The sandwiches at Fuel at Dolphin are pretty darned good.
I’m all about Flame Tree’s spare rib platter with a side of onion rings for quality and value. Don’t forget the onion rings. The full spare rib platter can easily feed two adults. We share it between two adults and a 10 yr old boy, and we are well sated, with the knowledge that we’ll still be having a dole whip from tamu tamu.
I still have yet to try a full chicken dinner at Picabu (Dolphin) to feed the fam. Wannna be the guinea pig?
I’m also a fan of Columbia Harbor House’s tuna sandwich at MK.
For budget friendly TS, there are a few at your resorts worth checking into for price vs quality.
I’m a major fan of Kimonos. Decent sushi at not Disney prices. Il Mulino is often said to be one of the best Italian restaurants on property. Fountain is decent, but I find it to be overpriced by about 2 or 3 dollars per sandwich, so it’s pretty close to Disney prices.
I tend to judge on quality for price since WDW quality is haphazard at best, however, the prices are always high. One 15.00 qs meal can be complete trash, while another one will make you think they are undercharging. For the quality, I think Flame Tree’s rib platter is almost a bargain. It’s not gonna be the BEST ribs you ever had, BUT, for the price, in WDW, they are better than they have to be. Did I mention to get the onion rings?
Letdowns for me:
Pecos Bill fajita platter - enough food for two, but, imo, complete trash.
Sunshine Seasons - Mongolian Beef - mostly filler of carrots, and uncleaned snap peas.
If I were you, do your research, but do not overlook what you have right in front of you at Swan/Dolphin, when possible. Since they are not Disney run, they might be better.
