    Is alligator meat any good? I’d think it would be tough and gamey. :?

    It’s actually really fishy tasting. I had it at one of the downtown Columbus food festivals (taste of Columbus or the international festival or something) and it was battered & fried and really not good at all.

    Maybe prepared in other ways (or other settings) it might be better…
