I thought it was really good!  Of course I can't go by a Taco Bell without stopping.    As far as suggestions go, you can choose your meat and have your choice of like 20 different toppings.   So it's kind of whatever your taste is.  Oh! and free chips and salsa with every meal.

I just stumbled across this, apologies if everyone else has already seen it. On their website, SDC highlights the featured foods for the given festival. I was hoping they would do something like this. I can't wait to try so many different things.

Thanks, Swoosh, for the update and photos.  I'm really looking forward to trying Percy's in April.

One question...  is the water feature still by the entrance to the restaurant?  I always loved it.

Yes, the pipe with the water coming out is still there.

It is no longer a water pipe; it shall heretofore be referred to as tubo de agua.

I noticed that this morning as well.  Gotta love how Terry Sanders sums it up.  :-)

ate lunch there today and had the ground beef tacos.  The meat and rice were very good!  I was impressed with that.  And really enjoyed the queso that the put on the chips. Good taste and flavor to it. And loved that the chips were fresh and obviously cooked there.  Those were great.  And the variety of toppings was very nice.  I was a little disappointed that they didn't have just plain tomatoes, but only fire roasted or mixed in as pico de gallo.  I think it would be nice if they offered regular fresh ones as well, but not a biggie.

My only real complaint was the corn tortillas for the tacos.  Very very dry.  As in cardboard like.  And no corn flavor.  I understand why they want a thicker, dryer tortilla, so they don't shred and fall apart.  But these were just bad. Not the first taste and texture you want to hit your mouth when taking a bite. Next time I'll probably go with a burrito or the nachos so I don't have to have those again.

Other than that- which was easy to overlook, I really liked the food and the set up.  The price wasn't bad for the amount of food that you got either- a little  high, but that's expected in a park.  Overall a nice addition.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

tried this place sat morning..  WOW>!!   
I had the tacos- you get 2, I chose soft tacos, loaded up with beef, fajita vegggies, onion, queso, lettuce ! yea baby....
Wife had a bowl with beef and chicken loaded up with her goodies... could not finish it.
another person in out party built a burrito-  Huge!
 These servings are big, price with SP discount very reasonable.. 2 dinners with water..17.50, give or take a few cents.. 
For the money I would compare it to anyplace in Branson for the same type of food..
Each meal get a small bowl of chips, with queso or pico..  your choice..
For sure  will be my go to place to eat..
