Hungry Bear Restaurant in Disneyland is easily one of my favorite places to eat in the park. It is nestled in Critter Country as you walk past Splash Mountain, right before the Winnie The Pooh Ride. I love the beautiful green trees surrounding the restaurant and the view of Rivers of America as you eat. Feels as if you are right in the middle of the wilderness 🙂 You can eat for roughly under $15.00 per adult.
As you walk through the entry over the bridge you will see a number of cashiers waiting to take your order. Once you place your order, you wait right at the kitchen for your order.
Here is half of the menu posted on the front of the kitchen.
….and here are some more choices 🙂
My first pick is the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich. I have ordered this a number of times and each time I like it more and more. There is a juicy slaw over top the fried green tomatoes inside a soft whole wheat bun. You’ll never miss the meat from this vegetarian sammy:)
You can choose between onion rings, sweet potato fries and slaw as your sides. For the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich we chose the onion rings. They are great. Real onions inside, crispy and delicious.
We also sampled the Crispy Chicken Sandwich with slaw as it’s side. The crispy chicken sandwich is just ok, however my husband discovered if you put the slaw on top of the chicken, it makes the sandwich much better.
Here’s a nice look at the slaw. Mango, onion, peppers, cabbage. It’s nice and refreshing.
One of my boys ordered the Kids Chicken Breast Nuggets and Apples. The chicken is great, however I would recommend this for kids 5 years and under since this is the portion size 🙂
My other kiddo wanted a cheeseburger. This is the Classic Cheeseburger. Comes with lettuce and tomato. He took off the veggies and enjoyed the burger. I tried a bite and it was a decent burger.
We chose the sweet potato fries with the burger. They are crispy, nicely salted and a perfect addition to any burger or sandwich.
This gives you a sense of the nice atmosphere are around the tables. It’s open, light and relaxing with the beautiful scenery.
Here was the view from our tables in the back. How beautiful are the Rivers of America?
For the sake of the review (haha) we tried the desserts 🙂 First up is the little lattice cherry pie. You could also choose a peach pie as well.
I must say, it was a good little pie. Flaky crust and cherry pie filling inside. They even warm it up for you 🙂
The highlight of our meal was this sparkly bumblebee topped Lemon Cupcake. Soft cake with a sweet lemon filling. Trust me on this, you’ve got to try this one 🙂
Here’s a glimpse of the lemon filling inside. The four of us agreed that we are not much of lemon dessert fans, but this one changed our thoughts for sure. Looking forward to ordering it again 🙂
We caught The Mark Twain Riverboat floating by. Gorgeous views here at Hungry Bear. Hope you enjoy!
