We had great food at IHOP, Perkins, Cracker Barrel, and OK food at Ponderosa (very good value) and Jungle Jims (some people have complained about slow service but it was fine when we were there).

Our WORST meal was Pizzaeria Uno at Crossroads - very slow service (25 minutes wait) for small mediocre pizzas - think Goodfellas frozen pizzas reheated poorly

DON PABLOS!! DON PABLOS!! DON PABLOS!!!

I've read thru the entire 13 pages of this thread and only seen Don Pablos mentioned twice, both times by Pigsty333.

It must be a best kept secret. It is located on I-Drive and is great Mexican food at fantastic prices!! We have eaten here on our last 3 trips, sometimes twice.

They have a Queso sampler for $2.99 or $3.99 (I can't remember) that has 4 different bowls of queso. We have alot of fun with that as a starter. The kids love their alphabet tater tots on the kids menu. They have all the standard Mexican fare and everything we have had so far has been delicious. 5 trips here with 5-8 people each trip and eveyone loves it- no complaints! Always excellent service. Now there is a recommendation.

TRY DON PABLOS!!!!!

We love Bahama Breeze. Their Key Lime Pie is amazing

We are definitely going to try Sweet Tomatoes this year as we are staying close by and have heard so many good things about it

another fan of Bahama Breeze here although only been to the one in I Drive. The whole atmosphere whilst waiting for the pager to light up is so relaxing and the ceasar salad -yum!

Anyone else like the pizza at Chuckie Cheese?? having two kids we go there every visit to collect a trillion tokens which can be swapped for a couple of bits of plastic etc ! LOL

Personally I haven't had a breakfast that can match that at the Wyndham on I Drive. Not the cheapest but definitely a cut above the mass produced all you can eats everywhere else in the area.

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.

I pretty much agree with you about blah chains. My personal peeve is marginal veggies, and too many fries. Additionally, we have like nearly every chain in my area, so I see little point in going to even the best ones when I'm in Orlando.
Having said that, after reading your comments, I AM now more interested in checking out the new FISHBONES in our area when it opens. I don't know about having the lobster tail though...

I am an Orlando native. And Texas de Brazil is fabulous. We try all the restaurants around the "touristy" area and most are horrible. I tend to just stick to disney ones consdering I live here, am friends with a lot of head chefs and know which ones to avoid. Texas de Brazil is my favorite off property place. It's about $40 a person if you want the meat---and you do! Otherwise it's $30 just for the all you can eat salad bar which is unlike any salad bar you've ever had. It's all upscale ingredients and you could feast off of just it if the meat wasn't so good. Once you are ready, you flip a card over at your table and instantly are barraged by men bearing skewers of chicken, pork, ribs, lamb, beef (about 3 kinds), sausage and they just keep bringing you more until you flip that card back over---I highly recommend it.

Looking for best pizza

Several months ago someone posted a "best pizza" on this board, and I recognized the restaurant as being one my husband and I went to in the Chicago area in 1998. It was awesome, and I can't remember the name, nor can I find the post on this site

I believe it was located on Irlo Bronson, but I could be wrong. I remember the floor tile as being a black and white checkered pattern, and they had a great thin crust pizza.

I know I'm being so very vague, but any input would be so very helpful as we hope to be back for a vacation in October.

Thanks,
Elaine
Castle Rock, Co

Is it Giordano's? http://www.giordanos.com/

We ordered their stuffed pizza Thurs. night and it was excellent. I was surprised how crowded the place was for a Thursday night.

My daughter is always hollering for "extra cheese". I think she finally met her match . It was LOADED with about 3 inches of cheese.
