Not worth the price of a meal

Your going to pay for the magic side of the eating experience. $15.00 meals is about the cheapest. It smells old and musty, and right now they have a mouse problem because of the construction next door. Once is enough for the visit and I more then likely wouldn't return.

Our first visit to this place and the staff and employees really made it special. It was definitely the right kind of weird for my family! Glenda, our good witch server, was a thorough delight, and the random visits from the other characters kept the entertainment level high! The food was a bit pricey for regular visits, but the quality... More

We've been here before but found our visit today to be a mess. As they take no reservations we started with a 2 plus hour wait in the well worn lobby. The waiter was obviously distracted and the experience was less than expected. Food was lack luster despite the high prices. Would suggest spending your money and time at a... More

Kids were running all over getting autographs from the waitstaff and we're having lots of fun. It is not much fun for anyone older than elementary school. Your fun will be directly dependent upon how much your waiter/waitress gets into their character. Ours was Nacho Libre and he definitely got into character so we enjoyed him. Food was okay, nothing... More

Step into the magical world of make believe! Then enjoy excellent food served by a character from your imagination. Your visit to the 'Salad Car'...not a misprint, will be memorable. A great place for kids, or the kid in all of us!!

We were in Texas on business, but some of our local friends recommended this place. Despite the reviews we had read, we decided to meet them there for dinner. The wait was FOREVER and the service was poor. We had the "Riddler" and quite frankly, he was not very kid appropriate (our friends had children). The salad bar was subpar... More

First of all this is a kid friendly restaurant and catered to them. We pulled in here because I came as a child and had to try it again. Food was average but the service was fun and light hearted! Good retro place for adults and fun place to take kids.

You could be greeted and seated by Marilyn Monroe or some other blast from the past. Then, your waiter/waitress, maybe Aladdin, Cinderella, Katniss, Death Pool, etc. will sweep in to take your drink order and lead you to the salad car. We were seated in the map booth, but the variety of seating options is endless (lunch box, pumpkin, lovers'... More

Keep telling yourself, we are here for the kids...not the food...or us (the adults). Our kids (6 and 3) absolutely LOVED this restaurant. Minnie Mouse was our waitress and we saw Woody, Cinderella, Prince Charming, Aladdin and more stop by and signed autographs on the cards we were given when we first walked in. It definitely needs updating, we sat... More

After reading reviews on here, I was nervous about going for my first visit. My inlaws have gone to the San Antonio location several times and recommended this place for my kids. The restaurant was old and grimey feeling, but that is part of it's charm. Prince Charming and Cinderella waited on us equally and were great! The Magician was... More
