When I’m hungry, one of the best places to get a fast meal but plenty of food is Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café. They describe themselves as the “Best Grub in the West” and the food is in fact, pretty good. On the large side there are the 1/3 pound Angus Burgers with Cheese, and the Deluxe Burgers with even more toppings including bacon, onion rings and sauce. But on the Deluxe Burger, you better be hungry and have plenty of napkins. In fact, cutting the sandwich in half is a wise idea. And there is plenty of cheese and BBQ sauce around.
Physically it’s a pretty large place, with plenty of seating. There are lots of decorations and great theming taking you back to the old west and to the Disney cartoons which are the restaurant’s namesake. When you are looking for a table, keep walking around since you are likely to find one with the various rooms around the building. It can get a little crazy during it’s busiest times, so as we normally recommend, don’t eat when everyone is. It’s a little dark inside, but not bad, and it has several entrances plus some outdoor seating.
Taking up much of that room is the condiments and fixings area were you can not only add to the size and bulk of your burger, but also grill your mushrooms and onions to order. I always like making burgers my way, and this is the place to do it. A more recent addition, that is a little less “old west” and more “high teach” are computer kiosks for ordering.
The menu overall is pretty straight-forward, with different combination meals as the entrees. And for Disney, the prices are among the most reasonable.
The side dishes include at least one that is meal in itself, the Chili-Cheese Fries at $4.49, but you can also buy each separately, and also Yogurt ($1.99) and Carrot or Chocolate Cake ($3.59). There are Kids meals that include carrot sticks, grapes and drink (milk, water or apple juice) to go along with a Hamburger or Salad with Chicken for $4.99. Beverages are typical for a counter service site, prices between $2-3 each.
Resort-wide Disney is getting pretty fancy with its burgers, or as the Disney Parks Blog refers to them, “designer burgers”. Some photos of the newest 1/3 pounders were recently posted… http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2011/0...ners-burgers-are-a-hit/.
