Monk: Disney Food Blog was a great resource for the Monk family on our recent Disney trip, and they’ve checked out and reviewed the newest barbecue restaurant at the park: the Toy Story-themed Roundup Rodeo BBQ at Hollywood Studios. Its a full service restaurant, which means reservations are required and prices are $45 for adults and $25 for kids 3-9.
In short, they were not impressed by the level of barbecue compared with quick-service options in other parks but found that it might be a good option for a group with a wide variety of food preferences. It also doesn’t have characters stopping by tables, but that could be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective.
Based on this, if I do make it to Disney anytime soon I will likely go to The Polite Pig in Disney Springs versus breaking the bank for what sounds like mediocre barbecue at Roundup Rodeo BBQ.

Monk: In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a video of Irish people trying ribs, brisket, and pulled pork along with a couple of other southern staples. Choice quote: “My mam’s Sunday roast tastes way better than that.”
Description: We decided to have our contributors try a selection of classic American BBQ foods. Though we do have BBQ’s here in Ireland they are very different to what you might get in America. Generally they include a lot more sausages and more rain.
