As most of you know by now, I ♥ burgers and consider myself to be a bit of an expert HA! In my opinion, a burger should be juicy, have good texture, not too much bread, not so huge you can’t eat it, and of course, taste delicious. And absolutely NO bread crumbs and eggs in the mix. It’s a burger…not meatloaf! It drives my husband crazy when he brings me to “fancy” restaurants and I order a burger, but it’s my thing.
I stalk the food picture thread on DisBoards and had seen tons of pictures of this burger, so I knew long before we went that this is what I would order! I don’t know why we had never been to Liberty Tree Tavern. It’s definitely our kind of place. Located in the Liberty Square area of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, is has a cozy, lodge-type feel that we all loved. The décor is 18th-century Colonial-ish, with wood floors and paneling, large themed dining rooms candlestick sconces, and chandeliers all over. My favorite was the huge fireplace with hanging with copper pots…just awesome! The restaurant is a full-service and does require advance reservations for both lunch and dinner. The dinner menu is quite different than the lunch menu and is served family style.
My husband and I both ordered the burger served with Tavern Fries, which is $13.99 or (1) table service credit on the dining plan, and my daughter ordered the pot roast. This is, hands down, one of my top 3 favorite burgers at Disney. It’s just a burger done right. Nothing “crazy” or out of the ordinary. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’ve had some pretty funky combinations, but sometimes you just want a good ole-fashioned burger. It’s topped with your choice of bacon and cheddar or mushrooms and provolone. I chose bacon and cheddar. I totally groove on mushrooms and provolone, but was in the mood for more of a classic burger that day. It. Was. Delicious. It was juicy, flavorful, had a good ratio of meat and toppings to bread, lots of melted cheese…just…YUM! And the fries were pretty good too, which is saying a lot considering I’m not a fry girl. But they were crispy, perfectly salty, and not greasy, which is how fries should be! My daughter disagrees with this. She likes soggy fries!
As I mentioned, my daughter ordered the pot roast and while I didn’t try it, she gave it two thumbs up and loved all the carrots 😉
