“Hidden treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

We visit Orlando yearly and try to eat at a variety of places. This place was so good. I will never eat at the fast food chain that tries to be like Beefy King because it is just shameful in comparison. The sandwiches are one of a kind, the staff was extremely pleasant, the dining area can get crowded but wouldn't change a thing! Way to go Beefy King! See you next year!

“not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Lately Beefy King's sandwiches have gotten smaller. Even the "extra large" now contains about the same amount of meat as an Arby's regular roast beef sandwich. The sandwich makers throw it together with little care. Staff morale seems to have slipped. I hope this is a temporary situation as for a long time Beefy King's was an Orlando landmark and a great place to eat fast food.

“Non-fancy Totally Delicious and model service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

I've passed by this sandwich shop countless times in the 20+ years of living in Central Florida, but this was my first time to go inside for a lunch . . . and it was simply perfection. Got the roast beef sandwich and a vanilla shake. The nice lady taking my order was accurate and quick. The time waiting for my order was less than expected.
They advertise that the beef is cooked fresh daily, and I have zero reason to doubt that as it was extremely tasty and tender. I only saw two types of BBQ sauce available in the dining room, but both were enjoyable. The horseradish sauce had a perfect light 'kick'.
Absolutely nothing about this place looks fancy, and it doesn't need that. The food, all on its own, creates the foodie experience. Beefy King deserves every award and verbal kudos it receives. Don't wait as long as I did to try it out first-hand.
