      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Ribs, along w/ Sunset Blvd restaurants: open the latest
      Cons: limited desserts

      This has been rated the worst quick service at HS by Allears members primarily for the long waiting, ordering system, and partially due to food quality. On 9/6 we ordered the chicken/ribs which comes with beans/slaw at 130, right after a 1pm Beauty show. The confusing ordering system that was mentioned in other reviews was nonexistent. We ordered directly at the counter as you would expect, and no one was line! Maybe they do the weird ordering system during peak season, I'm not sure. We got our food immediately, because like other Disney quick service, they ramped up orders in anticipation of lunch crowds. I'm one of the least picky eaters I know, and I eat just about anything. So a 6 rating from me is reflective that the meal was edible, but that I probably would pick just about any quick service at HS over this one. The chicken/ribs, while not bad, was far from what you'd find at an average sit-down restaurant (think a notch below Applebee's). The ribs weren't super tender but still tasty, the chicken was alright. You can get packaged BBQ sauce but there was enough on the meat. The very small sides of beans and slaw were ok, not great. The meal was luke warm from sitting out. You can get the banana pudding with wafers or vanillia cake with custard. We got the latter, and it was a mistake. It came in a small 4 in deep jar, half filled, but it had gone bad from being old. anyway. I think if you paid for this meal outside the dining plan it's around $16, which I'd much rather get the burger at Rosie's next door, and we didn't order a single burger during the entire 8 day trip.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): OK turkey leg, Plenty of seating
      Cons: Overhyped turkey leg, Outdoor Seating

      I wanted to go to Toluca’s to get a Turkey Leg on my 2nd day, but it was closed. Luckily for me it said on a sign in one of the windows that I could get one at Fairfax Faire. This is of course another Kiosk that’s also in the Sunset Ranch area adjacent to Sunset Boulevard. Fairfax was only a short distance away from Toluca so I didn‘t mind walking over to it. I went right when lunch began at 11 am so the line wasn’t that long at all. In fact there was only one small family in front of me bickering back and forth.

      I’ve been hearing for years how great the Turkey Legs are on Disney Specials, Documentaries and Youtube Videos. Its gotten so famous that they even have Turkey Leg T-shirts in some of the stores. So I was very excited to finally get my a chance to bite into one. I knew after the first bite though that it wasn’t that good. I’m not sure if I built it up too much beforehand, but I was really disappointed by it. People have acted like it is a drug that they’d sell their first born for, but I truthfully wouldn’t even want to try it again. I’ll be kind and say it was OK, it was juicy and spiced nice. It was just nothing to write home about. Plus strangely the leg tasted more like Ham than Turkey. I love Ham, but it wasn’t what I expected when I bit into it. I had to look at it a few times to make sure it wasn’t Ham. Even by sight though I couldn’t tell, it was all pink inside of it just like a Ham.

      With my meal I got the premade Chocolate Cake, but I’ve heard that others have been lucky enough to get a Specialty Cupcake here. I wasn’t as fortunate though and was stuck with the same old cake that they serve everywhere. They must have a factory full of these and the Carrot Cakes.

      There’s plenty of outdoor seating in the area in back of the Fairfax and Turkey Leg kiosks, but they are outside in the florida heat. One good thing about the seating area though was that we had it all to ourselves. It’s like many people didn’t even know it was there. Either that or they decided to eat at one of the much better indoor Counter Services.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good food,
      Cons: small portion, out of chicken

      Was disappointed they were out of chicken. For price, hot dog was small, and not filling for DD 10 ordering off of adult menu. Ate here 3-25

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good food, easy to find a seat

      My friend and I dined here around 9pm on 3/27. I ordered the Kids Power Pack meal and he had the Macaroni and Truffle Oil hot dog. It was very easy to find a seat at that time of night.

      My friend said the hot dog was different but he really liked it. I was very pleased with the Power Pack meal. It came in a cute little box that I kept as a souvenir and had quite a lot of food for only $5.99. I was thinking the baby carrots would be great with some ranch dressing, and lo and behold, they had little cartons of it at the condiment bar!

