Some of the dining experiences at Walt Disney World are beyond amazing. Yes, this is part of what makes Disney magical. Some of the best restaurants around can be found at the monorail resorts near Magic Kingdom. However, the food within Magic Kingdom is not always magical with choices often being between poor to average options. Adding pain to this issue is that Magic Kingdom dining can be a bit pricey.
What if you just want to sit down to some basic no-frills fast-food style dining?
Do you like fast food Mexican?
If so, the long-standing Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café is a safe choice. This restaurant is located in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland and features nachos, tacos, fajitas, and other Mexican variations. There are also burgers on the menu so beware.
Since National Taco Day is upon us this October 4th, I will focus on the taco trio.
This entrée is a cost-effective option which gives you three tacos topped with standard items such as lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese for only $10.99. That is a good deal in theme park currency.
You can get three reasonably sized tacos with any combination of ground beef, chicken, pork, or spicy breaded cauliflower.
These tacos are not the best around. They are not even the best tacos at an Orlando area theme park for $10.99. However, they are a good value. They do not come with any sides though.
Historically, the three reasons to visit Pecos Bill were the indoor seating, Mexican style food, and the extensive topping bar. However, the topping bar has yet to return so some of the overall appeal of this counter service place is lessened.
Despite that, the flavor of the meat options (cannot reliably verify cauliflower option-sorry) is good but not great. This trio is easily better than standard fast-food tacos. The toppings tend to be above average but nothing special. This location and entrée are primarily designed for picky eaters and/or families with smaller children.
If I found myself in a theme park wanting quick service taco, this would not be a bad option. Considering the price point, I would have more money for a Mickey Pretzel later to add to my theme park experience. Maybe you will also.
