Who's ready to get sloppy? Stalwart Key West eatery Sloppy Joe's has established a northward outpost in Orlando's Icon Park, and on Monday opened the doors to their new location in the shadow of the Wheel.

A Key West institution since 1933, and almost as emblematic of the island as Hemingway's six-toed cats, the resto is known for its tropical drinks, live music and fast-casual eats.

This is the fourth Sloppy Joe's offshoot to open in Florida, joining locations in Daytona Beach, Stock Island and Treasure Island.

“We’re excited to bring the spirit of Key West to the Orlando Entertainment District,” said David Manuchia, owner of Sloppy Joe’s, in a press statement. “With its endless entertainment options and ideal location, Icon Park is the perfect home for our first Central Florida concept.”

Sloppy Joe's Orlando on International Drive is open daily.
