Places to eat outside of WDW -Any tips?

Hi – We are going to WDW in Feb and on all of the more recent visits we have had the DDP (TS and CS). This year we are going to go with the flow a little more , we are getting a car and may venture out of WDW to eat a little more frequently.

Myself and my DW have 2 boys , 6 and 10 – I was hoping that I could get some tips on good , reasonable family places to eat (fast food or sit down). I am particularly interested in any good tips for Breakfast? Also are there coupons / deals available to eat out of WDW?

Thanks in advance

For breakfast you really can't beat the IHOP. There's something for everybody guaranteed and it's cheap and plentiful. They are everywhere so you'll find one nearby with no issues.

My favourite restaurants in the Orlando area are Longhorn steak house, red lobster, copper canyon grill and tony Roma's both on international drive. I rarely eat at Disney!

For Breakfast - IHOP or Perkins

Fast food for lunch we love Chick-Fil-A.

Dinner our regulars are:
Olive Garden
Outback
Longhorn Steakhouse
Cafe D'Antonio at Celebration

Want to try Orlando Ale House this time and Chillys as both get great reviews. Problem is there are too many restaurants and not enough days

Can't wait 9 days and I can be enjoying some yummy food

I love Outback, it has always been our Day 1 restaurant (even now that we've moved to Canada and have one in our city so eat there regularly!)
Their Bloomin' Onion is so good

We discovered Cracker Barrel on our last rip had breakfast and lunch and both were great.

Love Olive Garden and also Celebration Town Tavern.

It would be a crime to be in the US and not get a chipotle! Seriously amazing, fresh tasty Mexican food. Blows Taco Bell right out if the water!
