Coyo (Wynwood)

Located in the heart of Wynwood, Coyo is a taco bar specializing in authentic Mexican tacos of all kinds. They serve soft corn tortilla tacos of any meat of your choice. There are over 15 different taco styles you can choose from. Choices include meats such as: pork, chicken, steak, fish, shrimp, octopus, and even duck.

I've been to Coyo a few times this past year. On each occasion, I've tried a few different tacos each time. My favorite ones are the Pollo al Carbon and the Carne Asado. The atmosphere is also very cool. You enter, order your food, pay, and then sit down while they bring you your food. The prices are very reasonable too. I suggest visiting the Wynwood Walls after you go to Coyo to see the amazing murals and funky paintings that make Wynwood unique. The walls are located about a block or two down from Coyo.

On weekend nights, Coyo turns into a bar/club. There is a door in the back of the restaurant that enters into another room with a full bar and loud music. Although I have never been, I have heard great reviews. I reccomend eating at Coyo, and if old enough, visiting the bar in the hidden room behind it.

Flanigan's (Pinecrest)

You can never go wrong with Flanigan's.  I'm pretty sure everyone in the Pinecrest area has been here before.  It is a great place to go to dinner with your family or even to watch a sports game.  The atmosphere is very welcoming and the employees treat their customers well.  It's a nicer version of a sport's bar with a wide menu range.

My favorite thing on the menu is the Blackened Tilapia.  It is perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection.  All of the appetizers are also very tasty, especially the wings and tumbleweed.   I also like to go to Flanigan's on Mondays for Mexican Monday.  Here, you can buy a pitcher of any beverage and get a free large plate of cheesy nachos.  They have specials like that throughout the whole week.

The best part about Flanigan's is the prices, everything is affordable.  This is one of the few places you can get a Mahi Mahi dish for cheap.  I go to Flanigan's about once a week with my mom.  We like going after my Lacrosse games.  I recommend trying Flanigan's if you have never been.
