      Positive aspects of the product (pros): fixin's bar, only non seasonal place with mexican, open late, lots of seating

      Pecos has a lot of seating, but it's still busy because so many people stop here. I come here every year, and normally order their burgers or pulled pork sandwiches. This time, we split a steak/chicken dinner, and same ol' chocolate cake. The steak and chicken was available during dinner only, and had a small strip of steak, not bad, and a split breast piece of chicken, which was better than the thigh you get at most places such as Fairfax. You got a lime salsa for the chicken and we got sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions, tomatoes from the toppings bar for the steak. It wasn't as big of a meal as you'd expect, but enough to share. The CM was especially friendly and took time to talk to us (we came during early dinner hours and it wasn't that busy). We sat in the dark dining room, which I liked. Thought the food was decent, not exceptional. This place is very similar to Cosmic Rays in that it's large, has a toppings bar, and some overlap in menu. We prefer Pinnochio's, Be Our Guest lunch, and Columbia Harbor for more off the beaten path foods (i.e. italian flatbread, braised pork, chicken pot pie). But we will probably continue coming here when craving a burger with onion rings.

      Other than the toppings bar and lots of seating, it's one of the few restroom locations in the immediate area by Splash/Thunder. It is also where the Electric Parade starts, so you can actually park a spot with your food at around 8-830 on the curve and be less crammed than on Main St. The drawback is that you have to be ok with either missing or being further back on Main St. for Celebrate the Magic (945pm during our 9/1-9/8 stay) or 10pm Wishes. Which we preferred anyway, so that we could beat most of the crowd to the buses and have many of the lighted Main St. bldgs in our photos of the castle.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Unusual chicken and steak choice, great toppings bar
      Cons: Average food and awful dessert choice, minimal seating

      The chicken and steak platter makes an unusual choice in the Magic Kingdom for counter service and was fine. The chilli cheese fries also fine. The seating packed and not very clean. It is a definite ok.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Hamburgers, Toppings Bar, Atmosphere
      Cons: Menu, Desserts

      You can always get a good Hamburger at Pecos. The desserts aren’t worth writing home about though. They give the same premade Chocolate or Carrot Cake that you can get in every park. Also they have a very limited menu, it‘s mostly just burgers and salads. It does have a great and huge U shaped toppings bar that they put opposite the main counter.

      I love the Atmosphere, it looks like a Wild West saloon on the left side. There’s also a section that looks like a Mexican courtyard on the right, this where I like to sit. It has a small fake patio on the wall and a tiny fountain in the corner. The seats are a bit weird though, their more of a cushioned stool then a chair. They give no back support, so you feel a little hunched over. I enjoy the dimmed lights that’s throughout most of the restaurant though, it really relaxes my eyes.

      I always enjoy going to this place, even if the menu is a bit limited.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fixin's Bar
      Cons: "Security Hosts"

      Pecos Bills has always been a favorite spot to stop of ours and it didn't disappoint the last week of March 2014. The toppings bar is great! However, I do wish the meat in the taco salad actually looked more like beef instead of mush, but in saying that, the taco salad was very very good.

      My husband and son however, didn't care much for being stopped on the way to find a table and were told they had to wait for the rest of their party. It was kinda ridiculous. Disney needs to somehow change this.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good food, fixings bar
      Cons: Order was wrong, line next to us served 5 orders before ours was filled.

      The food was good as usual, but was upset the order was wrong, my daughter has a food intolerance, and I asked for no cheese on my burger, it had to be re-made because the original had cheese. Service was slow, 5 orders were served in the line next to us before one order came out of our line.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Very good burgers and great fixins bar.
      Cons: Seating "hosts" act more like Security Force than hosts.

      This is a quick service restaurant located near the border of Adventureland and Frontierland and is one of the largest quick service restaurants at Magic Kingdom.
      The burgers are large and very tasty and the food was served very fast considering how busy they are. (if you get a chance to look in the back where the food is prepared...it is neat to watch the "assembly line" action of filling orders.). The fixins bar is a really great addition and allows you to build your sandwich the way you want to. My wife got a Taco Salad and, with the exception of the meat and shell which they give you, you build it yourself.

      The one negative is the seating area. Due to the popularity of the restaurant and the location (where a lot of people evidently decide to try and stop to rest without buying). THey have "seating hosts" who will have you wait until your entire party is through the lines (and fixins bar) and then seat you at a table of their choosing. (for a large party, it can mean standing there with your tray for quite a while while your food gets cold.) Then if you have to leave the seating area (for restrooms or something off the fixins bar for example,) you are given the third degree upon your return. (almost acting as if you are lying that you were already seated.) There HAS to be a better system.

