After spending several hours at the Islands of Adventure, we finally ventured into the Jurassic Park area. We were hungry by this time so we decided to stop for food. There was a small line up and the service was fast.

There were 4 of us, myself, hubby and our two daughters. We ordered the turkey leg platter which consisted of a smoked turkey leg, corn on the cob and a choice of roasted or fried potatoes. We ordered one of each. We were disappointed with the turkey leg as it tasted over salted. I did manage to remove the skin which helped a bit. The only way to really eat this is to hold the leg and bite pieces off as the plastic knife and fork couldn't cut through the tendons. I did manage to cut the entire meat off by cutting from the small end to the larger end and then removing the tendons before cutting the meat into bite sized pieces.

As I said before, we did find the turkey too salty to totally enjoy but the 2 platters did fill the 4 of us.

My sons and I ate dinner here at about 5:00 the evening we went to IOA.

We ordered and thoroughly enjoyed
Rotisserie Chicken Wrap with Fries: $8.99
Rotisserie Chicken Salad (was huge!) - $8.99
Side Salad (quite small) - $3.49

We also noticed
Rotisserie Chicken w/ Roasted Corn on the Cob - $10.99
Ribs w/ Roasted Corn - $14.99
Hamburger w/ Fries...

Thunder Falls is right beside the flume of the Jurassic River Adventure ride, hence the name. There is well-appointed indoor seating, which was NOT busy this time of day, but we opted for outdoor seating where we were able to watch the flume without getting wet.

Food was very good. I wish they had a greater selection for younger children. Only PBJs & Mac & Cheese - neither of which my 9-year-old prefers. He opted for the side salad and we found him something else elsewhere.

Try another restaurant in this park. Restaurant was poorly staffed and had long wait times. We waited over a half hour to get our food around 3pm because they were understaffed. When we did get our food it not at all appetizing. The burgers were overdone, turkey leg was tough and very saltly, and the fries were also very saltly. Choose somewhere else to eat in the park...this one isn't worth the wait.

We love this place for an evening meal in the Universal IOA theme park. Great chicken and burgers. Their corn on the cob is great. Broasted potatoes very good, also. Wife had 2 bowls of their tortilla chicken soup. Lots of choices for the whole family. They also have kids' meals. Our family of 5 dined here for $38. Very good meal for a theme-park eatery with lots of choices for everyone.

We dined around 6:30PM and it was not very crowded at all.

We sat outside, dining on the veranda and enjoyed watching the river rafts of the Jurassic Park water ride soak their riders in terrifying fashion.

A very good dining spot in IOA.
