A Tour Around 50’s Prime Time Cafe
When you enter inside it’s just like stepping inside your gramma’s house of the 50’s. If you have younger kids you may have to explain the small black and white tv’s to them.
If you are lucky you can sit in one of these corner tables complete with your own tv. Check out how retro everything is. Take a close look around at the appliances and decor there is so much to pick up here.
The fried chicken and the meatloaf are the star dishes at this restaurant. Also if you are a milkshake fan they are stellar here! If you are a PB&J fan you are going to want to give the shake of the same name a try.
50’s Prime Time Cafe Dishes
The following is a look at some of the food we have gotten at 50’s Prime Time Cafe.
This was my favorite of the two dishes. The dish has a lot of flavor and was real white meat chicken. It was a whole lot better than your frozen pot pie ( at least the ones we make at home).
Your standard fried chicken and mashed potatoes here! The chicken was nice and tender and I enjoyed the mashed potatoes but I wasn’t overwhelmed by it. My husband ended up liking it more than his pot pie so we switched!
50’s Prime Time Cafe Recommendation
Overall our 50’s Prime Time Cafe was great. We challenged ourselves the whole meal to stay on our best behavior. It was a competition to see who was getting into less trouble. It was also a good laugh seeing adults getting in trouble across the room, the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are not one for getting a little fun poked at you, then this restaurant may not be one for you. Odds are if you go here you are going to get picked on at least once! If you have eaten here before we would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
