Red Mug Diner In Downtown Orlando Offers Delicious Eats 24 Hours A Day (GIVEAWAY)

A 24 hour diner with a full liquor bar opens its doors in Downtown Orlando starting April 18th and is not trying to recreate the wheel… just create a really good wheel. The Red Mug Diner has the classic era motif: puffy red seats, stainless steel, white/black mosaic tiles, and of course a huge menu. We were invited to take a peek and share it with you.

Created by the team who brought several popular hospitality venues to Downtown Orlando are now introducing their second dining establishment. They brought in an experienced and capable chef Mark Dollard who focuses on each plate coming out hot and fresh every time. He’s the chef responsible for the delicious BBQ menu at the new Saddle Up Lake Buena Vista location  and created the delicious eats on the Red Mug Diner menu covering all the necessary culinary comfort foods you crave any time of day. Our friends at Red Mug Diner are giving you another reason to swing on by and check out the place.  Want a chance to WIN a $25 gift card?  Keep scrolling


BIG PLATES: Thank the lord. Nothing worse than it being 3am or lunch and you have your eyes set on a a fluffy stack of pancakes or a hearty soup and sandwich only to  end up with a tapas style serving. This food comes out big and the flavor is done right!

COFFEE DONE RIGHT: Coffee. The coffee is worth mentioning and worth ditching the chains for. If you work or play downtown this is a hook. You can get your favorite cup o’ joe including specialty coffee drinks made with fresh coffee beans ground fresh on site from the local beanery Get Roasted. Looking for a little dessert with your coffee? Their delicious desserts like the sour cream apple cobbler, New York Style cheesecake and bourbon pecan pie are provided by The Dessert Lady.

STAFF/ SERVICE: Red Mug Diner found the right people to work here. Our waiter was Tony, a 25 year diner vet from New York that caught wind of the chance to move to sunnier weather and apply his charisma to the overall charm.

24 HOURS. SERIOUSLY: This is enticing for a few key groups that traverse downtown: Sports Enthusiasts: After an exciting Orlando Magic, City, Pride, Solar Bears, or Predator game grabbing food that satisfies parents, couples, kids, fans whose team won (and lost) have needed a place to get some serious eats.

THE BAR PATRONS: Yes we know a few vodka sodas and jack and cokes make me crave bacon and waffles. They also have a fully stocked bar and make a mean bloody mary from scratch.

DOWNTOWN WORKERS: You can finally get breakfast downtown. Or lunch/dinner at breakfast time. Sometimes it’s the little things that make something special. For us this is a bonus. If you’re in a rush you can hit up the Red Mug Express filled with grab and go items like fruit, breakfast sandwiches, and freshly bottled juices from Thornton Park local, Juice’d.

TOURISTS: The most infamous 4 letter word of Orlando. With tourism bringing in over 50 million guests a year and hundreds of thousands to Downtown we offer a modern retro American Diner to give them that USA experience.
