1. The 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck

4 Rivers is a bbq restaurant that started in Orlando and has since expanded throughout the state. The southern style bbq has made its way to Disney Springs with the 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck, which specializes in more Mexican-leaning dishes.

My Top Foodie Recommendation

One iconic dish that is a must-try on your next Disney Springs day is the Taco Cone. This dish starts with a fried flour tortilla that’s made into the shape of a cone.

You then get your choice of filling, and shredded lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, queso, cilantro, jalapeno, and a lime wedge are all stuffed on top. The Taco Cone is messy, so be sure to grab a few extra napkins.

Hipster Power Tip: While there are not a ton of tables around the for truck there are benches to sit at while you enjoy the warm Florida sun and your taco cone.

2. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza

One thing you can never go wrong with is pizza. At Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza you get to customize your own pizza from the crust and sauce to all of the toppings. The fast casual restaurant is located at the Town Center section of Disney Springs.

The Chicken Guy! serves a variety of chicken-based dishes like sandwiches, strips, loaded fries, and salads.

Pro Tip for Visiting the Chicken Guy! in Disney Springs

Don’t let the extremely long line fool you into walking past in lieu of somewhere else. The line moves quickly, but once you’re inside you’re basically going to need to know what you want because the distance from the door to the register isn’t long.

One thing that sets Chicken Guy! apart from its competitors is the 22 sauces that you can choose from to go with your meal. The sauces range in style from basic bbq sauce to more exciting wasabi honey.

My Top Foodie Recommendations:

You can’t go wrong with any of the chicken tenders, but be sure to try the fried pickles… you’ll thank me later!
