Neighborhood Eats: The top four restaurant's in Sanford's saddle


Sanford is close enough to Orlando to share in its many benefits, but far enough away to have an identity all of its own.

That identity is best shown through its surprisingly great restaurant scene, and as we continue our quest to pick out the best restaurants that perfectly represents Orlando's growing restaurant scene, let's chow down at Sanford's four best restaurants.

Hollerbach's Willow Tree Café
You would think that a restaurant like the Willow Tree Café would be located somewhere in downtown Orlando. But one of Central Florida's best German eats actually resides here in this downtown Sanford institution. If you have never had German, this is the best place to get acquainted with this dynamite cuisine. (407) 321-2204

Angel's Soul Food & BBQ
Can we get an amen for this soul food hotspot? Angel's Soul Food & BBQ is a hole-in-the-wall joint that hits the soul with its southern flavored menu that tastes just like it came from your grandmother's kitchen. (407) 732-4544

Buster's Bistro
Downtown Sanford, to the surprise of many, has one heck of a dining scene. One of the best is Buster's Bistro, Belgian style pub that has a cuisine that is out of this world. Buster's Bistro kind of flies under the radar, which is a shame because it deserves a whole lot more praise. (407) 732-6880

Cattle Ranch
Although Sanford has become a city in its own right, it is still a charming old Florida city which means that it has to have a rustic steakhouse that represents its small town flavor. Enter Cattle Ranch, which has steaks so delicious it will make your head spin. (407) 321-5761
