The most awesome BBQ chicken and ribs, beans, slaw and cornbread. All you can eat. For only $24.99 (lunch price). There was no better value at Disneyland. Mix this with the most amazingly friendly staff and the free live entertainment and you just couldn't go...More

We had the best time--great food and plenty of it and a wonderful family who shared our picnic table. They shared their enormous dessert with us. Hope they can find somewhere to put this restaurant in the future.

One of the funniest and finest places to visit. The ambiance, the service and even the musical performers made this place special and magical. I do hope they reconsider and movie this eatery to another location instead of retiring it.

Loved the ribs and the chicken, and the show was fantastic. Great place to sit back and enjoy the meal...just don't plan to ride Thunder Mountain Railroad afterwards
