50’s Prime Time Cafe~A Review

Our AWESOME contributor Rachel is back and has a great review of a family favorite!

Hi ya pal!  As I sit here typing away, thinking about my upcoming trip, I’m craving the topic of my newest review, 50’s Prime Time Café in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

50’s Prime Time is a wonderful restaurant full of mom’s cooking.  The food here is great, home cooked meals.  It’s quite different from what you would order at another restaurant on Disney property.  This is good ole American everyday food.   They have milkshakes (and let me add that the peanut butter and jelly milkshake is the best) and malts, salad, fried chicken, meatloaf, pot roast and a whole lot of other comfort food.  This is a nice change from your other table service restaurants.  Since I have a family of 5, we all order different entrees and try each other’s meals.  So, I think it’s safe to say that I’ve tried almost everything off of this menu.  We always start off with the peanut butter and jelly milkshake.  I have to share this with someone because it is way too big for me to drink alone and expect to enjoy my meal.   You know, I’m not a big fan of meatloaf, but I have to say the meatloaf here is the best I’ve tasted…ever.  If you have a big appetite, never fear, there is an entrée called, A sampling of mom’s favorite recipes.  This includes fried chicken, fork tender pot roast, and meatloaf.  Holy cow is it a lot of food.

The prices here are very reasonable.  If you’re on the Disney Dining Plan, it counts for one table service credit.  If you have a Tables in Wonderland card, 50’s participates in this program as well.  But even if you’re paying for it, the prices are not as much as some of the other restaurants.

The atmosphere here is hustling, bustling, fun!  Mom, Dad, or Uncle will be your server.  But, be warned, you must keep your elbows off the table and have all proper table manners.  Be sure to eat all of your vegetables or you can’t have desert.  And for the love of God, please do not talk on your cell phone, or play on your cell phone because mom, dad, or uncle will getcha!  Most of the staff really get into character.  They definitely make the experience that much better.  This is not a quiet restaurant, in fact, it’s quite noisy.  So, if you are looking for a nice cozy, quiet place, don’t come here.  But if you’re looking for fun, and get the right waitress, or waiter, this is definitely a must-do.

So, the next time you’re in DHS, if you haven’t already, give it a try.  You must make reservations.  I would not recommend trying to get a walk-up.  If you have eaten here, let me know what you think!  That’s it for today.  See ya real soon!
