If you're a foodie (like me), you will love The Burnt Tongue. I promise you won't be disappointed.

This place is great! They are local and serve fresh seasonal food with ingredients that they buy from the Hamilton Farmers Market. Their soups change daily with a few regular ones in rotation.

Their hamburgers are like old-time grandparents' hamburgers. Their grilled cheeses, fries and soups will never disappoint you.

Seasoned Restaurant

From the moment we walked in, we felt at home. Drew was an absolute delight to chat with during pre-dinner drinks on the patio.

He even gave us a sneak peek into what he could make for us should we choose to dine there on our visit.

After both being pleased with our appetizers and entrees, I would highly recommend choosing Seasoned as your next dining destination!

Food Box Restaurant is such a heavenly place. The food is so good and the servings are huge. I've been to all three in Adelaide and each one has great service and atmosphere.

They have some awesome events as well, like comedy on certain days of the week!

Everybody knows about these places because they're just so great in general! I've recommended it to my friends and we'll definitely go back again!

I was an avid Yelper for many years and thus, I came to Union Chicken after hours of deliberation because it had the highest rating of any other restaurant in the area.

To my great astonishment I found it to be not just a restaurant, but a true culinary experience.

The whole ambiance is antique and rustic and oh, how I love that shabby chic aesthetic!

If, like me, you love southern food then you will definitely fall in love with Union Chicken's fried chicken.

What can I say? They're damn good at what they do here at Union Chicken.
