SoCo is a treasure. Southern touches - okra and greens often availaible - but this is no Cracker Barrell. Excellent food; well crafted libations; and an easy-going atmosphere. Highly recommended!

About the restaurant
Sand Lake locals know that Eddie V’s is the place to go when premium seafood and maybe a spot of live jazz is on the menu. Guests can start in the V lounge, with music, oysters, and a huge range of expertly poured drinks. Then sit down in the vibrant dining room, awash with aquatic art and sculptures. The Maine lobster tacos are an Eddie V’s specialty all over America, and they're a real hit in Orlando. The grilled sweetcorn pico completes this luxurious taco- the perfect way to start any night at Eddie V’s.

Eddie V's restaurant consistently tops our expectations. During our recent dining experience, Spencer and his team went above and beyond to provide exceptional service. Although I cannot recall the name of the lady who assisted Spencer, I do remember that she played a significant role in creating a lively and laid-back atmosphere that made our birthday celebration truly special. I believe she was involved in the opening of the Nashville location. Overall, we had a wonderful time at Eddie V's and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for outstanding food and service.

About the restaurant
It’s an easy misconception that all golf course restaurants are posh or stuffy. The Tap Room on Dubsdread golf course is happily breaking that stereotype. The friendly dining area is smart yet relaxed, and it’s still a great spot for people watching as this is a favorite haunt of many local celebrities. The Tap Room’s fish tacos are possibly some of the best tacos in Orlando. There’s a diner’s choice of corn or flour tortillas, plus the sides of yellow rice and the house black beans complete the meal perfectly.

About the restaurant
El Patron is one of very few Orlando eateries to offer Artisan tacos. These are some of the best tacos in Orlando, with up to 13 different fillings that range from the authentic to the unexpected. Grilled chicken with Pico de Gallo feels pretty traditional, but then there are choices like blue shell crab in beer batter, or chorizo with white potato. Can’t decide? Mix and match for the perfect taco plate.

About the restaurant
The Omni Orlando Resort at Champion’s Gate is full of luxurious spots to wind down or fill up. David’s Club ticks both of those boxes. The restaurant enjoys awesome views across the resort, and the enormous video wall keeps sports fans happy, too. The menu is a feast of American classics, from burgers in brioche to signature steaks. The tacos are on the appetizer menu, and are the perfect way to start any meal. Choose from steak, chicken or fish, all served with a lime chili slaw and the unusual addition of smoked tomato. It’s the attention to detail that makes the difference here.

About the restaurant
Orlando locals don’t just go to the mall to shop. The Mall at Millenia is home to one of the city’s favorite spots for elevated comfort food: Earl’s Kitchen and Bar. Earl’s has a tradition of delivering great drinks and better food, and that includes some of the best tacos in Orlando. The Blackened swordfish tacos come with melting cheddar, creamed, roasted jalapenos and Pico de Gallo. It’s well worth substituting the normal fries for the house truffle fries for an even more luxurious experience.

Enjoyable and very comfy outside seating. Mixed crowd from mall shoppers, date night to business. Our waiter (Ben) was very attentive, brought out a blanket when outside temp dropped after sunset. Excellent cocktails (recommend dry gin Negroni). We enjoyed variety of appetizers, pizza and seafood platter. Cheesecake and crème brûlée are both excellent. You will not be rushed when dining at Earls. Manager checked in with us 2x to ensure our party was happy with food and service.

About the restaurant
Small plates and a buzzing atmosphere are at the core of this Lake Nona favorite. Locals know that Orlando is full of amazing fish tacos. Chroma serves not just one, but two of the best in town. The pan-seared white fish tacos have the tongue-tingling combo of onion and cilantro. The tempura fish tacos dress haddock in a light, crispy batter and serve it up in tortillas with slaw and chipotle aioli. A great showcase of Florida seafood.

About the restaurant
Just north of Lake Nona, this social and charismatic restaurant combines old-school service and ambiance with a modern and vibrant menu. Guests can watch the game with a beer or tuck into dishes like three-meat meatballs or seared tuna salad. Nona proudly serves two types of street tacos. The San Francisco Mission District tacos combine lettuce, sour cream and a choice of shrimp, fish, chicken or steak. The Baja-style switches out mango Pico de Gallo for chipotle mayo and avocado. Tons of flavor, either way.

About the restaurant
Visitors to Disney Springs have a range of dining options on offer, but few are as vibrant and exciting as Jaleo by José Andrés. Spanish flavors combine with local produce to create dishes like steak with piquillo peppers or chilled Gazpacho soup. Jose’s Taco is a real luxury dish with some sensational Spanish flair. Ibérico de bellota combines with just the right amount of caviar for something truly special. Booking recommended.

About the restaurant
Urban Flats is a Winter Garden hip space which makes the most of fresh, seasonal produce in a modern American menu. The vibe is cool yet relaxed, and there’s often sport playing on the big screen. The two tacos on offer couldn’t be more different. One is full of blackened, seasoned fish with a sweet and spicy slaw. The other heads East for a Korean-inspired bulgogi made from certified Angus beef with house-made chips. The only difficulty is choosing!

About the restaurant
Florida fish and seafood is some of the best in the world. Reel Fish takes full advantage of this to deliver a coastal dining experience packed with ocean-inspired classics. The dinner menu is full of classics like grilled salmon and a warming house chowder, plus some of the best tacos in Orlando. These Baja-style tacos come with either cod, shrimp or chicken, with tropical salsa and a spicy mayo. A real experience.

Right on the edge of Little Sand Lake, Rocco’s delivers a taste of the real Mexico. They serve hundreds of varieties of tequila for late night partying, plus a range of popular street tacos. Each order is three tortillas filled with exciting choices like the Brooklyn (pork belly and salsa brava) or California fish. Swap the shells out for lettuce leaves for a lighter option. Order the guacamole and watch the team prepare it at the tableside. A real interactive experience.

The menu revolves around top Florida seafood, including an enormous range of sashimi and nigiri. Look under the sandwiches section of the main menu to discover some of the best tacos in Orlando. These fish tacos have the tropical flavor of pineapple, plus creamy avocado and the zing of Pico de Gallo.

About the restaurant
A Disney Springs favorite for anyone in love with Mexican flavors. This celebrity-chef run joint offers a menu with something for everyone. This includes some of the best tacos in Orlando: Soft, warm tortillas filled with carne asada and poblano rajas, or grilled chipotle chicken and refried beans. There’s even a mouth-watering vegan option of roasted cauliflower with Mexican calabacitas. Anyone who books here must try the tequila flights for the complete experience.

About the restaurant
This vibrant chain fits right in on Orlando’s busy International Drive. It’s a mix of flavor and fun, with kids welcome and something for everyone on the menu. There’s definitely a Tex-Mex vibe running through the options on offer, including sharing guacamole, quesadillas, and plenty of tacos. For a healthier option, try the Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad. Or, for the full experience, choose from six types of taco. The steak taco uses the house secret recipe- it’s worth going just for this.

First time visiting Señor Frog’s in Orlando and it was a great experience. Wonderful fun atmosphere. Food was good and the drinks definitely get you feeling good! Only thing I would say is the disco lights were a bit much for my eyes being that it causes me to have migraines, so I did have to move around at our booth to find a comfortable spot for me. So anyone who suffers from migraines or epilepsy be mindful and maybe ask to be seated away from the direct flashing bright lights. I will definitely return to dine in but I will request to be seated away from the flashing bright lights.
