For an excellent authentic Indian meal in Hernando County, look no further than the Taj on Cortez Blvd. Their menu is extensive and the prices reflect the quality of food you are served. Taj is related to the Taj Indian Cuisine restaurant in Tampa.
Taj Indian Cuisine is located in the Western Way plaza near Beacon Theatres. It has been there for several years. The restaurant has a large interior and can handle a pretty large party.
Tamara and Jim Ferguson opened their restaurant in January of 2016 off of 41 in Brooksville. The sunny, brightly colored exterior caught my eye and I decided to give the place a try. Tamara, the cook, is originally from Jamaica. She begins preparing her family recipes early each morning, so there is time for the ingredients and flavors to simmer and meld together before their lunchtime crowd.
Copacabana is in the Mariner Crossing Shopping Center on the corner of Northcliffe Boulevard and Mariner Boulevard. It has been serving the area for eight years. It serves Cuban, Puerto Rican & Dominican Dishes. It is a great value with large portions and reasonable prices.
I would like to start off by saying I am unaffiliated with Rocco's Pizza Restaurant. I happen to have the same name as the pizza restaurant, but it is not named after me. It is named after the youngest son of the owners.
The BarbieCue food truck has a slogan stating that it serves the "sexist BBQ in Florida!" All I can say about that is the young man who served me did not happen to look like the woman on their truck. You can find the food truck at Marker 48 on Wednesday through Saturday from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm. They also state that everything is fresh, never frozen, and homemade including all their rubs and sauces.
BarbieCue offers a number of meats and sides. The meats they offer are smoked ribs, pork, chicken, and brisket. They also have a variety of sides.
Richie's cheesesteak is located on Deltona Boulevard near highway 50. The restaurant is small, but spotless. They have a large pass through to the kitchen so you can talk with the chef as he prepares your meal. Some people have complained about the wait, but we had our cheesesteaks and fries in fifteen minutes.
GARDEN GROVE - Ron's Roadside Grille is one of those barbeque restaurants that perfectly looks the part. It is located just south of Spring Hill Drive on US 41. It is a small blue house with the two smokers set up outside. There is a large pile of cut firewood. The dining area is a small building and a few tables outside.