      But the food outweighs the "Table Security Guards" so I highly reccommend this as a Quick Service restaurant for Disney visits.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): They served food
      Cons: The food was terrible, and so was the service

      It was 6pm and apparently this was the only quick service place in Magic Kingdom open for dinner so we were stuck eating here. The lines were not really that long (maybe four people ahead of us) but it easily took half an hour to order and get our food. And we ordered salads!
      Mine was close to inedible - it came with chicken and it was an overcooked dry chicken breast that was not even sliced. I had to slice it myself which was really hard seeing as it was in a salad. My friend's salad came with chicken that was pre-sliced and not nearly as dried out.
      Would not recommend this place to anyone, unless you are stuck for a place to eat, as we were.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Burgers, Fixin' Bars, Fries
      Cons: Crowd

      I know Pecos Bill is really just a fast food joint, but it has become one of our favorite WDW traditions to eat there. Burgers are great, love the fixin' bar, including being able to get cheese for the fries, portions are large. Only downside is that it is always crowded, but finding a table is generally possible.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food, fixings bar
      Cons: misinformed by CM, dessert

      Food was good, DD 10 had taco salad, I had bacon cheeseburger. the fixings bar is the best.
      Would have given a 10, but there were two problems. The CM indicated there was no cheese on the burger that you got that at the fixings bar, which is incorrect, the burger comes with american cheese, which my daughter has an intollerance to. the desserts are standard QS fare, and unimpressive.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great burgers.
      Cons: None

      Pecos Bills, for all intents and purposes is a replica of Cosmic Rays (from over in Tomorrowland) except set to a western theme. Really that's all it is. However, the one difference I can pick out is that it has better burgers there than Cosmic Rays has. Everything else is basically the same offerings at the same quality and for the same price.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): burgers

      Ate here on our past trip in July. Burgers were good. It can get crowded at times but we always found a table.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): rude counter service. dry, Bland, boring, over-priced food.
      Cons: almost everything - It was convient to sightseeing

      I cannot rave more about Walt Disney World. I am the ultimate fan. However, if there is something the Magic Kingdom could work on, it is its food. I read many reviews preparing for our Disney Vacation, and while much of the food in the park was discouraged, Pecos Bills was well-reviewed. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Add it to the list of underwhelming, over-priced food at the Magic Kingdom.

      While the fixing bar IS impressive, even good fixings cannot save a bad burger. The burgers here are dry dry dry and tasteless. The ordering station is chaotic, and the options are limiting. I had also read in almost every book and blog than one could order a double cheeseburger and just get an extra bun for about a dollar more, and when asked about the “secret” the clerk dismissed my request, quite rudely. Most Disney employers bend over backwards for good service! We will not go back to Pecos Bills, and we will not recommend it.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): toppings bar
      Cons: crowded and congested seating areas

      We ate here for a second time in 6 months in May. Both of us ordered the chicken wrap. It is very large and the dressing is not overpowering. I opened mine up and added some banana peppers and cheese sauce. Yummy! This wrap is large enough to share. After we finished our wraps we both went up to the toppings bar and topped our fries. If they had chili on the bar it would be perfect, but I made due with the salsa and cheese sauce and jalapenos. Husband had mushrooms, onions and cheese on his. It's nice to have a choice. My biggest complaint about this place is the seating areas. The tables and chairs are very close together and the room was always full to capacity. The cast members did a good job of "directing traffic" but made me a little self conscious going back and forth to the toppings bar, I felt like they disapproved. We will eat here again, but it is not a "must do" place to eat.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): food, newly organized seating
      Cons: none

      I really like the food here. The bbq pork sandwiches are always very good! The new way that they have the organized seating and not allowing anyone without a tray through to sit down at the tables works wonders and causes less headaches. I always hated trying to go to this table service location in the past because of how hard it was to find a table. The new system works and people like me with large parties appreciate it greatly!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good Burgers
      Cons: None

      Pecos Bills was the best place to get a burger in Disney in the past. Two years ago it was down right bad. We tried it again this year during our 05/02 thru 05/09 vacation and now again think that it is at least an OK burger. The burger itself is much leaner then in past. I suspect that is due to a more health conscience customer base. Two years ago the bun the burger was served on was like a roofing shingle dry with a dry lifeless burger. Now the bun is a softer white bread bun that is more traditional for a fast food burger. The Cheese was actually melted on the burger as well. What makes this place is the great topping bar. Sautéed Onions and Mushrooms, Cheese sauce for the fries. For what a burger costs here you can get a much better burger in places off premise. No they are not Disney Theme Park so you pay for the address as well. This is not bad but there are other places in the Magic Kingdom that offers better value.
