he smells of a delectable grilled meal can be a perfect end to a vacation day!

I LOVE ORLANDO

Spring 2022

Black Angus Steakhouse has been serving the best steaks in town for over 40 years. They believe it is because their steaks are always aged at least 21 days, they offer Certified Angus® or U.S.D.A. Prime and most importantly all the steaks are grilled. Grilling is the cleanest and leanest cooking process. Fat drips away from the food as it cooks and there's no extra calories from batters, heavy sauces or excess oils. Grilling locks in the flavor and gives the steak a texture that’s unforgettable.

54

Their Grill Masters are experts at getting the steaks cooked just right. Steaks are taken off the grill when they’re about 5 degrees below the target temperature. Then, they let the steak sit. The steak’s temperature will rise a few more degrees on the plate, and another important thing will happen – the juices will redistribute throughout the meat. This will result in the most succulent steak you’ve ever tasted! Hands down, the best part of a grill-out are the unlimited options, and at Golden Corral the options are unlimited. Enjoy a wide range of home-style favorites like grilled steaks, tender chicken, fresh fish and sides as far as the eye can see. If you’re looking for a crowd favorite, check out the tender, juicy U.S.D.A. signature sirloin steaks, which are cooked to order every night of the week. And the best part is you can go back for seconds. Enjoy a perfectly grilled steak, just how you like it, along with all the salads, sides and buffet favorites you love at Golden Corral. Just remember to save room for dessert!

Texas Roadhouse is known for Hand-Cut Steaks, Fall-Off-The-Bone-Ribs, MadeFrom-Scratch Sides, and Fresh-Baked Bread. The company prides itself on Legendary Food and Legendary Service. Texas Roadhouse first opened its doors in 1993, and has since grown to more than 600 restaurants in 49 states and ten foreign countries.

There are 40 locations across the state of Florida. Each location is locally owned and operated by a Managing Partner. Supporting the local community is important to the restaurant company.
