Good Eats near Stanhome Way, Orlando

flourgirl Mar 20, 2012 02:30 PM

My DH is currently in Orlando attending a job training course & is in desperate need of some recs near Stanhome Way. I don't know anything about the area but I think he's mostly looking for places he can go during the dinner hour of his class where he can get some tasty food fairly quickly that's not super expensive. He's open to most cuisines. Any help would be really appreciated.

    According to Google Maps, that really isn't a great area to wander around if he's unfamiliar with his surroundings. Where is he staying? He may be better off bringing something with him to the class or going out somewhere afterwards. He's close to the College Park neighborhood and downtown Orlando, with lots of options, but nothing in the immediate area.

    EDIT: If he takes Stanhome to Princeton and goes east, that's where College Park is.

      Thx for the heads up & I'll let him know what you said. Unfortunately his class runs until midnite every nite. It sounds like that College Park neighborhood is too far to drive for dinner hour?

        Most of the College Park restaurants are funky, local little sit-down places. I'm afraid I don't know the area very well, but I'm sure he could drive there in time to get a fast food or fast casual meal while on break. I'm not entirely sure what's nearby, though.

          College Park is literally five minutes away from Stanhome way

            Thanks, he figured that out & ate most of his meals there. He's home now, though. :)
