To be honest, Antojitos is not much too look at when you're just driving by. Not that it's not an attractive building, but you really wouldn't expect it to be as incredible as it really is. They serve delicious authentic Mexican food that is absolutely delicious. All of their food is expertly crafted with amazing, fresh ingredients. Even the sides like the rice are absolutely perfect. They have excellent combo dishes as well as extremely reasonably priced lunch specials. Everything is very laid back and clean. And you can fully expect to receive a ton of food when you order that you can enjoy for leftovers, which is always a great plus!

Similar to Antojitos, you really wouldn't think much of Moore Haven Restaurant by just driving past it. In fact, it's pretty hard to find, and it really looks like somebody's home from the outside. But on the inside, it is truly like night and day. They have a great aesthetic on the inside with checkered table cloths, lattice walls dividing the dining area with the kitchen, and that obligatory old man regular who always has a smile on his face when you walk in. They have different specials every day for lunch, and they have breakfast on the weekends. There are so many different things to love about Moore Haven Restaurant and you absolutely must give them a shot!

Jalapeno's is a delicious, authentic Mexican restaurants which replicates the street vendor style tacos in an outdoor indoor restaurant setting that is absolutely great.

Cafe 80 is a fantastic, hidden gem from the Moore Haven area that is absolutely incredible. it is a casual dining place that has extremely friendly servers as well as owners who always seem to be there, helping people out happily. They have really incredibly inexpensive prices while also having very generous portions. The food is nothing to forget about either, as it is absolutely delicious! They serve Cuban food which is to die for, and we strongly recommend their Cuban Sandwich as well as their Weekly Specials which can have anything as great as Roast Beef to Ground Beef Creole Style to the Pork and Chicken Fricassee which is absolutely worth stepping out of your door for. Cafe 80 is a great place for lunch, dinner, and everything in between!

If you're looking for a great place with unbelievable atmosphere, then Lightsey's Restaurant is a great place for you to check out. Sure, they don't have the biggest staff of any restaurant in the area, but they really don't need to. They really bring light to the phrase "less is more." They never feel short handed because they are greatly attentive and are always looking to help out their customers. You absolutely must try their cole slaw! It is one of their most popular items, and it's only a side! Food at Lightsey's is absolutely amazing. Some of our favorites include the blackened fish wrap which is packed full of fish that is done perfectly. Everything on the menu is perfectly made and is crafted with fresh ingredients. We can't recommend Lightsey's Restaurant enough!
