Not sure what this style would be. A diner, a food truck?

First off, for some reason I find these replies so funny and fully entertaining (and interesting).

Secondly, NO ONE here is from America except the Indians. Duh, we all came by boat, airplane, donkeys, wagons, moose, rollerblades, and by foot. LOL. We are one big mix of cool people.

This would mean that though most of the foods we consider our own (hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, etc, etc) were brought over by our ancestors from abroad- BUT, it took generations to 'perfect' and/or 'change' the recipes by adding local ingredients to make it taste as we know it today.

Thirdly, I don't think the menu should be enormous- quite the opposite. I'd love to see a condensed menu that showcases the best of the best.
OR, here's an idea, why not have one food/menu-item for every state? (Maryland = crab cakes)
50 items INCLUDING desserts would be awesome.
(laughing at myself....50 items is definitely NOT condensed. But I still think it's a great idea.)

PS, just wolfed down sick NYC Chinese food delivery that I'm sure people from China would bawk at. YUMMMMM

See my earlier post (#21) for my concept.

well you really don't need to because it would be surprise Philly Cheese Steaks not the great Primanti Brothers sandwich with fries and slaw ON THE SANDWICH.

We could debate this for months - let's end it right now:

EPCOT'S ALL-AMERICAN BREAKAST, MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT!

Bring on the pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, sausage gravy, biscuits... Sure, some of you are already itching to nitpic ("waffles are from Belgium, gravy is from Blah-Blah-Blah).

Regardless, breakast for dinner at Epcot? Sign us up!

I'd like to see Disney make the counter service restaurant into a sit down for dinner like Be Our Guest. Disney restaurants tend to offer only a handful of choices on their menus. Linda

Then where would people looking for "regular" CS food go for dinner?

Nice post and great question stoudt6!

Is it possible because WDW is IN America, therefore de facto "not absent"?

Disney is about as American as one can get

Pretty much anywhere you go and eat at WDW is Americanized food
