95 Awesomely Named Food and Drink Joints Along A1A

After an exhaustive, virtual ride down A1A via Google Maps, as well as performing several cuts to our original list (over 400 at one point), Larcy and I have chosen the following as food and drink establishments with the coolest, most A1Aish monikers along or close to A1A, and with the potential for awesome t-shirts (though we are sure some probably do not sell them but should). The list is basically in order from north to south.

We chose 95 of these joints in honor of I-95, which will get you up and down Florida’s east coast more quickly, but will also deprive you of hitting these independently-owned spots that exude an A1A personality. Of course, you will find a Cracker Barrel or any fast-food restaurant along I-95—ho hum, indeed.

We would love to hear comments on any of these joints you have visited. Also, if you feel we left any cool-named joints off this list, let us know. This is, however, our list, and we are sticking to it (for now, anyhow).
