Food-loving visitors to Orlando, Florida are sure to find ample opportunities to taste many cuisines at various prices, from chain theme eateries to high-end restaurants.

The challenge comes from figuring out how to fit everything in one stomach. Here are some of the top spots for hungry adventurers in Orlando:

Latest: What's Your Favorite Type of Vacation? Relaxing or Exploring?

1. B.B. King's Blues Club: One of three locations is in Orlando. Chow down on Southern comfort inspired by flavors from Memphis, the Mississippi delta, and New Orleans, including authentic Memphis-style barbeque. Diners will enjoy the live music of the "B.B. King All Star Band," as they belt out hits from King and many other legends.

2. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville: This musician-themed restaurant is located in the center of Universal Orlando CityWalk, and contains a margarita-filled volcano. The restaurant is "a state of mind," according to the website.

Enjoy a Cheeseburger in Paradise and know there's always a chance of a surprise performance from the legendary musician himself.

3. Chatham's Place Restaurant: The eatery claims it's "where the locals eat" because they "always feel welcome." With an extensive wine list and a 12-ounce filet mignon priced at $76, expect a lighter wallet by dessert.

4. The Ravenous Pig: Though relatively new — it opened in October 2007 — The Ravenous Pig and its chef-owners James and Julie Petrakis, have received national praise for their culinary creations inspired by local, seasonal ingredients.

If Canaveral Shrimp 'n Grits, Pork Porterhouse, Gruyere Biscuits, Steak Frites, and Pig Tails with Chocolate Espresso Sauce sound good, expect satisfied taste buds.

5. Cask & Larder: The self-described "Southern Public House" opened in the 1920s and remains a friendly neighborhood tavern with free-flowing made-on-site beers. The term "larder" refers to an area that once stored meats and fish, generally the coldest room of a house.

Like its sister restaurant, The Ravenous Pig, Cask & Larder, located in nearby Winter Park, Florida, offers Southern-inspired seasonal dishes.

6. Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant: A popular restaurant in downtown Orlando, Tapas offers casual small plates and Sangria, and is known for authentic Spanish dishes like Serrano ham, tortilla Espanola, albondigas (meatballs spiced with cumin), and bacalao fritters, among other items. As a bonus, flamenco shows are staged on Friday and Saturday nights.

7. Luma on Park: Also in nearby Winter Park, this nearly 10-year-old restaurant boasts Sir Paul McCartney as one of its customers. Local Florida seafood such as Cape Canaveral sword fish and Apalachicola oysters regularly appear on the menu.

8. Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe: The world-renowned chef has brought his culinary skills to Orlando. The menu is littered with selections inspired by Puck's special touch, including artisanal pizzas, seasonal entrees and classic pastas. In addition to the grand cafe, Puck's Bistro is located at Universal CityWalk.
