I have had a alligator in quite a few different locations, and have to say that the alligator tacos here are the best I have ever eaten. The meat is cooked and seasoned to perfection and the sauce that is on drizzled on to is unbelievable. It does sometimes take a while to get food, but is totally worth the... More

Pictures are worth a thousand words and maybe more in this case. This was just what we needed after a morning at the Everglades.

It doesn't get better than this. After spending the morning at Everglades NP with the gators, it's only fitting to have them for lunch. Conveniently located just a few miles north of the NP entrance, this roadside gem is the real deal. You order your meal inside the shack, then they bring it to you at your table. I had... More

We were in the Everglades National Park, about 15 miles from the entrance, when lunchtime rolled around. Since it would have been at least a 20-mile drive to Flamingo--for food of unknown quality--we figured we might as well reverse course and head toward Homestead. Gator Grill was the first place we came to. I'd noticed it on the way to... More

I never would have guessed that alligators would taste like beef! We tried the gator basket and the frog legs, both were quite good. It is quite busy, and the locals also show up in the ATVs so you know it's the place to be.

We stopped for lunch after our trip to the Everglades gator farm. Wow... What a stunning little gem of a place. The owner was super friendly and the food was awesome. We were a party of 8 and we didn't have to wait long for our order. The burgers are huge and hubby struggled to finish it. I had a... More

Somehow, a fancy menu was uploaded for this roadside grill. Don't pay any attention to that; I've attached a photo of the actual menu. We had the gator basket and the gator tacos. The basic difference is having the gator nuggets on a taco, or having them with fries. The meat was delicious, similar in texture to beef, nicely spiced,... More

The food was good! Nice, tender and reasonably priced gator bites (along with other stuff, if you are not too adventurous). I was expecting deep-fried meat and was pleasantly surprised to find tasty, grill-sauteed meat. I would have given this place a 4 star review had it not been for the owner's snappy attitude. My wife asked the price of... More
