What Anaheim restaurants are near Disneyland?

Food at Disneyland is pricey. If you'd rather not eat at one of the Disneyland restaurants, simply get your hand stamped, and venture over to Downtown Disney or to one of the nearby restaurants.

There are a few Anaheim restaurants that are an easy walking distance from Disneyland and California Adventure. If you want more options, you can take the ART shuttle to the Gardenway Mall, which is conveniently located near the WorldMark Anaheim (Click to jump to the list of restaurants near WorldMark Anaheim), for those of you who are also staying there...I can just picture it now: lunch, then a NAP! :D

Taco Bell (2144 South Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA (714) 638-3429)

Carl's Jr (2119 South Harbor Boulevard, Anaheim, CA (714) 971- 5641)

Normally I don't care for the production line type fast food places, but Carl's is in a class by itself. They use fresh ingredients (no mystery meat in their burgers). They are clean, and have plenty of parking. You can drive through or go inside. If you go inside, they have a modest salad bar which can make for a nice meal or meal accompianment. The food is excellent, and the prices affordable for a young family on a budget. Try their "Baked Potatoes". -

Jack in the Box (2210 S Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA (714) 740-1131)

a great big 5 stars to for the best breakfast sandwich ever! the supreme croissant is truly a gift from the breakfast gods! add jack to the list with tony the tiger, snap crackle & and pop, cap n crunch, trix rabbit and all those childhood greats. the best thing about this sandwich is you can get it all day long, yay! -

A Restaurant in Anaheim that is NOT near Disneyland, WorldMark Anaheim, or Dolphin's Cove that you MUST try!

While compiling this list of restaurants in Anaheim, I noticed a Southern California FAVORITE that is about 4 or 5 miles away from the Disneyland resort area. So,it's not walking distance. I'm assuming you have a car.

In-N-Out Burger (600 South Brookhurst Street, Anaheim, CA (800) 786-1000)

"Simple menu, great food" - ... "Service is fast, and I am embarrassed to say I wolfed down two of these puppies!" - ... "The burgers are wonderful and the fries are the best anywhere" - ... "Friendly and helpful service" - ... "This is by far the best of the fast food burger chains" -

In-N-Out Burger is unique to Southern California. Thank God they're also relatively close to Disneyland. (I mean, your Disneyland vacation would really be complete without In-N-Out!)

It is the ONLY fast food I will eat. Actually, I HATE fast food because I LOVE my health, but I am always up for In-N-Out!

In-N-Out is NOT a corporate chain. It's not even a franchise. It has been family run since 1948. There have been many wanna-be imitators along the way, and In-N-Out has sued everybody who has tried to copy their simple formula for success: Fresh, high-quality food, simple menu, served fast.

What does this mean? Unlike EVERY other fast food place, In-N-Out does not pack mystery "additives," "fillers," and "preservatives" into your hamburger. And they hand-cut their fries, right there on the spot.

My best friend used to work at a french fry factory. You would not believe what a standard fast food restaurant fry goes through between the potato and your mouth. Trust me, it is disgusting and involves numerous chemicals that those of us outside of the food science industry cannot pronounce or identify.

So, if you've never been to an In-N-Out before, do yourself a big favor and go!

PS. There are a few versions of their hamburgers that are not on the menu. My favorite? An "animal style" cheeseburger, which means they add sauteed onions.

Secret burger variations:

  • Double Meat - Two 100% pure beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun.
  • 3 x 3 - Three 100% pure beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, three slices of American cheese, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun.
  • 4 x 4 - Four 100% pure beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, Four slices of American cheese, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun.
  • Grilled Cheese - Two slices of melted American cheese, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, with or without onions on a freshly baked bun.
  • Protein Style - Your favorite burger wrapped in hand-leafed lettuce, instead of a bun.
  • Animal Style - Burger of your choice with hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, a mustard cooked beef patty; add pickle, extra spread, with grilled onions.
  • X by Y - X patties and Y slices of cheese. A change in policy recently has limited the amount of meat and cheese per burger to 4 each. Prior to the change, there was no limit but the maximum number of patties and cheese ever bought was a 100x100.
  • In-N-Out's 100x100 In-N-Out's 100x100

  • Veggie Burger - A sandwich containing only vegetables, without meat or cheese.
  • Sliced Chillies - Mild, pickled chopped peppers are added to the burger.
  • Flying Dutchman - Two meat patties with two slices of American cheese between them. This style comes with no bun, no lettuce, and no tomatoes.
  • Mustard and/or Ketchup instead of spread.
  • Half-and-Half - Your burger is cut in half.

Secret french Fry variations:

  • Fries "Light" - Decreased cooking time for a softer product.
  • Fries "Well" - Increased cooking time for a crispier product.
  • Fries "Extra-Well" - Further increased cooking time for a very crispy product.
  • "Animal Fries" - Melted cheese, spread, and grilled onions.
  • Cheese fries - Fries with cheese

Secret beverage variations:

  • Root beer floats
  • "Lemon-Up" — a mixture of lemonade and 7 Up.
  • Lemonade/Tea mix — known as an "Arnold Palmer", a mixture of iced tea and lemonade.
  • Choco-Vanilla Swirl shake — a mixture of vanilla and chocolate flavors
  • Neapolitan shake — a mixture of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors
  • "Large" shake and "Extra Large" shake. Large is a medium drink cup, Extra Large is a Large Drink Cup.
