Antojitos Cocina Mexicana

With over 150 different tequilas and a large menu inspired largely by Mexican cuisine, Anojitos Cocina Mexicana is a favorite spot to grab a drink or a bit to eat.

Antojitos is also decked it with great theming which really elevates the dining experience!

Great Mexican food isn't hard to find in Los Angeles, so Antojitos has a lot of competition, but at Universal CityWalk Hollywood it's one of the only options for Mexican flavors and a very solid choice.


Mole Enchiladas

Braised chicken, rich salsa molé, corn tortillas, toasted sesame seeds, Mexican red rice, refried beans, cilantro

Guacamole & Chips

Made tableside during peak dining hours with avocado, diced red onion, tomatoes, jalapeño, fresh lime juice, cilantro, housemade tortilla chips

Poke Bar

A Hawaiian staple, a simple explanation of Poke is a bowl consisting of raw fish, veggies, fruits, and rice.

Poke Bar at Universal CityWalk Hollywood has delicious options including salmon, albacore, and a variety of shellfish. Fruit and vegetable options include seaweed, onion, and pineapple.

If you're craving seafood or just a fresh and light dish, Poke Bar is a great choice for lunch or dinner.


Spicy Tuna Bowl

Sweet onion, pineapple, edamame, and a ponzu drizzle with spicy tuna is a simple, but crowd-favorite option.

The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen

One of the newest additions to Universal CityWalk Hollywood is Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Kitchen. Toothsome has quickly become one of our all-time favorites to dine at after a day at Universal. 

While milkshakes and desserts are obviously the main attraction here, the lunch and dinner menu is quite tasty as well. 

From a Rib Eye Steak Sandwich to juicy burgers and buffalo chicken wings, there are tons of tasty options to choose from at Toothsome... and yes, even some healthy ones!

Toothsome is one of the most popular restaurants at Universal CityWalk, so you'll want to make reservations in advance. We don't think you'll regret it either, but make sure you're in the mood for dessert as the indulgent milkshakes are the main attraction here. 


Rib Eye Steak Sandwich

Sautéed onions, mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, arugula, herb shallot aioli, horseradish cheese, toasted onion brioche

    Brisket Burger

    Housemade patty, chocolate stout glazed brisket, oil-dressed arugula, tomatoes, fried mushrooms, white cheddar horseradish, bacon & onion jam on a sesame bun

    Red Velvet Milkshake

    Vanilla ice cream, Red Velvet cupcake, raspberry sauce, rainbow sprinkles, whipped topping, maraschino cherry

    That's Mint

    Minty chocolate chip ice cream, Andes mints, mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich

    Assortment of Toothsome Milkshakes

    NBC Sports Grill & Brew

    Burgers, wings, giant pretzels and over forty different beers to choose from NBC Sports Grill & Brew is one of our favorite restaurants at CityWalk to drop into after a long day at the park.

    Many people also love just stopping into NBC Sports for a big sporting event or to sample their huge variety of brews. 

    TIP: The burgers here are a ca n't-miss but their wings, loaded nachos, and Artisian pretzel are stellar appetizers we love to order.


    Gruyere Burger 

    A juicy burger topped with cherry caramelized onions, toasted Gruyère, crispy onions, arugula, toasted brioche

      Artisan Pretzel

      An oversized pretzel with Bertman's mustard and housemade beer-cheddar queso.

        VIVO Italian Kitchen

        It was a close call between VIVO Italian Kitchen and NBC Sports Grill & Brew, but VIVO is our top restaurant at Universal CityWalk Hollywood.

        The selection of antipasti, pizza, desserts, and pasta are phenomenal and there really are no bad choices at VIVO. 

        The pasta and piatto principales (main course) are standout choices here with the shrimp fra diavolo and tagliata being the strongest items to pick from -- the shrimp fra diavolo is a big favorite and we can't recommend it enough. 

        The cauliflower fritti is also a can't-miss appetizer that pairs nicely with the tagliata. 



        Grilled strip loin with arugula, rosemary garlic oil, and a side of crispy potatoes

          Shrimp Fra Diavolo

          Shrimp, squid ink spaghetti with marinara and Calabrian chili peppers
