So last night was date night, and we headed out to Universal City Walk in Orlando. Our only stop was Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville. We had so much fun in this lively atmosphere that we felt no need to patronize any other establishment.
As we entered, we beelined straight upstairs to our favorite of the four bars. Our server, April, was affable and guided us to the perfect menu items for us. Stef had the famous Cheeseburger in Paradise, a quarter pound of fine beef, American cheese, lettuce, sliced tomato, pickles, and paradise island sauce. It was the classic Jimmy Buffet meal, and Stef loved it.
I experienced the Florida Grouper Sandwich, a grilled portion of Florida grouper, tomato, caper aioli, grilled red onions, avocado, and coleslaw. I particularly enjoyed that the coleslaw was not overly saucy, so the crisp cabbage was evident. As for the aioli, one of my catchphrases is, “You had me at capers!”
We also sampled the White Cheddar Cheese Curds with LandShark Lager BBQ and marinara sauces. I consider us cheese curd aficionados, and these were excellent! Along with Stef’s blender of beer and my glass of Pino Grigio, we indulged in the perfect meal.
The environment was electric. Jimmy Buffet tunes played over the speakers and video feed, and at about 9:30 a band took over the entertainment. Overall I’d say a fine time was had by all. I highly recommend you stop in when you get a chance.
I’ll see you there…
