Alex’s has been a household name amongst Orlando natives as the spot to go for Halal Philly Cheese Steaks. They have been serving up freshly made to order sandwiches since the late 1990s.

Perfect Breakfast Scones: Chocolate Chip Scones
This British slight sweet pastry is a staple around tea time. It has been adapted in North America as a specialty dessert.

Located near Disney, this family owned Halal Middle-Eastern Restaurant has been serving locals and visitors for well over a decade. This restaurant offers a much more formal dining experience compared to other Halal restaurants in the area. A nice feature is that it often open late till around 11pm on most nights, so you can enjoy the day at the theme parks and go out for a nice dinner to cap of the evening.
Located in the southeast corner of the greater Orlando area about 20-30 minutes away from the theme parks, Loop Gyros is a great Halal fast-food spot to hit up, especially late as they are open till midnight if not later. They have 2 locations in Kissimmee and we visited their newer location next to the large shopping complex called “The Loop”.
