Welcome to Apopka
Do you know what Apopka means? If not read on….Apopka is a city in Orange County, Florida and is often referred to as the “Indoor Foliage Capital of the World” due to the extensive Greenhouse nurseries there. The earliest known inhabitants of the Apopka area were the Acuera people, members of the Timucua confederation. The Acuera were succeeded by refugees from Alabama and Georgia, who formed the new Seminole Indian tribe. They called the area Ahapopka. Aha, meaning “Potato,” and papka, meaning “eating place”.
At the conclusion of the Second Seminole War, the U.S. Congress passed the Armed Occupation Act of 1842, forcing surviving natives at Ahapopka to abandon their village and seek refuge deeper in the wilderness of the Florida peninsula.
The early American settlers built a major trading center on the foundations of the earlier Indian settlement. Their population was large enough by 1857 to support the establishment of a Masonic lodge. In 1859 the lodge erected a permanent meeting place at what is now the intersection of Main Street (U.S. Highway 441) and Alabama Avenue.
Argos Family Diner is only a hop, skip and a jump away from that historical intersection. Be sure to stop in and you will find some of the best breakfasts, lunches and dinners in town.
I had a great experience!
I got the Eggs Benedict and it was delicious. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the hollandaise sauce was so rich and creamy. My waitress Aimee was so nice and took great care of me. And her husband Christian was the one in the kitchen cooking. I love finding small family-owned businesses like this. I would highly recommend stopping here for breakfast. I had a great experience!

I’ve returned to Argos many times…
Greek diner in Apopka, Florida. Solid, clean, and prompt, honestly for the quality of the food its price point is perfect. Southern hospitality with great food = great experience. I’ve returned to Argos many times over a decade and it never disappoints. I’ve never had an issue or problem but hey your mileage may vary. I don’t go looking for problems, life works better without unnecessary friction.
Breakfast or Lunch, it’s great!
We enjoy going to Argo’s for breakfast on the weekend. Fast service and hot, delicious food. Lunch time is good, too. Rueben sandwiches, burgers, BLT’s and served with soup and a side. The Lemon Chicken soup is great.
Consistent friendly staff
One of the best family-owned diners in the area, very tasty omelettes and great Greek cooking at reasonable prices, consistent friendly staff.
No complaints at all, only compliments
If you see a guy in scrubs that’s for sure me. I come here 1-5x a week because of my schedule and I always get 5/5 service, 5/5 food, and 5/5 coffee. No complaints at all, only compliments.
