What better meal than Gator Tacos after just seeing live gators at Everglades National Park. The tacos were superb. I will be back.

Little restaurant that packs a big value and flavor! Several choices of gator. Basket, Taco, Kabob, Burger, Stir Fry--ALL grilled. Very, very good!! Not chewy at all. Wonderful cilantro cream sauce to accompany meal. They didnt drown it in the sauce either. If you not into Alligator there are plenty of other choices as well. mahi mahi, grouper, shrimp sandwiches... More

A small but friendly roadside eatery that gives great service and generous portions. We had regular burgers and gator bites with lots of sides and at a very low price - almost a family style outdoor barbecue atmosphere with similar hot and tasty and spicy food. A change from sitting in a stuffy restaurant and worrying about the bill. So... More

First of all, this small roadside place is NOT closed. This place is just a small studio size restaurant with a few seats inside, a larger outdoor eating area, and that is it. Nothing fancy here. But the food is all freshly cooked. So once you order, you can expect a wait of 10 - 15 minutes for your order.... More

I took my wife and kids to this place and it was closed. They used to serve great Gator Bites and finger food. I do not know what happened but we could not believe that they have closed their doors.

When you have finished visiting alligator farm, you can stop at Gator Grill. It is a small restaurant, you eat gator on the road. What can I say about gator ? It tastes a bit like chicken. If you want try eating gator, it is the place to be.

This is a road side stand. For those that don't want to try gator, their are hamburgers, hotdogs and fish sandwiches. Overall, we enjoyed it.

This is a small family-run restaurant on the approach into the Everglades National Park out of Homestead. There's outside seating and maybe 6-8 bar stool seats inside. We tried the gator bites tacos and a hamburger. Truthfully, the plain hamburger was my favorite by far. The tacos were good, but the gator bites are very chewy - a workout. The... More

We were looking forward to returning to have the best gator in the world but they are closed! My son has been depressed all evening. The number was disconnected and there was a sign on the door thanking their loyal fans and customers.
