Chorizo Fundido – Served with House-made Tortilla Chips – $6.50

This dish was returned from last year and it was easy to see why.  Coming from someone who grew up in Wisconsin my standards for cheese are quite high and this was delicious.  The texture was smooth and not greasy.  The chorizo broke apart easily so that it could be distributed throughout the bowl and added a subtle sense of heat, but not overwhelming.  The cilantro taste was a strong in some bites but could easily be left off if you are not a fan.  The only place this fell a bit flat was with the chips.  I wish it included the chips they use in the other Mexican restaurants at the parks that are heartier, but not a deal breaker by any means.  At $6.50 I would definitely pick this up to pair with my favorite beer.

We didn’t sample any of the beers offered at this booth, but there is a huge selection that is sure to please everyone. Knowledgeable cast members are also standing by to help you select your perfect beer.

Did you happen to try this booth? What was your favorite thing on the menu?
