I have visitors here in florida this week that would be interested in trying alligator meat. We live in south florida so any recommendations for that area would be greatly appreciated.

      CJ's Draft House in Deerfield Beach (Hillsboro Blvd. & Military Trail) serves alligator as appetizers -- grilled, not fried, which is a bit unusual. They must marinade the gator strips, because they are fairly tender.

      CJ's is essentially a sports bar, but with above average food.

        just so you know, it is very helpful when posting to include geographic information in the title of the thread. such as "where to finf alligator in Delray beach."

          Any of the RJ Gators restaurants, which are ubiquitous. Also, Conchy Joe's in Jensen Beach.
