We all had a great meal. I loved the capresse sandwich. Be sure to ask for the carrots or you will get french fries. My husband had some kind of beef thing that was messy but wonderful. And you can find a table fairly easy.

After visiting numerous counter service restaurants at Disney- this is one of our favorites. I love how close it is to Jedi Training and the Star Wars ride. Our favorite meals are the dark side chicken and waffles, caprese sandwich, and the burger. On the menu the burger is listed as cheeseburger, but due to distant restrictions we always get... More

Our group was in a hurry so Backlot was our choice. Limited menu but lines move fast and plenty of seating. Great chili-dogs and good options for little kids. High prices for what you get but that's eating at Disney.

When we visit Disney Hollywood Studios we usually eat here. The price is good, the service fast and the food is average for Disney.

Ate at backlot twice on March 24th while at Hollywood Studios. Both times the person in charge of the gluten food Alexis was as good a server as I've seen. I know that's not her title. She took the time and care to make sure our order was right. Disney has it figured out its hard sometimes to find gluten-free... More

Food not the best and like most Disney fast food restaurants food not that great, usual food available burgers,hot dogs and sandwiches. In my opinion food quality has fallen to a very poor standard over the past few years and to be honest apart from the decor the food is pretty much the same in all of their restaurants. If... More

We stopped here for an impromptu dinner after Pizza Rizzo was unexpectedly closed. Found the menu to be a bit limited, but the food that we had was quite tasty! Lots of options for outdoor seating.

We were hungry and needed a quick meal. This was our travel day to Disney and went to Hollywood Studios for our FastPass to Toy Story Midway Mania. We stopped over at the Backlot. It was typical Disney quick serve food. I had the chicken and waffles (which is really chicken nuggets and regular waffles). It was good, just not... More

We ate here on our visit due to the fact we liked the outdoor seating and the selection was good, fresh salads, generous sized hamburger, with bbq brisket on top, hot dogs, chicken, something for everyone.

The food is nothing to write home about. The burger is okay and the fries are okay. There is nothing special about it. As is typical with most things Disney, expect to pay more for food here than something equivalent outside the parks. What is good about the Backlot Express is that is it an area to get a quick...
