Teriyaki at Disney and when I travel in general. I live in the Seattle area and teriyaki places are almost as common Starbucks and other coffee/espresso places.

Sadly, I love food and will eat pretty much anything!! I am, however, pretty picky about my burgers as well and have yet to find one at WDW that I truly enjoy as much as at home.

Mike, I agree but I challenge you to try Via Napoli's pizza. It ROCKS!!!! Hardcore ROCKS!!!!!

Drew says VN’s is good, but I’ve never heard him rate it above NY-style.

Nope, he doesn’t. Just spoke to him. He said, “It’s not NY-style, but it’s not bad.” (Typical New Yorker review. )

However, it may be useful to know he grew up within a few blocks of Di Fara’s. THAT is pizza that will rock yer world.

Interesting to see that many foods people avoid (burgers, nuggets, Chinese) are always consumed by us on vacation. My son must have the orange chicken at Lotus Blossom QS, which frankly has a nicer, lighter sauce than our local places use - and we have tons of ethnic eateries as we live close to D.C. My husband finds the burgers at our resort food court very acceptable as they turn over fast and are basically being cooked while you wait. And those chicken nuggets with fries are a must every day for my son.

The one thing we don't normally bother with is hot dogs, which are overpriced and not so special that we would get them at Disney. A couple of times my son has wanted one from Casey's and they were fine, but not a good value in my view. We can make them at home that taste better and for way less. I agree that the pizza is worth a pass, although again, my son has occasionally wanted some at Pizzafari and PizzeRisso. We have also gotten one at the food court on our last night to eat in the room while packing up the car. I'm a Jersey girl so I know good pizza and haven't found the style I like at Disney, not even at Wolfgang Puck's. It was good, but not the style I prefer.

I try to avoid burgers just because there are so many other good options. Also, I have no interest in eating at Bongos because Cuban food is very similar to Puerto Rican food and I can easily cook it at home.
