Tortugas is a great little local restaurant slightly off the beaten path. They serve Southern style food with a Caribbean flair. They also serve beer, wine, and these great organic agave margaritas (you must try one!). My favorite meals are the meatloaf sandwich, blackened chicken pasta, and shrimp & grits. They also have an outstanding brunch until 3 on Sat & Sun that rocks my world. I lovelovelove their version of Juevos Rancheros, and they've got yummy french toast that is topped with a unique pecan syrup they make. Oh, their burger is completely delicious. Try anything, you will love it! It is also great that it is close enough to downtown to not feel like a trek, but far enough away that they are never uncomfortably crowded.
