June 2012 – present
Cars Land – Walk down the main pathway, toward Radiator Springs Racers, and you’ll see Fillmore’s Taste-In on your right, across from Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree. If you cut through to Cars Land from Pacific Wharf or A Bug’s Land, head down the main path away from Radiator Springs, and you’ll find the Taste-In on your left, just beyond Flo’s V8 Café.

Fillmore’s Taste-In is a quiet fruit and drink stand located at the front of Cars Land. It’s bright 70s theme and sweet smells draw in visitors from all over, and the peace and quiet inside its fenced yard offer guests a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Radiator Springs.
MY RATING – ★★★☆☆
If you want a healthy snack option as you race around Cars Land, Fillmore’s Taste-In is the perfect stop. This quick service restaurant has a great selection of fruits, veggie cups, juice, and lemonade, and its location toward the end of Cars Land makes it a great stop for any guest exploring the Cars Land/A Bug’s Land/Pacific Wharf side of California Adventure. I give this spot three stars only because there’s virtually no seating, so if you want to enjoy this area you have to stand around. But as a quick-service stand, Fillmore’s does its job perfectly; it’s the perfect spot for a healthy pick-me-up in between churros and Mickey pretzels.
- Veggie cup with ranch
The Taste-In takes its name from Fillmore, the VW van voiced by George Carlin in Cars.
Make sure to check out the Taste-In’s dome after dark; it lights up in psychedelic shades of pink, purple, and blue.
