Hall of Fame

Bert and Tara Gill are so local green and Gator orange that you can taste modern college-town cheer in every bite from UF beef and Florida octopus to the sloppy tempeh Joe. They champion home-grown at Mildred’s, burgers at New Deal Cafe and pure Southern fried at Blue Gill Quality Foods (pork-rind fried chicken).
