A Top Ten Eatery in St. Augustine – Cafe Eleven

Susan says…

Daniel recommended a restaurant for our trip to St. Augustine – Cafe Eleven.   He noticed it while staying at the nearby Hampton Inn.  With an interesting menu and an array of beer choices, he thought we’d enjoy the place.

Located on A1A near the coastline, Cafe Eleven is housed in an unassuming rectangular building with ample parking.  The interior is one large, open space.  You proceed to the counter upon entering for a menu.  Specials are posted at the register.  After ordering there, take a seat and someone will bring your food out to you when it’s ready.

I am going to get to it straight away: these are, by far, the best tacos I have ever wrapped my lips around.  E-vah.

Never did I imagine in my wildest dreams that the best taco ever could be had in little, touristy Folly Beach.  But indeed, that’s where the best tacos reside.  At Taco Boy.  Our first meal in Folly Beach was so good, I am certain it cannot be topped.  Before departing the restaurant, I was already making plans to return before the end of our week.  The kids said they were going to scream if I said “My food was SO good” one more time.

Susan says…Birds Arrive Before the Lifeguard

Food always plays a major role for me in any trip, whether it is for work or pleasure.  I try to research in advance to find some potentially rewarding restaurants at my destination.  With only two weeks to plan, Ron & I decided to take a long weekend at Virginia Beach.

I attempted to do my usual, googling “Virginia Beach restaurants”, checking out google maps, google earth, trip advisor, etc.  The restaurants that looked interesting were all too far away from the hotel for walking and we wanted to park the car and leave it for the entire stay.  I had a difficult time finding very many choices near our hotel at the intersection of 21st Street and the Atlantic Ocean, interesting or not.  Even the Twitterati did not arm me with any recommendations.  A couple girlfriends suggested Rockafellers and a bar at Rudee Inlet and the restaurant in the Hilton.  That’s all.  I had to go in practically blind.  And I was nervous about that.
