Help with great American Food please

Hi

We are visiting Florida for three weeks from the UK.

We are staying for a couple of nights in Miami and 3 nights in Orlando but spending the majority of time in Cape Coral.

We are fans of the American TV Programme Man Verses Food and unfortunately there are no restaurants that have been featured on the programme where we are going. However can anyone please recommend any typical American, BBQ joints for Ribs or Burger places, Pulled pork or anywhere you think we shouldn’t miss? The meats we get here in the UK just don’t compare to any we can get over there and would hate to miss somewhere.

Thank all in advance

on your umpteen other threads you said fresh and local.

Pinchers crab shack sell local seafood and Doc Fords it a good choice too.

Rib City mentioned earlier is on San Carlos Blvd, about 3-4 miles north of FMB. On San Carlos and after crossing under Summerlin Rd on the way to Rib City, you'll find Pink Cadillac about 1/2 mile later on the right. The burger here is great and will likely have juice running down your arm.

For a great steakhouse, head over to Rt 41, make a right and head toward Naples to Shula's Steakhouse - http://www.donshula.com/ It's about 35-40 minutes from FMB

Sonny's BBQ is great for pulled pork, chicken, sliced beef, ribs, fries, coleslaw, garlic bread/corn bread. Try Five Guys for a really great burger and hand-cut fries. These are both chains but they are really good!

We loved Tony Romas, it's a chain, the onion loaf and ribs were great. Enjoy!

I agree with Tony Romas...good American food too. I had thought they had closed them all down but so glad that some places are still open. I really liked Pizza Uno, but they closed down in Fort Myers.

Tony Romas is average at best. Rib city is much better. Doc Fords is below average.

Nervous Nellies on the beach has tons of choices - BBQ, Burgers, etc. There is like 200 items on their menu and the portions are large.

Try Five Guys for a decent burger at a good price nearby. It's almost fast food, but tastes good and not crazy expensive.
