I went in with such high hopes.... wow, this was Disneyland Classic fare. I had planned this visit for ages and finally had the chance.... I love barbecue.. Well. The place is in need of a total rework. I volunteer for the job, if they are interested. Logistically, it is out of control. There is a hostess shed just outside... More

We ate here last week and we all had a good time. The food was brought out pipping hot and the servers all worked together as a team. Our drinks were always full and if we needed anything at all the cast members made sure that we had it. They even took the requests for more chicken breasts and not... More

I can see by some of the other recent reviews that I am not the only one that does not think this is a great place to eat. This is the second time my wife and I have eaten dinner here and the second time we have been unimpressed. In both instances the service was very slow and poor. This... More

We made a reservation here for our sons birthday dinner. A little pricey but isn't everything in Disneyland a little pricey? We had a great meal and great service, there was live music which was entertaining plus the entertainer walked around and had fun with each table and identified the birthdays which was great. If you would like to eat... More

This place was fun for lunch. Everything very tasty & served in cute pewter buckets. We liked the cowboy singer. Of course the price was way more than it was worth, (as it is in any Disney restaurant), but at least the food, music & decor were good.

Make a reservation if you want to eat here. We saw group after group get turned away. The food was good. It's unlimited. Come with an appetite to make the cost worth it. Overall it was a pleasant meal and I enjoyed the chocolate Mickey cupcake they gave me for my birthday! Disney always knows how to add the perfect... More

Ordered the ribs, chicken, cornbread, beans and coleslaw. As I can not have anything with MSG, my order is being made separate to insure it is not in my food. The cook came out to speak about my dietary restrictions. The ice tea was good. The lemonade was also good. The entrees very good. Oh no.... Waiting for my special... More

We ate during lunch, which consisted of ribs and chicken, baked beans, cornbread and coleslaw... and ALL YOU CAN EAT! All you have to do is sit down, and PIG out! ;) They are constantly checking with you to see if you need more of anything and are very great hosts/hostesses. The rib meat just peels right off the bone,... More

First, this place isn't cheap. Not that I'd expect it be be, nestled into Disneyland. Service was very attentive and fun. Plus, they were incredibly knowledge about my food allergy (Celiac). The chef even came out to speak to us about what to avoid (only the bread) and had gluten free rolls prepared for us, which were excellent. The meats... More

This is a flat rate, all you can eat BBQ. But it is not a buffet. They will bring chicken and ribs to your table. Along with sides of beans, coleslaw and corn bread with honey butter. Drinks like soda and iced tea are included in the price. I can't say it was the best BBQ I've ever had, but... More
