Planning a trip to the wonderful surf town that is Cocoa Beach? I’m here to help you find the best places to eat from a non-local/local perspective…? Although I do not live in Cocoa Beach my husband was born and raised there. They still have a house there that we visit about once a month or so to get away. So although I myself have never lived in Cocoa Beach, I get all my suggestions from born and raised locals and I try them for myself when I visit.

This is list is in no particular order.
Great beer, Great specials, Great atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Located just East of the 520 Causeway, Long Doggers is definitely our go-to spot for an after the beach dinner or even lunch on a lazy day.
Whenever we are in the mood for wings, We always give Frankie’s a call. Their wings are the best we’ve had yet and Their delivery speed is impressively fast.
If you’re looking for some pizza, Papa Vito is your dude. Another spot for fast delivery and consistent quality food. They’re one of the few places that are open late in the area too. (Technically located in Cape Canaveral)
We’ve been going to this place since the soft opening and it has grown into quite a great place to eat over the years. An American sports bar-restaurant that serves up some great food and great drink prices. They are another late-night spot in the area right across the street from the Cocoa Beach Pier.
Okay let me start by acknowledging that Da Kine Diegos is not in Cocoa Beach, It’s in Satellite Beach (about a 20 minute drive South). BUT LET ME TELL YOU! Da Kine Diegos is worth the drive. This is my favorite GO-TO spot that I must eat at least once per trip. They have amazing burritos, bowls and my personal favorite, the “Gringo Star”. If you’re able to get there while on your trip, do whatever you can to make it happen. You will thank me later.
