What's your favorite DTD Counter Service Restaurant?

Mine is Earl of Sandwich.

DH has never been to DTD and I haven't been for several years, but I'm definitely planning a day for this next trip and can't wait to try EoS!

The one time I wanted to try Earl of Sandwich the line snaked past the counter three times and almost made it out the back door. I skipped it and went to Pollo Campero, which so far is my favorite DTD counter service restaurant.

Earl of Sandwich is one of out top picks, even if you have to brave the line at times. We havent tried much over on the DTD Westside - but seems to be more sitdown restaurants on that end.

Cooke's of Dublin. Yum!

My DH will not go to EofS. Says he as eaten there a few times (off property) and their sandwiches are overrated. I ate there once and thought it was okay.

Earl and Polo a runner up. Polo has awesome burgers! We stay far away from those Baby Cakes, yuck! I'm sorry, we tried them and to us they were just plain nasty.

Earl of Sandwich! I think they do a pretty good job of pushing people thorough the long lines most of the time.

The Earl does pretty good salads too. I had them several times this summer. Of course, I eat salads so I can eat CARROT CAKE COOKIES. mickey

I've only been to two DTD counter service restaurants (Pollo Campero and EoS). I enjoyed them both and can't pick a favorite. So it's a tie for me.

I keep seeing this Cookes of Dublin and I so misread it as Cookies of Dublin and I was about to get on the bandwagon and be like... "Oh yeah! Gonna get me some cookies this time!"

But alas... misreading has saddened me...

Well I have been to every one so I guess my opinion would be objective. For a lunch time spot I would go for Earl of Sandwich. For dinner it would be Cooks of Dublin.
Finding just the right picture out of over 6,000 is no simple task.

It's a tie between Wolfgang Puck's and Earl of Sandwich for me, BUT I have not yet tried "Cookies" of Dublin (Mase, you consistently crack me up!!), so I'm going to give that one a whirl the next time I'm down there!

Actually we never go over to that side of DTD but last week when we were there we did and I was like hey look it's that "cookie" place...LOL

As far as lunch places we have really only ate at Wolfgang Pucks and Trex both of which we love but next year for our anniversary trip we will have full control and I'm hoping to get to try out some places that we haven't been before.
