    Ponderosa: Superb value for the family

    This restaurant was unreal....you pay for your entree, which can be something like barbecue chicken or steak (loads of choices) and then you can help yourself to an enormous buffet, which contains a phenomenal chioce of food. The kids just paid for the buffet, which was something ridiculous like 5 dollars, and that was it. There were even desserts, cookies, and cakes etc and you could make your own ice cream sundaes from an ice cream machine, which the kids really enjoyed! Absolutely amazing value, and apparently you can return to the buffet as often as your stomach will permit!! The service was excellent and we had a really great meal! Highly recommended!

    Favorite Dish: I had a lovely barbeque chicken, with loads of stuff from the buffet eg. salads, potatoes etc all of which was good! Then I had had ice cream and cookies!

    Well, this restaurant totally blew me away. From what I can gather it is a chain of steakhouses, but in the morning they serve a fantastic all you can eat breakfast for $3.99. Yes you read that right...$3.99!
    From porridge, to pancakes, to maple toast, to scrambled eggs, to fresh fruit. It's all here!
    Staff are very welcoming and friendly and will make sure your drink is topped up and your toast is hot! You could easily stay 2 weeks in Orlando and have a different breakfast each morning with the choice they have here.

    Favorite Dish: Pancakes and blueberry syrup are good, and so is the scrambled eggs and home fries :-)

    ponderosa: Dont miss this one

    Couldn't belive this place this is the only time I have been abroad (Normally been to Spain, Turkey,etc) That I have actually eaten breakfast, it has everything you could want like hot, cold meats, salad, cereals, you really need to find one of these, and check this out you can eat breakfast, dinner and tea early in the morning freaky I really got used to this. Need a few of them over here i think.

    Favorite Dish: potato salad you could die for, bacon abit scary because they really i mean really cook it and then crumble it up. No stress though so much else to choose from.

    ponderosa: Simply the best deal in town

    This is the place to go if your hotel stay doesn't include free breakfast. Listen cheapskaters, at 3.99 you can't go wrong. Kids 5 and younger eat free. I even feel my pockets with muffins and crackers before leaving the door. This is your first step toward savings.

    Favorite Dish: Lots and lots of eggs, bread, muffins, hash browns, sausages
