Question 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.)

Thank you very much!

Shelli

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.

Sweet Tomatoes! Their food is the best if you like fresh salad, soup and muffins
