Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café at Disney’s Magic Kingdom – 5 Things To Know

Magic Kingdom has many different food options available. Need some help deciding? Saddle up and head out for some tasty grub! Here are 5 things to know about Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café.


1 – The Run-Down

Make your journey to Frontierland in Magic Kingdom. Located on the corner, within just a few short feet from Splash Mountain (and in-ears reach of the Splash Mountain screams as folks plummet down the mountain), you’ll spot Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café. This quick-service location has been serving up some tasty food for a long while now, but just recently switched their menu over to a full Tex-Mex cuisine. Quick and casual in style, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café doesn’t offer reservations, so it’s an excellent spot for all Disney guests. You can snag an excellent entrée for under $15, which by Disney’s standards is pretty good! Plus, dining plans are accepted at this location.

2 – Old Western Saloon

Cowboys welcome! Take a step out west when entering Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café. This spacious quick service spot is neatly decorated to fit the western style theme. From the moment you approach this saloon, you can’t help but notice the large, saloon-style Pecos Bill sign over the entrance of the building. Check out the short stools for seating at the round tables. Dim chandelier lights, hanging lanterns, intricate details, and colorful flowers and greenery make guests feel comfortable in this beautiful setting. Seating is available inside within two main, large rooms. There is also space for sitting upstairs, which is a neat place to tuck yourself away. Plus, a few seats are available outside surrounding the restaurant that provide a little bit of shade and are especially great when it’s not terribly hot outside.

3- Who Was Pecos Bill?

Pecos Bill was an all folklore American Cowboy that comes with many tall tales from the Old West, specifically taking place when America was beginning to expand westward. A few tales include Pecos Bill falling out of a wagon as an infant unnoticed by his family! He was taken by a pack of coyotes that raised him. Pecos Bill later grew up to become a cowboy. He had a rattlesnake named Shake that he used as a lasso and another snake he used as a whip! His horse, Widow-Maker, was supposed to be so fierce that no one else could ride him but Pecos because they would be killed trying. But from time to time, Pecos decided to ride a mountain lion instead of his horse. Get this – dynamite was Pecos’s favorite food – good thing they don’t serve that at the restaurant! Pecos Bill was said to have lassoed a twister and even wrestled the “Bear Lake Monster” and won. The stories go on and on. Just think of what a great conversational piece this will make for your next meal at Pecos Bills!


3 – Tex-Mex Cuisine

Are you in the mood for a little bit of spice added to your meal? Look no future further! Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café has some delicious western flare options. Entrees include the fajita platter with Barbacoa beef and chicken, beef nachos, southwest salad, rice bowls, and more. Topping bars let you add a variety of tasty options to your entrée. We know that kids sometimes aren’t into the spicy foods, but no worries – Pecos Bill has them covered! Kids can enjoy macaroni and cheese or a hamburger in addition to kid-sized versions of the Tex-Mex options. Don’t forget a yummy churro for dessert!

5 – Tips

Since Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café is in Magic Kingdom, you will need a valid park admission to dine. We also recommend that you try to dine outside of the typically lunch/dinner hours, as it does get crowded and sometimes difficult to find seating. Opening as early as 10:30am and closing as late as 11pm most days, you’ll likely want to try to dine before or after the lunch/dinner rush. Late-night dining here is also an excellent choice, as it is in great proximately to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (our favorite to ride at night) and Splash Mountain. Plus, there is just something wonderful about a little bite of Tex-Mex flavor late at night!

Mike & Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire as many MagicBands as possible while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 13 years and are blessed with two children - our 8-year-old daughter and soon to be 2-year-old son. As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
