One of the better deals for the Universal Dining Plan

The Chicken & Ribs Meal was a part of the Dining Plan. Includes a drink(which the cashier had to confirm with her supervisor for some reason) as well. This location is tucked away in a corner, so a bit less crazy than Burger Digs. Still takes a while for the line to move, though. I would recommend... read more

We chose this place to eat at Adventure Islands. They had the best ribs I have ever tasted. I chose this place manly to get the Jurassic Park experience, but the whole family loved the food, and it was reasonable as well.

Atmosphere was great. Food was good and they provided a lot of it. There was a wait to get through the line but it wasn't as long for us as some of the other reviewers noted. The staff there was friendly & helpful. The BBQ ribs were great for a quick service meal at the end of the day. The... More

The longest queue of the day for cold overcooked food - didnt open all counters even with large queues - thankfully the only negative of a great park - avoid

We waited in line for an hour for lunch. Totally insane, but by the time we realized how slowly things were moving, we felt committed. Was it worth the wait? Of course not! However, for park food, it is likely one of the best options available. The corn on the cob was tasty and the chicken was juicy. The turkey... More

Rotisserie chicken salad was impressive. Dining was comfortable. Portions were generous. However, food was generally just acceptable but probably exceeds other theme park food.

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...

Islands of Adventure, where this dining venue is located, can be very crowded, and it can get very hot in the spring & summer. So, a place like Thunder Falls, with its counter-service offerings of ribs, rotisserie chicken, burgers, liquid refreshment, etc. becomes more than inviting - it becomes a veritable oasis. I ordered a combo platter of ribs and... More

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.
