I can't afford the regular restaurant, but as Denise said, my wife and I both love the express location. We eat there everytime we make it to downtown disney.
I can't afford to go to the Express too much, I end up getting pizza at Hess.
But when I did the free dine last year, I had a ton of counter service credits left. (some table service too). I took food to go, including a few meals from WP Express. I love their pizza - and really, everything else. It's high-quality fast food, and that would be the same as Earl and DisneyQuest Express.
That said, it looks like the CF is pulling out of DQ by June, and maybe Disney taking the food service over. NOT happy about that, the quality can only go down.
I have eaten at WGPs a few times and I personally like it. Now I haven't eaten on the 2nd floor because that is way too pricey, but the Market Place express, the Cafe the Restaurant and then the 2nd floor all have different offerings.

I think it is one of the better offerings on property when looking at price/quantity/quality as a whole.
The atmosphere of the express could use a little boost (it allways seems run down to me) but the food is great. I also continue to get DDP discounts there, despite all the information to the opposite I keep getting.

I've eaten at all 4 locations. The Market PLace WP Express is closed for expansion, I prefer this location over The Westside WP Express. The Cafe is good, the Server quality varies greatly though, from excellent to poor. The Dining room was great but it has been several years since I've been there last.
