50’s Prime Time Café in Hollywood Studios is a blast from the past! Think of all the comfort foods that you would have at Grandma’s house. Not only is the food familiar but so is the decor! From the formica tabletops and patterned wallpaper to the milkshakes and green beans, 50’s will give you that sense of deja vu all while you watch the reruns of classic television shows.
They have different varieties of milkshakes that are rich and made with real ice cream. I have tried the Peanut Butter and Jelly, Strawberry and Peeps Milk Shakes. Each one was beyond my expectation and the Peeps tasted just like the beloved Easter treat!
Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken is crunchy and moist and perfectly paired with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Gravy and seasonal veggies. I got lucky and got carrots. I’m not a green bean fan. Cousin Ryan’s Vegetable Lasagna is filled with creamy and cheesy yumminess. Mom’s Old-Fashioned Pot Roast is a meal worthy of Sunday dinner. The portion is very generous and you will not leave hungry!
If by some chance you have room for desert, the Traditional Warm Apple Crisp A la Mode can’t be better! The Pineapple Upside Down Cake is not too large but also a great ending.
I’ve eaten at 50’s many times and have never had less than a great meal. I find that the more engaged you are with your server or “cousin” the more fun you’ll have. I could sit in there forever finding cookie jars and knick knacks that were at Aunt Shirley and Aunt Millie’s houses!
