Peco Bills Question..

Ok folks..Now that I've got my tickets for MNSSHP, I'am browsing the menus at CS restaurants in MK and it's been a while since I've been to Peco..I noticed they do a steak and chicken platter..We tend to eat at CHH at MK for CS meals and also Cosmic Rays..But my DS loves steaks and chicken and was curious what this platter was like.?..Has anyone tried it.?

I haven't tried it, but Pecos Bills is one of my "go to" spots in the MK.

Here are some pics from the Disney Food Blog, if interested:

Never had it myself but I think personally, I'll pass. The steak doesn't look like a steak to me and pulled pork just by itself doesn't do justice for me. I prefer it in the sandwich form.

And if interested, one review from the DFB:

DH tried the steak at Pecos Bill's.....ONCE....and he will NEVER try it again. It isn't really steak. It is some piece of meat with fake grill marks on it. DH said it, in no way, tasted like a steak. Some of the other food we've had at Pecos Bills is good, but if your DS is expecting a real steak, he will be disappointed! Pecos Bill's and Cosmic Rays have very similar food, a lot of the meals are identical. We prefer Cosmic Rays because it is larger than PB and we don't feel as cramped, and we can get basically the same food.

Cosmic Ray's has a Rib and Chicken platter that was very good. It is a big portion too. We split it. If your DS likes ribs too, I recommend this over PB chicken and steak platter.

PB has the chicken and steak platter, but no ribs option.

We had the Pecos Bill Karubi style short ribs for dinner last month and thought they were quite good. And large enough to share if you don't want a lot.

The Walt Disney Company is not serving up horse meat, and we don't need to be starting any unfounded rumors like that. I agree that the steak looks anemic, but just because it is a lower quality cut doesn't mean that it doesn't fit the definition of a steak.

Kirsten, with all due respect you miss KFs humour. In the UK we unfortunately had a recent spell when tried and tested pre done food was labelled one thing and turned out to be Mr Ed. I am fairly sure he is NOT trying to start a rumur that Disney serves up horse!

Ah-Hem...Oops..Sally-Ann is quite correct...This was my Scottish sence of humour kicking in..Of course I'am not accusing WDW of serving up ( real ones or animated ) ..There seems to be a massive culture gap between Scottish and American humour..Now I understand why it took our Billy Connelly ( Scottish comedian .) so long to break thro in the USA..From now on I'll type in brackets that this is a joke ...Under no circumstances were any animals ( Living or Animatronic ) injured by the WDW company in the making of this joke...

Thank you for the clarification. mickey

I did miss the humor in it, even though I was aware of the horse meat issues that the UK recently had. It is part of my job on this website to make sure that rumors don't start from here. These things can spread through online communities like wildfire and if I missed it I am sure other people will too. Sometimes I have to be the wet blanket here and perhaps my tact is not up to par right now.

Just to clarify, I was in no way, shape or form, implying that Disney is trying to sell people anything other than beef, pork or chicken. When I said it isn't really steak, what I meant was it isn't steak in the traditional sense. It isn't cooked on a really hot, open flame grill, with real genuine grill marks on it. That is how most people think of steak. The steak at PB is not cooked that way, but for some people, it may be the most delicious piece of meat they have ever eaten at Disney. That was not the case with my own DH. I would never, and will never, start, support or reinforce a rumor about Disney on this, or any other website. I was simply stating my own unique experience.

Right. No one is suggesting that thing isn't a piece of beef. But hamburgers and chuck roast are beef, and cube steaks and Salisbury steaks are even called "steak." But none of them is really steak, and neither is that piece of mystery beef pictured above.

That's what I was trying to say regarding my comment on how the steak didn't look like steak to me, comparing that particular steak to traditional steak like AnnielovesDisney described earlier. It's definitely different compared to something you would get at a regular steakhouse. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough explaining that so if I caused any confusion or riled things up when it didn't need to be, I sincerely apologize for that.

Hey, if you are buying steak from a QS window, then you deserve what you get. Burgers, hot dogs, BBQ, sandwiches, and salads - beyond that, you are much braver than me...

You were not being a wet blanket Kristen, just doing your job as you stated. I just read KF's post the same way you did and thought the same things. Glad things dot clarified fast & thanks Sally-Ann.

I had a steak steak once from Peco's, it was ok but then I wasn't expecting TS standard of cut/cooking. It was good for what it was.. But from that point on, proper steak is ordered from TS places only.
