Trilo-Bites (don’t Google trilobite) is a kiosk located just past the entrance to DinoLand USA from Discovery Island sort of across from the entrance to The Boneyard. Basically, after you pass Flame Tree Barbecue, you’ll see it on the right. Or if you’re walking from DinoLand Proper, you’ll see it on the left before crossing the bridge and arriving at Flame Tree.
Trilo has served a variety of items over the years and at one point was the Park’s turkey leg outlet before moving on to some dessert-y type items.
Why they moved away from this deliciousness…
More recently, this $5.49 Buffalo Chicken Waffle Slider was the featured item, which was quite tasty even if it was on the small side.
But as of last October or so, Bites has been offering a “Buffalo Chicken Chips.” This past weekend, they eliminated the sundaes in favor of the “milkshake” options and added the Countdown Lime Margarita that would be prudent to try assuming it’s not the pre-mixed Cuervo stuff that has been showing up around the Park recently. It’s worth noting that Disney’s version of the “milkshake” is more like “soft serve in a plastic cup rather than a paper bowl.”
For $7.99, the portion is pretty massive – it’s easily more food than four or five of those BLTs that we recently saw at The Smiling Crocodile for just about ~$2.50 more money.
The shredded buffalo chicken is the same as what was served in the sliders – it has a little bit of a spicy kick to it that may be a little mild for those looking for something seriously spicy. You could ask about adding some more hot sauce. But I appreciated the peppery spice of the chicken against the piquant spiciness of the creamy blue cheese on top of Disney’s standard “house made potato chips,” which were fresh, crunchy, salty, and perhaps most importantly, plentiful. The arugula on top basically makes this a salad and adds a leafy crunch to each bite and the ranch dressing drizzled on top helped bring the whole thing together. Each plate is made fresh to order, which goes a long way too.
Overall, this is one of the better values on shareable snacks available in the Park and one I would return to time and time again if it weren’t in my job description to try everything that sounds much, much nastier.
We’ll move along to try a couple relatively new additions to Restaurantosaurus.
