We like The Cheesecake Factory, Longhorns, Outback, Olive Garden, TGIs (cheap!), Perkins and cannot beat Panda Express for fast food!

We moved to the US about a year ago and hands down my favourite place is the Cheesecake Factory. It can take an hour just to get through their menu!

Also enjoy Outback (we prefer this to Longhorn), PF Chang's, Ruby Tuesday's, Chipotle, Panera Bread (breakfast/lunch), Golden Corral and IHOP.

We love Denny's, great for 1st night and breakfasts.
Cheesecake Factory is amazing but a little pricey compared to other places but nice for a special dinner etc.
Bahama breeze is a fave too, along with chilis and Outback Steakhouse.
As 2 adults we rarely eat table service in disney (we ve only done crystal palace and chef mickeys) as we stay offsite, we much prefer to eat outside as it's such good value for us.
Only places we ve not had great meals is tgi Fridays and Pizza Hut, we actually think they re nicer in the uk! Apart from the price difference!
it all started with a mouse!

We eat one off property meal. Boston Lobster Feast. My child hates seafood. So much so that she won't eat any food that has been on a buffet with seafood. They always make a great pretense of bringing her a "special plate" of food that has never been near any seafood. So far she believes it.

we like ponderosa for breakfast, it's a HUGE buffet, we find we don't have to eat till tea te after filling up there. also a huge vote for Logan's roadhouse. it's meatloaf is the best thing ever, and as for the cheesecake... I dream of it! last time we went I was 33 weeks pregnancy and we agreed if the baby came in America and was a boy we'd call him Logan Orlando! lol he came when I got home and got the name Theo instead.

I'm looking forward to eating offsite again in may, we have decided to book 5 nights at cabana bay universal as got an amazing deal,after our disney cruise, just so we could leisurely do universal and shopping while eating offsite before our 12nights at SSR
Have not eating offsite part from bubba gumps in ages!!
I actually am starting to miss all the I drive and other offsite restaurants since spending the last 5 trips purely staying on disney property.

We love to have buffet breakfast in Sizzler, plus when you do they give you a voucher to use when you come back for your evening meal.
Really great value and their buffet is much better than Ponderosa. Sets you up for a day in the parks and you avoid all the lunchtime queues for food!
