City Walk for lunch from Universal Studios?

Hi
I've never been to Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure, but am planning to break out of the Disney bubble for a day on my next trip. How big of a time drain would it be to leave Universal Studios for lunch at NBA City (my oldest kid is NBA-obsessed)?

I wouldn't leave the Magic Kingdom to take a boat or a bus to a restaurant in a nearby resort, even though I know there are some better options outside the park. But at least online, it looks like it might be a much more manageable thing at US, like the restaurants are almost right outside the park's front gate. True?

thanks

The restaurant is right out front of IOA. It shouldn't be a big deal at all. You can make reservations at www.opentable.com if you want to guarantee a time.

it would not be at all inconvenient. One of the wonderful things about Universal is the close proximity of everything.
It is a very short walk from US to NBA City.
