Waffle House

We don't have a Waffle House back home so we always try to stop at one on vacation. This one is right next to an Air Force base, and still the only one I've ever stopped at without a military discount. Not s huge deal, just surprising since they even have one back in Ohio no where near a military base. We had great service. Our waitress was Sarah and she was friendly and attentive. Our food came very quickly and was good. All in all, it was a good experience.
Loveee Waffle House! I'm from California where we don't have any but man are we missing out. Workers are always happy and singing to the radio, food is great and is served out quickly with a smile. Oh and they are always open so I will be coming here frequently at random hours of the day. Would definitely recommend to everyone!
Great place for a quick breakfast that would take me all night to cook! Quick service

Reviews:
Absolutely love this place. The beer selection is awesome and the food is delicious. It's a bit tricky finding the place if you aren't local but it's worth it.
So I ran into karaoke night and the place seems to be packed with regulars. The beer selection is substantial, if you know what your looking for in a beer you'll find it here. Ages run from late 20s to upper middle age.
So this is my third time here in two weeks. That means a lot of things. 1. It is a small establishment but it is comfortable. 2. 75 beers of all types on tap and11 TV's 3. Crispy wings if you like your wings crispy which I do. 4.Well staffed. So overall great time and great beer. Give it a try.

The Greek food here is really good. Everything seems authentic and the service is nice. I will definitely be returning.
good food, great service! I'll be back. pretty big portions good value.
Damn tasty and damn good value. We were in a hurry and we got Tsunami of gyro meat before we even passed the menus in. Definitely recommend - although I question the chance of living long live per the restaurant motto...

Pepper’s Mexican Cantina

Reviews:
Bland Mexican Fare With Weak Margaritas. Just OK.
Chips and salsa are pretty good. The queso dip is ok... I've had better but then again for this area it may be the best you can get. Very clean restaurant smells delicious and they have awesome music (Latin). Well the food is lacking flavor the flour tortillas are store bought, refried beans are canned refried beans although I asked and they said no but the flavor was just the same. The ambience is nice I was told the margaritas are good here. But all I liked was the chips and salsa.... Rice lacked flavor! I guess coming from Texas this will be the best we can get.... :(
Upon entering you can tell it is a very family friendly environment. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was decent. The menu is a little confusing since there were so many items. One funny aspect was the misspelling of the Spanish word for kitchen "cocina" was spelled "cucina" which is Italian.

We recently moved back to this area. Two or three times a month, my husband and I get Subway from this location. The food is fresh and tastey. We would normally get a sweet treat,cookie, to finish our meal. At this location they never have Chocolate chip which isnt a huge deal but a variety would be nice.

Rocco’s Sub Shop

1191-B Eglin Pkwy

Reviews:
This new sub shop's attempt to imitate Lenny's Sub Shop made me feel incredibly uncomfortable. The layout was the same as Lenny's and the menu was almost a number for number replica of Lenny's menu. They even have hot relish, like Lenny's. The only problem is none of it lives up to Lenny's standard. I had the Chicken Philly because I was in the mood for a hot sub and this is my go-to hot sub at Lenny's. The bread was weird and the sandwich had considerably less meat than what I'm accustomed to at Lenny's. Choosing chips proved to be quite difficult too. What happened to having various flavors of potato chips?! To top it all off, the place is decorated in '50s decor which confused me even more. Overall, it satisfied my need to eat a quick lunch and the staff was very nice, so I gave it a 3. So, if you're in Shalimar and want a sandwich, but can't drive all the way to Lenny's in FWB, go here. Going forward, my advice to Rocco would be to just be yourself, don't try to be Lenny. The people will like you for who you really are.
Great subs, even better pizza. Great prices and Military discount too!! Have ordered for catering and family meals and they are a hit. They have beer also!! Great service and friendly staff. Check them out today!!
Poorest excuse for a $7 italian salad or any salad I've ever seen. a few chunks of sliced up ham and maybe 2 slices of pepperoni no blk olives.& pre-packaged mini croutons.very disappointed. Got home with our subs and they were wrong. Ugh not a good first impression at all. Subs are very small for the prices paid. Pizza is really thin and tastes like it came out of a DIY kit from the grocery. Not recommended at all

