We just returned from a 2 week drive through the Gulf Coast. We really enjoyed several of the places recommended in Roadfood. Jerry’s Drive-In in Pensacola had nice hamburgers and their fried oysters were wonderful! My husband has always refused to eat them fried-but these changed his mind(I must say that Gulf C. oysters are better than most). McGuire’s Irish Pub in Pensacola was very good also-great food and wine cellar atmosphere and rooms with different themes.
In Biloxi the only restaurant that was open was Mary Mahoney’s and the 3 at the casinos that had reopened. Not much has been done there-worst disaster area my husband and I had ever witnessed-this includes his 36 years in the military-from Nam till now and my living at the coast through many hurricanes.[:0]
On our return trip home we had a super lunch buffet at the Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle Ga. The staff there is so friendly.
