Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurant is Open in St. Augustine, FL – Menu & Review

10557539_10152676875865900_26372715374021931_oBuffalo Wild Wings is now open in St. Augustine, Florida. Are you ready for some football? Buffalo Wild Wings is ready with 47  TV’s and two projectors I can’t think of a better spot to catch a game.

 

It’s big, it’s roomy, and it’s got a lot of energy bouncing around in the newly renovated building. There is fun upbeat  music playing and plenty to watch on the TV’s.  The design and layout is perfect. You can choose to be seated in the middle of all the action or off to the side for a more private dining experience.

 

I talked with General Manager Stephen Taylor and got the scoop on Saint Augustine’s newest hot spot for sports and great food. They’re  really excited about being a part of the Saint Augustine community and it shows. They are aware of how many of our residents are hearing impaired and they wanted to serve their needs. If you see a “D” embroidered on a wait staff’s uniform, they are fluent in sign language. We love it! Kudos to them.

 

IMG_2024Besides serving up delicious  famous wings, you will also find burgers, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches and wraps on the menu. They are known for Wing Tuesday and Boneless Thursday, on those days they have wings for 60 cents a piece.

 

We tried the Caribbean Jerk wings done with a exotic sauce made with red peppers and island spices. I loved those wings and  they were my favorite. We also tried a dry rub of Chipotle BBQ and the Sweet BBQ wings. We also had the Spinach Artichoke Chicken Flatbread.  It had a thin crust and was smothered in a creamy spinach artichoke dip. They serve up good pub style food. We sat at the bar and our bar server’s name was Kellen. I loved him! He was friendly, knowledgeable and he did everything he could to make sure we were happy. No matter if you’re 21 or 101, get your ID out! They card anyone ordering alcohol. We get it, but it is annoying when you know you’re old and you don’t look THAT GOOD!

 

IMG_2034From the way the menu looks you can customize your wings or any of their menu items. I counted over 22 different flavors. They have everything from Blazin’ to Sweet and some yummy ones to try like Asian Zing and Thai Curry.

Check out the menu for a complete look at the flavors & sauces.

The bar is huge with a friendly atmosphere and a great configuration. They have 30 beers on draft and 25 different bottles including some regional brews.

Happy Hour runs from 2pm – 7pm and has a nice $3.00 appetizer selection. They have call drinks featuring Absolute, Captain Morgan’s and Jack Daniels for $3.00 or $5.00 doubles as well as Domestic beer talls for $3.00. Now that’s a great happy hour…. they really do understand St. Augustine locals.  😉

If you’ve eaten there, let us know what you think. We bet they will be a welcome part of the community, especially on game day.

Salt Life Food Shack in St Augustine FL – Restaurant Review & Menu

 

Salt Life is now open for lunch and dinner. We will update our information and reviews as we try new food items.

1779077_617347728335566_6124390843502454065_nThe new Salt Life Food Shack in St Augustine Beach, Florida is  “BEACHY KEEN.”

St. Augustine has been waiting for this restaurant to open for a very long time and for good reason. The food is beyond fantastic! The location across the street from St. Augustine Beach Pier doesn’t hurt either, nor do the great prices and fabulous views. From the roof top deck you have the best of both worlds; sunset on one side and the Atlantic ocean on the other.

 

Now that I have had the grand tour, I can see why they took a little longer to open. Perfection! The place is perfect. The decor is the signature Salt Life colors of Turquoise & watery blues mixed with a lot of Teak colored wood. It has Beach written all over it with a casual, relaxed, resort like feel. Salt Life is the perfect place to “Eat, Drink and Be Salty.” Read More→

Ned’s Southside Kitchen- Better than Moms?

As a local, my clients often ask me for advice on the best restaurants In Saint Augustine.

When a new client has moved here from somewhere else or is visiting, the first thing I ask them is what restaurants have you tried? I love to hear their feedback on places. I always ask have you tried Ned’s Southside Kitchen? If they have not, then I begin by telling them it’s the best food at very reasonable prices. They will be amazed at the large variety on the menu. Ned’s has everything, wonderful salads, hummus platter,  fried shrimp and shrimp and grits (my favorite.)  For the meat lovers they serve prime rib specials, it’s out of this world and the next day they have prime rib sandwiches. I myself like their patty melt. Ned picked out the best rye bread to make his patty melt, he stands out from the rests. Ned is known for the size of his portions. They even serve turkey with stuffing, gravy and mashed potatoes. I have friends that are vegetarians and we can all go out to Ned’s and order something from the menu and be satisfied when we leave. Oh, I almost forgot, save room for desserts. They serve Crème Brulee, Carrot cake, Raspberry Chambord, Ambrosia cheesecake and Humming bird cake. The Boston cream cake is delicious.

You Won’t Lose Your MoJo Eating this BBQ in St Augustine

I grew up in South Florida where grilling and BBQ goes hand in hand. In the summer we would spend time in Arkansas and in Memphis. My grandparents lived there, therefore, I grew up on BBQ. So when I heard a new BBQ place moved into town I had to check it out. My husband Wayne and I went to MoJo Old City BBQ  on our day off and BOY were  we  pleasantly surprised! We ordered the BBQ rib tips for an appetizer.  I had the fried catfish and Wayne had the pulled pork Quesada for dinner. They were both delicious!

 

 

 I heard from a friend that the onion rings were very good there. The way she described them made me want to go out immediately and try the onion rings. I waited until Monday my next day off and went to lunch with my sister in-law. I went there for the onion rings UNTIL my sister in law said, “have you had the BBQ Chicken Nacho’s yet?” That is what we ordered Nachos and rings. Once again, we were not disappointed. Everything was so flavorful. I can see why my friend raved about the onion rings, they were the best I’ve had so far. There is so much chicken on the nachos it was hard to believe it was an appetizer portion. I thought to myself, I could bring an order of the nacho to the salon and feed all four girls for sure.

 

 The restaurant is quite large, they have indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor patios are “Dog Friendly” too. It has a rustic atmosphere, and the service is very good. This is a family friendly restaurant. It is a real pit BBQ so the ribs and chicken are delicious and everything is fresh. The sweet tea is brewed perfect and so refreshing. The Catfish I ordered was a fresh catch. You can definitely  taste the difference. I will be back with friends! In addition, the way this town is buzzing about the new BBQ place downtown  there was no doubt it would be a local’s favorite in no time!
