Uncle Rico's Angry Uncle square Pie with Mikes Hot honey drizzle

Yelp is out with a new list. They rated the Top 100 Florida Restaurants of 2023 and Southwest Florida has 3 on the list.  All in all, Fort Myers, Naples, and Fort Myers Beach made the list. It’s actually pretty incredible since the Fort Myers beach restaurant that made the list just recently reopened since Hurricane Ian. It’s a nice nod to them on the amazing progress they made in getting things up and running again.

The Yelp list  ” is based on our community’s ratings and reviews.”  So after someone eats at one of these establishments, they feel strongly enough about the experience to go online and express that. We’ll get to the Top 10 of Florida in a bit, let’s see where our local places stack up against the rest of the state in Yelp’s list of Top 100 Florida Restaurants.

At number 57 is Uncle Rico’s Pizza in Fort Myers. You can find them at 2960 Cleveland Avenue, just south of Lee Memorial. Yelp reviewers cannot stop raving about this place. More than one person referred to their pie as “perfect”. That’s what I want in a pizza place. Pepperoni knots, house special pizzas, and Jamaican Beef Patties are go-tos. According to their Insta, they reopen on Friday. Expect a crowd.
