ABC Commissary - Disney's Hollywood Studios

Yesterday, we had a lunch at the ABC Commissary at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Because of a terrible meal we had there probably 10 years ago, we did not dine at the ABC Commissary for a long time, but the food has improved significantly, and we all enjoyed our lunch.  

The ABC Commissary, a quick service restaurant, has seven different gluten free entrees to choose from.  

I ordered my favorite gluten free chicken tenders and french fries.  The chicken tenders are not only gluten free, but they are also free of dairy, soy, and egg.  My friend Sarah from Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW has a list of allergy friendly chicken tenders locations on her blog.  You can view it here.   

This is probably the third time I have ordered this meal at the ABC Commissary, and the fries and chicken are always cooked perfectly.  

As far as gluten free treats go, the ABC Commissary has Enjoy Life Chocolate Chip Cookies and OMG...It's Gluten Free Fudge Brownies.  We just had one of the amazing OMG brownies last weekend, so I ordered a package of the crunchy chocolate chip cookies to share with my family.  The cookies are free of gluten, wheat, dairy, casein, egg, soy, peanuts/tree nuts, sulphites, sesame, fish, shellfish, and potato.  They are not my favorite gluten free chocolate chip cookies, but everyone seemed to enjoy them.  

The theming of the ABC Commissary is Art Deco, featuring film and TV posters from the past and present.  

My daughter Emma tried to block me from taking a picture of one of the many palm trees scattered throughout the restaurant.  For some reason, people kept walking by and shaking this tree, and I could just imagine all the dust flying around in the air because of that.

The allergy-friendly menu for the ABC Commissary lists the following gluten free options:

Entrees - chicken club sandwich, 1/3 lb fresh Angus bacon cheeseburger, 1/3 lb fresh Angus cheeseburger, or chicken tenders served with apple slices, steamed broccoli, or french fries; Asian salad served with chicken or salmon, cabbage, carrots, edamame beans, oil and vinegar dressing; 6 oz strip steak served with steamed broccoli and french fries; roasted salmon served with steamed broccoli and french fries

Kids' Meals (include choice of small lowfat milk or small Dasani water) - cheeseburger or chicken tenders served with carrot sticks and applesauce (french fries available upon request)

Desserts - brownie, chocolate chip cookie, chocolate mousse

Earlier this week, I had the roasted salmon with steamed broccoli and french fries for lunch.  Everything was cooked perfectly, and the salmon tasted fresh, but I had to add a little salt to the salmon and broccoli, because they were underseasoned for my taste.  Overall, I enjoyed my meal, and would order it again.

The last time I visited the ABC Commissary, I tried the chocolate mousse, which my whole family enjoyed.  It is nice to have a gluten free dessert options beyond the allergy-friendly brownies and chocolate chip cookies at a quick service restaurant.
