Review: Nachos and Frozen Lemonade at Herbie’s Drive-In

Here’s another tucked away snack option for you in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

You’ll remember a couple of weeks ago when we talked about Hey Howdy Hey Takeaway in the Pixar Place area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Today, we’re taking you straight to the back of the park to find another fun spot for snacks on the go: Herbie’s Drive-In.

Herbie's Drive-in

The spot is themed after everyone’s favorite little love bug — Herbie! It even features his trademark number “53” and blue and red stripes.

The menu shows a standard list of Disney stroll and eat foods — corn dog, chili dog, a side of chili, and assorted chips and other snacks. There’s a 70s vibe here as well, with the red, white, and blue stars motif — very reminiscent of the Bicentennial celebrations.

And another cool 70s choice — you can get your Corn Dog and Chips served out of R2D2’s head!

Disney World Bakery Throw Down: Starring Rolls Cafe

Truly one of my favorite grab-and-go spots in Disney World, Starring Rolls is tiny, busy, and has some of the most delicious items I’ve ever tried, including the coveted Butterfinger Cupcake! While not technically a bakery, the shop rivals any of the other contestants with its rows of fresh and unique pastries and baked goods.

Find your way inside the small bakery and, well, by this time I’m usually already in a queue line! Grab a plate and a tray right inside the door and take your time looking at the baked goods as you make your way to the registers.

The “theme” in the bakery is pretty thin, but the art deco design and flour bags on the baker’s rack would indicate that we’re somewhere in the 20’s, 30’s, and early 40’s — Hollywood’s heyday.

Once you’ve gathered your sweets, you’ll see across from the two main registers a menu with drinks, including coffee drinks and coffee syrups, liqueurs, and wines. Yep — they have some fancy bakeries here in Hollywood!

It’s in this area that you can also order sandwiches, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves…

Eats
You’ll find delectable baked goods, bagels, huge sandwiches, fudge, and more in this unassuming little bakery, and I suggest that you try a little bit of everything! It actually is quite a versatile place to find a quick bite, but if you’re going to sample those massive cupcakes, I recommend bringing a friend! Here are the photos you’ve been waiting for… [Read more…]
