Hi All -- producers are looking for orlando (or nearby) diners, drive-ins and dive suggestions. I'll be sending them a list over the weekend.
If you have any favorite places you think should be considered, list them here. They're looking for great food, unusual specials, down and dirty and crazy decor, and best kept secrets. Catering trucks, air bus, establishments, etc. Anything goes.
Thanks in advance!
Please consider the Market Street Cafe in Celebration. It is an old fashioned diner with home cooking. http://celebrationtowncenter.com/dini...

Market Street Cafe
701 Front St, Kissimmee, FL 34747
Jose's Real Cuban Food
8799 Cortez Road West
Bradenton, FL 34210
AMAZING authentic cuban food.
Mama Nem's Soul Food is SO much better than some of the places that are more famous.
I'd also say to drive along S OBT on a Friday night and check out all the food trucks.
I've never been to the Old School Coffee Shop in Christmas, but any place that's in a school bus and feeds cinnamon rolls to gators is good TV.
It's a bit out of the way, but Plant City's Grandpa Johnson's Barbecue has the best ribs I've ever tasted. Semi-funky atmosphere, but maybe not as extreme as DDD would like. Just amazing, amazing ribs.
