Jamie says:  Before heading back to Gainesville, Kathryn and I had to satisfy our craving for a Sonny’s “chickensteak” hogie (Sonny’s spells hoagie h-o-g-i-e…wierd, I know) at Sonny’s Famous Steak Hogies in Hollywood (1857 N. 66th Avenue, Hollywood, FL 33024; tel. 954-989-0561).  This hole-in-the-wall restaurant, just recently received some fame by being highlighted on The Food Network and published in our local newspapers (the Sun-Sentinel and the Miami Herald)!  Because we don’t eat red meat, Kathryn and I ask for the steak hogie to be made with chicken.  We load it up with mushrooms, onions, green bell pepper, and provolone cheese; and order the red sauce on the side (to dip the bread in).  The bread is made fresh daily at the restaurant.  We also enjoy the salad, which is served with a hefty portion of Gorgonzola cheese (we also reserve the salad bowl to dip the bread in the dressing).  And I know this may sound silly, but Sonny’s Famous Steak Hogies Restaurant serves THE BEST ice in their beverages (Tijuana Flats takes a close second place).  Although the restaurant is simple, the food and service is great!  (The prices are very reasonable; but it’s cash only.)

Jamie says:  My all-time favorite BBQ restaurant is Scruby’s BBQ (8990 W. State Road 84, Davie, FL 33324; tel. 954-370-2774; additional locations in Pembroke Pines and Tamarac).  When I was younger, I went to the Pembroke Pines location with my family and Grandparents.  We now try to go to the Davie location at least once when we come home from school.  When you walk into the restaurant, the first thing you see is the big open pit grill with meats cooking to perfection; the first thing you smell, is the aroma of quality smoky BBQ.  For some of the best meat, I recommend their baby back ribs ribs, chicken breast, and pulled pork.  They are moist and incredibly flavorful.  On the table, they offer many bottles of BBQ sauces to choose from.  I always top my meat with the sweet BBQ sauce- it is my favorite.  For side dishes, their baked beans, garlic toast, and sweet potato with cinnamon sugar butter are all outstanding.   Although we just went, I can’t wait to go back.
