Located under a circus tent, this large cafeteria-style restaurant serves fried chicken, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, and individual-sized pizzas, for $7-9.
We went to the breakfast with the Grinch. The character interaction was amazing... we have never had so much one on one time at a character meal! We were visited by The Grinch, The Cat in the Hat and 2 of the Who's. Everyone was perfectly in character. The food was plentiful, but pretty generic. The service was really good. People coming by asking to refill drinks, get you coffee or clear your plate. It was a bit expensive, but definitely worth it for the picture ops! - Michelle Morgan
I usually eat here first because of the atmosphere. The decoration is really cool and there is even a ride that goes right through it. I ordered a cheese burger once here and it was just awful, but I always buy a meal deal pass so i was able to hop back in line. I got the fried chicken with sides. It was pretty good. - Michelle Kowalski
Food is good. No complaints. Good variety. Fun atmosphere. All in all 8/10. Be prepared to spend $8-$10 each after beverage. - Bob Liebe
Good food, but eat here because of the extremely impressive atmosphere! - Benjamin Odom
I usually hate getting pre-made salads because there never seems to be enough dressing. Circus McGurkus does it different! I found the dressing to be plentiful but not to the point where it is drenched on my Chicken Caesar Salad. I had some other offerings from other people in my party, and that food was tasty as well. Great Atmosphere! 9/10 - Greg S.
