We liked going to Linda's because there are no surprises. They probably get the best quality of beef possible for a standard price so they results are usually good. There were three generations of us and no one had a bad meal. It was not the best steak I have ever had but I felt the quality was commensurate with... More

My family and I took my mom to Linda's La Cantina for her 78th birthday. Six of our meals included steak and two included seafood. We also had two appetizers, a fried onion and fried mushrooms. First let me say the steaks were good. However the goodness stopped there. The appetizers seemed like they came out of a bag in... More

I started going to this restaurant as a kid with my parents back in the '70s when it was in a little frame house. It is truly the greatest steaks you will ever eat. Cozy bar area. Great service. When I come back home I always try and make it a point to visit Linda's.

This restaurant easily matches very high end steak houses but at about half the cost. Their steaks rival the quality of any I've ever had. The atmosphere is casual and the service can fall behind, but overall this is one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando.

Linda's La Cantina still serves one of the best steak dinners in the Orlando area. It doesn't have the upscale appearance of many chain steak houses but it does offer a comfortable and welcoming place for a great steak. The service staff usually does a fine job especially the long time staff. Linda's is very popular with the locals and... More

We just dined at Linda's La Cantina restaurant, and it is one of our favorites! Their steaks are excellent and cooked to order. We love their spaghetti and even their fresh baked bread is excellent. Husband enjoys their minestrone soup. One tip -- if you want to eat there on Saturday evening, make reservations earlier in the week. By the... More

We have been coming here for years. I have been to all the more expensive steak restaurants but I keep coming back here. Why? The food is excellent and the wait staff is as well. Don't expect all the modern fancy decor. It's more like the simple, down home place you keep returning too. Order the ribeye you won't be... More

The steaks are consistently the best available in all of Central Florida. The restaurant has checkered table cloths and a line out the door. Nothing fancy in this family owned restaurant but the steaks overflow the plate and on any night you can find the place filled with locals celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and prom or just out for a good...

Linda's has been around for ever and serves the best steaks you can imagine. The Ribeye is always cooked to perfection and the prices are reasonable. This place is popular so make reservations on weekends.

Went to Linda's for dinner. Had the NY strip and spaghetti. Steak was one the best I've had in a long time. Nice atmosphere and has a full liquor bar. Will return the next time in area.
