8. Richter’s Burger Co.

Universal Studios Florida Quick Service Restaurant Ranking 2023 26

Much like an earthquake, this restaurant is a natural disaster. It’s appropriately fitting that it’s close to one of the worst rides in the park, too. If you have family, spare them and take them anywhere else on property besides Richter’s Burger Co. The burgers and fries leave a lot to be desired here.

7. KidZone Pizza Company

KidZone might be gone, but the KidZone Pizza Company lives on. This location isn’t open too often, so you probably won’t end up here unless you visit during an extremely busy time. The pizza here is mediocre and forgettable, so if you do see this open during the day, we suggest you keep walking by.

6. Louie’s Italian Restaurant

Louie’s Italian Restaurant offers quick service pizza and pasta options and even has a gelato window. The pizza here is actually pretty good, the slices are huge, and we absolutely love the gelato options.

5. Mel’s Drive-In

There’s no denying that Mel’s Drive-In is an icon at Universal Studios Florida. The beautiful building, retro theme, and neon lights make the perfect backdrop for your park photos. During Halloween Horror Nights, Mel’s Drive-In even turns into Mel’s Die-In. The food, however, might make you also want to die-in. The meals have been hit or miss in our experience, but when it’s good, it’s good.

Fast Food Boulevard in Springfield offers tons of seating and the widest variety of food. This is almost like a food court, with several different places to order from. There’s a little something for everyone, from healthy options to burgers. There’s also chicken, pizza, and fish. You can even get a Duff Beer or a Flaming Moe.

3. Leaky Cauldron

The Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley is a fantastic spot to grab a meal, even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan. The restaurant is highly-themed and the ideal dining location for a witch or wizard. This is one of the few locations that opens early, and you can even get Butterbeer with your breakfast. There are traditional English and American breakfast options on the menu for the morning. After breakfast, you’ll find hearty meals like Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash, and Cottage Pie.
