These are served from the food truck located near the Chez Alcatraz beverage stand in the San Francisco area of Universal Studios Florida.

These sandwiches come in three varieties: Buffalo, Banh-Mi, and BBQ.

Each one is a good quality sandwich like what you might get a good sandwich shop. The sandwich rolls are soft. which is great. However, the soft bread can sometimes not be worthy of the large amount of sauce, chicken tenders, and toppings. Make sure you get plenty of napkins to avoid making a mess. If you order the Banh-Mi, the sauce is great but can create a damp sandwich. These satisfying theme park entrées will cost you $13.99.

  1. Arepas

Arepas being sold in food trucks is becoming a staple for Universal Orlando. These are also found in the San Francisco area.

Arepas are common Latin American food. The shell is made of cornmeal with a crispy outside and fluffy inside. These Items can be compared to a stuffed fluffy tortilla but that is underselling them.

At Universal, these are filled with pork, beef, or cheese. The price point is under $10. These are also hearty snacks but not as filling as the chicken sandwiches.

  1. Pumpkin Spice Shake

This item is sold at the Haagen-Dazs location in Universal Studios Florida. The Pumpkin Spice shake is a limited time menu item.

Now if you are a fan of pumpkin pie spice, then this is the dessert for you. The Dulce de Leche ice cream works well with this shake. This treat could work for the Thanksgiving season as well, but, we will have to wait to see if it sticks around.

The price point is $9.99 which might be a bit high, but the quality of flavors may make it worth it.
