Restaurants at Crossroads Plaza
 
I would love to have a list of restaurants at Crossroads Plaza at Lake Buena Vista. Can anyone help me out, please? (I did a search online, but only got bits & pieces of information.) :surfweb:

Thank you very much!

About a minute up the road there's also a Chili's,Joe's Crab Shack,Olive Garden,Giordanos pizza and a Qdoba just off the top of my head,there's probably others.Of the ones in the Crossroads shopping center Sweet Tomatoes is pretty popular, it's a salad buffet place with soups,pastas,pizza and bakery items.Pizzeria Uno is also another favorite but Giordano's just up the road is also a Chicago style pizza place that's also excellent.With both being deep dish pizzas they take a while but I think Uno has created a way to cook the pizzas a bit faster.On the south side of Crossroads on the other side of I-4 about 2 minutes south of Crossroads there's also several other restaurants like Bahama Breeze,Golden Corral and others.

Sweet Tomatoes--arguably the most unique, a giant salad bar with various soups, pastas, potatoes, desserts. Quite good, and reasonably priced.

Johnnie's Hideaway--pricey but well-regarded.

Chevys--decent Mexican food (keep in mind, I'm from the eastern seaboard, so my standards are low); I've found service to be spotty tho.

Flippers--my favorite chain pizza in Orlando.

Fuddruckers--good burgers, very casual.

TGI Fridays--a chain outlet, of course, but the best of its kind. If you don't have kids, sit at the bar. Best bartenders in the area, friendly and efficient. And a good chance you'll sit next to a cast member who can give you inside tips.

Sweet Tomatoes is very unique. My entire family loved the place, and my boys are not soup/salad fans.

Go to their website and join their gropu for free. They will send awesome coupons via e-mail.

We love Flippers pizza and pasta and go everytime we get down to Orlando. Don't go to Fudruckers. I've been there twice and both times it was awful.

I have to agree. We like Red Robin and Fudruckers appeared to be the same type (and price) of fancy burger. Yucch! It wasn't even close in two separate tries. Never again. I can only hope Red Robin decides to come to Orlando soon for a good gourmet burger from a chain.

While you're in the area go one more light down and hit Giordano's for the BEST pizza. It is a must for us every trip. There are another 10-15 restaurants including Steak & Shake (MUCH better burger than Fudruckers and 1/4 the price!) in that area. You will not go hungry.

1 mile the other way is Carrabaras and Panera Bread- Oh Bahama Breeze, Chik-Fil-A and a Drive Through Starbucks.

Another vote for Giordano's, best pizza I have ever had. The stuffed pizza is awesome!
