Agreed, Bula Bar cheeseburgers are great, as is everything else. But that one at Finnegans was might tasty too. Looking forward to staying at RPR again when Gringott's opens!!

recommended places to eat at Universal

Leaving at the end of this month and spending 3 days at Universal/IOA to begin our vacation. We have never been to Universal before and I am now trying to get the details in order. I was wondering what you all recommend for restaurants to eat at, both sit in an counter service.

I am going to do Mythos on our last day for my daughter's birthday. She is a huge Percy Jackson fan and I think she will love the theme there.

Any other places you recommend for dinners? Any special lunches or breakfasts that you consider a "must do"? or anything you have had a particular bad experience with?
Should we go to Citywalk to eat? Or stay in the resort/park area?
And last, should I make reservations for anything? I think I will for Mythos. We are going to do a late lunch I think.
If it helps, we are a family of 4 with 2 girls ages 12 and 14.
thanks in advance. Can't believe less than a a month away!

Mythos was our favorite meal last time we visited IoA. Three Broomsticks was also quite good.

Good steak restaurants??

Who has the best steak at Universal parks or resorts? We were thinking of eating at the Steak place in the Latin Quarter but I read some bad reviews and now I am not sure it would be worth the price. Has anyone been here and how is it? My opinion it's hard to beat a good steak cooked on the grill at home.

There is no menu for club level. The offerings change daily. You can take a look at some of them here... http://www.disboards.com/showthread....+photos&page=2

I had the beef medallions at Mytho's the other night. They were great. Three very small beef filets served with mashed potatoes and 2 asparagus spears. I am sure there are other places but that was my experience.

At HRH, there's The Palm restaurant that's supposably famous for their steaks. But they are expensive and I wasn't impressed when I dined there several years ago.

Both Emeril restaurants (Emeril's Orlando in Citywalk, and Emeril's Tchoup Chop in RPR) have good but expensive steaks. Tchoup Chop was a little better on prices.

Hi All!

So a lot of good recommendations on here- but lots of posts to go through! My hubby and I are staying at the Royal Pacific for the first time during the week of the 4th to celebrate his bday. I was looking to have one really nice dinner at the parks, at one of the other on-site hotels or within walking distance. We are both foodies so it needs to be something special and delicious! Any recommendations?? We love all types of cuisines so there is no limit!
