    Probably the least touristy place to eat at city walk. Nachos with chicken and guacamole and a wheat beer are great.

    The food, as always, tastes amazing. Note that they cannot refill the growlers at this location due to the rules for alcohol at City Walk.

    The Nacho Stack is really good, it's a starter snack but it serves two people that one will think twice about ordering a main course after eating this.

    I had the salad with tuna sashimi (I forgot the salad name): amazing! Although it's inside Universal's citywalk, the price was decent (a lot cheaper than I would expect)

    The corkage fee is so reasonable you can bring your own great wine to complement the wonderful food if you aren't a beer aficionado.

    Cray Crayson · October 13, 2012
  • Candice W.

    When they ask you if you want soup or salad, say neither. They'll charge you extra for it!!! :(

    Ask to sit in Chris' section! Nicest waiter--and he has really good suggestions if you can't decide what to have.
