Scott's Review
The burgers here are impressively big, about seven ounces, though honestly they looked bigger. I was annoyed before ordering when I was told by the venue’s chef, Bill Brown, that the burgers could not be cooked at a temperature below medium. Even more annoying was the reason. Instead of saying that the company was concerned about the possibility of bacteria in ground beef not being killed if undercooked — which I would have taken as a more honest answer — Brown said that they just feel the burgers are at their juiciest when cooked to medium, which I consider hooey. ...

Inside the Meat House (which may or may not now be The Local), Da Kine is a mostly takeout purveyor of the Hawaiian poke, basically fresh raw fish in a bowl with other ingredients. ... Read more

Go to Danketsu if it’s in your neighborhood and you have a hankering for Japanese, sushi, Korean or just about any other Asian cuisine. But I wouldn’t drive across town just to go there.... Read more

Scott's Review
Located at the new Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek, deep blu (no typo, they lowercase the name) features a mainly seafood menu (duh). It's hit or miss on quality, however. A simple grilled swordfish entree was first rate, as was the crab cake appetizer. The large open kitchen is a main decor element of the dining room and prevents it from feeling too upscale....

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House has come into the area in a big way, with an emphasis on the big. The new restaurant on International Drive is huge. Of course, the main event here is meat -- big, expensive hunks of it, nicely broiled and juicy.... Read more

Scott's Review
Even though this is a restaurant out of New York, don't confuse it with the legendary Manhattan steakhouse. Not that you would once you stepped inside this casual yet boisterous place. The signature item here is the same-named cut of meat.

I must say it was an impressive looking steak, a beautiful 24-ouncer that had been cooked perfectly to the requested medium-rare. And with the exception of the first bite, which was all gristle, the meat was quite tender, and at $19.99 for such a large steak, it seemed to be quite a deal.

So would it have been too much to ask that the steak have some flavor? It had none. It was ultimately just a big slab of meat that could substantially fill an empty stomach without offering much in the way of enjoyment. It was served with a side of penne with a passable red sauce.

Unfortunately, management seems to think that anyone coming in through the door is a tourist. They're not treated poorly, they're just not treated as though they're coming back again. There are dozens of places on International Drive that are better than Delmonico's.
