Like I said yesterday, the WDW Main Street crew recorded a phenomenal show a few weeks back called …
Episode #361 – Underrated and Overrated Restaurants!
Please go back and listen. They did a great job and stirred up a lot of conversation!
Of course, I felt the need to weigh in with our opinions, so, in my last post, I covered our overrated spots. Take a look back.
Same as the Main Street boys, I ruffled quite a few feathers! Hey! There are a lot of Raglan Road and ‘Ohana fans out there!
Now that I’ve stirred you up with our “critiques”, however, let’s go to a more positive place. Let’s talk Underrated WDW Restaurants!
Captain’s Grille –
I have to start here. Why? Well, I’ve said it over and over … the Captain serves my very favorite dish on property – Cabernet-braised Short Rib with Sweet Corn Risotto.
Look at it! It’s as good as anything on property, folks! Trust me!
Due to refurbishments, Captain’s Grille has been relocated, until this Fall, to a temporary home in Ariel’s at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Great news, though, everyone. The short rib is on the menu!
Whispering Canyon –
On the show, the guys talked about Walt Disney World BBQ, but I didn’t hear reference to this wonderful feast! Much better than ‘Ohana, by the way.
Mrs. All in WDW and I have visited “the canyon” countless times over the last few years. It’s very good!
Look. We don’t profess to be BBQ experts, but I have to say … this feast is as good as any BBQ we’ve had. Fall off the bone ribs. Tender pork. Great smoked sausage. Worth a visit!
I know. I know. A bowling alley? I’ve written about Splitsville many times since it opened. I swear the sushi is the best I have ever had on property.
In fact, whether it’s sushi, a burger, or a pizza, this up-scale alley serves it all. And, it’s all delicious!
Kona Cafe –
Mrs. All in WDW summarized it best … “I didn’t like Kona in the beginning. But, now, I’m happy to go there for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.”
For my part, I’d much rather have a more peaceful, enjoyable experience choosing from amongst the variety of items on Kona’s menu …
… as opposed to enduring the crushing throng that descends on ‘Ohana twice a day.
Yak & Yeti Restaurant –
This’ll make Doug Davis smile. We really enjoy the Animal Kingdom’s Yak & Yeti. Yes, Doug. You did steer us right once again!
For both appetizers and meals, we’ve found this spot to be a great place for Mrs. All in WDW and I to take a quick break … or to meet up with friends!
That’s it! These five venues are our Most Underrated WDW Restaurants! What do you think?
Hey! How about you? What are your Overrated and Underrated WDW dining establishments? Keep the conversation going, and let us all know!
A favorite at Animal Kingdom “was” Flame Tree Barbque. Until last trip in May. Pulled pork sandwich had “pork pulled out” & replaced with slaw that was on the side. And don’t get me started on the onion rings they serve now. Ate there every visit since opening. Gonna scratch that off my list.
So sad to hear that! Maybe they were having a bad day? Thanks for the feedback.
Would have agreed with you about Kona until the menu changed. I will miss the pan fried chicken.
As long as they still have the Asian Noodles with Chicken, it’ll stay on my list. Having said that, if they ever take that away …
