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.
So, yes, the burger is back (albeit changed). The fries? Not so much. The new burger is served with a side of tortilla chips. One more thing: this one’s just for the big kids, as there is no burger option listed on the Kids Menu.
There are a few more changes to note: it appears the Southwest Burger has replaced the Rice Bowl options from the menu makeover. And though Churros are still up for dessert grabs, the Sopaipillas are not.
Fortunately, though, it’s still not too late to get a Country Bears Jug to put under the tree for anyone who has been especially good this year 😉 !
For now, it seems like this is a best-of-both-worlds approach to appease disappointed guests while keeping the new cuisine focus. What’s your take on it? We’d love to hear it…
