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…]

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.

Best Restaurants for Magic Kingdom Parade Viewing

The Magic Kingdom Parade is a rite of passage for every Walt Disney World guest, and with a little planning, you can save time by dining and watching the parade at the same time!

Best Restaurants for Magic Kingdom Parade Viewing

Here are a few of my favorite ways to combine two “must-do” activities — eating and parade viewing — in the Magic Kingdom:

Casey’s Corner Outdoor Tables

Grab a Hot Dog at Casey’s
The location of Casey’s Corner, a counter-service restaurant specializing in hot dogs, is just about perfect for parade viewing. Situated on the end of Main Street right next to the hub and the Castle, the main outdoor dining area of Casey’s will provide a fantastic view of the parade floats going by.

You’ll need to snag a spot early, so head over to Casey’s about 15-30 minutes before the parade is scheduled to begin, order your food, and commandeer your red-and-white striped umbrella table. The closer you are to Main Street, the better. While crowds of people might block your view of some of the characters on the street, this is nice, shaded spot from which to see the floats. I especially like this spot for watching SpectroMagic (or the Main Street Electrical Parade). Keep your spot to watch Wishes.

If you don’t like the idea of holding a table, grab your dogs and dine while holding your spot on the curb!

…but it has the be one of the correct outdoor tables! This counter-service eatery located in Frontierland has several outdoor dining areas, but the one you want will be closest to the front door. This dining area butts up against a slatted fence, which you’ll be able to [Read more…]

You can now get Fried Chicken…with gravy…and mashed potatoes…and corn on the cob over at Pecos Bill’s in Frontierland! I’m so excited! Sounds like the perfect dinner for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, hmm…? (Jan ’10 update: Word is that the chicken fried chicken is only being served on certain days at Pecos Bill’s.)
