      - Jungle Jim's in the Crossroads Shopping Center - great food and atmosphere - very close to the Radisson.
      - I agree with Raboi about Giordanos on W. Irlo Bronson (US 192) - a short drive west down I-4, then west on US-192
      - Ghiaradelli Soda Fountain for dessert @ Downtown Disney

      Have a great time !

        Jungle Jim's is out of business. It's a Fuddruckers now.

        I second SJ's Lee & Rick's Oyster Bar recommendation. Also get away from Disney and come see the real local flavor of Orlando. Winter Park & Thornton Park are both home to some really great destinations. Luma, Dexters, Wine Room, Graze, Beacon, and many more.

          Padrino's for great Cuban.
          Hot Dog Heaven (yes, Chicago beef)
          Lee & Rick's Oyster Bar
          Tabla Indian
          Other suggestions on my site.

            We are mostly partial to more exotic foods. Restaurants that we hit and really like:

            1. Lac Vit in Little Vietnam in downtown Orlando. Huge portions.
            2. Asia Bagus Indonesian. Small cool little place with great flavor.

            3. Passage to India. Look for coupons in local coupon books.
            4. Giordanos for a deep dish pizza.
