Disney World Loses the Burgers at the Magic Kingdom's Pecos Bill Cafe
Walt Disney World is changing the menu at one of the Magic Kingdom's most popular quick-service restaurants.
Starting Thursday, the burgers and barbecue will have gone away at the Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, to be replaced by a Tex-Mex-inspired menu of fajitas and rice bowls. Entree prices now will range from $9.99-$14.49.

The new beef burrito at Pecos Bill
The Pecos Bill's toppings bar remains, but switches offerings to support the new menu, including salsas, peppers, and cheeses.
The changes at Pecos Bill leave Tomorrowland's Cosmic Ray's Cafe and the Tomorrowland Terrace as the remaining locations in the Magic Kingdom for quick-service burgers... at least for now. Before the end of the year, Disney will open the Jungle Cruise-themed Jungle Navigation Company Skipper Canteen restaurant in the old Adventureland Veranda location. Disney has not yet announced the menu for that restaurant, but it's possible that some of the items from the old Pecos Bill menu could appear over there.

Rate and Review:
Surprised by this move but not upset. I am not a burger eater while at WDW but many others are. Unfortunately, I've had better burgers (and pizza) just outside of WDW. Why is it so hard for WDW to make burgers and pizza right? Nice change at Pecos Bill's. What does this mean for Tortuga Tavern though (Tex-Mex offerings as well) just a few steps away from Pecos Bill's?
I'm happy with this change, as I'm not a theme park burger fan, personally. I do LOVE the Lobster Burger at Grand Floridian Cafe, but if it's going to be fast food quality, give me a Whopper or Quarter Pounder.
Now if only they would open Tortuga Tavern, the Tomorrowland Terrace, and the Horseshoe year round. Dining at the Magic Kingdom is horrible compared to Disneyland. Good luck finding a decent breakfast at a relatively affordable price too!
wait so the fixin's bar is gone?!
This seems to me like another subtle way of getting more money out of the paying guests. So many people were not necessarily fans of burgers but got them because of the price, the value of the "fixin's bar" where you could load up on vegetables and feed a large family and let's face it, a lot of teenagers would rather have a burger than anything else.
I am disappointed that Pecos changed their menu. I loved getting the burger fries and corn on the cob. I'm not a fan of tex-mex. Why don't they just add another restaurant to the park. :(
I hope the food is as good as the counter-service Mexican restaurant in the World Showcase/
