Bob Mervine, Anything new and good in the Deltona, DeLand,Orange City Area ??

  • 4

Once again I'm headed from NYC to my son in Deltona for thanksgiving and a
birthday celebration. Last year you indicated that this area was a wasteland
insofar as real good restaurants are concerned. Has anything changed since then ?

Thanks in advance.

Larry

  1. Nothing major that I am aware of, but perhaps those closer to the action might have some advice.

    1. That's a bit west for me, but my co-worker lives in Orange City and has recommended Scorpio's in Deltona. http://scorpiositalianeatery.com/inde... (Caveat: I think his wife's friends with the owner. But other West Volusians have mentioned it to me too.

      )

      If you search this board for DeLand there are several recent threads that name a bunch of places there.

      This area seems not so much a "wasteland" as a mostly undiscovered place. DeLand especially, which has a pretty cute little downtown, might be your best bet for higher-end dining. Most county seats also tend to have amazing breakfast places close to the courthouse, where all the lawyers and judges eat. ;-)

      But there being a large Hispanic population in Deltona, I'm thinking there might be some little-known Puerto Rican restaurants tucked away in there as well.

      If you find a great place, or even something to avoid, please let us know! :-)

      1. Thanks for your posts.
        I certainly will check out Scorpios and report back as well as anyplace
        else I can discover.

        Does anyone else know of worthwhile places in this area?

        1. Covvert Ops - Bob:

          Just had a call from my other son who is flying in from SF to join us.

          Hr'd like to know if there are any good Chinese and/or Crabhouse in the area?

          If not, where are the nearest ones?
