Best Citywalk Eats

By Kismet Kohn

CityWalk is located on Universal property near Doctor Phillips, and has food for anyone! Ranging from full meals to just a tiny bite at a hole in the wall, you can find something that will make your mouth water.

The Restaurants

CityWalk offers numerous restaurants and every year they’re adding more. There's Bigfire, Antojitos, Bob Marley—A Tribute to Freedom, Cowfish, and Vivo, just to name a few. Bigfire offers traditional American cuisine, such as steak, burgers, and pasta. If you're in the mood for authentic Mexican cuisine, Antojitos serves nachos, tacos, and enchiladas.

During Mardi Gras season, Bob Marley serves a special dish, rum cake, and their usual meat and fish centered menu. Want to try something a little different? Cowfish is a sushi and burger restaurant, which sounds like a unique combination but is actually delicious. Finally, Vivo is a classic Italian restaurant on Citywalk, offering a variety of pasta dishes and pizzas.

The Bars

Want to grab a drink? The NBC Sports Grill and Brew is technically a restaurant, but is a great place to sit down and watch a game or two while having a drink. The restaurant is filled with TVs showing all of the different sports games going on at the moment. There are over 100 brews and the usual sports bar foods to choose from. On the other side of CityWalk, Pat O’Brien’s is a Bayou-themed bar with live music, po’boys, and a diverse cocktail menu. Of course, there is always Margaritaville as well where you can enjoy a slice of key lime pie and a frozen cocktail in paradise.

Craving something sweet? CityWalk has many dessert places to choose from, including Menchie’s, Cold Stone Creamery, and Toothsome Chocolate Emporium. Menchie’s and Cold Stone are both delicious frozen treats and offer a variety of flavors. Toothsome’s is technically a restaurant, but they are known for their over-the-top desserts! Their everyday menu offers sandwiches, burgers, and the usual American food entrees. However, the dessert menu is just as long as the everyday menu, showcasing their milkshakes and sundaes. If you’re a fan of chocolate I highly recommend their Brookies, Cookies and Cream Sundae!

You can find snacks at almost any of the places listed above, but every time I visit Citywalk I have to stop at Bend the Bao. I am a huge fan of bao already, but Bend the Bao does something to make their food extra delicious and leave you craving more. They offer bao for meat, veggie, and fish lovers and all of them taste equally delicious. If you have more of a sweet tooth you can check out the Cinnabon or Voodoo Doughnuts. Voodoo Doughnuts gets a lot of praise because of its unique doughnut options and designs. Each doughnut is different and some even have cereal or candy on top!

Citywalk is a great place to visit if you’re looking to try a bunch of new foods, and be on Universal property without having to pay for a park ticket! No matter where you go you really can’t go wrong, and each stop brings something unique.
