    The "Juicy Lucy": a beef patty stuffed with bacon and provolone cheese, topped with more provolone, crispy pickled jalapenos, and chipotle mayo on a brioche bun. Jake and Elwood would approve.

    So far so good! enjoying the HH with a delicious Blue Moon beer. Street Tacos are spicy but very tasty. Made me forget the I was inside a Disney environment...

    Love this venue for concerts! The sound is great and the inside is nice. The security staff, however, can be very rude if the band has some kind of special VIP or something(only real downside)

    Amazing VooDoo Shrimp! Every time I visit (once a year) I'm waiting for corporate franchise America to screw it up. EVERY TIME, It gets better than the last. Sauce & ratio is absolute perfection!

    Whether you are in the crowd or by the bar you can always get a great view of the stage. Drink all you can and pee before your band plays so you can rock out while they play.

    Skipped the line and sat at the bar to eat. The meatloaf was amazing. They guy next to me had the Jambalaya and it looked incredible (and he said it was as well).

    Great BBQ wings. They sauce is very sweet, but still tangy, which I love. The bacon cheese burger was fantastic with the crispy jalapeños. ❤️🍔

    If you get there a little after the line dies down there isn't any type of pat down. $9 24 oz. beers. On Disney property so no lot scene. Entrance 5 is the best place to park without traffic/tourists

    You must attend gospel brunch - even if you do not have a religious affiliation - you don't want to miss the food or the amazing entertainment!

    In downtown Disney, this music venue has great shows every weekend, but come early to scout out a good viewing spot of the stage.

    Great venue for shows. Get reserved seats if you don't want to stand the whole show. Reserved seats best view of the stage.

    Street tacos are awesome but (shrimp and avocado ones at least) are spicy! Go for the cornbread w. jalapeños (not spicy) lol.

    I don't care for bread pudding but everyone convinced me to try it and now I'm a fan. It might have been the bourbon in it or the 2 L. I. Iced teas I had before.

    Great food but they're really iffy on allowing substitutions. Wouldn't allow a tea/coffee instead of dessert on DDP as well as a sub within the meal.

    Unless you're at the very front of the PTL line you will have a tough time getting a good spot. Too many things obstructing the view of the stage

    A useful thing to know for concert goers is that sharpie markers are not allowed in the venue. They do search you and if they find one, they will confiscate it.
