Best counter service at Hollywood Studios?
I made all my ADR's for lunches this morning (got just what I wanted, including CRT for my younger dd's b-day :cool1:).

We're planning on eating at counter service places for dinner.. for Epcot, MK, and AK there seems to be a good variety, and pretty well know where I'd like to eat.

But at HS, it seems as if there's nothing that great there based on the menus I've found... what CS place would you recommend?

Not a huge fan of any of the CS options, but we stop at Starring Rolls for a cupcake and some coffee as a snack. There are some good soft pretzel carts around as well. We always skip over to Epcot or Boardwalk area for lunch and a park break.

Starring Rolls for a sandwich and cupcake, it is only open during lunch hours, though.

I liked the chicken at Fairfax Fare.

Starring Rolls for sushi and a cupcake. Great lunch!

I would consider changing to a dinner ADR at DHS & eating at Starring Rolls for lunch. DHS counter service is extremely lacking. Our favorite by far is SR. As has been noted, it closes too early for dinner. If you absolutely don't want a dinner ADR, I would avoid ABC Commissary. IMO, it's the worst CS location at WDW.

Starring Rolls without a doubt. Sandwich, fruit, cake and drink. Superb.

ABC Commissary is our family favorite. Everyone likes the food. The TV relaxes the DS. The AC and close restrooms allow us to completely rest before going out for a second round.

We enjoy "ABC" as well--- (gets a bad rap on the boards too)---

Just avoid the "classic lunch hours"--- tends to get VERY crowded !!!

Hubby really wants to try the Mac n Cheese hot dog! I believe at Catalina Eddies..

We almost always opt for Pizza Planet for CS while at HS, we've never found much else that appeals to us. Although this last trip we did find the "Power Pack" kids meal to be the best we'd found for DS so far, it had yogurt, carrots, goldfish, string cheese and cookie, it was great.

Pizza Planet!

When this question is asked of Animal Kingdom, Flame Tree always comes out as the prohibitive favorite. See here:

Fairfax Fare serves many of the same items, yet gets little love here. Granted, the setting of Flame Tree is far superior to Fairfax, but the food has far more similarities than it does differences. So it stands to reason that if people "love" Flame Tree, they should at least find Fairfax to be pretty good, which is all it would take to jump to the head of the DHS class.

We like Backlot Express because there's enough seating even at peak times, and the food is hot and fresh. Good chicken nuggets and grilled veggie sandwich. Starring Rolls has the best dessert choices, but you're pretty much limited to a cold cut sandwich for your entree, and there isn't a lot of seating (and it's all outdoors).
