  • Estela's Mexican Restaurant


    Cuisine: Mexican
    Features: Children's menu, Kid-friendly, Live music, Outdoor seating

    Davis Islands: 209 E Davis Blvd., Tampa, 33606

    This arch-rival of mainland favorite Miguel's has lured many lunch and dinner patrons within its nest of wired lights and wooden booths, giving a true south-of-the-border feel, from the staff to the famous dishes. They've got the Negra, the Corona and the Dos Equis, sure. But boy do they kick a mean sangria here. Study the menu for hearty goodies such as tacos filled with freshly grilled carne asada, enchiladas topped with pork and soup. Chicken soup is crammed with rice, meat, fresh tomato, avocado and cilantro in a broth no one had the heart to defat. The food is fresh, and the sauces don't come from a can.

  • Grecian Island Restaurant


    Cuisine: Breakfast or brunch, Greek
    Features: Kid-friendly

    Davis Islands: 223 E Davis Blvd., Tampa, 33606

  • Bailey's Catering & Restaurant


    Cuisine: Southern
    Features: BYOB, Catering, Outdoor seating

    Davis Islands: 238 E Davis Blvd., Tampa, 33606

    Author/radio host/chef/owner Kim Bailey has a lot going on in this prominent corner of Davis Islands. The Southern fare will stick to your ribs, and there is no shortage of down-homeness. Highlights of the menu were a spunky take on shrimp and grits and crab cakes that we’re almost entirely composed of the theme ingredient. And you’ll want an order of the corn fritters. Whether it is as an appetizer or dessert is your call. Lunch and dinner, Wednesday through Saturday.
