Award-winning Gumbo at Pompano Joe’s of Destin
A measure of any good seafood restaurant is its gumbo.
Pompano Joe’s is one of those places that continues to serve one of the best bowls of seafood gumbo in town. Â The menu proudly declares that the gumbo was crowned a champion at this year’s Sandestin Gumbo Festival. Pompano Joe’s won the veteran division this year and has also been a People’s Choice winner.
The Pompano Joe’s recipe is a perfect combination of seafood, sausage, roux, spices, and rice.Â
I think the atmosphere of Pompano Joe’s also adds to the experience as every table is beachside, and on our visit, the service was excellent. Follow your bowl of gumbo with a piece of homemade key lime pie, and you will enjoy a wonderful taste of Florida.
