Disneyvillian..............
Thanks for info on Magic Mining co. Sure wish I had known all of this before we went! Unfortunately, our next trip to Orlando is a min of 5 yrs away.

Considering the fact that I grew up on 119 acre farm w/Angus cattle, DH & I raise and breed Angus and Hereford cattle & my brother is a member of ABS, and runs a 500 acre Registered Angus cattle farm, I know what good steak is. Praises for that! Because of that, I'm not much on places such as Ponderossa either.

I'm sure Cattleman's is an excellent place to eat but I wasn't hungry enough for their smallest steak I saw on the menu. Thanks for sharing the info. I appreciate your input.

Thanks for the reply sorry you are not travelling again for so long. ( we are going in October so I will be trying JT's Prime time but will probably be eating in Mining Co quite a bit.

anyone tried JT's Prime time west on 192?

We stayed in a villa on the 27 and passed this restaurant every day. My dad wanted to try it but he was always outvoted for Mining Co LOL. This year I have promised him )

Is this property on Irlo Bronson Dr? If so there are alot of choices. Cracker Barrel is there I know--always a great meal at Cracker Barrel!! Thinking there is a Ponderosa there too but not sure. If on Irlo Bronson there's also a Krispy Kreme too.

Le Peep is a wonderful breakfast/lunch place off of Conroy Road near Universal Studios.

I have posted a review on this board. There is a restaurant.com certificate available for this property. With the certificate, it was a fabulous meal at a great price.

My favorite breakfast restaurant is the Golden Corral for the breakfast buffet. Not only do they have the yummy breads and baked goods but it's the only buffet that I could find that included unlimited OJ with the price. For Seafood I love Crabby Bills on 192

This is a great post

I am heading back to Orlando in March and I am taking lots of notes on places to dine. Sweet Tomatoes, Seasons 52 and Magic Mining Co sound like great choices. Yum!

Here are our favorites

A must on every trip, usually twice is Chevys in the Crossroads. I love Mexican food and this place is awesome. Service has always been wonderful as well as the food.

Bahama Breezes is another one of my favorites but not my sons. He is not a picky eater but finds the menu here a little to different for his tastes.

Worst by far Jungle Jims......dirty, dirty ....did I say dirty...ewwww! Bad service and so so food. Although I did not eat much do to the cleanliness of the place.

Oh gosh I am sure there are many more favorite meals as I love to eat. But Chevys take the prize in our book!

I have to agree with the vote for Emeril's. It's the only consistently good and quality dining experience we've had in Orlando.

We do usually stop at Perkin's because we don't have them in our neck of the woods anymore and DH loves their pancakes but we find the rest of the chain restaurants to be very mediocre and expensive for the quality of service & food. We've tried Rainforest, Joe's Crab Shack, Olive Garden, etc. either at home or in our travels and found none worth raving about.

Anyone have any good tips on local places that aren't ho-hum chain food fare?

Can anyone tell me where the closest Bonanza is to Disney because that breakfast buffet sounds perfect for us on one of those days that we plan to go ventue offsite.

This from the Ponderosa/Bonanza website should help. Only Ponderosa is in FL though, not Bonanza. (In fact, I didn't know that there still were Bonanzas anywhere in the US!)

Bucca DiBeppo at the Florida Mall is great. Served Family style, large portions.

Ming Court on I-Drive. Best Chinese food experience we have had since we moved to Florida - howerver, very expensive.

CiCi's is okay - my son loves it, I particularly don't care for it.

Charley's steak house is great and your dinner is free on your birthday.

Macaroni Grill is very nice, we love the make your own pasta dish.

Don Pablo's is another one we like for Mexican food.
