Favorite Quick Service Spots

We will be in Disney Dec 11-18th on the Disney Plus Dining Plan
We already have all of our table service meals booked but wanted to get some insider information and recommendations on quick service places that have the best food and overall most for your meal!

Probably one of our favorites is Flame Tree BBQ at AK. The portions are massive, two could easily share and the food is REALLY good.

Not in the parks but QS at the Contemporary is a favorite. Great variety. Love sitting and watching the monorail go by overhead.

My favorite restaurant (and it is a QS) at Disney is Pizzafari in Animal Kingdom. I'm not sure why either! Love their pizza. Get a pizza without a side salad and with a CUP (not bottle) of water and it's only $6.99 or something like that!

I don't know why I like their pizza more than any other places at Disney. I DO remember eating at a QS at Disneyland in 2009. I got a SLICE of pizza (at Pizzafari you get a mini-pan pizza) and it was the worst pizza I'd ever put in my mouth. D:

I have to second Flame Tree at AK! At Epcot, my favorites are Tangierine Cafe (Morocco) and Kringla (Norway). At Hollywood Studios I'd pick Starring Rolls, nothing outstanding but good for a quick bite. As for MK, I am not particularly fond of any of their QS restaurants (I'm hoping Be Our Guest lunch will change that ), but if I don't have an ADR or don't want to take the time for a TS meal I'll usually get some corn dog nuggets at Casey's.
Downtown Disney also has a great QS option in Wolfgang Puck Express (AMAZING meatloaf sandwich and fries!!). I've heard Earl of Sandwich is great but have never been myself.

I second Captain Cook's at the Poly. For the chips. Definitely my favorite snackfood in all of Disney!

We also like Cosmic Ray's at MK for the variety, Wolfgang Puck Express at DTD because we've always been so satisfied with the service and food and Yak and Yeti counter service for the Honey Chicken. Yum!

Oh, and the best burger I've ever had in all of Disney QS... Leaning Palms at Typhoon Lagoon!

Everyone has given you great choices. But forgot Sunshine Seasons. Love it. Lots of variety and strawberry shortcake!

Here's my favorites!
DTD - Our favorite overall CS is Wolfgang Puck Express!!! Fresh, delicious, big portions and a great variety. The most TS-like of all the CS places.
MK - We love Columbia Harbour House.
DHS - I know a lot of people dislike CS here, but we really like Backlot Express. The burgers are good, but the chicken salad is our new favorite...so good!
EP - So many good ones here, but we like Sunshine Seasons, Tangierine Cafe and of course Boulangerie Patisserie.....
AK - Flametree BBQ is where we head back to every trip!!!

As many pp have said, for quality and the best value for your dining plan (ie, the most expensive things you can get for 1 quick service credit) Wolfgang Puck Express at DTD Marketplace is the winner, with 5 entrees over $15, the salmon is $18!!
Here's the menu http://allears.net/menu/menu_wpe.htm

I think some runners up are Flame Tree, Columbia Harbor House, Pecos Bill's (for the topping bar, makes a very average burger GREAT!) Sunshine Seasons has some nice choices and is good quality. Boulangerie Patisserie is EXCELLENT quality, but a much better use of your snack credits (ex., warm ham & cheese croissant, a napoleon and a cappuccino would be 3 snack credits and is enough for a good meal, or for two to share...)

I have always had this certain love for Cosmic Rays. I don't know if it is because it was my very first CS on my first visit or what (I loved the BBQ). Now, however, I tend to prefer Pecos Bills. That may change, again, once BOG opens

Sadly, I haven't eaten at a lot of the CS places as we tend to eat a TS lunch and I am hardly ever hungry the rest of the day. I may borrow some ideas from this thread for my upcoming trip , though
