Eat N Wash in Orlando combines a car wash with a seafood/barbecue restaurant

Updated: Mar 5

ORLANDO, FL - Eat N Wash combines two things that may not seem like they go together: a car wash and a seafood/barbecue restaurant.

But think back to the last time you had a hand-washed car wash. How long did it take? Wouldn't that time have gone by much faster if you were chowing down on a plate of boiled shrimp?

In 2012, owner Donald Strickland, known as "The Shrimp Man," took his love for seafood and mixed it with a car wash business. It's been a success ever since. (Follow "ShrimpMan00" on Instagram)

Eat N Wash, on West Church Street in Orlando near John Young Parkway, specializes in crab, shrimp, fish and low-country boil. Chicken, burgers, wings, mac and cheese, greens and other soul food items are also on the menu.

(Side note: I've had a lot of shrimp in my life, and the Shrimp Combo Plate at Eat N Wash is the best shrimp I've ever had.)
