I've often heard various discussions about where the best burger in Walt Disney World can be found. I've often wondered where I might find that delectable delight that is an outstanding burger.
It's time I entered this debate and render my own opinion about the best burger in Walt Disney World.
Since the Olympics are taking place in London -- let's grant some medals here.
Bronze Medal (tie): Pecos Bills and Beaches and Cream
Now I'm sure that already some of you are saying "WHAT?!?!?" Pecos Bills doesn't take the Gold??? Others are saying the same thing about Beaches and Cream. Hear me out.
I think Beaches and Cream (located at the Beach Club Resort) offers a better burger (pictured above), but Pecos Bills (located in Frontierland in the Magic Kingdom) has, by far, the best options for toppings -- especially the sautéd mushrooms and onions. Both burgers are cooked to perfection - nice and juicy. Taken together, they tie for third place. I will give a side award to Pecos Bills -- best burger in the Magic Kingdom.
Silver Medal: Rose and Crown
But the best burger in any theme park goes to an Epcot restaurant. The royal burger at the Rose and Crown Pub in Epcot's United Kingdom Pavilion is topped with bacon, cheese and fried onions. This burger is huge. The fried pickle on the side adds just that extra bit of fried goodness. The English chips (fries to us yanks) help this burger make it to the podium at the silver medal position. It's a bit pricey, but it is exceptionally good.
Gold Medal: The Fountain
Taking the Gold is the Fountain Burger at the Fountain at the Dolphin Resort. If the Rose and Crown burger is huge, this burger is gigantic! Topped with everything you can think of including chili, sautéed onions, mushrooms, mounds of bacon and more, this burger really is make for two. It's that big. The chips on the side are an afterthought -- there's so much burger to eat. Add one of the Fountain's legendary shakes and you're in heaven.
So there you go -- the 2012 Best Burger Champion goes to the Fountain. What do you think? Where's your best burger? Post a comment!
