I don't know.. I am pretty laid back about restaurant food, but I ate the chicken/rib combo at CR and I might classify it as disgusting. NO OFFENSE AT ALL.. but it was slimy and just not good. Perhaps it was just an off day for CR, but it was definitely pretty gross. And this would be comparing it to a Boston Market or something.. not a five star place. I wouldn't try that meal again

i guess I get riled up sometimes defending WDW vacations as a whole (when you have someone that goes at Christmas, doesn't have ADRs and arrives at the parks at noon and then complains how horrible it is).. but there aren't any restaurants I will take stands against at this point. I think I totally just ordered the wrong dish at the wrong time. Have a great day everyone!

No restaurant is for everyone, and no one is obliged to go to CR or any other, even though most of the CS places serve the same food. We don't care for Casey's Corner, but we don't complain, nor do we go there. I can get better hot dogs from our grocery store, but I concur to those that do love it. We all have our opinions, and I have yet to find any WDW restaurant "disgusting or inedible", those are pretty strong words
I called the ribs we had "inedible" because I don't know what else to call them? We literally could not eat them because of the fat layer and being so tough. Is there another word I should use?

Food that I cannot eat because it is so gross is considered disgusting in my world. And it was not just the fries, it is everything I have ever tried there. That is what this thread is about. If I had ONE bad meal, fine. But every meal I have eaten there over the last 7 years? Not fine.

Most of us didn't eat our food even though we were hungry. I think I can use the word disgusting for that. Yep...still sticking with disgusting.

There you have it! Exhausted, late, place to sit down, starving! The longer we seek food the more my expectations dampen, in the end the food quality is the least of my consideration at this point!

I will say that once, a long long time ago, in an era gone by (15 -20 yrs) I had a hot hamburger, on a soft bun, covered with sauteed mushrooms and onions and a hint of cheese sauce that would rival any hamburger I've ever eaten! Who knows, maybe I was delirious from the heat!

Sometimes when the conditions are right and the stars align with the moon, you have an experience that you won't ever be able to re-create!

The food is blah!!!!!!!!!!! but always edible! Now I stick to ceasar chicken salad, not impresive nor exciting but edible!

I've also not found it disgusting, really. It's not the best (I much prefer CHH or Casey's), but sometimes if you're in the mood for a burger it's a good choice. I like toppings bars.

Well, again, "gross" isn't a word I'd use that lightly, either. Seems a bit hyperbolic. But YMMV.

I guess what confuses me the most is why you wouldn't complain to the manager if you received TWO "disgusting, inedible" batches of french fries. But more than that, I guess I'm confused as to why you keep going back to eat some place that you or your family clearly does not enjoy? Even if it was the only place open. Doesn't make sense to me. Definitely better planning is needed to make sure you aren't spending good $$ on what you consider bad food. I would never pay twice for a meal somewhere that I considered disgusting.

My kids love the entertainment. Ironic, I know

I didn't eat with the rest of the family last trip. I picked up fast passes while they ate at cr, then got a snack later on. Good decision.

There really is no need for personal attacks.

ETA: I still have no idea why you are taking this thread so personally. In reading through it, you seem completely offended that I (and many others) would find this restuarant not good. Why? Why are you getting SO upset about it?

I don't consider this a personal attack after all your posts on this subject and this restaurant and the descriptions that you gave for "all" the food on the menu there - just commenting on what you, yourself, had already said along with a few others that agreed completely with you. When you come on so strong, as a PP said, you are bound to get some strong replies back

Yes - you turned it into personal attacks. I think calling someone a slow learner is definitely a personal attack. And, over what? Cosmic Rays. Seriously? You've officially turned this into the weirdest thread I've ever read.

What would you call someone that has kept going back to the same place for 7 years, calling "all" the food at said place disgusting, gross, inedible, when a lot of us truly enjoy the food there? I don't exactly like having a place that I have gotten good food called these names either. Y'all are stating your opinions quite "vocally" so I can also comment on things other posters have commented on. We just got back, ate there, and the lines were very long, and the tables full - doubt seriously that they were all eating gross food - we weren't

Veggie Patties are ok. From what I understand they're Gardenburger brand.

Nothing exceptional [either way]. But it's a quick burger.

I must say, this thread has been sort of entertaining and unique. Which is surprising since pretty much ever WDW restaurant at some point or another gets a thread very similar to this one. A bunch of people say X restaurant is gross/nasty/disgusting. A few others chime in and say they got food poisoning and then a bunch of others rush into defend the place. Nobody's right or wrong since tastebuds don't lie but they aren't a one size fits all kind of thing.

I am a Pecos Bills girl, love the taco salad although why I don't know since everytime I get to the bottom of that taco shell bowl I see this big glob of grease! Talk about gross, but I can't help myself, I love that salad! Although I use the term "salad" very loosely since the only thing green in it is the iceberg lettuce I put in just to make it look like a salad.

One of the reasons I don't like CR is that once I encountered this crazy woman who threw her tray at me because she thought ds and I had stolen some of her french fries. We laugh now but at the time, I seriously thought this woman was going to punch me. Maybe its her memory that makes me avoid this place if I can possibly do so! I guess her fries were done and tasty because she was mad as hell that somebody had eaten them while she was in the potty.
