Finding a good burger at Magic Kingdom is actually harder than you may think.
This list will tell you about all of the best burgers at Magic Kingdom, along with where to find them.
Ranking Magic Kingdom’s Best Burgers
#1 Angus Chuck Cheeseburger at the Plaza Restaurant
A good burger is often a simple burger. That’s definitely true for our first place pick, the Angus Chuck Cheeseburger.
Why we like it: It has all the necessary ingredients for a good burger, without anything fancy or excessive. It comes on a brioche bun and is topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion. You can also add extras, including bacon, cheddar cheese, American cheese, grilled mushrooms, and grilled onions.
The side: French fries, homemade potato chips, or a vegetable side comes on the side.
Where to get it: This burger is found at the Plaza Restaurant. The restaurant is located at the end of Main Street USA, right next to the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.
This is one of the few locations on our burger list that require a reservation, so make sure to book a table in advance. If you wait until the day of, it’s likely that you won’t find an open reservation at the time you’d like, or at all.
The Plaza is a charming restaurant that has Disney’s famous Mains Street USA styling. A meal at The Plaza is a great way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of a day at the Magic Kingdom.
The Verdict: Magic Kingdom has a surprising shortage of good burgers and the Plaza’s Angus Chuck Cheeseburger is a reliable choice. It’s a good, familiar American burger. It’s not going to blow your mind, but it will certainly satisfy your burger craving when you’re inside the park.

#2 Super Stretchy Burger at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
Don’t worry. This burger isn’t actually stretchy, aside from the mozzarella cheese sticks. Its name is just inspired by the stretchy Mrs. Incredible from The Incredibles films and was introduced during the Incredible Tomorrowland Expo.
Why we like it: This one has a flame-broiled Angus Burger topped with cheese sticks, bacon, American cheese, and garlic ranch on a brioche bun. The beauty is really found in the cheese sticks and the garlic ranch. The cheese sticks are actually fried mozzarella sticks. And honestly, it turns out that putting mozzarella sticks on a burger is a pretty good idea.
The side: French fries are the side of choice for the Super Stretchy.
Where to get it: The Super Stretchy Burger is served exclusively at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in the Tomorrowland section of the park. Cosmic Ray’s is one of the most unique quick-service restaurants at Magic Kingdom.
Its defining attribute is Sonny Eclipse, an audio-animatronic alien. Sonny sits on a stage in the restaurant and plays jazz music on his Astro-Organ. Having the built-in animatronic entertainment is a cool touch, especially for a quick-service restaurant.
The Verdict: It’s been a common thing for guests to be a bit dissatisfied with the burger options available at Magic Kingdom. That’s why the Super Stretchy Burger was such a welcome addition. It brings a more unique burger to give parkgoers a cool option that isn’t a typical, run-of-the-mill cheeseburger. It’s not a gourmet item, but it will definitely help you get to your daily quota of beef, cheese, and fried stuff.
#3 Angus Chuck Cheeseburger at the Liberty Tree Tavern
This burger is very similar to the Plaza Restaurant’s burger we mentioned earlier, but with fewest options. It’s only served during lunchtime, so it’s not an option for guests looking for dinner.
Why we like it: Much like the Plaza’s similar burger, Liberty Tree’s Angus Chuck Cheeseburger is a classic American cheeseburger. It’s topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
The side: The Angus Chuck is served with a side of fries or with fruit.
Where to get it: You can order this one at the Liberty Tree Tavern in the Liberty Square section of Magic Kingdom. The location is actually the best part about this burger.
Liberty Tree Tavern is one of our absolute favorite restaurants at Magic Kingdom. The building is a picture-perfect replica of an old colonial American building.
The wait staff also joins in on the fun, all of them being dressed in typical colonial clothing. Liberty Tree Tavern is a table-service restaurant, meaning that you’ll need to make a reservation to dine there.
It’s a popular one, so make sure to book your table well in advance.
The Verdict: Even though this burger is only served for a table-service lunch, it’s definitely better than most quick-service burgers. Kids and adults will both enjoy the colonial theming and it’s a nice place to escape from the hectic park.
#4 Bacon Cheeseburger at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
A classic bacon cheeseburger in a quick-service, Southwest setting.
Why we like it: If you’re sensing a theme of burgers at Magic Kingdom, it’s because most are just that: simple. Pecos Bill’s Bacon Cheeseburger is a normal quick-service burger with bacon and cheese.
The side: The side is what separates this burger from many others. Rather than fries or potato chips, the Pecos Bill Bacon Cheeseburger comes with a side of tortilla chips. Nothing crazy, but it’s nice to have the option of a side besides french fries.
Where to get it: You’ll find this burger at Pecol Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in the Frontierland section of the park. It’s situated on the corner, right where Adventureland connects to Frontierland. It’s easy to walk right past without noticing it, so keep an eye out.
If you’re not sure where to find it, just walk over to Splash Mountain’s splash zone and look to the other side of the pathway. Pecos Bills’ restaurant is styled to resemble an Old West saloon.
The Verdict: It may be the most boring burger on our list, but it’s still a good choice for a simple quick-service burger at Magic Kingdom. The tortilla chips make for a nice change from french fries or potato chips.
