One of the most appealing attributes of the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is its theme. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nothing short of amazing. As soon as you are taken to your table, you are transported to another era; the 1950s. Perhaps the neatest part of your table is that it isn’t just a table, it’s a car! Take a step back in time to a 1950s Drive-In Movie Theater, complete with cars and concession stand. Dine under the stars as you watch old Sci-Fi movie clips on the big screen.
|The Amazingly, Delicious Chicken Wings|
For appetizers, the big hit was the chicken wings with honey-chipotle barbeque sauce. My husband still talks about those wings! Never underestimate the power of a really good chicken wing. Some other favorite appetizers were the buffalo popcorn chicken and the onion rings. It’s hard to resist the simple, yet deliciousness of an onion ring.
Entrees consist of American classics like the burger, ribs, turkey sandwich and the Reuben. I order the burger just about every time I go, and while it’s good, it’s nothing to write home about. It’s a typical burger and that’s fine with me as I enjoy typical burgers. One of the surprise favorites was the shrimp pasta. We thought we were taking a risk when we ordered it but it proved to be a solid choice. It was delicious and the serving size was huge!
It’s not a trip to Sci-Fi without a little dessert! The peanut butter chocolate cake is a constant favorite of my family’s and it is rare if the plate isn’t wiped clean. And if you didn’t get a milk shake to go with your meal, dessert if a perfect time to try a chocolate, vanilla, solar flare or Oreo cookie ice cream milk shake.
If you’ve never eaten at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, I say give it a try at least once! Although the food isn’t anything spectacular, except for the chicken wings (you musn’t forget the chicken wings!), the theme and décor is Disney magic at its finest. So “let’s all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat.”
