The logo is an upside-down cowboy boot in the shape of Florida, with a menu of "cowboy classics" like housemade corned beef hash or gator tail po' boys. It inherited a robust breakfast business from its time as Farmer John's, with a raft of crowd-pleasing omelets and pancakes. The Bokeelia shrimp omelet is packed with sliced avocado, jack and cheddar, onion and diced tomato and at least half a dozen fat, fresh-tasting shrimp. Add skillet potatoes or grits and a fluffy biscuit, and it's a serious rib-sticker. Blueberry pancakes, as big as Frisbees, prove that the kitchen has the light-and-fluffy mojo with sweet breakfast treats as well. At lunch the warm, diner-like setting gets bustling with folks ordering burgers, sandwiches or more Florida-centric fare like fried grouper cheeks. Cash only.
