Best CS Restaurants and Meals for each park?

What's your favorite Counter Service restaurants in each park, and what would you recommend? Any tips for dessert? I'm on the DDP, and have my TS booked, but was wondering about the CS ones.

Wanting to go back already!

Magic Kingdom-----Columbia Harbour House-----everything is good but I like the Shrimp and the Clam chowder.

Animal Kingdom-----Flame Tree---we always get the rib and Chicken combo and split it. The fruit plate is also quite nice on a hot day.

Hollywood Studios-----Starring Rolls----however, we had a delicious burger at the Back lot Express on our last trip. It was the last day of our stay and the only burger we ate.

Epcot-----so many choices---Sunshine Seasons for a great variety and the good desserts. Boulangerie Patisserie good Quiche and the best desserts anywhere. Yorkshire County Fish shop and the kids tell me that the sushi at Katsura Grill is excellent.

My favorite Quick service meal is the Tuna Sandwich or the Roast Beef Sandwich at the Roaring Forks located at the Wilderness Lodge. Even when we do not stay there we try to make at least one trip over to get a sandwich.

MK BOG Closest to a table service meal of any CS.
EPCOT Yorkshire fish
DHS Turkey leg at Sunset Blvd.
AK Flame Tree BBQ.

DHS probably has the fewest options and then AK. EPCOT Countries has the most options. Whatever cuisine you want to try.
