Ribs, Corn and Potatoes

This is a must-eat location after the Jurassic Park River Adventure. Servings are dinosaur-sized and the ribs, corn on the cob and roasted garlic herbed potatoes are delicious. Save room for some chocolate cake!

Another great place to eat, drink and chill. As with most of the theme parks, food is secondary to the atmosphere. Still, good value and more than pleasant food.

Dined here with my family for lunch after a trip on the Jurassic Park ride. Great theme running through the restaurant. Caveman food!!! It's fast food with a twist as it's ribs, rotisserie chicken, corn on the cob, BLT wraps etc. Large central dining area has a viewing area by the big drop on the JP ride, and is designed... More

Because of the reviews we tried out the Mythos restaurant in Islands of Adventure but I must say I enjoyed the food better at Thunder Falls Terrace better which is located in the Jurassic Park area. I felt it was a better value too with comfortable seating. We ordered chicken that came with two sides. There was 2 large pieces... More

My friend and I visited Universal twice in the time we were in Florida and we had eaten at this restaurant the last time we were there 2 years ago so of course we made a beeline for it again. The first time I had the chicken and ribs and they were yummy with sides of sweetcorn and potatoes. We... More

me & my 16 yr old daughter stopped here to dry off after going on bilge barge and getting a proper drenching. i had a wrap & fries and she had ribs & fries, and there was just too much food, we'd have been better off sharing one dish. Nicely placed by Jurassic park and an ideal place to people... More

Judging by the size of the portions you get here! The ribs, oh boy the meat literally falls off of the bone. The service is very good, and the value for money is great. Scenes overlooking the Jurassic Park ride is a nice touch!
