Visit this Las Olas location on Tuesdays and chef Adam Dombrowski of Rocco's Tacos is doing double time. Armed with appetites, patrons line the lot to valet for the $14.95 all-you-can-eat day. The Fort Lauderdale location opened a year ago this month.

The crowds -- and owner Rocco Mangel's success -- warrant a fourth location that debuted in Palm Beach Gardens last week. Lunch service started yesterday.

Where does chef Dombrowski eat after hours and on his days off? His choices after the jump.

1. Tom Sawyer, Boca Raton
For fast service, a friendly clientele, and croissant French toast, Dombrowski is a regular at this Boca breakfast spot.

2. Sushi Yama, Boca Raton
Late-night sushi until 2 a.m. is a draw at this modest strip-mall sushi joint, where the drunk or daring might mix it up with sushi pizza.

3. Big City Tavern, Fort Lauderdale
"An awesome beer selection and phenomenal food" lure Dombrowski down the street for solid eats.

4. Bogarts, Boca Raton
"Dinner and a movie at the same time. What's not to like about that?" says the chef about the Boca concept by Burt Rapoport. The restaurateur is planning to open Burt & Max's with Dennis Max in the already closed location of Boca Burger Bar.

5. Dada, Delray Beach
"A twist on comfort-food classics and one of the most gorgeous outdoor dining experiences in South Florida" are the pluses of this Delray mainstay, says Dombrowski.
