Baron's is amazing. But requires that one take out a second mortgage to BBQ a few steaks. Love their sausages, though - cheap and delish.

No kidding... Scolari's burgers might be the best food on the island.

i think c'era una volta is DISGUSTING i cant believe people like that place. over priced garbage.

I know right! I think Nation's used to be good but not so much any more. I still go for the grilled cheese because it's a bit reminiscent of the Woolworth's lunch counter. The pie is horrible now. The crust is always soggy.
