Located on Sunset Boulevard, Rosie’s All-American Cafe at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a counter service joint serving up — you guessed it! — American style eats amidst World War II-inspired decor. In the past this place has been one of my least favorite counter service spots. But recently…there have been some changes!
Updated menu items include a Fried Green Tomato Sandwich…and this awesome and amazing new snack that’s been added to the menu!
Since Rosie’s dishing up eats in the shadow of Tower of Terror and is a convenient spot to grab a snack, we were pretty excited to try something new-ish from her kitchen: Onion Straws with Texas Petal Sauce.
We say new-ish because the Onion Straws have been available as a side on Mobile Ordering for a while, but since they weren’t on the posted menu at the counter, most guests didn’t even know they were an option!
But they’re here — and we’re digging the savory straws, which, if we’re being honest, are somewhere between straw and petal thickness.
Inside is sweet onion fried nicely in batter. Seriously, these are exactly what you want and expect from an onion straw/petal dish! And thankfully they tasted freshly prepared; no heavy greasiness with these, which is welcome in the Florida heat.
The Texas Petal Sauce is standard fare — like the straws themselves — but we say that’s a good thing!
At $3.29 (or a snack credit!), this is a big portion and a great way to stretch out the time between meals if you’re looking to do that. Plus, we’re happy to have a tasty savory snack option in a World that’s saturated (happily so!) with sweet treats.
