Restaurants on HWY192 Kissimmee (West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway)
The 192 has always been the fun highway of Kissimmee. To ensure the area did not grow in a haphazard manner, over a decade ago, the Chamber of Commerce decided to spend over $23 million dollars beautifying the area, adding Disney inspired landscaping and road improvements.
To aid navigation the 15 mile stretch running east from U.S. Route 27 (HWY27) was divided into 1 mile segments and ornate mile markers erected and whilst the improvements run from Marker 4 to 12 in the east it was the eastern portion, around Kissimmee, where most of the activity centered, with the west end being mainly undeveloped apart from a few old favourites like the Golden Corral, Carrabba's Italian Grill and The Olive Garden.
Over this period most of the new holiday home development has been in the west either south of the 192 or along Route 27. With this increased traffic the need for more facilities has resulted in an explosion of development in the 2 to 3 mile stretch of the road around marker 4 to marker 6, with the number of restaurants exceeding 50.
No longer do you have to go up to International Drive to visit Bahama Breeze or LongHorn Steakhouse. Lots of the well-known chains now have a restaurant here too, plus there is now a Super Target, Wal Mart and West Gate Flea Market open, possibly making this the fastest growing area in Florida.
Over 50 Restaurants on HWY192 in Kissimmee between Mile Marker 4 & 6
From Around Mile Marker 4 to Mile Marker 6 there are over 50 restaurants. More restaurants have opened on this stretch of the 192 in the last couple of years than the rest of the 15 mile stretch of the Highway.
Most of the restaurants on our list start from the junction where the SR429 Toll road meets HWY192 going East.
If you are staying on HWY27 in Davenport or near Champions Gate the best way to get to these restaurants is via I4 East and then take SR429 North at Exit 60 (Toll Road). Once on the SR429 come off at Exit 6 (Kissimmee), then turn right and you are at the start of all the restaurants. You should see Hooters directly in front of you.
The 192 runs from HWY 27 in the West right the way through to Melbourne on the East Coast. For most of its route, US 192 is the Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, named after former state representative, senator and cattleman Irlo O. Bronson, Sr. It is also known as Space Coast Parkway, as it leads to the Space Coast.
