I cannot rave more about Walt Disney World. I am the ultimate fan. However, if there is something the Magic Kingdom could work on, it is its food. I read many reviews preparing for our Disney Vacation, and while much of the food in the park was discouraged, Pecos Bills was well-reviewed. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Add it to the list of underwhelming, over-priced food at the Magic Kingdom.

While the fixing bar IS impressive, even good fixings cannot save a bad burger. The burgers here are dry dry dry and tasteless. The ordering station is chaotic, and the options are limiting. I had also read in almost every book and blog than one could order a double cheeseburger and just get an extra bun for about a dollar more, and when asked about the “secret” the clerk dismissed my request, quite rudely. Most Disney employers bend over backwards for good service! We will not go back to Pecos Bills, and we will not recommend it.

Pros:

rude counter service. dry, Bland, boring, over-priced food.

Cons:

almost everything - It was convient to sightseeing

Pecos Bills, for all intents and purposes is a replica of Cosmic Rays (from over in Tomorrowland) except set to a western theme. Really that's all it is. However, the one difference I can pick out is that it has better burgers there than Cosmic Rays has. Everything else is basically the same offerings at the same quality and for the same price.

Pros:

Great burgers.

Cons:

None

Food was good, DD 10 had taco salad, I had bacon cheeseburger. the fixings bar is the best.
Would have given a 10, but there were two problems. The CM indicated there was no cheese on the burger that you got that at the fixings bar, which is incorrect, the burger comes with american cheese, which my daughter has an intollerance to. the desserts are standard QS fare, and unimpressive.

Pros:

Food, fixings bar

Cons:

misinformed by CM, dessert

I know Pecos Bill is really just a fast food joint, but it has become one of our favorite WDW traditions to eat there. Burgers are great, love the fixin' bar, including being able to get cheese for the fries, portions are large. Only downside is that it is always crowded, but finding a table is generally possible.

Pros:

Burgers, Fixin' Bars, Fries

Cons:

Crowd

It was 6pm and apparently this was the only quick service place in Magic Kingdom open for dinner so we were stuck eating here. The lines were not really that long (maybe four people ahead of us) but it easily took half an hour to order and get our food. And we ordered salads!
Mine was close to inedible - it came with chicken and it was an overcooked dry chicken breast that was not even sliced. I had to slice it myself which was really hard seeing as it was in a salad. My friend's salad came with chicken that was pre-sliced and not nearly as dried out.
Would not recommend this place to anyone, unless you are stuck for a place to eat, as we were.

Pros:

They served food

Cons:

The food was terrible, and so was the service

This is a quick service restaurant located near the border of Adventureland and Frontierland and is one of the largest quick service restaurants at Magic Kingdom.
The burgers are large and very tasty and the food was served very fast considering how busy they are. (if you get a chance to look in the back where the food is prepared...it is neat to watch the "assembly line" action of filling orders.). The fixins bar is a really great addition and allows you to build your sandwich the way you want to. My wife got a Taco Salad and, with the exception of the meat and shell which they give you, you build it yourself.

The one negative is the seating area. Due to the popularity of the restaurant and the location (where a lot of people evidently decide to try and stop to rest without buying). THey have "seating hosts" who will have you wait until your entire party is through the lines (and fixins bar) and then seat you at a table of their choosing. (for a large party, it can mean standing there with your tray for quite a while while your food gets cold.) Then if you have to leave the seating area (for restrooms or something off the fixins bar for example,) you are given the third degree upon your return. (almost acting as if you are lying that you were already seated.) There HAS to be a better system.

But the food outweighs the "Table Security Guards" so I highly reccommend this as a Quick Service restaurant for Disney visits.

Pros:

Very good burgers and great fixins bar.

Cons:

Seating "hosts" act more like Security Force than hosts.

The food was good as usual, but was upset the order was wrong, my daughter has a food intolerance, and I asked for no cheese on my burger, it had to be re-made because the original had cheese. Service was slow, 5 orders were served in the line next to us before one order came out of our line.

Pros:

Good food, fixings bar

Cons:

Order was wrong, line next to us served 5 orders before ours was filled.

Pecos Bills has always been a favorite spot to stop of ours and it didn't disappoint the last week of March 2014. The toppings bar is great! However, I do wish the meat in the taco salad actually looked more like beef instead of mush, but in saying that, the taco salad was very very good.

My husband and son however, didn't care much for being stopped on the way to find a table and were told they had to wait for the rest of their party. It was kinda ridiculous. Disney needs to somehow change this.

Pros:

Fixin's Bar

Cons:

"Security Hosts"

You can always get a good Hamburger at Pecos. The desserts aren’t worth writing home about though. They give the same premade Chocolate or Carrot Cake that you can get in every park. Also they have a very limited menu, it‘s mostly just burgers and salads. It does have a great and huge U shaped toppings bar that they put opposite the main counter.

I love the Atmosphere, it looks like a Wild West saloon on the left side. There’s also a section that looks like a Mexican courtyard on the right, this where I like to sit. It has a small fake patio on the wall and a tiny fountain in the corner. The seats are a bit weird though, their more of a cushioned stool then a chair. They give no back support, so you feel a little hunched over. I enjoy the dimmed lights that’s throughout most of the restaurant though, it really relaxes my eyes.

I always enjoy going to this place, even if the menu is a bit limited.

Pros:

Hamburgers, Toppings Bar, Atmosphere

Cons:

Menu, Desserts
