Anything - Jacksonville/Orange Park

  • 4

Staying with relatives in Orange Park. If I eat at another chain I might die. Looking for good recs -- not fine dining just good food at local establishment.

  1. Bistro AIX, Kickbacks, and French Pantry. All good picks.

    1. Like Thai? Try Thai Garden on Blanding - convenient to OP and very good. Otherwise, come up the road and try Orsay on Park St. (not to be confused w/ Park Ave. in OP) in Jax. Very good french bistro. I hear Sarnelli's Italian on park Ave. just south of Kingsley is OK from friends in the area - I haven't been there in many years. Also, you could try Mojo's BBQ down on 220 in Fleming Island as well, or Whitey's Fish Camp a little bit farther out on 220 for some local flavor. Mojo's is probably the top 'cue in the area - lots of options down in OP. Not a chain in the bunch.

      1. re: mezzrow

        while whiteys can be a fun place to grab a few drinks, the food is simply horrible.

      2. Try Pompeii Pizza on Park, just past Kingsley heading towards Fleming Island. Coal-fired pizza. Service can be slow but, but that oven gives the nice browned bubbles on the crust. My favorite is the meatball ricotta pizza.
