Where to eat with kids at Universal


Earning My Ears

Where's a good place to eat while at Universal. We are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel and have 3 kids that don't like fancy food nor do I want to spend a fortune to eat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Confiscos has a great character lunch - reasonably priced. I think they have a kid's menu. It is in IOA. If you are a member of AAA, remember to take your membership card - you will be able to get 10% off of your food purchases. That discount really adds up over several days.
If your kids aren't hearty eaters, try Thunder Falls Terrace or Enchanted Oak Tavern for the chicken platter. There seems to be enough food for two small eaters!

Confico's menu is actually fairly sophisticated, although they do have macaroni and cheese.

Younger kids should really enjoy Circus McGurkus (indoors) and Greens Eggs and Ham (outdoors), both in Seuss Landing. Burger Digs in Jurassic park is another good choice. (Be sure to sit on the balcony if the weather's nice.)

In USF, I'd recommend Monster cafe for the fun decor. Mel's has decent burgers but it's getting to the $10 mark for a full meal. Other simple food is at International Food Bazaar (World Expo) and Louie's (New York).

A lot of the restaurants in CityWalk have started offering a kids menu of simple meals for around $5 or $6.

The other solution is to let 'em eat junk and you can keep each "meal" to under $5 at the outdoor stands. 1 :D ô
