A new Philly Cheesesteak restaurant called Loading Zone Philly Steaks has opened in Downtown Orlando in the former home of Beth’s Burger Bar at 24 E. Washington Street a few months ago.

They specialize in making authentic Philly Cheese steaks. Although there are many variations of what Authentic actually is, at Loading Zone that means thinly sliced, sauteed ribeye beef, Cheese Whiz or American cheese/Provolone, and a long crusty roll to soak up all the juices.

They have all your traditional Cheese Steaks here as well as standard Mushroom Cheese Steak, Pepper Cheese Steak and a Fully Loaded Cheese Steak. The menu also includes some variations like a Pizzaroni,Chipotle, Buffalo and Teriyaki Steak sandwiches.

In addition to the hot Cheese Steaks, they also have a selection of Cold Hoagies with items like a White Tuna Hoagie, Veggie Hoagie, Turkey Hoagie and a special Italian with Prosciutto.

Loading Zone also offers a wide variety of salads and sides that includes a Cheese Steak Salad, a Crispy Chicken Salad and a Greek Salad among others. Sides include fries, chips, tots, sweet potato fries, chicken tenders and Whiz Tots.

I started with a traditional Philly Cheese steak and Fries covered in Whiz, which was simply amazing.

The Buffalo Cheese steak is made with white American cheese, onions and is tossed in a buffalo sauce for a nice bit of heat. We opted for the the Whiz Tots for our side, and they did not disappoint.

We grabbed a Chefs Salad on our way out to have for the next day. It was more than enough for two people and loaded with meats and toppings.
The Current hours for Loading Zone are:
Monday to Wednesday, 11:00 am to 10:00 pm, Friday to Sunday, 11:00 am to 1:00 am. They are currently doing pick up and delivery orders only right now. When they fully reopen, they are normally open until 3:00 am Wednesday to Saturday.

Castaway's Sports Bar and Grill

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.
