Dixie Crossroads! :)

A previous poster was asking @ seafood restaurants. I will gladly recommend "Dixie Crossroads" in Titusville. They have a website, with the menu & prices. The family that owns this restaurant invented a splitter for rock shrimp, a type of hard-shell shrimp. (Tastes reaaally good...yummmmm.)Titusville is over near the Cape(as in shuttle, as in NASA, etc....*that* Cape!)
Take a break from WDW/Orlando, maybe go over to Daytona, tour NASA, investigate the Wildlife Sanctuary that is all around the NASA facilities, have some good seafood eats...

Happy eating, everyone ,
agnes!

Anyone know of a New York style pizza place?

We don't usually stay off-site, but this time will be for a week and we'd love to find a New York/Boston style pizza place to have dinner one evening.

Thanks for your help!

Another vote for TuTu Tango here! Hubby and I make it a point to go there every single time we are in Florida. Good food, atmosphere, enough going on to keep the kids entertained!

My favorite breakfast I've had in orlando is pretty far away from the attractions, but if you make it to Downtown Orlando, there's a place called the Breakfast Club of Orlando. Very good food. I'm pretty sure it's on Pine St, but not 100% sure.

Not breakfast food, but I'm also a fan of the $3.99 pizza buffet at CiCi's

I've eaten at the Ale House (corner of SR-535 (Apopka Vineland Rd) and CR-535 (Palm Pkwy / Turkey Lake Rd)) and have enjoyed it.

Has anyone mentioned Charley's Steakhouse?
There are several in the Orlando area now. They have a website, I don't remember it off-hand.
The one we go to is right at the junction of Rt. 192 and I-4 (on 192)
The steaks are aged to perfection and to-die-for! Tender, juicy and flavorful. They are cooked over an open flame of specialty woods including citrus wood. Just the aroma in the parking lot will get your mouth watering! Other items we have ordered and been very pleased with include lamb chops and shrimp.
It is on our "don't miss" list everytime we are in the area.

Oh, YUCH!

We're from Jersey (born and raised- Cherry Hill area actually) but DH rips the back off, cleans them well under cold running water and THEN we cook them, in Old Bay of course. I enjoy eating them much better without the "MUSTARD" Throw some newspaper on the table, grab some cold beer and drawn butter and you're set! Oooh, my mouth is watering!

A Dixie Crossroads is planned to open in August, at Festival Bay, next to the Bass Pro Shop.

More information please!!!

I keep files on places I want to visit someday and Dixie Crossings has long been on my list and since we have already made many trips over to Titusville, alas before I heard of DC we are not likely to make the trip just to eat a meal.

Might you give me directions to this new one from a DW point of view?

Thank you so very much.

Lobster Tail

I can't believe so many people seem to love these mediocre chain restaurants. Some of the upscale ones like Houstons or Bahama Breeze are good, but most just stink. Virtually all TGIs, Applebees, etc.. don't even use fresh chicken, they use that frozen junk with the solution injected. Nothing is more gross than chicken meat that has no grain to it.

But... A great place my wife and I also eat at while in Orlando is FISHBONES. It is at the intersection of Sand Lake and International Drive.

We get their lobster tail, it is 2 - 3 pounds (They charge you by the pound), but more than enough for 2 people to share. It is kinda pricey, usually about $80 - 90 or so for the tail. We just order an extra salad and an appetizer and we are good to go. Usually runs about $130 - 140 w/tip.

If you like Cuban, I highly recommend Numero Uno. It's not close to WDW, but it is worth it.
