I'll give a vote for Corleons on I-Drive near the Mercado. Their steak is great, their grilled asparagus and I have never had better Creme Brulee.

We ate breakfast at the hotel the first day last year for about $30.00 and I was still hungry. On the way to the parks, we saw a Bonanza All You Can Eat Breakfast Buffet for $2.99 on I-Drive. We checked it out the next morning and it was fabulous! There was alot of choices, the food was super, and it was all you can eat. We ate there every morning after that. We filled up on breakfast and left in the late afternoon for dinner somewhere else. Watch for the buffets! This one was wonderful and I have never seen cheaper prices! I am hoping it is still there because I will look again this year for it.

Although it gets mixed reviews, we LOVED Bahama Breeze (It didn't hurt that we had a $50 GC);
We HATED Joe's Crab Shack (even WITH a $50 GC)!

Mine are all over the Orlando area since I am a local.

For chain resturants:

Perkins - love the bread bowl salads
Orlando Ale House
Panera Bread - great soups, salads, and sandwiches


Pannullos - but it is up in Winter Park
O-Boys Bar-B-Q - it is the best, but again it is in WP
Boston Fish House - again in WP
The Melting Pot - located on Sand Lake
Amalfis - great Italian over in NE Orlando area
La Forcetta's - in Kissimmee (on S. John Young) Italian
Tarantino's - in Kissimmee - another Italian place

We have only eaten at a few:
Liked: Perkins at the Crossroads. Good regular food at a good price, really nice people working there. Chevy's at the Crossroads. Incredible mexican food, even the chicken tenders for the kids were good. Service was the best. Did I say I loved the food?

Yuck: Jungle Jims at the Crossroads. Expensive horrid food. Service was ok, nice waiter. Did I say the food was horrid? Bleah!
That's it!

:D What a good idea for a thread.

Favorites: Giordano's. Great food and great prices. I would go there again. Red Lobster at Crossroads. Very good food and sevice. I would go there again.

Okay: Jungle Jim's. I thought it was just okay, nothing special.

Luckily, we didn't have any really bad eating experiences.

Next trip I would love to try steak n' shake and sonic.

SONNY76 - Can you please give more information on the location of the "all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet"? Was it a BONANZA restaurant, that also offered breakast as well as dinner buffet? What was it near? I did a search for all area restaurants and came up blank. This sounds great for our next trip, but we don't want to drive up and down I Dr until we find it!

We loved TONY ROMA'S on our last trip. (we ate there twice!) and we will definitely be eating there next weekend! Also Bennigans has always been good. Pizzareia Uno, Macaroni Grill, and even Red Lobster. Bennigans has to be the best as far as reasonable prices, and I think Tony Roma's follow that by a close second.

Lightbulb this happened to US also....

We woke up at HRH went to brkfst. at the hotel rest. $15.95 a-peice for the buffet. when i got the bill for 4 of us i died, it's just eggs and no characters, so i complained and they told me to take my car and make a left at the front of the hotel univ. blvd. and were they right.....we found a Bonanza (don't worry they are on every corner) for $2.99 and i paid $15.00 for all 4 of us, same food eggs and bacon..........loved it and we went back for dinner i think it's about $6.99 .....also try Golden Corral (also in every strip mall) on Fri. they have a steak on the buffet for $7.99. i also saw alot of sizzler's though i heard they might not be as clean...oh..also attached to the Bonanza was a cheap souveneir shop, i mean cheap they will give you a coupon for the store, we saw gifts, mugs, and shirts in the parks for 3x's as much and they were here..i think it was a bargain world...

Our favorite off site places are:

1. Bahama Breeze-we go there every trip and LOVE the place.
2. Romano's Macaroni Grill-we just discovered it a few trips ago and we're looking forward to dining there again in April.
3. We always stop at a Cracker Barrel on our trip to WDW. We've driven down 12 of the 14 times we've been there.

We haven't been to the Crab House in many years but we used to like that, too.
