Oh so Gouda burger

cheddarjacksWe found another good, local restaurant on our weekend travels. This time in Winter Park. After a morning of moving furniture from Ocala to Meghan’s and Emily’s houses, we stopped at Cheddar Jack’s for lunch before returning home.

Located on Aloma, Cheddar Jack’s serves breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu included monkey bread and apple fritter French toast. Two interesting sounding dishes, but since we were there for lunch we gorged ourselves on sandwiches and fries. John gave his Philly cheese steak sandwich high marks and I enjoyed the “Oh so Gouda burger”…two fresh beef patties topped with Gouda, caramelized onions, and bacon. It really was oh so Gouda!

We topped off our meal with a slice of coconut cream pie. Delicious, but I wonder why they felt it necessary to top the meringue with whipped cream and drizzle it with chocolate syrup? It would have been perfect without these additions.

I just love finding hidden treasures like Cheddar Jack’s.
