Frog Family Foodie Review: Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Toy Story Land — Now Open!

Inside This Post Inside This Post

After riding the wildest ride in Andy's Backyard, Slinky Dog Dash, keep the adventures going with the new Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant! Now open in Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios, this table-service restaurant offers whimsical theming and delicious barbecue-inspired cuisine. Our frog bellies were plenty full after the all-you-care-to-enjoy family-style dining. Here's everything to know about this new restaurant, including our frog family review!

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Displays with Trixie and Jessie

Overview of Roundup Rodeo BBQ

Officially open as of March 23, Roundup Rodeo BBQ is a western-themed restaurant at Walt Disney World with lots of references to the beloved "Toy Story" films. You're shrunken down to the size of a toy as you're surrounded by the colorful displays Andy has come up with.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Entrance

Roundup Rodeo is located in Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios. The restaurant can be found just after the entrance on the right-hand side. The restaurant is table-service so advance dining reservations are highly recommended. Check out Tad's rad video for all the wild details, and keep on reading for our full review!

Fun fact: Roundup Rodeo is the first "Toy Story" table-service restaurant in the world!

Roundup Rodeo BBQ Theming

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Bo-Peep and sheep figure

Just like the rest of the immersive land, you're the size of a toy at Roundup Rodeo. Andy has created a new rodeo play area inspired by Woody's Roundup. You even get to ride in on a stick horse if you would like to make a wild entrance! There's a fun mix of space, western and train station playsets. See large displays of Woody, Jessie, Trixie, Bo Peep and more.

As with so many Disney projects, the attention to detail is incredible. We were sitting by a giant ruler, which apparently is to scale with all of the displays. How neat! The restaurant is covered from floor to ceiling in hidden gems. Speaking of, there's 14 hidden Mickeys throughout if you are up for the challenge (we've only found one so far, thanks Tad!). Periodically you'll hear fun announcements from other toys with some interactive elements (Be careful, Andy's coming!).

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Interior theming examples

While there are character displays, note that this is not a character dining location. If you're interested in meeting the famous toys, there are outdoor meet-and-greets throughout the day with Buzz, Woody and Jessie.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ Menu

Roundup Rodeo BBQ

Beverages include fountain drinks (Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Fanta Orange, Root Beer, Minute Maid Zero Sugar Lemonade, Powerade Mountain Blast), freshly brewed iced tea, milk and water.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Snake Eye Margarita, Partysaurex Tex and Frozen Cowpoke Cocoa

For an additional cost, enjoy a variety of specialty drinks such as Partysaurus Tex (lemonade with a hint of strawberry topped with gummy worms) and Frozen Cowpoke Cocoa (basically a chocolate milkshake. Yum!). Grown-up frogs can enjoy beer, wine and specialty alcoholic drinks like the Snake Eye Margarita (definitely had a kick to it!).

Salads at Roundup Rodeo BBQ

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Cheddar biscuits

Included starters:

  • The Prospector’s Homemade Cheddar Biscuits with sweet pepper jelly
  • Rootin’ Tootin Tomato Salad — Cucumbers, pickled red onion, white balsamic vinaigrette (Plant-based)
  • Rex’s Romaine and Kale Salad — Apples, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, green goddess dressing
  • Wheezy’s Watermelon Salad — Fresh-torn mint (Plant-based)

The salads were refreshing and all three are included so you can sample them all.

For us, the real highlight are the cheddar biscuits! We definitely asked for seconds, though lots more food was headed our way! (Since it's all-you-care-to-enjoy, you can ask for extras of whichever you like).

Choose one main entree:

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — House-smoked meats

  • Enjoy a Platter of House-Smoked Items — Evil Dr. Smoked Ribs, Buttercup's Beef Brisket, There’s a Sausage in my Boot – Fire-grilled Pork Sausage, BBQ Chicken – with Style!
  • Trixie's Plant-based Trio — Combat Carloflower with harissa drizzle and walnut gremolata, Scrumptious Bratwurst, Rip Roarin’ Rib Chop
  • Available upon request: Cedar Plank Saloon Salmon

We got the meat platter and our favorites were the beef brisket and pork sausage.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Corn on the cob

Reach for the Sides (choose four for the table):

  • The Married Spuds (Loaded potato barrels)
  • Force Field Fried Pickles
  • Slinky Doooooooooog's Mac & Cheese
  • Cowpoke Corn on the Cob (Grilled street corn)
  • Mean Old Potato Salad (Homestyle red-skinned potatoes)
  • Veggie Slaw (Plant-based)
  • Campfire-roasted Vegetables (Plant-based)
  • Buckin' Baked Beans (Plant-based)

One of the hardest decisions is choosing the sides. We first went for the Slinky Doooooooooog Mac n Cheese (I just love saying that name, plus there's goldfish crumbled on top), loaded potato barrels (loved the sauce), corn on the cob (with some nice seasoning) and fried pickles.

Later on, somehow Leap was up for trying a little more (I had too many cheddar biscuits, clearly) as he was also able to try the baked beans and veggie slaw. We suggest picking your top four favorites initially and then asking for other options if interested.

For those with picky eaters, typically the food listed is the only food available, so keep that in mind when booking. Cast members can definitely work with you, such as if perhaps a kiddo only wants more mac 'n' cheese (we've all been there). Like many restaurants, there are allergy-friendly options as well.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Desserts

Choose one dessert per person:

  • Cupcake a la Forky (Gooey Chocolate Cake, Graham Cracker, Buttercream, Sugar Cookie)
  • Bo's Lemon and Blueberry Cheesecake
  • Goat's Apple Pie
  • Billy's Chocolate Silk Pie
  • Gruff's Peach-Strawberry Pie (Plant-based)

Each person will choose their own individual dessert, and then you may be able to request addition options as well. We liked that there were a variety of flavors to choose from for the mini pies. Our favorite dessert though has to be the adorable Forky cupcake!

Our Final Thoughts on Roundup Rodeo BBQ

Roundup Rodeo BBQ — Interior theming

We loved all the theming and fun moments for the kids and kids at heart, like riding a stick horse or signing the check with a gigantic pencil. There is a plentiful amount of food and a fun atmosphere, though some may want to splurge on a character dining location instead.

We highly recommend for "Toy Story" fans, barbecue fans or those wanting vibrant theming (Tad and Lily loved it!). We think Roundup Rodeo BBQ is a great addition to Toy Story Land, providing a much-needed indoor dining location. It joins the many themed restaurants that Hollywood Studios has to offer.

Can guests eat at the Roundup Rodeo if they are not attending Hollywood studios? Is there an option to make a reservation just for a lunch or does one have to have a park ticket as well?

Hi Barry!

Since Roundup Rodeo BBQ is located inside Hollywood Studios, you would need a park ticket to dine at the restaurant.

Hoppy planning!
