Dinner at D-Luxe Burger
D-Luxe Burger, located in Disney Springs, is a quick service restaurant that serves up some of the best burgers on Disney property. It’s also one of the few dining locations in Disney Springs that is owned and operated by the Disney Company, which means that they follow Disney protocol when it comes to handling special dietary needs. Plus, it’s just plain delicious. Recently, we stopped by D-Luxe Burger for a quick dinner.
D-Luxe Burger has a rustic theme and charm. It’s meant to fit into the bigger story of Disney Springs (and is based off a former rancher), which is a nice touch. You can read about the restaurant’s back-story in my post about my first visit to D-Luxe Burger.
There’s lots of charm in this restaurant from the moment you walk inside.
Probably the only negative about D-Luxe Burger is the size. It’s relatively small for a quick service restaurant. And, seating can be hard to find sometimes. Usually, Brandon and I find ourselves seated at the counter seating near the back of the restaurant because it’s the only available option. The restaurant also doesn’t have a bathroom. So, you’ll need to use the facilities located nearby.
Of course, we visit D-Luxe Burger for the food. I think we would both have to agree that they have the best burgers on Disney property, especially compared to normal quick service burgers. There are lots of options available too. D-Luxe does not currently have an allergy-friendly menu. But, you will get to talk to a chef when you visit. They will make sure that your food is prepared safely and answer any questions you might have.
After placing your oder, you’ll be given a pager and your meal will be brought to you. If you have a special dietary need, your meal will be served in a to-go bag and not on a tray (if you’re dining in).
Brandon and I ordered the Classic Duo combo. This can be easily made gluten free by swapping out the regular bun for a gluten free bun or lettuce wrap. The combo comes with two classic cheeseburgers, a regular French Fry, and two soft drinks. For those guests who are dairy free, you can order this combo without cheese to make it safe for your special dietary need.
The classic cheeseburger at D-Luxe Burger is served with lettuce, pickle, tomato, and onion. And, you can customize as needed. Brandon typically orders his without pickle or tomato. So, simply ask the cast member to remove these items from your order. If you want ketchup, mustard, or mayonnaise, you can add as much or as little as you want after your burger arrives to your table.
The French fries at D-Luxe Burger are naturally gluten free and dairy free and are made in a dedicated fryer. This means that you don’t have to worry about cross-contamination issues.
The fries have been a little inconsistent in our opinion. On some occasions, we have felt they tasted like they had been sitting around for a while or fried in very old oil. On this visit, we were pleasantly surprised and thought they were the tastiest we have had in a long time.
Of course, ever the condiment queen, I can’t help but enjoy lots of dipping sauces. And, D-Luxe Burger has plenty of them! All of the sauces at D-Luxe are gluten free. Be sure to speak to a chef about dairy free options. The last time I asked, the 3 Honey Mustard and Curry Ketchup (both pictured here) were both gluten free and dairy free. These two sauces, along with the chipotle mayonnaise, are my three favorite sauces. They are so delicious with the fries or even with your burger!
D-Luxe Burger continues to be one of our go-to quick service options in Disney Springs. With outstanding burgers, delicious fries, and tasty dipping sauces, you can customize the options to your heart’s content. We’ve never had a bad burger here either. It is important to note that the prices are also a little on the high side. And, we recommend the combos as a potential option for cost savings. If you’re craving burgers and fries, you really can’t go wrong with D-Luxe Burger.
