Admit it, we’ve all drooled at the television watching The Simpsons, eager to eat one of those famous doughnuts Homer loves so much or the Krusty Burgers Bart raves about! So when we first visited Universal Studios after the opening of the Springfield attraction, we seized every opportunity to eat our way into the Simpsons’ world...
1. Lard Lad’s Donuts
It is absolutely vital to stop by Lard Lad’s and pick up one of the renowned giant doughnuts ($4.99), perfect for sharing between two (unless you’re prepared to challenge yourself to battle your way through your own one)! Smaller sized doughnuts and other desserts are available but c’mon…what would Homer say?

2. Luigi’s Pizza
Next stop, Luigi’s Pizza. With the finest doughs and toppings, Springfield’s very own Italian offers you a pizza to remember. Perfect for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike, this restaurant is a must with low prices from $7.49 - $7.99 per pizza. We love grabbing a slice and teaming it up with a beer from Mo’s….heaven!
3. Krusty Burger
Bart’s favourite, the iconic Krusty Burger, is a MUST at least once on your food-filled trip to Orlando. If it is good enough for the Simpson family and Chief Wiggan, it is good enough for you! Take a bite from the legendary burger and never look back, except at the hole in your wallet with prices a little steeper than at Luigis! Worth every bite though.
4. Cletus’ Chicken Shack
Chicken and waffles has just become the newest trend in London, but in Springfield, they’ve been doing this stuff for years! Enjoy a piece of crispy chicken breast packed in between two potato waffles, smothered in maple syrup mayo and served with a portion of tater tots in Cletus’ famous Chicken Shack. Prices range from $8.29 - $11.99.

5. Moe’s Tavern/Flaming Moe’s
Finally, wash down your food with a Buzz Cola for the kids or a Duff Beer for the big kids from Moe’s Tavern. Homer makes them look too good, and Universal Studios is your chance to feel the same as Barney does as he demolishes every single drop in his tankard… at the cost of $3.99 - $8.99 per drink. Gulp! Maybe do this AFTER you've finished on all the rides though!
