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 ).

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?

Thanks!

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 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 !!!

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.

I don't do Starring Rolls for lunch because they won't make the sandwiches without mayonnaise - they are not able to customize the sandwiches at all. If I'm going to have CS lunch there it's usually Backlot Express or Studio Catering.

My precise reason why I don't eat there except for breakfast. Hard to believe that in this day and age, mayo is still an immutable "standard" that certain sandwich sellers insist on using. Especially now that so many places are required to conspicuously publish nutritional information. Delete that mayo, and you suddenly have a heart-healthy sandwhich that a lot more people would consider. And if you want mayo....grab a packet.
