All, can we say all? When it comes to best quick-serve restaurants at Epcot it’s different levels of good. In the DVC Duo house, we go back and forth, on which World Showcase country offers the best counter service meal. After much debate, we’ve put together our top 3 quick-serve locations. Let’s bust out reusable silverware (Wall-E approved) and sample our way around the world!
When you do it well, it’s all you need to offer. Coming in third on our list of best quick-serve restaurants at Epcot is the Yorkshire Country Fish Shop in the United Kingdom Pavilion. Attached to the Rose & Crown Pub, is the walk-up window for ordering the restaurant’s famous fish and chips.
Styled after a traditional British chip shop, the Yorkshire Country Fish Shop offers a single item that’s had people lining up since it opened. The fish and chips are by far the best on property and solid representation of the traditional English meal. With its light crispy batter and perfectly cooked flakey fish, it’s a wonderful grab and go meal. Pair it with a Bass Ale, and we’re happy campers! What we love to do is a split a serving while waiting on one of our favorite Epcot musical acts, the British Revolution.
Passholder Insights: To the right of the Yorkshire Country Fish Shop is a bridge, if you walk across the bridge on your left side is a great quiet area to enjoy your meal.
It’s A Fiesta
Tacos, nachos, and margaritas, oh my! On our second stop of the best quick-serve restaurants at Epcot we’re heading to the Mexico Pavilion. A DVC Duo all-time favorite is La Cantina de San Angel. Whether we’re splitting nachos as an afternoon snack or fulfilling our taco craving, no trip to Walt Disney World is complete without a stop at the Mexican Cantina.
Across the walkway from the Mayan temple is the open-air cantina. Over the years we’ve tried all the different menu items, and there are no bad choices. Our one recommendation would be to pick up a margarita either at La Cava del Tequila within the Mayan Temple or at Choza de Margarita across the way. You can thank us later! Throw in a trip on one of our favorite Epcot rides and we’re all smiles.
Passholder Insights: With ample amounts of shaded areas, La Cantina de San Angel is a great spot for taking a break from the heat.
Top of List
Drum roll, please! For us, the best quick-serve restaurant at Epcot is the Tangierine Café in the Morocco Pavilion. To the right of the pavilion’s fountain, you’ll find the entrance to arguably the most underrated counter service restaurant serving up amazing shwarma platters.
The bountiful platters bring together the region’s most notable dishes. From the tender pearl couscous to the creamy hummus, and of course the perfectly roasted shwarma, the platters are great sharing. Looking for something more handheld, the gyros are for you. They bring together the highlights of the platter and wrap it all together in a pita. After your meal head deeper into the pavilion to say hello to Jasmine and Aladdin.
Passsholder Insights: For a lighter bite during the Epcot’s festivals, like Food and Wine, head over to the Morocco booth. You can never go wrong with any of their offerings.
There’s always an honorable mention! Epcot’s World Showcase is known as the place to go for food in the park; however, it’s not the only place. Just missing our top 3 list for the best quick-serve restaurants at Epcot is Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion. With offerings from a variety of cuisines, there is something for everyone’s palette at Sunshine Seasons.
Passholder Insights: We like to use mobile ordering as a great way to avoid a lot of the lines at the quick-serve locations.
Overall the majority of the quick-serve locations at Epcot fantastic. The big question is figuring out what you’re in the mood to eat. What we like to do is order something from a couple of the quick-serve locations to split. It’s a great way to try more dishes. For now, this is our top 3 best quick-serve restaurants at Epcot. Ask us next week and more than likely it will be different. Bon Appetite!
