When visiting Magic Kingdom, we often find ourselves sloughing through the park towards the delicious smell of Tex-Mex cuisine. Located in the heart of Frontierland, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn is a spacious refuge for hungry Disney Guests in search of a quick and tasty meal.
What Land is Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café In?
Mosey on over to Frontier land, and right before you take a spin on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, hitch your horse to the Old West Saloon. Inside, you’ll find the family-friendly quick-service restaurant serving up Texas-style grub to feed your trail party. After dining in the spacious air-conditioned rooms, head next door to see the Country Bear Jamboree, a Magic Kingdom opening day attraction.
Still hungry? Get to the churro cart across the “street” and watch the barges float over to Tom Sawyer Island while you enjoy classic Theme Park cinnamon sugar!
What to Order at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café
Disney tells us to “Rustle up some grub” and we’re listening. We highly advise stopping by to see Bill’s Inn and Café to “tell tall tales over chicken fajitas, southwest salad, and the bacon cheeseburger — all before riding off into the sunset to the taste of sweet treats like mini churros with dipping chocolate.”
Disney has been working on this large quick-service restaurant for some time, from its construction updates prior to Magic Kingdom’s 50th birthday to the menu overhaul that occurred a few years ago. The long-standing tradition of Pecos Bill’s is one we recommend visiting!
No matter if you’re on the long trip of your dreams or a short vacation, saving some cash is always welcome. Among the most affordable meals at Walt Disney World Resort, where family-friendly fare is on the menu, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn is a winner. You won’t need Disney Dining Reservations for this hot spot, though we do recommend using Mobile Order when available. These Mexican-inspired plates can be incredibly popular.
Adult meals are more true to the Tex-Mex theming, but with inclusive options for picky eaters like Cheeseburgers, “The Big Al” Double Bacon Cheeseburger (a nod to the next door Country Bear Jamboree), and Beef Nachos.
Also on the menu are the beloved Fajita Platter ($14.99), Pork or Chicken Carnitas Bowls, Chicken Nachos, Southwest Salads with protein choices, or Taco Trios. For the 50th anniversary, the 1971 meal of Beef Nachos, yellow rice, a drink, and a cake pop dessert is offered for $19.71.
Most patrons at this Frontierland establishment go for the Beef Nachos ($10.99) or the Fajita Platter, both served with toppings, sour cream, and salsa. You’ll want to order a soft drink or water to wash down all this flavor, as combo meals here do not include them. Keep in mind that cups of water are available for free, compared to a small Dasani bottled water for over $3.
Vegan options and allergy-friendly meals are easy to order here. Simply ask the Cast Member at the door for an allergy-friendly menu and choose which one suits you best. You may have to wait a few extra minutes for your meal, but we promise it’s worth it!
Lastly, we must mention the toppings bar. Many years ago, before the menu overhaul, this toppings bar beside the registers offered unlimited cheese dip, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, jalapenos, roasted corn salsa, and other delicious options. When the cheese dip and guac vanished from the free toppings bar, Guests were visibly upset, but thankful that the simpler options remained.
Prices at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn
Meals and combos at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn will run you $14.99 or less for an adult. The Disney Dining Plan, when it was active, was accepted by this establishment and served as one quick-service meal credit.
Of course, there are child meals available for between $6 and $8 per person. These meals include an entrée, drink (such as 1 Mickey Milk), and choice of two sides, which is a great deal. Oftentimes, these sides are individually packaged, so families can pack one up for on-the-go snacking later. A kid’s Cheeseburger, Pork Carnitas Bowl, Chicken Rice Bowl, Mac N Cheese, or PB&J Uncrustable choices are available. Sides often consist of fruit or black beans, guacamole, or tortilla chips.
Once you’ve ordered and picked up your meal, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn has a plethora of seating options with air conditioning. Over three dining rooms downstairs offer tables with movable chairs to customize your family’s needs. Take the ramp-up to the upstairs dining area for even more room and a roomy exit to Adventureland’s Tortuga Tavern, where more magic awaits.
There are no waiters here, so please take your own trash to the receptacles.
