Sizzling Tex Mex Feast + Rice Farm Tour and JAX Craft Beers | Jacksonville, Florida

During the summer of 2018, I teamed up with Visit Jacksonville to explore the sites and food scene of this underrated city in northeastern Florida. During my time in the city, I had an epic day visiting the state’s only rice farm, eating a sizzling Tex Mex feast, and trying craft beers at one of the best breweries in Jacksonville, Florida!

On my second morning in Jacksonville, I started off my day by heading to Fox Diner, an American-style diner that offers a delicious southern American breakfast. This breakfast was stellar! Everything was fire, but I loved the cheese grits and the biscuit with gravy. Add some Tabasco sauce to give your grits, eggs, and hash a kick of heat!

After breakfast, I drove 30 minutes north to Congaree and Penn, the only rice farm in the state of Florida. There, I tried some cider and went blackberry picking. It was one of my favorite authentic Floridan experiences ever!

For lunch, I headed to El Jefe Tex Mex and had a huge feast! From tamales to queso fondido and some other Tex Mex delicacies, this one of my favorite Tex Mex meals of all time! It was so good and had my mouth watering! This is one of the best Tex Mex meals you’ll have in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s a must when you visit!
