Living the local life you develop a pretty good idea of which restaurants are primarily filled with locals, and which ones are for the tourists. Here a three restaurants to eat like a local!
Locals love it for the 11am-3pm lunch special. It includes 1 giant slice of Pizza, a choice of salad, and I drink for around $12. Even if it isn't lunch time you can't go wrong with their pizza. Don't forget to ask for a silver pan to decorate, and hang on their walls!
Pazzo has only been in Santa Rosa Beach for a couple of years now, but it has quickly become a go to spot for the locals. It's fancy but not to fancy, and the food is delicious! Located just five minutes from Gulf Place it makes it a great place for a family dinner after a long beach day!
Los Rancheros is the old faithful Mexican restaurant for the locals. Before a local football game, or after church on Sunday this place will be packed! They don't have a website or any photos online. All their business is word of mouth!
