What are you favourite places to eat offsite please. So far we have always eaten offsite, but always at the same places ie ponderosa, maccy d's, Denny's diner.
So where do you eat? Chinese, Indian, steakhouse etc and where. I'd like to broaden our horizons next trip as mostly we eat at the villa we rent.
Take a run over to Tampa one evening and go to Bern's Steakhouse, Mick.
There's one you won't soon forget! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
Tom (:macwave:... no, a little thicker please!)
Local places we've tried and enjoyed (for the most part)
Uno's (not for the pizza).
Ruth's Chris Steakhouse
Red Lobster (for a particular salad they have there with shrimp and crawfish)
Fish and Chips (little place up in Apopka on 436)
Yellow Dog Eats Cafe
Maryland Fried Chicken (the only one we have been to is on 50 in Winter Garden).
Olive Garden on I Drive (the largest one in the area)
Memories of India (in the Kmart shopping plaza on Turkey Lake Rd).
There is an Ethiopian restaurant on I drive but I don't remember the name of it. :sorry:
Sweet Tomatoes used to be decent but has fallen off.
Texas de Brasil (it's a churrascaria, an all you can eat meat place for the most part although they do have other things)
TooJays Deli on Dr. Phillips
We don't do MacDonald's or Burger King, or those sorts of places so I can't really comment on them.
I will not step foot in a Chik Filet or a Denny's. Ever. Not if I'm starving.
We have a couple of other little locally owned places, but they'd really be out of the way for you.
We avoid all buffets off property except for those in Gaylord Palms. They are nasty dangerous places (again, with the exception of Sweet Tomatoes but they are getting icky now too).
What sorts of food do you and your family like to eat, Mick?
Oh, the places in Celebration are decent enough too, but the only Antonio's we really like is the original in Maitland. The last time we ate at the other two (one in Celebration and one in Dr. Phillips) we were terribly disappointed so won't be returning there.
Ale Houses are decent. They've changed hands, but they are still ok. Basic food, but good enough and quite reasonably priced.
We've tried Mimi's, Chili's, Urban Flats, places like that. Meh. Nothing to go nuts over, ya' know?
For offsite breakfast we generally prefer Bob Evans. Very clean, very nice service and we do love those "oh so bad for you" biscuits and sausage gravy. :redface:
wow great post thanks Tink!!!
Oh! Forgot Bonefish. It's a restaurant along the lines of Longhorn (midrange prices) that specializes in fish. I go there for the Chilean seabass. They also do an incredibly good hamburger on a brioche roll!
another two are PERKINS OR GOLDEN CORRAL
Golden Corral is a buffet. The one nearest to downtown Disney is the only one I'd ever go into, but even then I honestly won't anymore. :sorry:
However, there is a Bahama Breeze next to it, and that place can be fun. It's part of the Darden chain of restaurants (Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Longhorn, Bahama Breeze...).
We like Bahama Breeze - had a very nice meal in the new one on the 192. :)
Texas de Brazil is great for meat lovers, even better if you sign up to the website just before you go and get coupons!
Didn't eat at Olive Garden this time but have always enjoyed it before.
We like Applebees and so many of our guests love it in there.
Thai Thani at Celebration
Bahama Breeze ( there's a new one at Rolling Oaks on the 192 along with a Olive Garden, Millers Ale House, Longhorn and Sweet Tomato's)
Kilwins at Celebration for an ice cream sundae
thanks everyone. ive not heard of a lot of these places so it will be nice to sample some food from some of them
that was the other one i couldnt remember was golden corral on lbv that wasnt bad at all
