5. Flo’s V8 Café
Flo’s V8 Café is the ultimate place to refuel while racing around in Cars Land. This popular pit stop dishes up all those comfort food classics and all-American favorites you know and love so well, available all day long. Start your engine with a hearty breakfast featuring a broad range of offerings, like the chicken tamale meal for example, which comes in the form of chicken tamales, scrambled eggs, salsa verde, and pico de gallo. There’s also the highly decadent Brioche French toast plate, giving traditional French toast a dressing up with salted caramel sauce and bananas. And you can always order your traditional breakfast fixings too. Lunch and dinner offerings include many delectable picks. The BBQ pork ribs with house-made Coca-Cola® BBQ sauce, mashed potatoes, and coleslaw is one suggestion. Another is the veggie tater bake with bulgur wheat, roasted vegetables, and mashed potatoes topped with cheddar cheese and accompanied by a side of fresh fruit. Other hits here include roast beef and cheddar, citrus turkey salad, spit-fired rotisserie quarter chicken, and turkey dip. Specialty drink selections can top off any delicious meal. And save some room for dessert, because you can’t pass up one of Flo’s signature “pie-o-ramas.” Inspired by the legendary ugly pies of Route 66’s Midpoint Café, Flo’s V8 Café offers up its own unique pie specialties. While not very appetizing to look at, true beauty (or in this case deliciousness) is on the inside with delightfully decadent flavor varieties such as apple-cheddar, chocolate mud pie, and a seasonal fruit selection. In addition to pie, you can tuck into one of many classic shake offerings that come garnished with a tasty “road gravel” topping.
Flo’s V8 Café stands as a quick-service eatery following the style and décor of vintage Americana roadside diners. And staying true to the Cars theme, there are even proud displays of Flo’s mementos from her earlier days when she was the lead singer of the Motorama Girls. Personal effects from the lasting legacy and racing career of Doc Hudson (the Fabulous Hudson Hornet) are also housed here. As you sit one out to dine, take in the surrounding views of the interior along with surrounding outside landscape depictions of Ornament Valley. From this vantage point you can also enjoy unobstructed views of the Radiator Springs Racers through a huge glass window, or from the patio if you opt for outdoor seating.
