HaHa! San Francisco Pastry Co. (duh! right there on the window). Located at Universal Studios in the San Francisco/Amity area. It's across from Disaster. There are no tables inside and a small seating area outside so many customers will have to take their snacks to one of the scenic spots along the nearby waterfront. How's that for someone who's never been to Universal?

Well to say I've never been to Universal is not exactly the truth. My husband and I actually went in Sept of 90. We arrived at 3:00 pm (my dd gasped when I told her we arrived that late.......what no months of planning?) They had just opened and gave us complimentary tickets to return. Well we never have until now.........only 19 more days to go. By the way, I still have those unused complimentary tickets in my scrapbook.

Oh and yes I cheated by looking in my Ultimate Guide to Universal Orlando 2009!

Louie's does have great pizza, but you can't get fried chicken at Thunder Falls.

The mac and cheese itself isn't smoked, it's made with smoked cheddar.

I dont eat mac & cheese so I was going out on A limb on that.
But as far as Thunder Falls,you're right not fried but the best Rottis chicken and rib combo to have at any park!!

We walked out of Thunder Falls when we saw the prices and ate at Mythos instead. Our meal at Mythos was cheaper than what Thunder Falls would have cost us (with our AP discount).

If we have more time next trip, we'll give it a try. It's been a few years since we have eaten there. Thanks for the recommendation.

I enjoyed reading this thread! I write a food blog, so I always take pictures of my food, so I might as well post a few of my Universal food pictures here!

Garden Vegetable Pizza from Louie's Italian Restaurant



Pizza and Szechuan Orange Chicken from the International Food & Film Festival Restaurant.


Andoullie Sausage Sandwich from a cart during Mardi Gras:


I have more that I'll post once I find them!

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm....new pics!! I love me some food porn. Just ask Mac! BTW, Mac.....I was trying to be polite to the Cubs fan. She must really hate the Cards because she didn't even respond.

Back to the pics.....I gotta try me some Louie's next time I'm there. That looks pretty darn delicous. I've heard others praise it but now I have a visual.

I always preferred the Enchanted Oak Tree to Thunder Falls. No more of that though.

I also did Mythos once and wasn't impressed. I wouldn't call a single leaf of romaine lettuce on a plate with dressing on it a salad. Especially for their prices!

I miss Enchanted Oak too! That place was great.

Did you see my Mythos pics? The salads may have improved since that one you had.

With our 20% AP discount, it actually made our check cheaper than I expected!
