Does your mom love meat and fresh made-from-scratch sides with a twist? American Q, located inside the fabulous B Resort and Spa at Lake Buena Vista is an excellent choice! Their vintage Flatbed Buffet is tough to beat partnered with the friendly, knowledgable Cowboy Carvers who deliver table side meats so tender, they will fall right off the knife. The baked potato bar is our favorite alongside Q specialities such as; an omelet station, seafood pot station, take home mason jars, hot and cold sides and more. You can also enter to win prizes including: a B Resort Hotel Staycation, an afternoon at the B Resort Spa and Dinner for 4 at American Q!
