2020 ORLANDO SENTINEL FOODIE AWARDS
BEST DINER - CENTRAL FLORIDA
"Generally speaking, in northern cities, a diner has one kind of feel. Southern ones, another. Few split the diff as well as Oviedo’s much beloved Town House Restaurant, where you can get delicious, Greek diner-style gyro meat and fresh, bright tzatziki sauce alongside your eggs right next to a country gravy-slathered house-made biscuit that’s soft in all the right places. When the Town House moved just up the street from the small digs it enjoyed since opening in the ’50s, many locals groaned about the loss of a treasure. In its newer space, though, those weekend waits are shorter, the food’s just as good and the old sign has a charming place on the facade.
Winner: The Town House Restaurant (139 N. Central Ave. in Oviedo; 407-365-5151)
