“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

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 is a favorite spot for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Without a reservation the wait is usually long or impossible to get table so do call ahead. The steak, any cut really is the feature here but Linda does offer several other options if steak isn't your thing.

“Always Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

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 time they open at 4:00 on Saturday, they are usually not taking any more reservations, although sometimes they do seat standbys.

“Always a great experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

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 sorry. Lots of families come to celebrate birthdays, etc. also.

“Steaks that will rival your best experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

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 dinner.

The menu contains alternatives for those that would like to enjoy fish or chicken. The chef went to New Orleans to learn to cook blackened red snapper that I order as an appetizer but is available also as an entre.

Good food, friendly atmosphere and a taste experience you will come back for time and time again.

“Great for steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

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.
