It looks like I'll be leaving Miami in about a month, to accept a job in Kissimmee and move in with a buddy in Casselberry (in the northern part of Orlando). I know he goes out to eat at a lot of chain restaurants and Chinese buffets, but what are some Chowhound-approved places in the Kissimmee and Casselberry areas? Local is nice, cheap is even better, and places that are open late might end up being life-savers for me. Big portions are just a bonus! Basically, I'll be a young professional in my first "real job," but trying to live on a college student's budget.
I'm the kind of guy who loves good deli sandwiches, NY-style pizza, subs, burgers, and barbecue. All-you-can-eat buffet options will be welcome, particularly Thai or Indian so I can try new things. I cook Italian pretty well, so that's probably my least concern, but it would be nice to know about a Greek place, affordable-but-good sushi, Cuban food for this soon-to-be-transplanted Miami boy, nice Mexican cuisine that isn't necessarily a chain, and so on. Any advice will be much appreciated! I enjoy cooking for myself and even grocery shopping, but I crave options and variety.
(Also, for anyone who knows those two areas, what kind of commute will I be looking at?)
