Black Owned Foodie Tour: Jacksonville, FL

Black Owned Foodie Tour: Jacksonville, FL

A city with over 70 black-owned restaurants and rooted African American history is Jacksonville, Florida. This river city is known for the black heritage that is displayed throughout the entire coast. From the The Ritz Theater & Museum that puts our history on display to the HBCU Edward Waters College that is home for many black students, Jacksonville is one of the most unique cities in the South. 



Since Jacksonville is packed with southern, African American heritage,  we can only expect Southern traditions and Southern cuisine to be some of the highlights  of this coastal city.  Jacksonville locals, and tourists,  have been said to enjoy the food choices in Jacksonville because of the fresh ingredients and the ancestral teachings that have been passed down from generation to generation. Whether it’s the classical southern dishes, natural coastal cookery, and or secret family recipes, African American food is thriving in the city of Jacksonville. 

Due to the success many Black-Owned restaurants have seen in the South, it is only right that we showcase a few that are located in the bold city of the South; Jacksonville, Florida.
