We are getting a condo with a full kitchen but this is vacation. I want as little cooking and cleaning as possible.

ps..I am pretty sure one of those BBQ places is near a vegetarian restaurant. We have older teens making it possible for them to eat one place and the adults to eat at another.
Check out the menus for the places I mentioned...I'm sure you can find something to suit everyone.

There's a Kobe right across from Universal...went there once...never again. Food was OK but I thought it was a little pricey for my tastes.

We usually go to the Kobe in Lake Buena Vista. It`s much bigger that the one nearer Universal and I think better service and food.

Food has always been fantastic at that one. We were around $130 for 3 of us last time, but that was for cocktails for 2 as well as we took a car from the hotel to save one of us driving.

May give the I drive one a try this year.

OK, I don't really have time to read through all 46 pages, so I'm going to try the shortcut method. Please don't flame me!

We'll be 2 or 3 adults, staying at RPH, either the last weekend in September or the first weekend in October, for 2 nights. We're "foodie" types (doing Victoria & Albert, for example). We know that we want to have at least one breakfast at the Three Broomsticks. One of us doesn't eat seafood. Other than that:

1) Where in the parks do we want for lunch?
2) Where outside of the parks do we want to try for dinner?

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

if you plan on either of those weekends, book soon.
the hotels fill up quickly for hhn, which will be held on both the weekends you listed.
once the tickets go on sale in the summer, many will book then for the onsite hotels.


Tchoup Chop https://www.universalorlando.com/Hot...houp-Chop.aspx is really good.
check the menu to see if it pleases you.

emerils is in city walk but i prefer emerils tchoup chop at rph better.

you can take the boat taxi to rph from city walk.

if you want to stay in the parks, many suggest Mythos.
i've been there many times and the menu changes periodically.
during sometime periods, they close around 4:00.

in city walk, i hit Latin Quarters.
go to www.citywalk.com to check out the menus of that place and the others.

for casual food, i hit finnegans.
good basic variety but nothing exquisite.

Have to second Finnegans!!! Both times I have eaten there it has been great, prices are pretty reasonable too !!
As for Kobe 's we were 5 and our bill was about $120 we did not have dessert or alcohol though . The place was large and it was not the one near Universal !! We all LOVED it was the favorite eatery for all of us the trip !!

Do any of them include bacon?? DH had a bacon cheeseburger, and mother of all that is good......I don't know WHAT they did to that bacon but it's probably illegal in 49 states. THE best bacon I've ever put in my mouth. Wow.

If you're looking for bacon cheeseburgers, I think your best bet would be at Citywalk: Hard Rock Cafe, Margaritaville, or Nascar Cafe.
