While staying in Waikiki, we went to Lu Lu's several times. It's an open-air bar on the second floor of a building with great views of the beach and Diamond Head. Great beachy vibe and really friendly service.
Mahi sandwich was quite tasty. Omelets for breakfast were good - get the corned beef hash with them. If you really like garlic, get the garlic fries. They are very garlicky but sooo good. The nachos are also good but be sure to share them - the order is huge.
We didn't sit at the bar but it was large and looked well-stocked. I'm not usually a fan of live music but the band that played while we were there was good.
I hardly ever wait in line for food but my husband had been to this spot before and swore it was worth it. Well, the first time I was there the line moved slowly and I was really thinking we should just go elsewhere.
I was WRONG.
Their hot dogs are different. They have great flavor, like no other hot dog I've had. Keep it simple and just get the chili cheese dog. It's fun to read about some of the crazy concoctions, but you can't beat the classic.
I really enjoyed the attention to seasonal, fresh ingredients. I had a nettle pizza that was unlike anything I've ever eaten and I wish I could have it again.
The server was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and did a great job on answering questions.
You don't expect to find food of this quality in a small town but this is a don't-miss treat.
Feed & Fuel has a great selection of tack, especially saddles. I picked up a great pair of boots that was exactly what I'd been looking for and they cost a lot less that what I'd been looking at before.
Fun to just roam around this rustic shop.
My favorite place in Miami. Be prepared for an experience, however. Sometimes they run out of things and sometimes they decide that a dish isn't really good enough to be served because they have high standards.
You may be drinking one kind of beer only to find that they don't have any more of that kind. Just go with it and be flexible - it will be worth it.
The food is excellent - snapper with mango, chicken with watercress, squid salad, the tongue and more. Ask them what's good that day and order from the specials board.
Good tapas - not always authentic but still very good. We had really good service there and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Patatas bravas were addictive. A beet salad (in season) reminded me why I love beets. Filet was fine but not extraordinary.
I get cravings for Bad Brad's brisket and polish sausage. The meat is smoky, they serve sauce (hot and regular) on the side. The sides are good - especially the coleslaw.
The sandwiches are good but for a treat, try the gyros and other Mediterranean dishes. The pitas are good (not like you buy in the store). Try them with hummus, have some tabbouleh and don't miss the dolmas (stuffed grape leaves).
Great place to get tack, feed, clothes for yourself and your horse. The staff is helpful and prices are usually below those of other stores.
Great bagels and spreads, with really friendly service. I've been a fan of their bagels since they opened. I recently tried the Reuben sandwich and might have a new favorite.
I visit 2-3 times a week and it didn't take long for the staff to learn my name and greet me when I walked through the door. It's locally owned and employs lots of OSU students - a plus in my book.
