One of the newer dining destinations in California Adventure, Smokejumpers Grill opened its doors less than a year ago and sits right next to the Soarin ride. As you enter this quick service restaurant, you will find large menu boards above the registers surrounded by indoor and outdoor seating.
After reviewing the menu, we decided to order the bacon cheddar burger with fries and the grilled chicken and jack sandwich with chili cheese fries. We had to wait a couple of minutes before our food was ready. All of the condiments are actually self-serve in what seemed more like salad bars. All of the fresh veggies and sauce were laid out nicely. The bacon cheddar burger had some crispy bacon, but the burger patty had no flavor at all. Even with the dressing and mayo added in, the burger lacked flavor and the meat was not juicy. The grilled chicken sandwich tasted better because it came with its own chiptole aioli, but it was still pretty bland. The chicken was fairly juicy and not dry. The chili cheese fries had a bit too many beans and lacked a lot of flavor. Like most of the meal, the chili was quite bland. I also wished they melted the cheese over the fries.
Overall, Smokejumpers Grill was quite the disappointment especially for the price paid just for two meals. If you really wanted a burger and could not leave the park, then this may be a decent option, but just don’t expect too much. Leaving the park and heading to Downtown Disney would have resulted in a better meal.
