On the Saturday of our visit to Walt Disney World, we spent a very enjoyable morning at Hollywood Studios, riding and re-riding The Tower of Terror and the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster.
Eventually, we had to eat lunch.
The ABC Commissary was another place we stumbled upon, since we didn’t have reservations and didn’t want to spend a lot of time or pay a hefty price for lunch. One place we checked out was charging $43 per person for a luncheon buffet!
Of course, I also wanted to find a place where I could eat something a little more healthful than fries.
The ABC Commissary seemed promising.
Atmosphere: Like a commissary on a studio lot. Air conditioned. Lots of seating. Somewhat loud and noisy. Lots of advertisement for ABC.
Service: Quick Service/Counter Service. You stand in line, place your order with one person. Then you move up and wait at the counter for the counter runner to bring your order once the kitchen puts it out. Then you find a seat. The order takers/counter works were fast, friendly, and efficient.
Menu: There’s a grand total of six entrees, all under $12.00. Only one is vegetarian/vegan (the Asian Chicken Salad without chicken – $7.69. At least that’s $3 cheaper than the Asian salad WITH chicken.
The Food Itself: Not wonderful, but far from awful. The salad appeared to be comprised of romaine lettuce, some cabbage, shaved carrots, chow mein noodles, and an Asian dressing I would almost swear was Ken’s Steakhouse Asian Sesame.
Oh, and edamame. Lots and lots of edamame, which was filling and also provided a big dose of fiber and protein.
Overall I was satisfied. It was inexpensive, fast, and tasty enough. I felt I had eaten healthfully (in fact I felt a little smug munching my salad when all around me were eating bacon cheeseburgers and fried chicken nuggets). And the meal was light enough I could immediately hop back on The Tower of Terror and Rock ‘N’ Rollercoaster.
