This is only a few minutes from SeaWorld and was a great quick dinner before heading back to the hotel. The burgers were cooked to order, not sitting around waiting. The place is appropriately loud so that you don't feel your kids have to whisper.

My friend made me go and said it was good. I've been going ever since. This is my #1 go to place. Sweet Potato casserole and potato casserole are the 2 sides you want. Marbleized brisket and all other meats are good.
