7/1/15 Update: Menu updated and items added.
Golden Oak Outpost is located across from Pecos Bill on the Adventureland side. Pecos would be directly to the right of where this picture was taken, while Big Thunder and Splash Mountains would be just ahead.
Golden Oak Outpost is a seasonal kiosk that is open when crowds are expected to be above average, usually from 10:30am through 9pm. Historically, the menu sees more shifts than most and currently serves a variety of waffle fries with toppings, chicken nuggets, and sweet potato nuggets, among other snacks and beverages.
The three available waffle fries are in front of the sweet potato nuggets.
First up is the Brown Gravy and Cheese Waffle Fries topped with Brown Gravy and White Cheddar or as literally every other review has SO CLEVERLY POINTED OUT it’s like poutine! The first problem here is portion size. Eight bucks buys you about eight limp, largely unseasoned waffle fries, this time topped with Heinz gravy and a sprinkle of very salty cheese. Nobody finished these, despite potentially looking attractive.
BLT Waffle Fries topped with Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Ranch Dressing – or as every other review has SO CLEVERLY POINTED OUT they are almost Figaro Fries! Minus cheese! Because Disney really is that cheap! If the fries were crispier, these would be pretty good, despite the brown lettuce and doesn’t-need-to-be-refrigerated-somehow-via-science bacon. It’s not a lot of food for the money though, despite tasting the best of the three options.
Barbecue Pork Waffle Fries topped with Barbecue Pork and (theoretically) Coleslaw. In this instance, your $8 buys you six waffle fries topped with a scoop of Pecos Bill’s “pulled pork,” which is in the vicinity of Lloyd’s meat tub quality. Taste here is what you would expect from the low quality pork doused in a sweet sauce over unseasoned french fries.
This is not the best picture of the Sweet Potato Nuggets, which we thought were the best of the bunch. You get about 20 piping hot morsels dusted with powdered sugar. They have a nice subtle sweetness to them along with a nice crispy exterior. And they’re less than half of the price of the fries for something a little more interesting.
