Flo's V8 Cafe
counter service Restaurant
Published: September 15, 2014
This roadside diner dropped its original menu in September 2014 and now offers rotisserie chicken, a turkey dip sandwich, a roast beef & cheddar sandwich, and barbecue ribs. A vegetarian potato bake is also available, as are single-serving fruit and chocolate mud pies.Tweet
Surprisingly great quality food along with great value! I haven't had anything that I didn't like at this restaurant. Instead of generic and bland theme park food, this place has savory foods and a nifty theme to go along with it! The service at the counter is always consistent and I've never been disappointed.
I prefer the section that looks like a doctor's office as I'm a fan of the parallels of medical and automotive "repair"
Flo's is one part table service dining (real silverware), one part counter service, and all old school diner. Quite a unique eatery for a theme park! We ordered several entrees and shared. The Pork Loin with Coca-Cola BBQ Sauce was quite good, but so was the Citrus Turkey Breast with Old Fashioned Turkey Gravy. The surprise of the meal was the Veggie Tater Bake (roasted veggies, bulgur wheat, soy crumbles, and smashed red skin potatoes topped with cheddar cheese) which was very good despite the absence of the meat we all love so darn much! I recommend a stop at Flo's for anyone willing to try something a little bit different at a theme park. Flo's is great.
One of my two favorite places to eat in DCA. Haven't had breakfast here, but I love the Coca Cola BBQ and the Potato/Veggie mashup. As for sides, the pasta salad always tastes good to me. Portions of the three main plates are not skimpy.
My wife and I had breakfast here. I ordered the chicken tamales and she had the french toast. Disney used to be very conservative with food, trying to make it inoffensive so as to be "acceptable" to anyone, but that just translates to bland. The salsa over my tamales and eggs had a very nice kick, and the salted caramel sauce on the french toast was very rich. Some people may not like one or the other, but it is interesting. The quality of the eggs and tamales themselves were better than average for counter-service theme park standards, but not outstanding. Although the food was served on real dishes with silverware, our coffee and tea still came in the usual Disney styrofoam cups. Real ceramic mugs would have been a nice touch, especially because the back dining room and adjacent patio offer excellent views of Radiator Springs Racers and is an excellent place to sit and relax over a nice hot drink for a little while. A good plan for a morning at DCA at park opening: grab fastpasses for Radiator Springs Racers, hop in line for Luigi's Flying Tires before it gets too long, then enjoy a nice breakfast at Flo's.
