So, when you’re looking for a fast meal at Disney World, where do you go? After all, there are a lot of Quick Service spots on the property so the choice can get a little overwhelming.

Well, don’t worry! We want to make sure you’re getting the tastiest quick-service options that the mouse has to offer so we ranked our top faves.

Here’s our countdown of the 15 best Quick Service spots at Disney World!

15. Contempo Cafe

Contempo Cafe is a dining location inside the Contemporary Resort and offers a modern and filling menu plus some seriously creative treats. Spotting the cupcakes here is always a fun surprise because they rotate, with specialty limited-time offerings arriving in the case, too!

14. Capt. Cook’s

Over at the Polynesian, you can try out Capt. Cook’s. We love this tropical-themed restaurant with its islands-inspired twist on classic meals. Plus, you can grab Dole Whip at Pineapple Lanai after your meal.

13. Casey’s Corner

Hopping into Magic Kingdom, we’d be fools to not put Casey’s Corner on the list. This classic counter is a massively popular spot to grab hot dogs and fries, and it’s right on Main Street U.S.A.

12. The Polite Pig

Over in Disney Springs, The Polite Pig makes our list! This barbecue joint really knows its meats. Come to think of it, they know their sides and sauces, too!

11. Kringla Bakeri og Kafe

World Showcase in Epcot is home to some delightful Quick Service locations like Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in Norway. The sandwiches at Kringla are tasty, but what makes this location really great are the traditional Norwegian bakery items. School Bread, here we come!


10. The Mara

The Mara is situated in Animal Kingdom Lodge and offers American classics as well as some flavors of Africa. Pretty much everything at the Mara is a good choice, and it will please your picky eaters and your more adventurous ones.

9. Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

Frontierland holds a sometimes overlooked favorite for us. Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is talkin’ about tex-mex! Grab a seat in the large dining room and have a fajita platter. Oh, but don’t forget to stop by the ample Fixins Bar.

8. Flame Tree Barbecue

Nestled in the paths of Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom is our next favorite, Flame Tree Barbecue. This is another spot where you can find some seriously good barbecue. Plus they have fries covered in pulled pork and cheese!

7. La Cantina de San Angel

Back in the World Showcase, we’re headed to Mexico for a visit to La Cantina de San Angel. We bet you didn’t think you could get authentic Mexican food in a Floridian theme park, did you? Cantina has some awesome choices!

6. The Daily Poutine

Next on our list is The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs. This stand offers classic and twisted versions of poutine (basically fries, cheese curds, and gravy). There’s usually a new version to try so we love swinging by here on the reg.

5. Ronto Roasters

Alright, we’re hitting Top Five territory so things are getting pretty serious. In Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lies the delicious Ronto Roasters. Honestly, this one would probably be higher on the list if it had more options because that Ronto Wrap is de-lish.

4. Regal Eagle Smokehouse

The newest Quick Service spot makes our list, too! Regal Eagle Smokehouse in Epcot has some crazy takes on a classic barbecue. We know, we know. There’s a lot of barbecue on this list, but can you blame us when Disney does it so well?

3. Primo Piatto

Another new Quick Service spot comes in at our number three with Primo Piatto at Riviera Resort. This location serves Italian-inspired cuisines that is absolutely delicious. Seriously, if you haven’t made a trip over to Riviera Resort yet, hop on the Skyliner right now.

2. Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie

Our runner-up of all the Quick Service restaurants in Disney World is Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in Epcot’s France! Cheese plates, soups, French beer, sandwiches, quiches, macarons, creme brulee — whew! This place has everything in our French cuisine dreams.

1. Satu’li Canteen

And the winner! Our team agrees that Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom’s Pandora is by far the best Quick Service restaurant in Disney World. Everything from the sampler to the bowls to the kids meals is positively inspired here. Maybe it helps to have some Na’vi flavors at your disposal!

  1. Nice list although I would take out Pecos Bills and Cantina and replace them with Columbia Harbour House and Tangierine Cafe.

    1. I would agree 100% and I also would say restaurant not in the parks should not count as most would find a need for quicker service in the parks sans Epcot that has many sit down options. Finlly, move Flame Tree into the top 5 hands down

  2. No Columbia Harbor House? It has delicious food, excellent seating options and is one of the only places worth going to in Magic Kingdom!

  3. Where is Tangierine Cafe? It is my favorite in Epcot. Columbia Harbour House? About the only edible fast food in the Magic Kingdom. Satu’li Cafe and I do not get along. I can’t find a dressing that complements the protein and base. I wish they had an Asian sesame dressing.

    On the flip side, Friar’s Nook in MK and Dockside Diner in the Studios rate zero starts from me. Friar’s Nook serves hot dogs and sausages that must have be cryogenically preserved since Walt was alive, on buns that probably never were actually bread. Dockside Diner is just pain dismal, hot, unattractive and the food is probably purchased from Sam’s Club.

    1. Wolfgang Puck Express for sure! We also enjoy Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory when staying at FQ.

  4. We usually stay at Pop Century, so Primo Piatto seems a great choice for dinner. Just a Skyliner ride away and better choices / options at the same price point as the Pop food court.

  5. My family loves Tangerine Cafe in Epcot!
    Also…I don’t think Hollywood Studios is on this list…and I get why!
    Disney really needs to up their game there!
