What are your favorite non-Disney Restaurants?

Central Florida is starting to have quite a foodie scene all on its own. What are your favorite restaurants when you're not eating on Disney property?

Since I never have a car at Disney, the only non-Disney restaurant I have been to is Chik-Fil-A at the airport.

laugh Me neither, but I needed to get some activity on this board. I think I usually eat at Qdoba at the airport.

Usually we just grab McDonalds or something, but we were at the airport 4 1/2 hours early after the cruise. We walked down to the "other" side of the airport and we were surprised to find a Macaroni Grill in the main terminal.

Off property, I really like the Bahama Breeze on 535 right out of Disney Springs. It's very fresh for a chain and has great atmosphere. I was offsite for a work trip in 2013. We ate at BB the first night and liked it so much that we went back every day of the trip!

We discovered Sweet Tomatoes ( thanks Robyn!) on our trip a few weeks ago. We were staying off property which we don't normally do, but we will be venturing off property from now on to eat there awesome

We also like Golden Corral!

I never leave the world so I really don't know any real restaurants in Orlando, but my favorite chains are Outback and Chipotle (hold the e-coli please).

I go a little more upscale. I like Fleming's Steakhouse and Morton's Steakhouse. (Hubby and I are carnivores. We love steakhouses.)

Oh yeah- I never think of Morton's as a chain but they have a lot of locations.
