For those planning a vacation to the Disneyland Resort in Southern California, knowing what to expect at park restaurants can be really helpful. Some guests want quiet, full service restaurants that usually aren’t filled with lots of children. Other guests are visiting with children and want quick, easy food service they can utilize before heading back out into the parks for more rides and attractions. And since prices can vary quite a bit between restaurants as well, it’s helpful to know what to expect.
This article will give a detailed description of the Taste Pilot’s Grill Restaurant located in the Condor Flats area of Disney’s California Adventure theme park. The Taste Pilot’s Grill Restaurant can be found right next door to the Soarin’ Over California attraction.
The Taste Pilot’s Grill is a counter service restaurant, although unlike most counter service restaurants in the Disneyland Resort, guests can enjoy indoor seating here. In fact, the Taste Pilot’s Grill offers more indoor seating than most restaurants around the Disneyland Resort. Seating consists of both tables with freestanding chairs as well as booths. Booths are typically half bench seating and half freestanding chair seating. Customers wait in line, order, receive their food, and then seat themselves. The Taste Pilot’s Grill also has a fair amount of outdoor seating available. The Taste Pilot’s Grill has an aviation theme, and all of the metal in the design makes one think of an airplane hangar.
The Taste Pilot’s Grill menu includes, among other things, barbecued pork ribs served with criss cut fries and coleslaw. Other food options are chicken sandwiches, barbecue or plain. Guests can also order a salad topped with chicken breast pieces, or three different types of burgers including chili burgers, cheddar burgers, or a bleu cheese burger. Burgers are all served with fries or salad. French fries and onion rings can also be purchased separately. Additionally, customers can order chocolate or vanilla shakes, among other dessert choices.
