We enjoyed the lunch which served ribs, chicken, sweet corn bread with almond butter, baked beans & coleslaw.

While at Disneyland we did have lunch here. I was not impressed with this one. And as a huge fan of all things Disney it was a disappointment. The food was ok, plain and simple, not much taste. Certainly nothing special.

This is one of our favorites when we go to Disneyland. We've always had great service, good food and a great value. This time the service wasn't the perfect/excellent service we usually get. Hopefully that was just a hiccup. Also, I remember the entertainment performing more often. We were there during peak season on a weekend and we only saw... More

The overall price is expensive, but you're in Disneyland. So compared to the $6 hot dog the price isn't that bad. The service is quick the atmosphere is nice and relaxed. Nice place to hang out with the family and have a relaxed meal.

Book this early. Grab a late lunch here, and fill up,for the entire day. If you are a true disney freak, and try to get the full day of value, which can be 16 hours if you are game...start the day with a bagel, or something small at the main gate or in downtown Disney...reserve a spot here for 2...

So yummy but make sure you make reservations early in the day or you will be out. We had a very long and hot day at Disneyland and we were all starving. Around 6ish we went to see if we could get a table at the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ and they said all of their reservations were full. We... More

All you can eat BBQ!!! This is delicious and in a beautiful setting. The ribs are to die for and the beans and corn bread are amazing as well. The main perk...all you can drink soda pop!!!

This place is GREAT! Loved that lunch is all you can eat; for the price, you get a lot of food. If I remember correctly, it was around $23/person for lunch, but considering the prices inside Disneyland for meals, it really is a steal for all you can eat. The food was hot, fresh, and the staff was attentive. I... More

We made reservations online for our first lunch visit! Arrived early and was greeted and seated immediately! Shared our table with a very friendly family and enjoyed some tasty BBQ! The BBQ was all you can eat, chicken, ribs, beans, coleslaw, cornbread, and your choice of drink! Priced higher than most but well worth while! Highly recommend but hurry, Disney... More

Wow, what delicious barbecue! I have been vegetarian for two years. I could not resist trying the chicken and spare ribs when my family tucked in. It was amazing! Lol Had some ribs and chicken. Went back to vegetarian afterwards and have not eaten meat since July. Need I say more about hoe wonderful the food in this place is?... More
