One of our favorite shows on Food Network is Guy Fieri's Diners Drive-Ins, and Dives. In one episode, Guy went to a place called Keegan's in Indian Rocks Beach, FL. I knew of IRB because that's where my BFF Angelle got married! So Barry and I said next time we had the time when we were in the area we'd go. Well, last weekend - we went! We went down to visit our cousin, so it was a perfect excuse to take her to dinner. Their claim to fame is the Grilled Octopus. It was the first time I've ever had octopus, and it was pretty good! I ended up having a broiled escolar that was the best fish I've ever had, but that's a different blog.
Anyway, now that we've popped our Visiting-Places-We've-Seen-On-TV cherry, we're ready for more! And, Lo! and Behold! We found our next place. After watching Diners Drive-ins and Dives tonight, Guy went to a place called the Bar-b-q King Drive in... Charlotte, NC! SOOOO, as if i wasn't super excited already to see the Gallers and Maddexes, now we get to go to the Bar-B-Q KING! YESSSSSS.
Next stop... Hackney's, which is around the corner from my Grandparents in Glenview, IL :)
