Three resorts? Wow, lucky you. I'm ready! Can't wait to see how you rate some of these restaurants. We are planning our ADR's and have a few of these in mind.

House of Blues-lunch

First on our agenda once we reached Disney property was to find lunch! We had just had a donut and coffee in the morning and some pretzels on the plane, so we were very hungry. I looked at the menu several times and thought it would be a good choice for lunch. The menu is larger and offers a variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, tacos and entrees.

My mother couldn’t seem to find anything she wanted on the grown up menu, so she chose grilled cheese. All of the choices on the menu and yeah lol. Already in the vacation she is being picky?! Now I know how people with picky kids feel. Whatever…the grilled cheese looked really good I will say. I hadn’t got my camera out, so I only have one photograph.

Tacos-shrimp and avocado street tacos were dynamite. The shrimp were succulent and plump and the avocado perfectly ripe with cotija cheese for a salty finish. The pico de gallo had a kick to it, but I still piled it on top. The portion is on the small side if you are looking for full meal-perhaps split an appetizer or order a side if you have a bigger appetite. Cornbread is a must!
Giant loaf of cornbread served in a cast iron pan with butter-tasty.


My dad enjoyed his pulled pork sandwich, which was served on a huge manly sized bun dripping with smoked tomato BBQ sauce as well.

We had never been here so admiring the decorations and theme of the restaurant was really cool. It is on the dark side as far as lighting, but the booths were comfortable making for a pleasant atmosphere. The only beef my father had was there are no draft beers available from what I saw on the menu. However, our service was great and very attentive. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Joining in! I love that we have almost none of the same restaurants - so fun to read reviews of places we DIDN'T go!

HoB sounds really fun - I like that they have a nicely varied menu. And the tacos look great!

HoB was a really cool and there were very few people there. I think people forget about it during the day!

Thanks for joining along!
