The Back Room Steakhouse is a hidden gem located right next to a Beef O’Brady’s sports bar in Apopka.

This steakhouse is famous for its aged, Black Angus steaks including New York Strips, Rib Eyes, Porterhouse and more.

The restaurant also features seafood and pasta dishes that are all excellent.

And of course, there is a full bar.

Everything is tasty here but a few of the standouts in our eyes include:

  • 16 oz. Ribeye
  • Crab & Brie Cheese Flat Bread (appetizer)
  • The BOSS Burger (you better be hungry!)

This is an excellent place to go for a hearty meal and aged steak.  Highly recommended!

Porkie’s rivals BBQ eateries all over the country that we have tried and for that we are very thankful.

They are most famous for their slow-cooked ribs, prepared with oak and hickory wood resulting in a delicious smokey taste that can’t be beaten.

Porkie’s provides a family-friendly atmosphere that makes eating here fun.

Our favorites here include:

  • Fried Okra (appetizer)
  • Pulled Pork Sandwich (best in Florida)
  • Baby Back Dinner

This is the kind of place that you can visit without worrying about taking off your hat, but still get fantastic yet inexpensive food.
