The Fry Basket Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

The Fry Basket Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Pickle fries! Pickle fries! Pickle fries! Did we say pickle fries?

The absolutely delicious Pickle Fries served with dill ranch are new this year at The Fry Basket. Obviously, you have to love pickles and dill to enjoy these. If you are a pickle and dill fan, trust us when we say don’t skip over on the Pickle Fries.

Really, all of the fries are fantastic. There’s even a plant-based option: Adobo Yuca Fries with Garlic-Cilantro Aïoli.

As the sole vegetarian of the team who eats a lot of plant-based dishes, Allyson recommends these. She sometimes prefers Yuca fries over regular French fries, especially the ones at Nomad Lounge in Animal Kingdom.

Tip: The Fry Flight can usually be modified. After you pay and hand your receipt to the Cast Member next to the stand, just ask if you can modify the flight. This is a good option for those who don’t eat meat, hence the one set of fries has bacon.

We’ve never turned our backs on carbs, so we’re excited The Fry Basket has returned for a second year in a row.

Photos & Reviews

Pickle Fries

Fried dill pickle “fries” served with a dill ranch sauce.

Fry Basket Pickles
  • Price: $5.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 5.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Yes. Yes. Yes. Not greasy, even though they are fried. If you want PICKLE, skip the shake at Brew Wing and get these! Yes – it is “just” a fried pickle but nom nom nom.
Felicia: I love fried pickles, especially fried pickle spears and these did not disappoint. Crispy. The ranch goes well with it.
Ally: Wow. These are so good. They aren’t exactly fries but more fried pickles, but still taste amazing.

Adobo Yuca Fries with Garlic-Cilantro Aïoli

Crispy yucca fries served with a tasty garlic-cilantro aïoli sauce.

Fry Basket Yuca
  • Price: $5.50
  • Special Diets: Plant-based, Gluten-friendly
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Interesting texture from the yuca and coating. Wanted more flavor.
Heather: Love these so much more this year! Very good flavor. Kind of heavy, but that’s ok, so am I.
Felicia: These were very good. The yuca is thicker and a bit chewier than a traditional potato fry, but has great garlicky and salty flavor.
Allyson: I love yuca fries so much better than standard fries (go to Nomad Lounge for them)! The aioli is also fantastic. Highly recommend.

Fry Flight

A collection of fries served 3 different ways: Sea Salt and Malt and Vinegar, Barbecued Bacon Fries with Smoked Aïoli, and Sweet Potato Casserole Fries with Candied Pecans, Toasted Marshmallow Cream and Caramel Whiskey.

Fry Basket Fry Flight
  • Price: $7.50
  • Special Diets: Only the Sea Salt and Vinegar option is plant-based
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Liked the sweet potato fries but the others were plain. Wish the fries could be ordered individually vs just in a flight.
Heather: I love everything but the plain ones with vinegar. And I only don’t like them because they don’t feel special enough to be a part of that flight. But the sweet potato ones are delicious. They are coated in yummy. Just know your fingers are gonna get sticky.
Felicia: Giving this a 5 because the flight has 3 very unique fry options that are all good. I probably wouldn’t order any of them individually but together it’s a good purchase.
Allyson: Just an ok fry flight. I recommend the other fry options instead.

Stone Brewing Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager

A light and refreshing Mexican style lager brewed with salt and lime by Stone Brewing in San Diego, CA.

Fry Basket Lager
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Very, very smooth. Like a fist bump with a flavor ninja – not a TON of flavor, but it doesn’t need it to still be a rockstar. Just a good, basic beer.
Felicia: I love this. So refreshing and light. Slight lime flavor that isn’t too much and the salt isn’t too strong. Perfect in the heat. Love it.
Allyson: This is a nice, light beer and simple for those who aren’t into craft beer. That said, it doesn’t have a ton of flavor.

Salty Dog Cocktail

A cocktail made with Boyd & Blair Vodka with Grapefruit Juice, Ginger, Simple Syrup and Lime with a Salted Rim.

Fry Basket Salty Dog
  • Price: $12.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Loved this last year. Not so much this year. WHHHHHY ARE YOU DISAPPOINTING ME, Disney? Too sweet. Not well mixed, perhaps?
Felicia: Salty Dogs are one of my 2 favorite cocktails in normal life. This one is not my favorite but it isn’t bad. Has a bit of an artificial lime flavor and is sweeter than I prefer. Still like it though.
Allyson: I really liked this last year, but not so much this time around. It’s also very expensive.
