If you’ve traveled from out of town to cheer on the Orlando Pride team, you might feel a little lost as to where you should get your next meal. However, while we are women’s soccer experts, we’re also Orlando food experts, so take a look at our picks for the top 10 local restaurants.

TACOS WITH A SPIN
Tin and Taco
Parmesan crusted taco shells? A bacon cheeseburger turned into a taco? A macaroni and cheese taco? You can even order your tacos over a bag of Doritos! Try them all, and make sure you grab a pineapple cream or agave vanilla soda.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 5 minute drive

Tako Cheena
A self-declared blend of “food truck meets restaurant,” this local spot serves tacos, burritos, and empanadas with a Pan-Asian twist.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 12 minute drive

BURGERS
Beth’s Burgers
In the heart of downtown Orlando, Beth’s Burgers is proud to “prove once again that one girl can beat five guys.” Try the peanut butter burger — trust us — and get a side of tater tots, or go for sweet potato fries with cinnamon sugar.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 6 minute drive

HAWAIIAN
Poke Hana
For quick, casual, and authentic poke bowls, check out Poke Hana! Try their traditional lu’au pork, new garlic shrimp bowl, or spam musubi, and make sure to check for parking behind the restaurant.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 11 minute drive

PIZZA
Gitto’s
Park in the garage across the street at The Cobb and enjoy some delicious New York style pizza, or download the app to order ahead of time. Check their website for daily specials! And if you’re in the mood for a calzone rather than pizza, look no further — this is the place to be.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 6 minute drive

Lazy Moon
You can’t leave Orlando without trying this local classic! Be warned — if you’re getting food to go, make sure you’re driving a car large enough to fit a 30-inch pizza pie. But it’s more fun to hang out, play some bocce ball, and eat your crust the Lazy Moon way: dipped in honey.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 10 minute drive

VEGETARIAN AND LOCAL
Dandelion Communitea Cafe
Self-described as “Orlando's Organic, Vegetarian, and Celiac-Friendly Gathering Place,” this healthy joint has something for everyone. Formerly a cozy, 1920s house, the Dandelion prides themselves on using local, organic, fair-trade, and GMO-free ingredients, and they serve a 100% plant-based menu. Make sure to check out their event calendar to see what’s happening while you’re in town.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 11 minute drive

The Sanctum
The Sanctum makes all their food from scratch with local, non-GMO ingredients, and nearly everything is organic. They rotate their menu to highlight what’s in season, and they even serve locally roasted coffee, all of which is roasted to order!

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 12 minute drive

SOUTHERN COMFORT
The Coop: A Southern Affair
Whether you’re grabbing breakfast before a game or planning for dinner afterwards, this neighborhood restaurant is sure to please! Get comfortable in their dining room of eclectic tables and mismatched chairs, and enjoy roasted chicken (Alabama style), southern collards, and fresh fried okra — just make sure you save room for dessert.

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 18 minute drive

POST GAME DESSERT
The Glass Knife
Although this one-of-a-kind restaurant specializes in cakes, they offer a wide selection of sweet treats and light meals. Split a slice of coconut cream cake or red velvet cake, try an old-fashioned cake donut, or ask about the daily baked goods. Take a look at their events page to see what’s happening during your stay in town!

DISTANCE FROM STADIUM: 14 minute drive