      Definitely a great place for a quick bite, particularly if you like "gourmet" hot dogs.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good fast food
      Cons: line to order

      We grabbed a quick meal here on 12/30/13. I was super hesitant because of the negative reviews but the park was packed and we had fastpasses for Tower and rock and roller coaster. I had the Fairfax salad and DH had the BBQ sandwich. The salad was very good! DH loved the sandwich as well. This food was a much better option than burgers or pizzas. Fortunately, we ate early because the line moves slowly. I'm sure it gets backed up easily. We definitely will eat here again!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Seasonal cupcake
      Cons: seating

      This is a nice choice if you want something a little different than burgers or chicken fingers while at DHS. I had the chicken platter with baked beans and cole slaw. The beans and cole slaw were tasty but the chicken was a little dry, but don’t worry there are several different toppings at the condiment station to spice up the flavor.
      The star of the show was the seasonal gingerbread cupcake with cream cheese icing, it was one of the best desserts we had on our trip. It’s more of a spice cake then gingerbread, but the cream cheese icing was awesome!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): cheap and quick
      Cons: a mcmuffin at three times the price!

      Needed something quick at brekkie to tide us over until lunch at Sci-Fi. We walked past and thought why not, as there was no line and plenty of tables. It was adequate-we had the sausage and egg mcmuffin, sorry egg and cheese MUFFIN with sausage.... It wasn't bad just unmemorable.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food, CMs, seating
      Cons: Weird ordering system

      I have to say, we were pleasantly surprised with Fairfax Fare! DH, DS12 and I ate here for lunch in late Nov. All three of us ordered BBQ Ribs and Chicken. Everything, including the beans and coleslaw, was DELICIOUS! The ribs were falling off the bone tender and the chicken had great smokey flavor without being dried out or rubbery.

      The CMs were great, chit-chatting with us while we waited for our food. They were all sweethearts!

      The only thing that threw me was the ordering system. You ordered at a window, then instead of moving down the line, you waited there while another CM prepared your order. The CM who took your order just stands there. Hmmm...

      The seating is shared with other QS locations, but is plentiful and shaded nicely.

      We will definitely be back!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Plenty of seating. Nice atmosphere.
      Cons: Not worth the cost

      I just wanted a plain hot dog which is not listed on the menu so neither was the price. A plain hot dog with a bag of chips was $7.00. The hot dog was cold the bun was dry. Very disappointed. Also the veggie burger from adjoining counter although you received a large portion of fries, was dry and odd tasting. Again for the price disappointing. My daughter said the regular hamburger was good and satisfying.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Location, lots of seating
      Cons: Limited breakfast choices

      If you're in the park early to grab your TSMM fast passes, this is a good location to hit for breakfast. The egg mcmuffin type sandwiches are really nothing special, but it's a hot meal vs. a cold breakfast from Starring Rolls.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): better than expected

      We ate here right before the park closed--glad to see something was still open! Not many other customers as most were waiting to enter Fantasmic. Pretty good BBQ but the best was a courteous and communicative Japanese cashier.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): BBG was Good
      Cons: Ordering method

      We ate a small lunch/snack Fairfax Fare on 4/11/12. My wife and I split a BBQ sandwich and my 12yo daughter had some mac & cheese. Our sandwich was rather good – better than I expected it to be. My daughter said her mac & cheese was good. I have to agree with the previous reviewer – the ordering and payment system here is weird and ill-suited for the volume of guest they need to feed. Seems to add to the time you spend in line. Go early if you plan on going here.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): barbeque
      Cons: ordering & fulfillment

      Ribs were good and hot dog with pulled pork was very tasty.
      But, this is the weirdest of all Disney quick services. Can't think of another place where the cashier takes your order then turns around and "fulfills" the order while the next person in line waits and waits to place their order. And then the cycle begins anew. So, there are super slow pokes putting the food together, then they pass it to the cashier who just stands there waiting for it, then they give it to the customer. Bizarre!!
      Unless you have a lot of patience skip this place. You could theoretically wait upwards of 15 minutes and you are only the 3rd person in line. No exaggeration.
