Review: Bite-Size Churros from Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Magic Kingdom

Who’s up for some CHURROS?

We sure are! (Then again, when aren’t we?!) So our Magic Kingdom stop today is Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Frontierland!

Perhaps you were expecting a visit to the Frontierland Churro Cart or the Storybook Pretzel Cart? Fret not, you can still find them there, along with Mickey Pretzels and cold drinks to wash down your snack of choice. But when the menu at Pecos Bill’s underwent a complete change from burgers-and-fries to Mexican fare, Churros suddenly appeared as a dessert option here as well (along with some no-longer-available Sopaipillas).

The take is a bit different, though, at the Tall Tale Inn, so we’re here to have a peek… and a bite or two, of course ;) .

Here we go!

Of course, Churros have been a long-time favorite of ours (and possibly yours, too). They’re a go-to snack for many guests in both Disney World and Disneyland. So it wasn’t a huge surprise to spot Churros on the updated Pecos Bill menu.

What was less expected, perhaps, is the style in which they’re served.

Just as a reminder, a typical churro is a single-serve stick.

Here at Pecos Bill’s they’re mini churros! And they taste every bit as delicious — fried to a nice crisp on the outside and coated in cinnamon sugar. I counted ten of them in my order (and methinks they actually add up to be a little more than a typical Churro as well as a slightly larger batch compared to the Churro Bites I was served at Cozy Cone Motel in Disney California Adventure).

A side of Milk Chocolate Dip comes with your order to add a little extra sweetness, if you prefer. (The Chocolate Dipper is sold separately at the Churro Carts for a buck, so the inclusion here means that the $4.99 price tag at Pecos Bill’s is equal to what you would pay for a regular-sized churro with the dipping sauce added).

Though small, they have the same crunchy outside and chewy inside that you would expect.

The bite-sized presentation makes these a great option for sharing, and you get just a wee bit more of that famous cinnamon sugar, since each piece is individually coated. Plus you’ve got the the handy option for an air-conditioned and storied setting inside the Tall Tale Inn. So grab a seat, or take a batch along to continue your Frontierland stroll. Either way, it’s a tasty way to sweeten up your visit!

    I’ve never had a churro, so I would def want to try these. Plus, I’ve been wanting to visit this resort!

    The chocolate dipper served at Pecos is actually a different and much better chocolate than the one at the carts : ) The chocolate at the carts is what should be a good homemade chocolate but unfortunately its not.

  3. Veronica says

    As a person who is quite familiar with how a freshly made and authentic churro should taste, I can say that these don’t even come close. They’re a poor substitute for what a real churro is. And unfortunately, even the chocolate wasn’t all that great. I wish they had another dessert option.

    These look delicious! We haven’t been to Pecos Bills in while, but I like the new items on their menu and think we’re going to have to give them a try next time we’re there. Thanks for all of your reviews, we have definitely enjoyed way better food since we started reading your blog!
