Eating Out Whilst In Florida
Eating out in Florida is something of an experience, whether you decide on the all time favourites like KFC, the burger restaurants like Burger King or go for the more formal dining experience. There is something to suit all tastes.
Some of the more popular restaurants are the “all you can eat“ ones. They are such good value and have a range of foods to suit everybody, especially if you have kids as most of these say that kids eat free! They are a good help to the budget and allows you more spending money for other things! One of my favourites is The Golden Coral - if you have one of their breakfasts, it will set you up for the day. There are lots similar to this like Ponderosa and Sizzlers (here they boast of having the largest salad bar, with over 100 different items), Western Steer, Shoneys and many, many others.
As for proper restaurants there is Bennigans (their Death By Chocolate is certainly to die for), Perkins, Denny’s or The Outback Steakhouses by the dozen. It makes you wonder if that’s all the American think us Brits do all day!
For an excellent steak I love the “Butchers shop' ! Anyone who has been there will tell you that they didn’t realise steaks came that big! ! For Lobster you can’t beat the Red Lobster. My hubbie always has a steak with his! The lists just go on and on. If you have a sweet tooth The Cheesecake factory in the Mall of Millennia takes some beating and for a quick snack I love Johnny Rockets. Race Rock is good for something a little different.
A great one to try also is the Cracker barrel, here they combine a restaurant with a shop. The gifts are wonderful - I stocked up with several Christmas presents from here. You order your table and then wander round the shop while you are waiting, or if some of the men are fed up with shopping there are rocking chairs out the front porch where you can just sit and watch the world go by until they call you for your meal.
Then there are the Dinner shows, all well worth a visit. The Pirates dinner show is great if you have any children with you as they involve them in the show - a great laugh. The food is average but the entertainment is very good. Dolly Parton's Dixie stampede is the latest edition to the dinner shows and was really well worth seeing. The music and entertainment is excellent and makes a nice evening out especially if you like horses. This goes for the Arabian Nights show too a must for all the horse lovers. There is also a Murder Mystery evening called Capone's, that’s my next one to try.
