    In recently reading a thread about the Sci-Fi Dine-In over at MGM, it occurred to me that it might just be the most devisive restaurant at Disney... it has a crew of loyal supporters, and a crew of folks who'd love to see it go the way of the Skyway ride.

    So here's my question: What restaurant do you and/or yours love, despite the fact many other people bash it?

    Mama Melrose is one of our favorites.

    Also, we have eaten at Planet Hollywood 3x and always had a great meal. The last time was this past August and it was the best one yet. The LA Lasagna was incredible!

    Always enjoy the 3 most bashed restaurants on these boards. Tony's, San Angel & Sci-Fi (burgers).

    The RFC has been fine as has Planet Hollywood and of course the Sci Fi dine in is a favorite. I think the place that gets the worst reviews that i really liked was Nine Dragons but I had Dim Sum only.

    probably San Angelo also...the food is not anything like it was but still love the atmosphere and ithe food was still ok, just more CHICHi-like than the first time we went. skipping it this time just cause we want to go other places and do not have room

    We won't come to Disney without out eating there. Had heard some pretty bad reviews about food and service. Never had a problem with either. Just goes to show everyone is different.

    Probably Planet Hollywood. Had two excellent lunches there (in spite of the noise and "dancing" servers).

    I have enjoyed every meal at Rainforest Cafe. The Bomba's BBQ wrap is really outstanding, and I look forward to eating there every trip even though it gets mixed reviews here.

    RFC is a must every visit. We have yet to have a bad meal experience there (knock on wood).

    My DH and I both love San Angel Inn. We ate there the first time on our honeymoon and every time since then. We love the food, the atmosphere, the servers (we've always had great ones), and DH especially loves the margaritas. :rolleyes: A trip to WDW wouldn't be complete without lunch at San Angel Inn.

    The Paradise Pot Roast at the RFC in DD was one of the best meals I've had anywhere. Pleasantly surprised!

    not so much bashed but very overlooked by people..Akerhus in Norway. I had no desire whatsoever to try that place but my DH LOVES smoked fish and other nasty things so since we tend to do whatever I say during a Disney trip I decided to let him have say over 1 thing :p Well I LOVED it. There were so many other things to try and they were all great. I'm skeptical abuot the recent ordering changes (1/2 buffet, 1/2 from server) but we will go again in Jan.

    In fact..nevermind..no one go there..it's horrible..nothing but slimy fish guts!! We love having no wait to go there so everyone STAY AWAY!!! kidding..give it a try.

    Nine Dragons, yup that's what I said, lol. We haven't eaten here in a while but we really enjoy this restaurant, we've never had a bad meal.

    RFC, downtown only, the one at AK was not that good.

    I always thought that SanAngel was a favorite, did I miss something?
