Carole Christner and David Christner
Owner (Carole) and President (David), Del Frisco's Prime Steak & Lobster
Del Frisco's Prime Steak and Lobster was opened in 1993 by Carole and Russ Christner, who licensed the name from the original Del Frisco's in Dallas. Russ passed away in 2005. Carole now runs the restaurant with her son David, who serves as President.
Carole describes Del Frisco's as a family business: "We have very little turnover because our employees are part of our family." The restaurant has been awarded The Golden Spoon, International Diamond Award, Readers' Choice Awards, eight years of "Extraordinary" rating from the International Zagat Survey and Orlando Magazine's Dining Hall of Fame Award. Zagat has also noted that Del Frisco's Prime Steak & Lobster served "the best steak at any restaurant, in any city, at any price."
