If burgers and beers are your bag, then we have five pieces of awesome news for you. There are five new spots that have already opened or are on their way to Orlando in the near future that are sure to satiate your burger, beer or both cravings. Here they are:
Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers plans to open their first Orlando location in the fall, offering burgers, dogs and shoestring fries. There will be no beer at this joint, but they'll make up for it with a killer fresh-churned frozen custard. The new burger spot will be located near the Orlando Premium Outlets at 8107 Vineland Ave.
Mills Brewpub, located in the former Banana's Modern Diner location, is now open for business. They've got an array of unusual burgers including elk and bison, plus six beers on draft and more than 80 brews available in the bottle.
Duffy’s Sports Grill announced that it would be taking over the old Crave Restaurant space near the Mall at Millenia. Show up the morning after a binge for their Hangover Burger and a bit of the hair-of-the-dog.
World of Beer is back on track for their Downtown Orlando location, with a planned opening in the fall. We can't wait to kick back with a frosty mug o'beer on their proposed 2,800-square-foot lakeside patio.
And if you have a hankerin' that only a fast food burger can cure, Red Robin opened a new spot on I-Drive. It's the SeattleDenver-based chain's third Orlando location.
