Delly Deck (St. Thomas)

St. Thomas. Gorgeous island. The place to find great souvenirs and nice places to eat near the pier. Of course, the beautiful beaches are okay as well. : )

We walked around and did some shopping before we arrived to Delly Deck. We entered and only saw outside seating. We then saw some people coming out of a door and we noticed there was an inside area. We went inside for some AC.

According to our server this place has been here for over 30 years. Amazing. Reviews seem to say that they have the best breakfast in town. Wish I could have tried it for myself. We came for lunch. Now let’s talk COMIDA!!

Skinny Dip with French Fries. Their version of a Philly cheese steak sandwich. The Au Jus made this sandwich ten times better. Lots of flavor.

Fried Chicken with a side salad. The Big Cheese was on a mission when she ordered this. I won’t lie I tried some and it was fantastic. It had a sweet flavor to it. They must put some magic in the batter. All I needed was a waffle on the side. : )

Another shot of the Skinny Dip.

Our server was on it today. Reviews say they take long. We had quick and friendly service with a smile. Lots of locals and tourist come here. When you are in the area come and check them out.

Sunshine Restaurant

We had to laugh about this one. It’s closed on Tuesdays. Random day, but they are not open. We had to come back on Wednesday just to give it a try.

Pete, the owner has had this place for 43 years. He is still there making all the magic happen in the kitchen.

Peggy was our server today and she was awesome. Super friendly!

The hot sauces were the first thing on our table. They must know our style. Papi and I love hot sauces.

The rib eye was a must for breakfast. Ita ordered this dish and finished the whole thing.

Mine was the Chopped Steak with Onions. Very tasty. It was like having a well made burger for breakfast. YUM!

@Xobejm had the Waffle. Plain as always. This was the best waffle we had all week. My mom had a waffle this week, but this one was much better.

Scrambled Eggs, Ham, and Hash browns. We tend to get the usual so we can compare and see which is better.

Eggs over medium, hash browns, and ham. So far I would say Sunshine has my vote. The food is good and the service is even better.

Sunshine Skillet. With all the fixins inside. Green peppers, corn beef hash, and topped with eggs done your way.

Feast shot. We enjoy every moment of eating. Never a dull moment at the table. BUEN PROVECHO to us!

Sunshine Restaurant is a must while in the city. They have a second restaurant as well. Pete, the owner is a very laid back guy who loves to work and is enjoying every moment of it. 43 years and going strong. If you are ever in the area check them out. Ask for Peggy.

Dapper’s Restaurant

I am guessing there is a West somewhere around these parts as well. My mom comes here every week with a friend.

My dad says this place is only for senior citizens and doesn’t like coming here. I said we need to check it out ourselves and see what happens.

For as long as I can remember this place has been here. It is located in the Addison Mall. There is a Target store within this mall now. My, my, how things have changed. I used to bank at Household Bank way back in the day. Ahhhh…….memories.

This morning we were hungry and ready for a great breakfast. As you all know my favorite is having a Mexican breakfast with steak, eggs, Chilaquiles, rice, and beans. But today I had to do something different.

Thin Waffle. Yep, that’s what I said. My mom special orders a thin waffle. This was delicious. My mom gave me a bite and I swear I am ordering it like this from now on.

Eggs, over medium, hash browns with cheese sauce and sausage.

Side of Ham. This was my favorite part of the meal.

@Xobejm had her usual. Scrambled eggs, sausage, and hash browns.

@Tarajroth had the French Toast, Eggs, over easy, and bacon

Papi had the huevos rancheros omelette and hash browns.

Pancakes. They must put something in the batter. These are very tasty.

Feast Shot. I have to always include these shots. So much joy to eat with family.

Great service and decent prices. Coffee keeps on coming and the restaurant is very clean. Nice and quiet which is what I loved the most about it. This is a must try in the city.

El Gordo Restaurant

Thanks to good friends who recommend great restaurants in Chicago. I was in Chicago visiting my parents for a few days.

Chicago has so many local restaurants that have been here for several years and have the same customers coming here for years. My favorite type of food to eat while I am here is Mexican. Orlando seems to be lacking compared to Chicago.

@Tarajroth ordered the Strawberry Margarita.

@Xobejm ordered their Lemonade.

Fresh guacamole. It was just okay. Nothing to write home about. Didn’t taste as fresh as it claimed it would.

Queso fundido with chorizo. Now, this one was perfect. I ordered it with corn tortillas. All that cheese would make @wholycheesus very happy.

Had to take a pic of this. It is the way to the bar that they have next door.

Burrito Suizo de Carne Asada. Later I will show the inside. Huge portions! This was very tasty. I ate half and took the other half home. I always finish all my food, but tonight I couldn’t.

Guisado De Puerco. This was Papi’s dish. Papi wanted it as spicy as possible. The server suggested the green sauce. Papi loved how spicy it was and loved the flavor.

Enchiladas Suizas de Pollo. This was Ita’s dish. Ita liked them. She didn’t love them. The red sauce was a bit overwhelming for her.

Chimichanga De Pollo with rice and beans. This was my friends dish.

@xobejm ordered the steak tacos. They came with lettuce which is a first for me. She seemed to have liked them. She prefers just onions and cilantro.

Torta de Carne Asada. This was my others friends dish. It looked fantastic.

Burrito Suizo (inside shot) I like to order it with steak, onions, and cilantro. The meat was well prepared and it truly was the perfect bite.

Cheesecake. Very good.

Tres Leches. Their best dessert in the restaurant in my opinion.

Flan. I did not like it. As I mention in my other blogs, I am very picky about my flan. This is one did not pass the test.

All three desserts. See if you can find the hidden Mickey (Disney reference)

Great place to come and hang out. Very loud when we went. Soccer games are playing in the background and kids are screaming. Our server was very helpful and patient with us. The woman who I spoke to at the register had a rude sort of attitude when I asked about parking in the back. Not a great way to impress a customer when entering. Food was great! The guacamole needs some help.