McDonald’s

Reviews:
Fast, prompt service. Food is business as usual but they have a new oatmeal in this season, Blueberry Banana - it was good!
This McDonalds is very slow, and according to the manager, they are not a "participating location" for coupons. I won't be back.
Good location if you are on base but don't think what the menu says is true. When it gives you the option to get milk or apple juice they charge you extra!!! Also their new wraps, they don't prepare then like they are supposed to (not a whole breast) and they slap the food together like its nothing! I mean cheese hanging off the burger, pickles missing, bun half off the sandwich too and don't expect a ten piece, it will be an eight!!! I will drive the extra few miles to go to another McDonald's before this one ever again. And I know they could do better, I have three kids and out of all the McDonald's we go to this is a first for us and by far the worst!!! Just called the corporate office, told them how they messed up my chicken wraps...no spring greens, no cheese on one, no sweet sauce on the other and like 5 strips of think chicken BETWEEN THEM BOTH... and corporate said they would call them and take care if it. I hope!! I called seven times or so and that store never picked up!! Update as things happen or change. The McDonald in question called me to apologize, the manager told me that it was a training person on the food preparation line that day and she was extremely sorry that the day manager wasn't watching him when he prepared our food. She insured me that they would keep an eye on them and even offered me coupons for a replacement Premium wrap (I took the offer but probably wont use it, cant hold it against all McDonald if the trainee wasn't being trained right) and tole me if anything else happened to us there to call and request her ad she would take care of it right away. She was nice but i hate that the whole experience was due to un-trained people as she put it. Please take pride in your work and train the new people you hire right! Overall I gave them an extra star because the manager did call, apologize and offer replacement coupons and took the slip up on herself saying that they were going to train them better. She took the blame when it wasn't her fault so being honest I gave them another star for her.

Sonic Drive-In of Shalimar

1166 Eglin Pkwy
Shalimar, 32579
Reviews:
It's a Sonic. Which, to me, is a wonderful thing. However, I give this one only 3 stars because the french fries are always wilted/old-tasting/possibly undercooked. Never had a problem with the beverages, though.
I've been disappointed by this sonic for the last time. We went around 9:30pm tonight. There were two cars in the drive thru, one waiting for food and one waiting to order. It was taking so long for the car in front of us to even be aloud to order that we decided to pull up to one of the car hop spots. We decided on what to order, all cars were gone at this point except another in a car hop spot. We pressed the order button and waited and nothing happened. After two minutes of waiting we pressed it again and once again nothing. After another few minutes we decided to just leave and head to another place in town. Sad thing is all we wanted were a few drinks.
Should have a selection for 'negative' stars. Went there the first time and the hamburger was cold, the tables outside were filthy and they had NO bananas for their banana split! Said they were out for 2 days. Publix is right down the street... So we tried them again (foolishly) last Sat night for some ice cream. We optimistically decided t to order the banana split! The cigarette smoker sitting outside apparently was the only worker that night because he went inside when we drove up. Tonight they had bananas... but we didn't want the pineapple so said 'just put strawberries where there would have been the pineapple". For that they would charge us an extra dollar. AND an extra 2 dollars for 2 glasses of water. Do they not wonder why, on a Saturday night, that place was empty? They must have out-of-town owners. Never again!

Tropical Smoothie Cafe

Reviews:
Worst TS EVER!!! The guy is incrediably rude everything you order he tells you 'This is gunna take a really looong time' then he rools his eyes at you im the only one here 2 Smoothies 2 breakfast wraps still waiting 15 minutes later i had a coupon for a $1.99 24 oz smoothie and he said oh no no we dont allow these coupons... No wonder this place looks closed
One of the few chains I love, but seriously need to keep their employees in check. Literally every single time I've been here something is wrong with my order. I always order a island green with no sugar, every single time I get sugar. I ordered a Chipotle chicken today, got a pesto chicken. Really? I feel like this is isolated to the guy with headphones ALWAYS in his ear. Dude, you're at work, take the fucking headphones off! I will be taking my business elsewhere from now on.
I thought I would come to this location instead of the horrible one on racetrack. I expected a least a little better service. I was wrong. The woman taking orders couldn't care a bit and everyone just wandered around like they had nothing better to do. A gentleman (who I guess worked there and got let go) came in DEMANDING his check and making a huge fuss. No one in the building seemed to care about calming this guy there or reassuring the customers that they had it under control. Hands down the worst smoothie place. I guess it's time to try the one by the mall

Burger King

Reviews:
The food is great. But service is horrible. It took 17 minutes to make two milkshakes! It was crappy and thick. Forgetful Mc Donalds is better than this.
Very slow service. My order was wrong and when I took it back the manager told me she only had two people working and "she didn't need any jerks complaining". She refused to give me the correct order and told me if I did not like what I was given not to come back. I only ordered one burger, waited 15 minutes, and was given the wrong order. Not a very complex order at all. Finally another employee gave me the correct sandwich after she walked away, still yelling about refusing to deal with complaining customers because she only has two employees.
Desperate for a wifi connection when traveling and went to this Burger King. How does this place stay in business? When I walked in the first thing I noticed was splattered and dried milkshake on the wall. I ordered a salad and asked for ranch. They gave me a solo cup of very watered down ranch dressing. I noticed bubbles all over the top of the dressing...I'm glad I smelled it before pouring because it had gone sour. When I sat down and started using my computer, there was an ant on the table. I killed it and assumed it was a fluke. Within minutes was another, then another. I saw over a dozen at once, then looked at the side of the table and saw several more in a line carrying sugar granules. When I reported to manager, he replied "huh." Last, the entire reason I went there, the wifi, went out. Do not go to this place.
