“Yum!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Dinner was fabulous, as expected. Possibly the best value in all of Disneyland - all you can eat! I loved the chicken and cornbread, my hubby loved the ribs and sausage, mmmmm. We sat with a local couple and enjoyed chatting away whilst enjoying the food - as long as you're happy being seated at the same table as others, definitely add it to your to do list whilst at Disneyland.

“Bring a healthy appetite!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We had made reservations in advance (which I would highly recommend) and arrived just at our scheduled time. We waited about ten minutes to be seated as we were sharing a table with another party. The wait staff promptly arrived at our table to take our drink orders. One of our party members is gluten free and they immediately sent out one of their Chefs to go over what she could and could not have and what could be substituted. For dinner bring a healthy appetite they serve all you can eat! Next time I will ask that they bring out more ribs and sausage, less chicken in the first bucket, as that’s what my family enjoyed the most of. We really enjoyed the coleslaw with vinaigrette versus a traditional dressing and their cornbread was scrumptious! Will definitely be dining there again!

“Not worth the Price or wait”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We were there for lunch in March during Spring Break. The service was terribly slow, when our food arrived, family style, we received just small portions of everything and when we asked for refills, they gave us huge amounts of food which inevitably went mostly to waste. Wouldn't it make more sense to reverse those servings? IMO there are far better choices for meals at Disney.

“Great spot to chow down at Disneyland”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

As southerners, we weren't sure what to think about barbeque at Disneyland. The food and service did not disappoint. Go hungry and fill up. All of the dishes were tasty, but the honey cornbread took the cake. An extra basket of cornbread ended up being our dessert for the meal. Definitely go if you want a sit down dinner while at Disneyland Park.

“OK for theme park food”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Like some of the other reviewers, this restaurant was not what I expected. First of all, I was expecting a typical restaurant setting not picnic tables under umbrella shades. If this is what I was going for I would have packed my own lunch and found an empty bench somewhere in the park. Food was nothing to rave about either, except that it was plentiful. The wait staff was very efficient and very welcoming so that is a plus at least. Caveat: smaller parties may be seated with other diners since the restaurant does "family style dining." If this is a turnoff for you, you may want to avoid this one.
