They had half portions on the menu which is good for us as Bob doesn't want what most places give you as a full portion.
Favorite Dish: Bob had spaghetti, and I had a pasta dish without sauce which I thought had a bit too much garlic. They have a notice on their menu which said that Italian cooking had to have garlic in it, and not to even bother to come in if you didn't want garlic. I also had garlic bread. The bill was $23.22 and we gave the waitress $4.00 tip
Your Place is the ideal diner for breakfast or lunch. Opens 6am till 2pm (1pm Sun) The best hash browns & home frys, and their biscuits are to die for! The staff are really friendly, and the food is excellent value, no fancy stuff, just good, honest, American cooking.
Favorite Dish: Any thing. When I stay in Titusville, this is the place I always eat at, and have not had a bad meal yet.
We have been eating here for several years and have never gotten a bad meal. They serve both Mexican and Cuban food.
Favorite Dish: Pollo de Plancha [grilled split chicken breast, with black bean soup, rice and fried plantains.
