*This dining experience took place in May 2014.
When it comes to fried food, you know that I’m a total sucker. I adore chicken tenders, fish and chips and just about anything that comes out of Cooke’s of Dublin. This is a brief post, as I popped by recently to meet up with a friend and her family while they were vacationing at Disney. She’s also gluten free and dairy free, and let me tell you sharing this restaurant with her was so exciting. She & her family liked it so much they came back that evening for dinner! (never underestimate the power of gluten free & dairy free fried foods!)
On this particular visit, we stopped by right at 11 a.m. when they open. I like doing this because this place gets super packed at lunch time. I ordered my new favorite – shrimp & chips and my friend ordered the gluten free fish & chips. For a full list of gluten free & dairy free options, see my previous post about Cooke’s of Dublin.
I think the only thing I can say is that this restaurant consistently under-salts their food. I try to make sure I get a packet or two of salt and put it on as soon as I get my hot fried food. Salting is key with fried foods for me. Add in some cocktail sauce, and you’re good to go.
Overall, I always enjoy my visits to Cooke’s of Dublin, and it has become one of my go-to spots at Downtown Disney for quick service. It’s fast, delicious, and affordable.
I give this experience a 7 out of 10.
