It's been awhile since we last ate at ESPN but we really liked it. Ate at Big River Grill for the first time a few weeks ago and weren't impressed.
Now also a proud great-grandfather of identical twin boys!

I would say it depends on what you order...for a burger go with BRG, for wings ESPN (my wife also liked the philly cheese there). For tap beer no contest, BRG by a mile. ESPN is a beer wasteland except for the bottle list.

This past August we did both. While the burger was decent at BRG, we wouldn't go back -the service was below average, their "special" chips were out of a bag, and it just wasn't worth the money(of course, what is at Disney). ESPN shocked my wife, she thought she would hate it and ended up loving it. Everything we had(we ended up there twice) was fresh, hot, and served on time.

For my family it's ESPN, hands down or up for high 5's. We like sports so if there is a game on we want to watch we head over there. Typical pub grub, we normally get a few appetizers and a couple beers, but we have had burgers as well. .. BRG does have a good beer sampler, but the food not so much.

All my experiences with Big River have been non-memorable. But I've always enjoyed my meal at ESPN. Big River would probably be a quieter option.
