Sardines and potted meat would be a safe bet.

To the OP. I think there may be a dud restaurant here and there in The Villages but all? I don't think so. Mission Style BBQ isn't even in our community so I don't think we can take credit for that terrible place as you called it. We had take-out from there the other day and it was just perfect.

Maybe when our current predicament improves so will the service and the quality of the meals locally. When these restaurants are cranking they are pretty good. They are operating under difficult circumstances and in my eyes deserve a break for the little things that aren't just perfect.

We have to help you find something you like or you will burn out on The Bone---Fish! Good Luck. Maybe you are on a bad streak. Try Culvers. That will bring up your spirits.

We have lived in TV for 8years and eat out frequently. The restaurants that we regularly go to have opened since we have moved here. ChopHouse BlueFin, Wolfgang Puck, Sammy's, Mezza Luna, I bar b que and Piesano's are our favorites. Additionally, there are very good restaurants in Ocala and Turners in Leesburg is excellent. Additionally, we like Sakura and Bamboo Bistro.

Nice to hear the truth people come here pay a lot of money for mediocre service and food.

There are many good restaurants in the area....for breakfast just ate at First Watch. Out of the area is Ivy On The Square in Ocala (one of the best restaurants in greater area).

I find the service and food to be very good in TV. I know what restaurants to avoid. I do not think the food is over priced.

If that’s true, then did either or both contact the county health department? I have eaten there regularly for the last three years and never had an issue and this is the first time anyone has ever posted that someone who ate there got food poisoning

They probably were a couple and share food.

One time I did not want what my wife ordered. She insisted I try a bite which I did.

After she asked me if it tasted OK. From one bite I thought it alright but I wouldn't have ordered it.

She was violently sick with food poisoning and I had a mild case.

Just saying....

I am so happy that I like almost all food. Not a discriminating bone in my body. I would hate to be that selective.
