    i went to the macardo 5yrs ago it has all been demolished now when we went it had fallen on very hard times it was full of british refugies trying to eat for nothing and get free entertainment that part of internation dr looked like the ppl who were there could not afford to be there it was not a nice experience and the sad thing was they were prob all on package hols paying far more than we did for our hol

    Burger king
    Mcdonalds
    Kfc
    Pizza hut
    Dominos

    ..........lol

    Seriously, Ponderosa is nice. Most steak houses.

    oh....i loved arbys and checkers. :oops:

    they r very good excelent service they often ask r u english? would you like us to slow your order down as you tend to use this as a night out and not just to eat as many americans do last time an american guy was havin a fit cos he had been sat at his table for 4 mins and his drink had still not arrived!!! 4 mins!!!!

    Blimey. I'm amazed. Last time we were there was 1995 and the Mercado was really nice. Good food court and plenty of good shops and bars. We always thought that the other end of I-Drive looked crappy! How times change.

    one of my bad experiences eating out was on international dr it was at that big chinese place with the large carp pool round it

    the food was great but the service was worse than here so we olny left a 10% and to be honest she was not worth the $10 the waitress went off it shouting at us and demanded the other $15!! we were so embarrased and it was our first trip to florida we paid

    After chatting to some americans ofer the next few days there were appalled and sed we should olny have left a penny these ppl do not have a right to a tip.

    They earn sometimes less than min wage one told us in dennys she was on $2.85 but a waitress in rainforest cafe sed last year she earnd $94,000 in tips!!!! and an other at outback when splendid china was open sed he got $45,000 in 7 months

    anyone slse remember splendid china ? i lked it there any one know what happend to the site when it closed?
