I generally find that the food prices are high for bad food at these theme parks and I was pleasantly surprised by this one. A "kids meal" was enough for THIS grown-up: a leg-and-thigh and nicely done side (I had the potatoes). My wife got the ribs, which was a meal enough for 2. The dining is cafeteria-style and the...

This is a decent location. Food is pretty tasty. The normal for theme parks being over priced for a small portion. You only get three ribs with their dinner. You do get a free piece of cake if it is your birthday!

Had a particularly nice cheese and bacon burger with fries. Hubby had chicken and ribs. Both meals were well cooked and a nice change from the typical quick service food. Plenty seating available. Would recommend.

We visited on Thursday June 18th. There were around 10 people in front of us waiting to be served. This line took 40 minutes to be served. Managers kept walking out from the preparation area, looking at the lines, then walking back into the kitchen without doing anything about the (lack of) speed from the servers. When we finally got...

Thunder Falls is near the Jurrasic Park ride. We had the chicken and ribs plate. It was good good however the small line took forever to get through.

I was visiting with four generations in tow, the youngest being five years old. As stated before they don`t skimp on the portion size of meat. They serve hamburgers, chicken and ribs, and they are all taste alright. But the portion of vegetables are a little small, maybe except for the corn on the cob and french fries. They`re not... More

One of the best onsite places to eat. Offered larger than normal portions and the food was very good. Grab a seat by the window and you can watch park goers getting soaked on some of the water rides :)

My daughter and I recently had lunch at the Thunder Falls on our first day at Universal. We ended up both getting the $19.99 deal, which included an entree and drink, and then an additional snack and drink to be used later. Let's face it, we knew were eating inside Universal so our expectations weren't that high. But the restaurant... More
