Was really looking forward to the ribs at this restaurant in the Islands of Adventure park but sadly, they were just fast food. The corn on the cob was so dry, I didn't even take a piece.

This is my go to restaurant when in the theme park. They have the BEST rotisserie BBQ chicken I've ever tasted. It's moist, and juicy. Get the meal deal dining card and you'll be shocked at the portion size. Again probably my favorite "quick service" dining option.

An urge for ribs brought us to this restaurant. Unfortunately it was 5pm and the food that was left had been lying out for quite awhile. The ribs had dried out and the fries were cold and shrivelled up. The chicken tortilla wrap was hard, due to it being left on the counter and not being made fresh to order... More

We return year after year. The chicken and ribs are so good. The corn, beans and rice are also excellent. The place is a nice break from the theme park madness. It is our favorite in Islands of Adventure.

Very good food for theme park fayre. Nice surroundings, have eaten here every trip. The only negative is getting stuck behind someone on the dining plan, took forever to put them through the till. I ate half my lunch in the queue.

The food selection is pretty good. The portions are big, my wife and I shared the chicken salad wrap and there was more than enough for both of us. The roasted chicken is a good alternative to burgers and chicken fingers.

This is our favourite place to eat at Universal Islands of Adventure. There is a good range of food - I highly recommend the chicken wrap or ribs and chicken that are really tasty. The best thing about dining here, is the seating options outside. You can enjoy an outdoor view of the Jurassic Park River Adventure ride - nothing... More

Another place we have to eat here every year we visit. Chicken wrap, ribs and chicken are what we have between three of us and it is more than enough. Portions are large. Nice clean cool place to have lunch in the middle of a hot day, staff are nice too.

Great food, chicken had lots of flavour and corn on the cob was fantastic. Highly recommended. Sat outside to take in the views of the park.
