Taking over the old Buffalo Wild Wings Location on Alafaya Trail in 2017, is Castaway’s Sports bar & Grill, A beach themed sports bar and grill with an outstanding food and liquor menu.

They are not a corporate chain like the former tenants, as they are locally owned and operated. The owner, Andrew grew up loving the beaches in Jupiter, and like many of their staff members came to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida. He also had a dream of owning a Bar and Grill.

Castaway’s is a beach themed sports bar and grill with 37 HD 65" flat screen TV's, 6 HD 110" projection screens with 20 plus specialty drinks and signature cast iron cooked seafood and build your own burgers.

The menu here has plenty of options with a variety of seafood appetizers, onion rings, tots, wings, burgers, sandwiches, tacos and daily specials with a pretty decent cocktail menu.

Much of the overall design from the BW's days is still in tact, but with an Island Vibe and a more focused menu that includes way more than just wings. In addition to keeping the TV’s they added some pool tables and a saltwater aquarium at the bar.

The Island Smoked Fish Dip with wild caught Mahi hot smoked, jalapenos and club crackers was really good.

Mango Pineapple Mojito on the left with Captain Morgan Coconut Rum, and a Florida Mule on the right with Deep Eddy Orange Vodka. We also had a Category 5 Hurricane here that pretty much knocked me on my ass. All Cocktails were strong and delicious.

For $6.00 on the late night menu at Castaway’s, you can get these volcano strips with a variety of sauces and some really good tots....this is a great option if you plan on drinking more and eating less, as its plenty for 1 person.

Wilson's Beer and Cheese Bacon Dog is a half pound dog served on a sub roll covered in beer Cheese and Bacon. We got the Onion Rings for an up charge at an additional $1.29 as our side.

The Philly Cheesesteak here is made with hand shaved Angus beef Ribeye, loaded with caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, sweet peppers and jalapenos drizzled with beer cheese and topped with provolone. A bit different than a traditional Philly, but good nonetheless, and the sweet potato waffle fries were excellent.

The Bar at Castaway’s has plenty of alcohol to make the cocktail magic happen, and plenty of TV’s so you never miss a moment.

Pool Tables are an addition to the original Buffalo Wild Wings spot that Castaway’s took over, and I think they are a good addition.

Castaway’s is open from 11:00 am to 2:00 am everyday of the week, and they have daily specials like $12.99 all you can eat wings on Wednesday and a daily happy hour and late night menu with reduced prices on select items.

We will definitely return here and try some wings and other menu items and look forward to their continued success.

Hot Dog Heaven

Hot Dog Heaven is pretty much an Orlando Icon, after all, they have been in business for over 30 years.

In today’s restaurant industry with so many opening and closings, being in business that long is a true testament to the quality and dedication that this true mom and pop place puts out on a daily basis. 

This place is exactly what it sounds like, a restaurant dedicated to hot dogs. They try as hard as they can to present their customers with a true Chicago dog, but also offer it in a variety of flavors and topping varieties as well. All the hot dog options here are made with Vienna Beef Hot Dogs, which is a true staple to the Chicago theme.

The menu starts with an Authentic Chicago Hot Dog that is made with a 100% pure beef Vienna natural casing hot dog on a steamed poppy seed bun, topped with mustard, relish, onion, tomato, pickle, and hot peppers. From there you can go on to other options like...Jumbo Chicago Hot Dog, American Cheese Dog, Swiss Cheese Dog, Slaw Dog, Kraut Dog, Chili Dog, Baked Bean & Onion Dog, Kraut & Slaw Dog, Cheese & Kraut Dog, and a Reuben Dog just to name a few.

If you want something more extravagant, they also offer The Great Chicago Fire Dog with a 100% pure beef Vienna spicy hot dog on a steamed poppy seed bun, topped with mustard, relish, onion, tomato, pickle and hot peppers, and of course they also have Italian Sausage, which is a Thursday special, with green peppers & onions. They also offer a Spicy version of the classic Vienna beef hot dog.

All of the hot dog options here can be ordered separately, or as a combo with fries or chips, and your choice of one side, like coleslaw, macaroni salad, or baked beans. You can also upgrade to Cheese Fries or Chili Cheese Fries.

I opted for the The Spicy Chicago Dog with a spicy all beef Vienna beef hot dog that is served on a steamed poppy seed bun, topped with mustard, relish, onion, tomato, pickle, and hot peppers, with sides of French fries and a side of macaroni salad. This was a really good dog. I’ve been to Chicago and other areas of Illinois, so I'm a bit impartial, but I really enjoyed the spicy dog option Hot Dog Heaven has.

My wife loves a good Kraut Dog, so she ordered the Kraut Dog Combo with sides of French Fries and coleslaw. She really enjoyed her hot dog, and the bite I had was delicious as well. The fries here are made fresh also, and they are nice and crispy. The coleslaw wasn't bad, and my macaroni salad I had as my side was decent.

When you visit Hot Dog Heaven, do yourself a favor and order your soda or whatever you drink in a mug. The Mugs are $2.35, and you own it… bring it back next time, and refills are .35 cents. They are also good to make your favorite cocktails or milkshakes in at home.

Lines on Saturday especially, can be a bit long, but It's worth the wait, and they move pretty fast. Inside the seating is pretty limited, but they do have additional seating outside with several benches on a covered patio, there is also a nice little park directly behind the location with bench seating and a lake view.

Hot Dog Heaven is open Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 am until 6:00pm. They close at 5:00pm on Saturday, and they are closed on Sunday and Monday. If you are in the area, we highly recommend you stop by and visit Hot Dog Heaven. It's truly an Orlando institution that serves up some pretty tasty dogs, and really good fries.
