Don't go in expecting some of the best BBQ you've ever had -- it's not at that level. It is quite excellent for Disney, though.

H and I were thinking of maybe sharing one of these, guess not! 🤔

Brisket sandwich was good. I like the garlic toast “bun”. The spicy mop sauce wasn’t too spicy, good flavor. We also liked the smokehouse sauce as well. The 3-meat platter was very disappointing. Small portions, too small for the price.

I've got to try Polite Pig one of these days.

But how was the BEER?

Man... Now I want Pig Floyds!!

Yeah I know, but he didn't specify Disney owned; he just said at WDW -- most of the restaurants at Disney aren't operated by Disney anyways.

Same. Got the ribs at Docking Bay 7 once and they were just awful. It was all fat and rubbery.

Depends how far out you want to go,4 rivers is great imo .

Polite pig is much better but that is not owned by Disney ,it is owned by a local family in winter park ,they have a few other restaurants but those are table service.

I don't know about that; EPCOT has some pretty good counter service in the World Showcase. Also there are several excellent counter service places at Disney Springs -- I will never believe Regal Eagle is anywhere near as good as Polite Pig for counter service BBQ unless I experience it myself. You may not be counting Disney Springs as part of WDW though if you meant just inside the parks themselves.

I’ve only been to docking bay twice and had gritty gross ribs. That could have been a one off and since everyone raves about it I’ll likely give it another go.

I'm comparing it to other WDW counter service. By that standard it's an A+. But yeah, I think I enjoyed Docking Bay 7 ribs more now that you mention it.

It was around 8:00 PM so perhaps I didn’t get the best example of it, but have you eaten at a legit, high rated bbq place before? I genuinely can't imagine Regal Eagle improving that much to where it could compete with one.
