The Happy Tomato is by far my favorite place for barbecue. Love the pulled pork and the ribs. Rich and his crew also put together some real nice salad sandwiches with either shrimp, tuna or chicken.
The Happy Tomato has a pretty outdoor courtyard with a few tables for enjoying your lunch. But where can you eat if you crave air conditioned comfort? Get your Happy Tomato lunch to go and walk across the street to another of my favorite spots, the Green Turtle Tavern. You can sit at the bar in their AC, enjoy the best barbecue and have a cold pint or two to go with your lunch. With 40 different beers to choose from you’ll be sure to find something that goes with that Rib and Chicken Plate that you brought with you, all in the comfort of air conditioning!
And don’t forget, if you love barbecue the Great Southern Tailgate Cook Off is coming to Amelia Island on August 24th and 25th!
