It can be more then one place. It also be can a cs or ts. I am looking forward to hearing some of the answers.

For me hands it was San Angel Inn. I love Mexican food. Let me start off saying that. In all my trips I had never eaten in any of the Mexican restaurant's at Disney. So I was excited to say the least. The food well was probe the worst or the nastiest food I ever ate in my life. It was dry, nasty and I couldn't even finish my meal. On top of that, the server was a creep. He rushed me threw out the whole meal. I'll never ate there again. Honorable mention goes to Flame tree BBQ. Nasty dry chicken and freakin birds all around me.

Mickeys Backyard BBQ. We were soooo excited for the show and character interactions, but it was a mad house and my daughter hardly got near a single one and the food was terrible, like worse then when your kids school puts on the end of year bbq, it was awful.

Via Napoli. Vile food and horrid service. My then-husband had just been to Italy and was looking forward to having non-American pizza and it was so bad. My son, who is a pizza expert had one slice. I didn’t even finish my one piece. And I was on the phone with my cc company to find out why they had decided to decline a $5 charge and close our card, and the server acted like I was just being a jerk.

* D-luxe Burger
* Beaches and Cream
* Via Napoli (pizza is good, but everything else including the service was abysmal)

    Le Cellier: burnt steak, tiny & close tables, inflated prices even by WDW standards.

    Be Our Guest dinner: Not worth the pre-fixe price, loud, cafeteria-type setting, weak service, mediocre food, the Beast is aloof & boring to meet.

    Ohana for sure. It wasn't bad, but the service wasn't great and the food (with the exception of the bread and the bread pudding, which was great) was just okay. Some things were cold when they arrived. Nothing was bad, but it just didn't live up to the hype.

    Trails End - it's time consuming and a pain getting to it, the food was mediocre typical breakfast buffet items, and service was sooo slow. It had gotten raved about so much here and I was really looking forward to it but we regretted the whole experience. I'd only eat there again if we were staying at FtW and had nothing but time.

    Beaches and Cream - stoked to get a coveted last minute reservation and then wondered why it was so popular. I hate the tiny tables, you feel like you're eating w the people next to you, and the food tasted like any other counter service Disney burger. Ice cream is the same stuff at the grocery store :confused3 The Fountain at Dolphin was much better!

    California Grill. The food was truly, truly excellent and I can't fault it (I had the black grouper served on herb basmati rice with cashew chutney, bok choy, baby shiitake, rock shrimp, kaffir lime-coconut nage and it was incredibly tasty) but the service was so abysmal that I cancelled my reservation for a Wave brunch that same trip and didn't go back to try all the Contempo Cafe offerings as I'd planned to.

    If we are strictly talking about the food, Columbia Harbour House was a letdown. The place has a lot of seating and it's got restrooms which are surprisingly hard to find in this area of the park, which is awesome, but my research showed that lots of people considered this one of the best QS options in Magic Kingdom. When we went, they were out of salmon (the dish I'd planned on ordering) so we had to make do with a platter of fried things, which we barely touched.

    Ohana -
    Horrible food. Overcooked meat, slimy wings, dry potstickers. Never ever again. How this place is popular is beyond me.

    Le Cellier -
    My steak was incredibly disappointing. Terrible cut of steak. Atmosphere was fine but the tables were ridiculously close together.

    Beaches & Cream -
    Food here is nothing special. Burgers and fries were meh. Ditto for the icecream. Taste like any old icecream i can get at the grocery store.
