We were on holiday in Florida last week. Locals suggested we MUST eat out at The Freezer in Homosassa. How right they were!
Be warned - no reservations, and cash only. But even so, well worth the trip off the beaten track, at the very end of the country road which leads through Homosassa.
We arriived at 5pm, to find the place packed. First impression - a half-finished shack, held up with timber and sheltered from the outside world with sheets of blue plastic. We went inside, and were seated in 5 minutes. Hundreds of people, all obviously having a ball. No menus, no frills, just a great atmosphere and fantastic food! Decor? What decor? Neon signs, plain wooden tables and chairs, a huge roll of kitchen paper at each table, but the food is unbelievable!
The smoked mullet dip, served with an entire sleeve of saltine crackers was to die for! The steaks (huge) were fantastic, perfectly spiced and perfectly barbequed. The shrimp - well, qute simply the best shrimp I've ever tasted, anywhere in the world, and was perfectly spiced and perfectly cooked, served with a hot dipping sauce. Again, a warning: 'full shrimp' means an order of 2¼ pounds, and 'half shrimp' means 1¼ pounds of shrimp!! Everything is served on polystyrene (styrofoam) plates, beer, wine or soft drinks are all in plastic cups. But so what? You don't go there for fine dining, but everything was great. Our order arrived within ten minutes of ordering.
The Freezer is a place anyone who loves great food (and especially shrimp) simply must not miss!
