    We've eaten counter service meals there twice, at ABC Commisiary and at the Studio Catering Company and haven't been impressed

    I just never know where to eat when we go to that park!

    We had a nice lunch, nothing spectacular, at Hollywood & Vine, and Im guessing the other restaurants are similar, so, not really worth the money they cost. But then thinking about counter service options, and they are even worse hahahaha :lol:

    Im stuck!

    We tried to leave to go to Beaches N Cream last time we were there, but the kids didnt want to leave the park, so something right there would be best

    HS is my least favorite park in terms of dining. We usually go to pizza planet for our counter meal. When I was there in August I had a beer at the outdoor bar near the giant Coke bottle and grabbed a sandwich at the counter service right around the corner from the bar. I have no idea what the name of the bar or the counter service place but I do remember that I enjoyed the sandwich very much and the beer was pretty good too.

    Mari, it isn't counter service but 50's Prime Time serves very good food. I don't know how much English your girls speak but the staff is quite interactive.

    We always have a wonderful time at 50's Prime Time Cafe. We also enjoy Mama Melrose. And I had a phenomenal lunch at Brown Derby when I dined with the Imaganeer

    I'm with the others, I love 50's Prime Time (even though it's not counter service). The food is good and the entertainment value is great (even if you do more of observing than interacting).

    Weve never done 50's Prime Time, but I have to admit it kind of scares me ... :sorry: I guess its just not the same when you are not a native speaker.

    Tatiana understands far more English than Natalia, Im hoping that by next August it will be enough for her to be able to interact a bit more with characters.... it will still take Natalia 2-4 years to get to that point...

    We grabbed lunch at Fairfax Fare last week. They have a chicken and BBQ ribs meal that could easily feed 2 if not 3. You get a quarter chicken, a quarter slab of BBQ ribs (3-4 bones), Cole slaw and baked beans. Not the best I've ever had, but actually pretty good. Y
    ou can also get just ribs or just chicken
