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.
This is my favorite diner and I can promise you’ll be able to find something you’ll love. Outdoor seating if you want to bring your fluffy loved ones and the staff are all very nice and friendly

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.
‘Had me surprised’
Went for lunch, sat immediately and staff was attentive and polite. The Gyro was really good, it was packed full of meat which had me surprised. Everything was hot and fresh, soup was delish and fries crunchy, will definitely be back!
1st Visit definitely deserves a repeat!!
I have been in FL for 10 years an never once have I given this place a try and I have no idea why. Tried them for takeout lunch today for the 1st time and it was AMAZING!!! Plan to go back this weekend for breakfast and hope to be just as pleased. Thank you for being a great diamond in the rough!!!
