My friend chose Ballast Point Burger but opted for a lettuce wrap / protein style. Keto options are aplenty at Disneyland Resort

I chose Cobb Salad Romaine, Applewood-smoked Bacon, Crumbled Blue Cheese, Eggs, Avocados, Tomatoes, Crispy Onions and Blue Cheese Dressing. It was HUGE! I loved how delicious it was and that I was able to take my leftovers home for dinner.
