Homestead, Florida is surprising full of simple and good restaurants. This is a quick list of Andy (my fiancee) and my favorite places. No chain restaurants here! This list includes food places for all appetites. Visit one before my art exhibit opening Once Drove Through Florida at the Children's Gallery and Art Center on the evening of August 20th. If a place was missed, share as a comment, please.
Just want a snack? Try some of the best fruit milkshakes in this world at Robert Is Here.

For pizza and garlic rolls from heaven and a bueno-bonito-barato (good, pretty, cheap) experience, Mamma Mia's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria 2 is unbeatable.
Fresh and local seafood off the truck daily from the Keys can be found at Captain's Restaurant and Seafood. Try their specials, like banana rum scallops.
New place opened in the last year, featuring Chef Jodrick's cooking creations! Stop by and get the best mofongo or Mongolian Beef in the South Florida area. Chefs On the Run of Homestead is the place for gourmet food. Daily specials are posted by Jessica on their Facebook page. You will leave happy!
Mexican food without frills, family owned Rosita's has great chips and salsa, but La Cruzada Taqueria is also one of our favorite eateries. Your choice here, because each is down home Mexican food!
Even Homestead, Florida has a Starbucks. However, if you are looking for traditional Cuban sandwiches, cafe cubano, pastelitos, etc. for a picnic, go to Cuba Bakery. Otherwise, Mario's Latin Cafe has real Cuban food by Cuban cooks.
Suvi Thai and Sushi Restaurant has sushi and thai food. All the food here is wonderful…if you are looking for hot and spicy, pay attention when the servers ask you to rate how hot!
Peking House has the best standard Chinese food.
Mutineer Restaurant has the best range of American foods with steaks and seafood items. You can eat in the formal dining room or at the Wharf Lounge bar.
Salvadorian food is found at Antojitos Mexican and Salvadoreños Restaurante. Try pupusas and other unique items.
Three different ice cream experiences are in Homestead. For Cuban and tropical flavor ice cream, visit 4 JJJJ Pizzeria, Ice Cream, and Restaurant. For Mexican flavors, La Michoacana Mexican was recommended by the Miami Herald. For a more American tradition with a twist, try Scoops Creamery.
