Tortuga Tavern — a seasonally open restaurant in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland, located across from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and themed as a hangout for pirates to grab some grub and grog, previously featured Mexican fare such as Burritos and Rice Bowls.
However, those options — along with a few new dishes such as Fajitas — moved over to Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe earlier this month, replacing the burger-and-barbeque eats the popular counter service spot was known for.
So, what’s a pirate haunt whose menu has been plundered to do but debut a new menu all its own? Beginning tomorrow, October 14th, Tortuga Tavern will reopen with a barbecue-focused menu.
Options will include a Pulled Pork Sandwich served on Texas Toast with Baked Beans and Coleslaw for sides.
Side items and bread remain the same with the Sliced Beef Brisket and Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwiches.
A Roasted Corn and Vegetable Salad with vinaigrette dressing provides a vegetarian option (though barbecue beef brisket or chicken may be added to the salad option as well).
Please note: Tortuga Tavern will retain its status as a seasonal restaurant, so availability will vary. But we do know the big barbecue debut will take place tomorrow, October 14th. Though hours can vary, typically Tortuga Tavern operates from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on the days it is open.
So… AAAAARRRRR ye ready for some barbecue, mateys?
