Entertainment doesn’t stop right away when you leave Florida’s Universal Orlando Resort. Consider Universal CityWalk as an extension of the park’s animated environment. This vibrant restaurant and nightlife area, a short walk from the entrance and hotels, is where a lot of people in the park end up having a drink or a bite to eat in the evening. Universal CityWalk tends to have plenty to eat from hot dogs to linguine and clams for every pallet or price.

Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar
Forget pizza; daring guests may take this unusual opportunity rather than a burg host. The signature dish of Cowfish is all the attachments you’d expect from a traditional burger, which is special to a sushi roll. Dining comes from a dozen milkshakes that you can use to wash your cheeseburgers or sashimi truffles, but milk and raw fish are not typical combinations. Again, Cowfish is not very common. This restaurant is rooted in irony, as indicated by the name and menu East-Meets-West Fusion.
The unfiltered decor of The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar or its fun virtual aquariums (to help guests stay away while waiting for a sitting) – its truly triple menu is the true star of this very unusual restaurant. Top-notch gourmet burgers, exquisite sushi and an unusual mix of the sort, called burgushi, make sushi from traditional burgers, are essentially three separate, one-off restaurants.
If all that’s still not enough for you, take a gander in a special cowfish picture outside the front door, try one of the utterly delicious hand-spun milkshakes (the Cowfish was the first Toothsome Chocolate Emporium, albeit smaller and not as wild with desserts), or indulge in a selection of premium sake and exotic martinis. It’s hard to go wrong here, either aesthetically or gastronomically.
Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food
Authentic Mexican Food of Antojito is all that the name says: authentic Mexican cuisine. You will not find anything that looks like dinner from Taco Bell here, but instead, you will enter the very south of the bordering kitchen. The Antojitos menu includes a selection of tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, burritos, tortas. A selection of appetizers may also be picked.
It is also fun to have guacamole and chips since the fresh guacamole is made on the table. Nachos and home-made salsa are perfect too. If you buy meals, they come free. The dish is made from scratch and can be mixed with equally authentic Mexican beverages, including tequila, beer, and wine imports, as well as soda, San Pelligrino and hot chocolate.
The restaurant has two floors. The ground floor has a trendy urban look, and the upper floor has a purposeful, comfortable feel. There are outdoor seats, too. Many of the nights a mariachi band plays for dinner, though they occasionally take a break on Mondays and Tuesdays. Performers like Miley Cyrus or Bruno Mars can surprise you with the interpretation of modern songs.
Vivo Italian Kitchen
Many who want to cool down after a busy day in the park will then forget the high-spirited food and prefer something low-handed. Vivo Italian cuisine also provides a more comfortable atmosphere and a refined pallet (such as calamari or lamb ragu).
Celebrate the elegance of authentic Italian food with an elegant luxury experience in this fully-serviced restaurant. Open Expo Kitchen gives you the chance to watch hot pipe pizzas from the oven as the chefs prepare fresh bread, sauce, mozzarella, and pasta. Every meal is fresh, long-lasting and flavored with the finest ingredients.
Without a little vino, what will VIVO be? Food is commonly mixed with wine in Italy. Several different vintages and Italian-inspired drinks and a full bar are available here. Come and taste the relaxed elegance of the Cucina and its outstanding cuisine.
Hard Rock Cafe
Hard Rock Cafe is a landmark and the largest universal Citywalk in the world. The waiting list of 1,000 seats is small, and entertainment is always great because the restaurant is also a quasi-rock museum. There’s a lot of entertainment out there. You can’t find food on your plate with all the songs on the walls (the Elvis outfit in Viva Las Véga). The menu also includes American food, including chicken wings, nachos, steaks. Salads and ten different burgers.
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville
Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffet’s popular Tequila and Cheeseburger joint, is another familiar name for the outpost at Universal CityWalk. You might even think that you’re in the middle of Florida, not the coast because of the tacos and coconut shrimp on the menu. The children are coming to the island atmosphere; the parents are coming to drink the vessels.
This emblematic restaurant gives life to the music and relaxed personality of Jimmy Buffett on the island. A volcano that periodically erupts, sprouting margarites rather than lava, is the focus of the Margaritaville of Jimmy Buffett. There is also live music, an outdoor kitchen named the Indecision Porch and a Jimmy Buffet shop. The Margaritaville menu Jimmy Buffett serves tropical food and the finest paradise cheeseburgers. A selection of tropical drinks, beer, and full drink is offered in Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville menu.
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
There’s a lot of “Harry Potter” and “Jurassic Park” in the park, but there’s a whole “Forrest Gum” restaurant on the Universal CityWalk. Parents can train children to a trivia video game while waiting for their jambalayas, shrimp boys and other cajun dishes. During the classic bus bench scene, Plaster casts Forrest’s sneakers in front of the restaurant.
As its name suggests, Bubba Gump Shrimp is a specialized restaurant that offers a wide variety of shrimp as well as Cajun-centered and southern dishes. Experience film-inspired dishes and share an American aperitif before plunging into Lieutenant Dan’s Drunken Shrimp or Lobster Butter Sauce at Jenny. Do not forget to leave Mama’s Cinnamon Bread Pudding dessert room, or leave the children to make their ice cream pudding.
It’s a culinary experience for people of all ages; you will enjoy true Southern hospitality when you join Bubba Gump. This restaurant is not meant to be missed if you love shrimp. But don’t worry – they’ve got a lot to give to everyone, even if you’re not a major shrimp fan. Bubba Gump serves salads, soup, sandwiches, seafood and fish, among many products, and other shrimp foods. There is also a gluten-free menu available.
Red Oven Pizza Bakery
Red Oven Pizza Bakery’s old-world pasta will please even the finest of palettes. Italian cuisine is prepared and cooked in a 900-degree oven for 90 seconds or less. The children have a continuous chance.
Guests will enjoy an authentic fresh, homemade pizza while waiting at Red Oven Pizza Bakery. The Red Oven Pizza Bakery provides a range of high-quality ingredients and a conventional stone-cooked oven for delicious pizzas. You will dine with a selection of new salads, imported beer, wine, and other beverages.
Hot Dog Hall of Fame
Save your frankfurter craving for the park and treat yourself to the most – the top version of the Hot Dog Hall of Fame, a flashy CityWalk staple that’s just too big and brightly lit to miss. There are wieners from every corner of the U.S. on the menu, so pick them up between Chicago-, Boston-, New York-and Milwaukee-style and load them up at the gourmet mustard bar.
Cause your appetite for classic hot dogs in CityWalk Hot Dog Hall of Fame in some of the country’s most famous ball Parks. You’ll feel as though you’re in a stadium-style ball game with benches, artificial turf, lighting, trophies, and signs.
