You're pulled in by the neon, but you realize soon enough that Flo's V8 Cafe is one of the most down-home and decent places to eat a throwback meal in all of Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom. This is the kind of food your mom was being fed by her mom way back then, when do-wop was the bee's knees and Elvis was just being discovered. Think mashed potatoes with a well dug out for the gravy. Turkey served with peas and carrots from a time before peas and carrots were considered the squarest of the square. Yes, this is what TV dinners looked when they were actually homemade dinners people ate. The best dish is the roast beef, draped in thick gravy as brown as the Earth. You also want the BBQ beans with it, and some roasted corn niblets with actual char. Wash it down with a Coke and then an apple pie-thing baked with Cheddar cheese that seems to have been resurrected from an old copy of Joy of Cooking.
