Our first stop on FlaOrangeBlossom does Florida took us to Campbell’s Dairyland. This hamburger and hot dog joint has been a staple in Brandon, Fla since the mid 80s and boasts a huge menu, with an equally large dessert menu.  Don’t be fooled by its appearance, the food is really good. I ordered a regular dog with ketchup and mustard, onion rings, and a root beer. While I’ll admit I wasn’t overwhelmed with the hot dog (it’s hard to beat a good baseball dog), the onion rings are to die for. They tasted like fair food perfection and weren’t greasy. My friend ordered a hamburger which came with Ruffles chips, and ordered a chocolate/black cherry shake. You have the choice of black cherry syrup, or real cherries, he chose real cherries.  From what he said, the hamburger was amazing. I did try a sip of the milkshake. Steak and shake, step aside ;).

Unfortunately it was pouring out, so we couldn’t enjoy the outdoor seating, but they do have a few small tables inside. Outside offers much more [roomier] seating and a few old-timey playground “rides” for kids–a bicycle merry go round, some bouncy horses, and a school bus with benches.

Campbell’s Dairyland is almost always packed and has that small-town feel.
