Shop Locally


Many of the local restaurants in Gainesville were opened by University of Florida alum, but that is not always the case. Some of the local restaurants were started by people that moved to Gainesville and did want to conform to the traditional train-restaurant. The best way to find true local food joints is to look them up in a search engine. Whenever I have friends or family come into town I always get asked "take me to a restaurant we can not get back home", since I wanted to be prepared the next time I have guest, I needed to do research. My goal was to try three new local restaurants, the ones I chose to stimulate are: Adam's Rib Company, Satchel's Pizza, and The Swamp Restaurants.
