Newk’s Eatery is the latest arrival in the ever changing world of Fast Casual restaurants.

As time goes on the concept of fast casual keeps getting more popular in the United States. Maybe it’s because we are so busy and pressed for time, or maybe people like the simplicity of a place that does not offer full table service, but promises a higher quality of food.

Founded in 2004 by Don Newcomb, Debra Bryson and Chris Newcomb in Oxford, Mississippi, Newk’s was born out of a personal passion for the kitchen. Many of the staple menu items are from treasured Newcomb family recipes and that is how the “Newk’s” name came to fruition. The restaurant is committed to sourcing the finest ingredients with nothing that is pre chopped, pre sliced or pre packaged.

Inside you will find an open kitchen design so guests can see all the sights and smell all the smells of the meals that are being made. The menu consists of made from scratch sandwiches, salads, soups and California style pizzas using fresh and flavorful ingredients. As you walk inside Newk’s , you order your food, you pay, and then receive a number for your table. As you seat yourself a staff member will bring out your food when ready.

The centerpiece of all Newk’s restaurants is a pretty jazzy condiment bar. Here guests can find pickles, olives, peppers, roasted garlic, bread sticks, Parmesan, and a variety of hot sauces to add to the food they order.

Inside is very spacious and open with an option of booths or tables to sit at. If you are in a real hurry, there is also an area for grab and go food that features pre made sandwiches, soups and salads in a chilled display case.

The Cobb Salad has sliced flame grilled chicken breast, crumbled bacon, Arcadian mixed greens, diced hard boiled eggs, crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, sweet grape tomatoes, green onions, pecans, house made croutons and a creamy bleu cheese dressing. This salad was big enough to share with great flavors and texture.

The “Newk’s Q” pizza is a 10 inch pie topped with sliced flame grilled chicken breast, signature white BBQ sauce, crumbled bacon, ripe Roma tomatoes, jalapenos, house shredded mozzarella and provolone cheeses over a crust brushed with chili oil. I was really impressed with the crust and flavors on this pizza. It had a decent amount of heat and plenty of toppings.

During our visit we really enjoyed the food we tasted, and I can certainly say we will go back again. Newk’s menu is not only fresh, but it's also affordable. Only a few items top the $12.00 range with most items in the $7.00 to $9.00 range for really good quality food.

The Alafaya location is the first for Newk’s Eatery in Central Florida. The brand is looking expand to twelve corporate owned locations in the Orlando area over the next five years, and plans to grow to more than 300 units in the United States by 2018.

Newk's Eatery is open daily from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm.
