New! Queso Blanco at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Disney’s Magic Kingdom

We have some news at the Magic Kingdom! No, our beloved plastic cheese isn’t back, but there is a new melty, cheesy goodness available at Pecos Bill’s!

If you’re not familiar, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is like a magical Chipotle serving fajitas, burritos, and rice bowls with a pretty extensive toppings bar in Frontierland. We also give it high marks for the delicious mini churros with a side of chocolate sauce!

It’s located right at the corner of Adventureland and Frontierland with a ton of indoor seating, so it’s a great place to relax and enjoy lunch — and maybe dry off after a trip through the Briar Patch at Splash Mountain!

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. [Read more…]

News! Magic Kingdom’s Diamond Horseshoe Offers Table Service Dining For a Limited Time

If you’re heading down to Walt Disney World during the busy Spring season, you’ve got another table service option in Magic Kingdom.

We’re talking about Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland!

This spot has been around forever — and shares pedigree with a similar spot, The Golden Horseshoe, in Disneyland. But in Walt Disney World, we usually only see Diamond Horseshoe open at the very busiest times of the year (think Holidays or Summer). When it is opened, it’s usually for quick service lunch. Even more rarely, you’ll find a dinner buffet. But today, we’re sharing something completely new!

From from March 13 to May 30, you can book an advance dining reservation to enjoy all-you-care-to-enjoy dining at Diamond Horseshoe for both Lunch and Dinner. [EDITOR’S UPDATE: Please note that since this article was originally published, this dining opportunity has been extended through September 10, 2016.]

This is not a buffet; the meal is served in courses, comes plated, and includes a beverage. However, you’ll be able to choose from various entrees and desserts (appetizers are standard). Here are a few more details.

Guests begin their meal with complimentary breadservice — and it’s Cornbread!!! Ah. Disney cornbread is the BEST. :-) Then your first course will be a Frontier Salad, which includes Greens, Tomatoes, Roasted Corn, and Cornbread Croutons. Chipotle Ranch Dressing completes the plate. [Read more…]

Of course, that’s not the whole story… not by a long shot. River Belle Terrace has quite the history in Disneyland, existing under its current name since 1971 (and the location itself operated under other names from the park’s first year). [Read more…]

Get ‘em Before They’re Gone! Ice Cream Nachos at Disneyland’s Golden Horseshoe

Have a hankerin’ for some Ice Cream Nachos?!?

Of course you do! I mean, really… who doesn’t? But where can a Disneyland guest score some, since they’re not showing up on any menus these days? Well, just like days of yore, you CAN still grab them — at least for now — at The Golden Horseshoe.

You see, all the components of the ice cream nachos are still in the house: mint chocolate chip, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream along with hot fudge, strawberry sauce, chocolate chips, whipped cream and cherries served together on a bed of waffle “chips”… all courtesy of the three Waffle Cup Sundaes that remain on the everyday menu.

News: Burgers (Well, One) Back on the Menu at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

If your holiday wish list included the opportunity to eat a BURGER at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe once more…

… then, BOOM!! Your wish is granted!

Long heralded as a favorite place to grab a burger and fries in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland, Pecos Bill’s caused quite a stir when an all-new menu featuring Mexican fare debuted this past October.

Gone were the familiar Angus Cheeseburger, Veggie Burger, and Barbecue Pork Sandwiches, and suddenly in their place were Burritos, Faijta Platters, and Rice Bowls. (The famous Fixin’s Bar, of course, stayed well in place, though with a spread better suited for the updated fare.)

Though it seems the new menu has been met with more than a few thumbs up, many guests were disappointed to learn that burgers were no longer on the menu.

Until now, that is! With many thanks to DFB Reader Jenny H. for the heads up, we can report that a brand new burger is now up for grabs at Pecos Bill’s: The Southwest Burger, topped with Pepper Jack cheese. [Read more…]

Review: New Menu at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!

Editor’s Note: Burgers had previously been removed from the Pecos Bill menu altogether, but a new burger, the Southwest Burger, has recently been added. Also, rice bowls aren’t currently available.

Howdy hey there! After being closed for a few days, Pecos Bill Tale Tall Inn and Cafe is back up and running with a completely new menu!

News: New Menu Coming to Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Disney World

Wondering what’s up in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland while Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is currently closed for a three-day refurbishment?

Well, we already have a glimpse of what changes will be revealed when it reopens tomorrow, October 1st… because an ALL-NEW MENU has been posted on the Walt Disney World website!

That’s right… this former favorite-place-to-grab-a-burger for many Magic Kingdom guests has entirely revamped the menu, now focused on Mexican fare, as opposed to the previous burgers, BBQ sandwiches, and side items like Chili-Cheese Fries.

The next time you mosey on in to pay a visit to Pecos Bill, you’ll see Fajita Platters, Burritos, Rice Bowls, and Salads on the menu.

Let’s get right to it!

Starting with the entree choices: Fajita Platters — with either beef or chicken — seem to be the star entree, and Burritos have a presence as well. All are served with Cilantro Rice and Beans, something we’re already familiar with from Tortuga Tavern (a seasonally-open Counter Service restaurant, which is also currently rumored to be facing a menu change of its own). Beef, Chicken, and Roasted Vegetable Rice Bowls, along with a couple of variations on a Southwest Salad round out the entree choices.

Located in between Big Thunder Mountain and the Shooting Gallery, Rancho Del Zocalo is a counter service restaurant offering up Mexican cuisine in the wild wild west of Disneyland.
