Looking for some good food around Disney and such. Maybe a decent BBQ spot and then a nice steak restaurant.

Any other tips, as to which beach would be decent for family, would be appreciated.

I will have a few free days, so we are looking for decent, not big crowd kind of activities. It has been some time since I have been there.

The best BBQ in Orlando is 4 rivers. There will be a long wait and its a bit of a drive from Disney, but worth it. Also its fairly cheap for what you get.

If the BBQ is worth it, the drive isn't bad at 20 miles.......

The link above is broken. Any other outdoor activity tips?

Another option for TdB is to go the lunch on friday. It is 24.99 and includes most of the meats on the dinner menu, minus a few of the specialty cuts. If you do it, make sure to make reservations as it fills up with lots of business folk taking out client etc. Its every bit as awesome as the dinner. Oh yeah, best lobster bisque there as well.

I'll second Four Rivers too. They're opening a new location about a mile from where I live. I have to wait until March though.

Thanks for all the good tips. The only dump we ate at was Wildside BBQ. It was either cold or so overcooked I needed to play hockey with it. I have eaten at several Texas de Brazil and, by far, the Orlando one was the best.

I spoke with a few local that recommended Pio Pio and it was very good and reasonably priced.

Thanks again.

Not a steak house, but when my family flies in for a visit they like to go to Sweet Tomatoes.
There's one just outside of Disney property on SR 535. It's an all you can eat soup, salad and bread
buffet. The restaurant is mostly vegetarian.

(Hint: instead of buying the side of chicken for the salad, my Dad gets the chicken soup. It contains
large pieces of chicken breast. For desert, use a soup bowl for a fresh chocolate brownie with
soft serve.)

As for beaches, we like the Canaveral National Seashore. It's located at the south end of New Smyrna Beach.
You pay to enter, but the beaches are less crowded. Be aware, sometimes the park is full. There's only
so many vehicles permitted to enter. I believe they have canoe rentals for the inlet, the Turtle Mound
(Indian shell mound), and during the season, hatching sea turtles.

Ate at 4 Rivers over the weekend and WOW. It ranks up there with my favorite childhood BBQ joints. Very good stuff. I heard sometimes they can be off but they were spot on. The biscuits were... different. Fries and green beans were good though. My SO said it was really good too. We all got the pork. I like a sweet, spicy sauce and theirs was excellent.

The new location will be in Winter Garden. Dillard Rd.. and 50. They're renovating an old Chinese Rest. that went out several years ago and has been vacant.

ETA: I didn't see someone else had already answered the question. Reading is fundamental.

Glad you had a good time in Orlando. Pio Pio is pretty good, but can be hit or miss.
