Another New Restaurant Opens at CityWalk

A lot of hot dogs are consumed over the July 4th weekend, and the Hot Dog Hall of Fame couldn’t have opened at a better time. This new restaurant within Universal Orlando’s CityWalk is one of many that have opened this year. As posted previously, there are several new restaurants replacing culinary concepts to help revitalize this entertainment complex.

Hot dogs are one of America’s most popular foods. In fact, many of us glue ourselves to the television every year to watch the hot dog eating contest which takes place over the holiday weekend. While I love a good hot dog, it pains me to see these contestants stuff one after another into their mouths. It’s just so hard to stop watching!

The Hot Dog Hall of Fame features stadium-style seating. These seats come from stadiums all over the United States. There is also artificial turf and bleachers to make you feel as if you are in the stadium. The hots dogs also come from some of our nation’s famous ball parks. Craving a loaded Chicago dog? Stop by this new restaurant and treat yourself! Perhaps you prefer a brat from Milwaukee. They have them too. However, you may want to reconsider putting ketchup on your dog. To many culinary experts, this is just not acceptable (and possibly un-American!). Perhaps the best feature at this new restaurant is the gourmet mustard bar!

Located across from Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food which opened in February of this year, this new Orlando restaurant is easy to find and sure to be a popular quick eating alternative. Hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Prices range from $9 to $14, so I doubt you will want to get into a hot dog eating contest at these prices, but one or two are sure to fill you up.

If you are looking for a place to eat your favorite hot dog, be sure to check out the Hot Dog Hall of Fame. If you are open to other American favorites, be sure to save a night for a dinner show. While hot dogs are not on the menu at Capone’s Dinner & Show, feel free to stuff yourself with many other American favorites. Kids (and adults) love the pizza and chicken bites. Picky pasta eaters get to create their own combination of pastas and sauces. Let’s not forget the meat carving station where you can sample three delicious freshly roasted meats. Best of all, tickets are half price when you purchase them online.

This new restaurant at Orlando’s theme parks is sure to be a hit. Another hit you don’t want to swing and miss is Capone’s Dinner & Show. Let Al and the gang take you out to a different type of ball park and immerse yourself in 1930’s gangland Chicago. It’s a blast!

Kissimmee Restaurants: American Cuisine

This week’s feature will highlight American cuisine restaurants in Kissimmee. It’s hard to get any more “American” than a good hamburger. If that is what you are craving, the fast food restaurants featured in our article “Restaurants in Kissimmee: Fast Food Overview” are hard to beat. Who can resist a hamburger from Five Guys?

If you are not in the mood for a burger or would like to sit down and have a slower relaxed meal with wait staff, keep reading. Other American cuisine restaurants in Kissimmee that feature great dishes may be a better option for you. Please note that Steakhouse restaurants in Kissimmee will be featured at a later date. Many of their listings can be found in our article “Restaurants in Kissimmee: Dine-in Chains.”

In the heart of downtown Kissimmee, Savion’s Place, located at16 E. Dakin Ave., Kissimmee, FL caters to families and serves up some great American dishes. If you have kids, this is a great place to dine with grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken fingers and more for the little ones, who, by the way, dine free on Tuesdays!

Another great restaurant in downtown Kissimmee is Joanie’s Diner. This Kissimmee restaurant is just as you would picture a little local diner. With everything home made, the burgers are great and the chicken-fried steak with home fries is too. Walk in and seat yourself. Get ready for some local conversation.

While it is a little harder to find, the meal is worth it at the Beacon Deli & Portside Pub located within the Lighthouse Resort on W. 192 in Kissimmee, FL 34747. A great meal here would consist of the wings and onion rings, however, their burger is delicious too. If you go in the day or during warmer weather, sit by the pool and enjoy the lakeside view.

Craving a good ol’ American hot dog? Check out Willy’s Wieners at 108 E. Dakin Ave. in Kissimmee. Whether you like the Chicago Style, Wisconson or the New Yorker, these dogs will satisfy your craving. The prices are great and outdoor seating available.

A chain restaurant in Kissimmee that features American cuisine is Johnny Rockets on John Young Parkway in Kissimmee. This Kissimmee restaurant will take you back a few decades with the decor, however, the prices are current. Many of their locations are next to movie theaters, so grab a burger, cheese fries and milk shake and skip the popcorn during the movie.

Another American restaurant in Kissimmee on John Young Parkway is Nikki’s Corner Cafe. Opened in 2012, this restaurant shows promise with friendly staff and great home cooking, oh and, free wi-fi. Give it a try and let us know what you think of the place by leaving a comment.

Wreckers Sports Bar at Gaylord Palms Resort is a great place to eat American food. If you want to watch a sporting event on their TVs, or let the kids play awhile, this is a great kissimmee restaurant choice. Despite not quite qualifying as “American” food, the nachos are a hit.

It goes without saying that if you are looking for some awesome entertainment during your meal at an American cuisine restaurant in Kissimmee, make a reservation at Capone’s Dinner & Show. The American cuisine featured in their dinner buffet will fill you up. It’s the best of both worlds – a Kissimmee restaurant and an Orlando area attraction all in one. Use the half off coupon, and you’ve got yourself a great American deal!
