How much does food cost?

Universal Orlando: How much does food cost at Universal Studios?

Hi all! Looking for some guidance. My son and I are going to U.S. and I.O.A. for 3 1/2 days. I plan to do U.S. for 1 1/2 days and I.O.A. the other 2. He is 10 and I was wondering how much it costs for counter service for lunch and dinner. I just want to know how much cash to bring on the trip. We also have a breakfast scheduled at 3 Broomsticks and a lunch scheduled at Mythos since everyone here seemed to rave about it. So can you tell me about what the 2 sit downs would run as well? Even if it's just as close an estimate as you can give, I'd be so grateful!

If you just want to eat around either park during the day you can get hot dogs/sandwiches with fries/chips and drinks for two people for about $20-$25 dollars. We had an included breakfast at the Three Broomsticks for 4 people and when they rang up the bill it came to about $55.

Yeah, for counter service, I would say $10 per person, Table Service about $20. These are approximations and may be more expensive or cheaper!

The Beer is $6.00...

Three Broomsticks is actually counter service, but it's priced a little higher than the rest of them because of the different foods (and drinks!) you can get there.
