When Bongo's opened I went the food was good then but the pricing was too high...loved the dancing in the evening...then the service/food went "south"....but the prices went up...haven't been there for a long time...found El Campo Restaurant...close by....

I’d love for a Padrinos to go in there
Padrinos?! A chain Cuban restaurant replacing a chain Cuban restaurant that is owned by a celebrity...
I don't think it would be any more successful than Bongos was(n't).. It certainly would be a downgrading of the space... You have Spanish Tapas right next door... Needs to be something more unique
Disney Springs currently has:
Mexican
Spanish
Japanese
Italian
Irish
Steakhouse
Food Truck (Planet Hollywood)
Food Trucks literally
Southern Cuisine
Seafood(several)_
Chicken Sandwiches
Hot Dogs and Sausages
Everything Restaurants (Rainforest Cafe, T Rex)
BBQ
Pizza
Burgers
Ice Cream
Bakery
Only thing I see missing from the list really is something Southeast Asian...like Thai
or a Churrascaria...which I assume will be coming to EPCOT with the Brazil pavilion (if built)...

All I know is I fondly remember the Guiness record batch of Paella they made for the West Side grand opening in the courtyard and the mutiple to-go clamshells full of food they sent us home with.

Sometimes a 'checklist' is superfluous when it comes to brick and mortar businesses. Sort of like multiple shoe stores or children's clothing stores. Foot traffic spreads customers out to all of the quality locations. You can't look at a steak house (or any other foodie attraction) and say 'one and done'.

Although we never dined in Bongos, we always did the take out window. We may be in the minority, but we loved the take out there.

I’ve only visited (and eaten at) the new Disney Springs a couple times, but all of the newer restaurants just sort of blur together in my mind. They just don’t seem particularly distinct, especially not for a themed vacation destination like WDW.
