Fairfax Fare, or Starring Rolls (sandwiches only, and I'm not sure how late they serve them).

Hollywood Studios has, in my opinion, the worst CS food options of all the parks. I've done Pizza Planet, ABC Commissary, Studio Catering Co. and Rosie's in recent memory.

For my next trip I plan on trying Starring Rolls, because it seems to be the only one that has a slightly different menu, and if all else fails I can fill up on a cupcake.

We usually end up at Backlot, as well. It's nothing extraordinary, but it has decent burgers and nuggets, which is what my family is looking for anyway. We like the indoor seating and drink refills, too!

Another vote for Backlot Express. We always end up there, but we may try Starring Rolls this year.

We like

Studio catering company for the pressed sandwiches and Fairfax fare a lot. Neither is indoors but studio catering is coverd and Fairfax fare has lots of tables with umbrellas.

ABC Commissary is perhaps the worst rated restaurant whether CS or TS in WDW here on the DIS as well as on many other Disney forum sites. I have been there twice: The first time the food was so absolutely horrendous I'm surprised the garbage can didn't spit it back out at us. I chalked it up to a "bad" day and tried it again a couple of years later. Shame on me, never ever will I try this place again. I have heard some say the place has improved, but I will never find out for myself. This was the worst dining experience (twice) I have ever encountered in WDW and among the worst outside of WDW.

Starring Rolls closes at 4pm and its not uncommon for them to run out of food before then!

IMHO, DHS has the poorest CS choices of all the parks.

In August we really enjoyed Toy Story Pizza Planet. Wished we had gone their twice instead of going to Fairfax fare one day. Thought we got a lot of food for the price and it was decent too.

Well, I guess the masses have spoken. I'll be avoiding ABC. So it will be Backlot Express for us.

What is the Sunset Ranch Market? I can't seem to find a menu for it.

We also end up at Backlot Express, it is inside and we really like the refill station.
