HS counter service ?

I am visiting the world in 10 days and am not sure which counter service at HS to eat at. They all look kind of blah to me. Right now I am leaning towards Fairfax Fare but am not sold on it. Any suggestions on where you like to go and what you like to order for CS at HS?

Fairfax gets most of our business. Good food for the price. Add in the other options on Sunset, and we find it to be the best bet. My single favorite CS dish at DHS is the Chicken Curry Bowl at the ABC Commissary, but everything else there is below average to putrid. So we only go there if everyone wants a Bowl. Otherwise, we can be found eating on Sunset.

Starring Rolls. Awesome sandwiches and amazing cupcakes. Gotta get there early though because they run out by mid-afternoon. Another nice thing is that you can sub fresh fruit for chips with your sammie, apple, orange, or banana.

We liked Pizza Planet. I felt you got a lot for the money. The pizzas were good, salad decent, and the Cappuccino cupcake is AMAZING! It gets a bad rap, but we enjoyed it and should have gone there twice instead of going to Fairfax one day.

We usually eat at Staring Rolls or Min and Bill's Dockside Diner...we love their Caesar Subs and frozen lemonade!

We really enjoyed the backlot express. Good variety of food and lots of tables and seats spread out. Didn't enjoy fairfax fare that much. Ok though.

Out of ALL of the theme parks, HS has the WORST food! Starring Rolls is awesome for baked goods, and Pizza Planet is the best for real food!

Yes I would agree with this and if you can find a table its a great place to sit and eat and people watch.

My votes is for Starring Rolls. They have delicious sandwiches and to die for cupcakes.
