Need to grab a bite at Hollywood Studios but don’t know where to go? Here’s your list of the best Hollywood Studios quick service restaurants! We rank all the restaurants Disney qualifies as “quick service” at Hollywood Studios, noting the best options at each!
Quick Service at Walt Disney World
Just in case you’re not familiar with what “quick service” means: quick service meals are those meals where you typically order from a cashier, pick up your food at a counter, and find your own seat. Disney dining plans divide meals into quick service and table service, the latter (not covered here) being where you’re seated and have a waiter.
According to Disney, Hollywood Studios has ten total quick service restaurants. The list is missing Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo (presumably it just needs an update). That makes it technically eleven restaurants. Really though, it’s a slightly smaller selection.
One of the eleven is Starbucks. Sunshine Day Cafe is seasonal. Catalina Eddies, Rosie’s All-American Cafe, and Fairfax Fare really comprise a single destination.
There are three indoor quick service restaurants with full menus—Docking Bay 7, ABC Commissary, and Backlot Express. And Echo Lake and Toy Story Land both have small stands with limited options.

Best Hollywood Studios Quick Service Restaurants
We have to be a bit more generous to the smaller spots in Hollywood Studios than we were ranking the best quick service options at Magic Kingdom. Smaller spots are mostly all that Hollywood Studios has.
Nonetheless, we’re going to treat three of them (the three on Sunset Boulevard over by Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror) together because they’re so close in proximity and share a seating area.
All that said, here’s the list:
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Fairfax Fare (With #4 and #5)
Rosie’s All-American Cafe (With #3 and #5)
Catalina Eddie’s (With #3 and #4)
Woody’s Lunch Box
1. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Link to the Full Menu at Docking Bay 7
Menu Highlights: Braised Shaak Roast, Felucian Garden Spread
Docking Bay 7 is the quick service restaurant in Galaxy’s Edge (aka Star Wars Land). It is the rare spot in the park that will offer more than typical theme park options, with Beef Pot Roast and Smoked Pork Ribs being among the options.
It also offers one of the best vegetarian options at Walt Disney World, the Felucian Garden Spread. While the breakfast menu is mostly standard, the lunch and dinner options are the best in the park.
2. Backlot Express
Link to the Full Menu at Backlot Express
Menu Highlights: Chicken and Waffles, Burgers
Backlot Express is located next to Star Tours. It offers more theming than the other restaurants on this list, with various studio items scattered about. Most of the seating is indoors.
The menu looks a bit shallow at first glance (chicken, burger, chicken, burger), but has great items like Chicken and Waffles and a tasty California Chicken Club.
Reminder: You really should consider the next three restaurants together, as they’re just separate stands around the same area.
3. Fairfax Fare
Link to the Full Menu at Fairfax Fare
Menu Highlights: Mojo Pulled Pork Sandwich, Empanadas Platter, 7-Layer Rice Bowl
Fairfax Fare is the stand on Sunset Boulevard with the most extensive menu. It’s easily identified as the only stand actually on Sunset Boulevard, directly across from the Beauty and the Beast theater.
Fairfax Fare has the most extensive menu of the three stands here, offering mostly Latin American cuisine, including “Mojo Pulled Pork” and fajitas. Seating is outdoors but covered in the seating area it shares with Rosie’s and Catalina Eddie’s.
4. Rosie’s All-American Cafe
Link to the Full Menu at Rosie’s All-American Cafe
Menu Highlights: Burgers
Rosie’s is a stand “hidden” behind the seating area on Sunset Boulevard. Facing the two stands, Rosie’s is on the left, Catalina Eddie’s is on the right. Rosie’s serves burgers, a green tomato sandwich, and chicken nuggets.
5. Catalina Eddie’s
Link to the Full Menu at Catalina Eddie’s
Menu Highlights: Pizzas
Catalina Eddie’s is the stand to the right of Rosie’s. It serve’s Walt Disney World’s classic, widely-despised, personal pizzas. We actually love them (photo below beneath PizzeRizzo).
6. Woody’s Lunch Box
Link to the Full Menu at Woody’s Lunch Box
Menu Highlights: BBQ Brisket Melt, “Totchos”
Before you yell at us for putting Woody’s down here, remember that we were really counting the above three restaurants together, so Woody’s is really #3, which isn’t bad for a glorified snack stand.
Woody’s Lunch Box is the only food spot in Toy Story Land. It has good, albeit limited, offerings, including a BBQ Brisket Melt, a Smoked Turkey Sandwich, a Grilled-Three Cheese Sandwich, and loaded tater tots. Seating is outdoors and limited.
7. ABC Commissary
Link to the Full Menu at ABC Commissary
Menu Highlights: BBQ Rib Platter, Angus Bacon Cheeseburger, Mediterranean Salad with Chicken
Commissary is located on the righthand side when you’re walking from the Chinese Theatre over to Star Tours. The “theme” is actually just “cafeteria,” so don’t expect much. It offers BBQ ribs, fish and shrimp, a burger, a chicken club, and more.
8. Dockside Diner
Link to the Full Menu at Dockside Diner
Menu Highlights: Hot Dog, Pulled Pork Sandwich
Dockside Diner is a hot dog stand on Echo Lake. It’s in the big boat, sort of across from the Frozen Sing-Along.
Link to the Full Menu at PizzeRizzo
Menu Highlights: Meatball Sub, Pizza
PizzeRizzo is a larger, indoor quick service location located across from Muppet Vision 3D. It offers vritually the same menu as Catalina Eddie’s. It also serves a meatball sub, though.
