    New menu at Flo's

    I'm sad - they've really gone away from the unique aspects of food items here and went to standard fare pretty much available anywhere. Sure maybe an ingredient or two is different - but the base items of burger, sandwich, salad, chicken are found in multiple places in the parks already. Reminds me of when River Belle went to a sandwich/salad menu out of the blue. It makes me thing that Resort food management is strictly looking at costs of goods and trying to minimize uniqueness to streamline and save money for "american" fare. I hope we don't see any more of this (though I cant see how you can change places like Cafe Orleans, French Market, and Rancho del Zocalo into generic locales).

    I liked the turkey dip there but I'm looking forward to trying a few of the new things on the menu.

    Please don't ask me how I feel, I feel fine

    I always found it strange you couldn't get a burger there.

    Ok - but the burger patties in the parks are not very good. Seem frozen to me and dry.

    Honestly, we have never eaten at Flo's, the menu didn't appeal. Partly because I have a picky husband, and son, and a lot of the items I liked seemed too heavy for enjoyment in the heat.
    Minus the burger, the are a few things on this menu that appeal to me and Whistler would eat the burger. I have a feeling those Blue Plate specials may be some of the former menu items rotating in.

    I do not know how to break the news to my daughter that there is no more ribs. That was her favorite meal at the resort and now it is gone. I do not know any other place that has ribs (other than few table service places), however I know a lot a places that serve burgers, and a club sandwiches. And now Flos has what every other place has. I was also a big fan of the turkey dip, but that sadly is also gone. They do have fried chicken, however that for me is a Plaza thing. It sucks that Disney introduces unique food items and then eventually replaces them with the same old burger/sandwich items.

    They took my ribs away again?! First Taste Pilots, and now Flo's.

    This is exactly us. "Comfort food"/heavy food has never appealed to me, so I'm excited to actually eat there. I want to try the BLT/turkey sandwich and the Cobb salad. Neither of those things are groundbreaking, but they're also not available anywhere else in the park.

    My favorite salad (at the Greek place) is currently MIA. Hope the Greek food returns soon...

    Swung by today and tried the pot pie. It was actually a pretty tasty dish with a little kick of spice to it! The crust was flaky but not particularly a distinct flavor. The fruit on the side was very juicy and good as well. Definitely worth the $10.99 price tag. My friends had the fried chicken and it's pretty similar (if not the same) to Plaza Inn's. One friend's dark meat pieces were very tasty, but the breast piece was unfortunately very dry. The garlic mashed potatoes were really good though!

    I heard that the PI Cobb was changed to a different salad, so this salad at Flo's may be its replacement. Not sure what the new salad at PI is now.

    There used to be a Cobb salad at Plaza Inn, and I'm sad to say they changed it some time ago. I'm not a fan of the new salad.

    My husband has the same complaint since that's the location they use for many themed events, which means the regular menu is only available a couple months out of the year at this point.

    Found my tweet about it from last November. I'm not sure that it's the same now as I don't even bother to look any more. I'll make it a point to go look next time I'm there.

    It appears that I didn't post about it here. Odd. You know how much I talk about food...

    As someone else pointed out - blue plate specials would bring back previous menu items.
    Example - ribs, mashed, veggies

    Yea I don't eat burgers in theme parks. They are just nasty to me. I know some people (husband and sons) have no issues with those kind of burgers but my taste buds say YUCK!

    We are picky here too for the most part so nothing really jumped out there in the past. Now I do want to try the turkey sandwich (minus the tomato).

    I was thinking that they were doing the blue plates as former menu items so as not to upset some that might prefer that menu.
