College Park/Orlando Mexican

I'm a Paco's fan.. Fairbanks west of 17-92 on the north side.. can't recall the street intersection

also does paxias use the chili gravy on their enchilladas and burritos? i dont like the red sauces, and its hard to find a good tex mex place with good chili gravy..

Ravenous Pig Part 2

My first time to TRP was last Wednesday, I have to say I was blown away. My date and I started off with the infamous gruyere biscuits, then I found out she's allergic to eggs, followed by the Florida Pompano (me) and the Steak & Frietz (her). WOW.
When I visit Manhattan I usually frequent The Spotted Pig which is the place TRP was inspired by and I have to say that TRP is spot on (no pun intended).

Date TONIGHT!! Italian near downtown Orlando??

I have a date tonight and I'm looking for a decent Italian place in or around downtown that won't break the wallet. I was thinking Gargi's or Pescatore. Any other thoughts?

Best sushi in Orlando?

My favorite is Sushi Hatsu downtown.. the lunch specials are amazing.. 2 rolls, soup, salad, and some other thing (that i never eat) for $5-8 depending on the rolls you pick.. their dressing for the salad is AMAZING

Shot glass desserts

The ones that are on the tray are not the ones you are served (at least at PF Changs). I get them when I go to PF Changs and love them. They fix my sweet craving after a meal and the carrot cake and great wall shots are amazing.. mmmm

Irish Pub, Melbourne

I will second the brew at C&J's.. their brew has been rated very highly in contest and festivels. I even bought a beers of the world book with taste tests and ratings and a couple of their brews were in there, all with 3-4 stars (5 being the max) and that book didnt give out to many 4 stars

Looking for something good in GainesviIlle

Best burger i have ever had in my life comes from g-ville.... its called "Macs drive thru" (nick named squishy burger by my friends and i)and it is sooooo amazing words cannot express it.. get a double with fries and a sweet tea.... damn im salavating so much right now... ONLY OPEN ON THE WEEKDAYS, closes around 5pm...

also try La Fiesta for some good mexican... if your a fan of hot foods get the chili burrito, with some milk to drink (you may need it),, im a huge connaisseur of tex mex chili gravy and theirs is amazing, with great salsa to boot

Fried Chicken in Orlando?

hmmm, when you mentioned quest this place popped into my head that i would drive by everyday but never tried.. im pretty sure its called mama nems and its on Kirkman road (metro west area).. ive been on their website to look around and it looks like some real good soulfood in a nice restaurant.. also there is a new blues place on Idrive called BB Kings which may be a gem for fried chicken

UCF - Orlando Threads?

Youll find really good lunch specials in this area..
-Fusion - located in the plaza on university and alafaya on the northside (japanese food+sushi)

-El cerro - stand alone building right on the corner of university and alafaya northside, mexican

-Pepinos - drive north on alafaya past university, past mccholouch (SP?) and past couple lights and on the right (right after an intersection with a light) is pepinos, i dunno about other hounds but i enjoy their lunch buffer very much, pretty good italian food

-Duffys - drive west on university, till you get to dean, make a u turn at dean and university and the strip mall on your right has duffys in it.. really good subs, but theyre cheesesteaks are awesome, i suggest the BBQ cheesesteak.

-Waterford lakes - drive south on alafaya past 50 and you wont be able to miss the massive outside shop area on both sides of you filled with a ton of chains and other eats..

thats a couple of the top of my head

GYROS in Orlando area???

Ever since my trip to Greece ive been dying for an amazing gyro.. it seems hard to find one over here.. ive had one at "House of Kabab" on Fairbanks in winter park which was sub-par, it didnt have enough meat and the $8.00 pricetag didnt feel worthy either (just the gyro!) ...

any good recomendations?
