Theme Park Lovers Logo
LEGOLAND California has some fantastic food options, from the park entrance to the lands in the back. Although not as instagram-worthy as some other theme park food, the quality at this theme park is great, with just a few exceptions. The variety of food should also be commended, from smoked bbq to classic burgers to chicken wings, tofu curry, and more! Most restaurants also include well-made kids meal options with healthy drinks and sides in an adorable bag that can be saved and reused.

One of the best things we've noticed about the food at LEGOLAND California is the price. The price is exceptionally reasonable for the quality and quantity you get at this park. The buffets (even the ones at the nearby hotels) are fantastic and allow you to eat to your heart's content without breaking the bank. 

Top 3 Places to Eat in LEGOLAND California

No 1 Icon
Fun Town's Urban Kitchen
Fun Town's Urban Kitchen has it all: variety, healthy options, freshly made food, snacks, and a large seating area. The only downside to this establishment is that it isn't open every day. It seems to only be open on busier days, including most weekends. Still, you can't really beat freshly cooked chicken curry or their steak sandwich.

Knight's Smokehouse BBQ
If you're starving, Knight's Smokehouse BBQ is the best option for a delicious, filling meal (unless you're craving pizza or pasta). This restaurant also has pretty quick service, since the food is served cafeteria style, where you pick up plates of what you want and have a server help you with your chosen entree. Don't miss out on the dessert options here. You'll regret it!

Burger Kitchen
If you just want something quick and simple or prefer to eat in a more lowkey restaurant, Burger Kitchen has you covered. It has the classic burgers and fries, but also offers snacks, pastries, salads, and, most importantly, lots of shaded seating. The view of Miniland USA from the shaded seating just beside the restaurant can't be beat!

Pizza & Pasta Buffet
Pizza, Pasta
Price: $15 - $25
If you love pizza and don't like to be limited to a certain topping or amount of pizza, the Pizza & Pasta Buffet is the way to go! The pizza is pretty solid. The pasta is a build-your-own style buffet, which is fine. What's nice is that you can eat as much as you want in an A/C room with a cover. It's also fairly decently priced for a buffet!

Pizza Mania
Pizza
Price: $5 - $15
For the pizza lovers is this perfect eatery! Portions are personal pizza size unless you select a family meal. We find these portions to be perfect for adults or very hungry kids. If you're not that hungry, the kids meal portions are still pretty filling. They also serve snacks and cold drinks for a full meal experience.

Cloud Cuckoo Crepes
Crepes
Price: $5 - $15
Cloud Cuckoo Crepes is a food cart in the middle of The LEGO Movie World that serves up a few crepe options, as well as some other snacks. It is not open every day, and even on days it is open, it often opens later in the day. We do recommend stopping by if you have the opportunity, as the crepes are tasty, despite being so elusive.

Everything is Ramen
Ramen
Price: $15 - $25
Everything actually isn't ramen, but you can choose from ramen, rice bowls or salads! The food is good, not great, but the presentation is done well. This restaurant does get busy, so we recommend grabbing a table as soon as you see one available. Food is delivered to your table, which is a nice touch!

Ninja Kitchen
Asian
Price: $5 - $15
The chicken wings at Ninja Kitchen may take a little time to get, but that usually means that food is coming to you fresh. These wings are crunchy and packed with flavor - the perfect meal for up-and-coming ninjas! These are our favorite mid-day snacks at LEGOLAND California. The Ninja Kitchen isn't open every day though, so if you see it open while you visit, don't miss the opportunity!
