Try It: Flaming Grill's Gator Bites


Posted on December 24


Ever tried alligator? If you’re curious, Flaming Grill Café (which also happens to crank out some of the best burgers in town) offers intrepid diners a plate of battered, deep-fried “gator bites.” Lightly sprinkled with a spicy pico de gallo salsa and served with a house-made aioli reminiscent of Thousand-Island dressing, the springy white meat “bites” are tender, mild and decidedly tasty. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, the restaurant also offers deep-fried python (really!) and kangaroo burgers.
