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

Can anyone give my an idea of the price at Texas de Brazil? I assume it is a fixed price menu but the website doesn't actually say. My son wants to go and asked me about pricing but I have no idea!

Regards,

Manny's chop house, its a little bit further out, situated in Haines city but gets very good reviews, hoping to try it next week. I'll do a review on it if we manage to try it out.

For AMAZING subs/hoagies try Laspada's. Lots of meat! They are located throughout South Florida, north of Miami, so you should be able to grab some on your trip from Miami to Orlando. They are a local company that have the most amazingly huge sandwiches that typically serve the non-tourists of Florida. :-) They don't give awards for finishing their subs, but I think I deserve one whenever I finish mine!

Also in the Fort Lauderdale area I would recommend Jackson's Ice Cream Parlour. It has been there for years and you could get The Sink! Definitely All-American food. http://www.jaxsonsicecream.com/index.php

My final recommendation would be CheeBurger CheeBurger. This is a chain of burger restaurants all across America that does have an eating challenge. You could be added to their Wall of Famers. This option isn't in South Florida but again you might be able to get to on your way to Orlando or while in Orlando. http://cheeburger.com/home2/index.asp

I'm not able to personally recommend options near Cape Coral, sorry.
