Where else can you get an all you can drink milkshake for 6.99? I was there with a party of 5; three adults and two small children. Two of us ordered the all you can eat BBQ skillet and everything on it was fabulous (ribs, chicken, sausage, pulled pork, beans, green beans, mashed potatoes, and corn bread) This was even better because kids 2 and under are allowed to eat for free off their parent's plate. The other adult in our party ordered a pork entrée, which he found decent but not especially good. The milk shakes were great. Our waitress was phenomenal - at this restaurant you need to have a sense of humor because there is definitely a schtick that the wait staff goes through. The only down side to our visit was that the second go around of the all you can eat was not as tasty as the first.

We stopped here for lunch during a tour, so we didn’t place our own order, but nonetheless we were not disappointed!! I thought the staff was some of the more delightful Disney cast we encountered, though my husband thought they were a bit annoying. We ate family-style with our tour group; a selection of BBQ ribs, chicken, sausages, pulled pork, corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. It was all delicious, and I barely had room for the delicious cobbler and ice cream served afterwards!!

All you can eat selection of ribs, beef brisket, chicken, citrus crusted fish or western sausage with side dishes offers a great variety of good food. I enjoyed the smoky flavor of the ribs although these weren't as tender as the same ribs offered at the Hoop Dee Doo Revue. The chicken quesadilla appetizer featured a smoked chicken that was quite tasty. We didn't have enough room to try the sausage or fish and cannot comment on these.

The environment is rowdy and fun. I appreciate our server being low key during our later dining hour with no children… no ketchup shouting or drink straws showering us, although both events occurred frequently all around us.

Amazing! You will get so much food that you will be overwhelmed. The food is delicious with such a great variety! The shakes are so amazing. They will send you with your desserts to go. All staff are fun and happy!

This is no whispering place! it is loud and kids will like it for the server's shenanigans and the hourly hobby horse march around the restaurant. Unique (but still a bit pricey) menu with normal entree options plus choose your own, all you can eat barbeque platters. My wife had the bison meatloaf (very good) with Yukon mashed potatoes and I had a terrific park chop entree with grits. Overlooks the lobby.
