I was really impressed with Universal Studios. Every restaurant I ate at took precautions to prevent cross contamination. I’m a super sensitive celiac and never had a reaction. I ate at Mythos, Confisco Grille, Hard Rock and Margaritaville. Great experience.

I ate at Fast Food Boulevard in the Simpson area. It took some time to track down someone who could confirm for me what was gluten free. They told me they have gluten free buns for the burgers and the chicken tenders, tator tots, and milkshakes are gluten free. I got the caprese salad with a side of tator tots.

Ate at Finnegans. Great burger with an Udis bun! Chef came and spoke with me asking if I had any questions or concerns. Waitress pointed out everything on menu she knew was not safe. I’m celiac but not super sensitive

Mel's drive in is my go-to. I can always count on staff there to make sure food is safe, haven't had much luck at other restaurants in this park.

We ate at Three Broomsticks. The chef came out to speak to us when we ordered. Ordered the turkey Leg and subbed roasted potatoes for the potato wedges, also ordered the chicken platter. Both were very good!

We also went to Mythos. The menu is clearly labeled with what can be made GF. i had to ask the waitress to check to be sure she brought us the GF bread because it was so good! My daughter got the Mythos Burger and I got the fish tacos. Both were very good, but I didn't care for the potato salad that came with the tacos. Tested the burger, bun, and fries with my Nima sensor, all were 0 gluten found.

Moe's Lisa's tea house--had a tuna Mediterranean salad. Good amount of food. Salad and dressing gf. Ate this three times while at universal and did not get sick

Burger joint within the Jurassic Park area where they have the eggs and bones had gluten free chocolate shakes that were super yummy.

Harry Potter areas--butter beer regular and frozen is gf. Very yummy and sweet. Three broomsticks got a plain baked potatoe with butter. Evidently they can sometimes do gd fish and chips but they were out of batter so I was a bit disappointed.

I was avoiding meat aside from fish for lent and found it difficult to find vegetarian and gluten free at the park.

I ate at the Thunder Falls (Jurasic park area at the Islands of Adventure). I had a wonderful experience!!! That place exceeded my expectations!!!!! They have separate gluten free menu. Soon as i told the person that was preparing my meal about the allergy, he immediately washed his hands, took new pair of gloves and started preparing my meal! He went above and beyond and it was a pure pleasure watching how someone is so knowledgeable and careful with your meal! I ate cheeseburger and fries on a gf bun! Food was delicious and service was outstanding!! I highly recommend it!!! :)

First breakfast at Three Broomsticks was horrible. My husband and I are both GF (I have CD) and they had us read through the book with their GF options and ordered accordingly. They stuck tomatoes with breadcrumbs on our plates and I spent the rest of the day sick and had horrible pain rest of trip. They confirmed that the next day at Leaky Cauldron. The chef there came out and guided us through options and even customized orders. Only reason I upped the stars to 2

I did not have the same experience as the previous review. I spotted at guest services and was told to check with the restaurants but that I probably could only eat at the full service restaurants. We tried monsters Cafe and they had no idea so we went to Finnegans. I ordered a salad from the gf menu and when I asked the server which dressings were safe she said all of them (not listed on menu). When I asked her if she was sure she said 99% so I explained she needed to be 100% because I world get very sick. She checked and only 3 dressings are gluten free and the one I would have chosen wasn't one of them so if I hadn't been pushy about it I'd have spent the test of the day sick.

We tired to have dinner at islands of adventure at 4pm and all of the restaurants were closed! so we waited until we got to citiwalk. We tried Vivo in citiwalk and the hostess said well I could have the penne pasta not sure which sauce and maybe some entrée but they didn't have a gf menu. Finally at bubba gump shrimp they had a gf menu.

Don't try to contact Universal for help on Facebook or Twitter they only respond to the comments praising then. It was so frustrating and if you are traveling with a child with celiac and diabetes you need to really do your planning and calling ahead.

Going to universal was very pleasant. Every restaurant that we went to had a gluten free menu and some had separate kitchens. It was a great experience
