ORLANDO CHEAP EATS
Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café
It’s not uncommon to be greeted by Theo Hollerbach with a Das Boot of beer at this authentic, family-owned German gem in downtown Sanford serving generous portions of traditional sausage, schnitzel, sauerkraut, and brew in big glass mugs.
The name says it all – lounge in the shade at this American Mediterranean eatery situated along the beautiful and bustling Lake Eola while enjoying a hummus platter, cold drinks and prime people watching.
903 Mills Market
Dine al fresco at this casual neighborhood café tucked away near Lake Davis featuring delicious sandwiches, pitchers of mimosas and a self-serve cooler stocked with beers and sodas.
4 Rivers Smokehouse
There’s a local cult following for this Texas-style BBQ joint, but don’t let the long lines stop you from filling your belly with delicious comfort food like smoked brisket, pulled pork, sweet potato casserole, baked beans and jalapeño corn bread.
Lee & Rick’s Oyster Bar
Belly up at the no-frills, slurp-and-toss bar to order a bucket of fresh oysters that the bartender will shuck and serve directly to you with all the customary side fixings.

The Black Hammock
It’s more about the unconventional experience and less about the food at this off-the-beaten-path spot with wildlife exhibits, spectacular sunsets overlooking Lake Jesup (home to more than 10,000 alligators) and a taste of real Florida on the menu including fried gator tail, catfish and cheap buckets of beer.
