Only a little more than a week after Universal Orlando first announced the Springfield expansion of The Simpsons Ride area, Fast Food Boulevard opened this morning, bringing guests into iconic locations from the classic animated TV series. It’s all enough to make any fan shout, “Woo hoo!”

Now open at Universal Studios Florida are Moe’s Tavern, Krusty Burger, Cletus’ Chicken Shack, the Frying Dutchman, Luigi’s Pizza and more, all serving up previously fictional food and drinks – including Duff Beer.

Home and Marge were on hand to mark the special “Moe-ment” as the doors to Moe’s Tavern opened for the first time just after 10:30 a.m. today.

Fast Food Boulevard takes the place of a former quick serve restaurant in the theme park and retains the same basic flow. Other than Moe’s Tavern, each of the named locations is not its own individual establishment, but rather part of a row of quick service counters within one big eatery inside. Krusty Burger is not a full service restaurant unto itself, but rather a seating area for all of the food served within.

Guests can freely wander between stations, ordering from each of the long-desired menus, picking out a Clogburger from Krusty Burger, Double-Battered Chicken from Cletus’ Chicken Shack, or a Flaming Moe from the bar at Moe’s Tavern. And employees are dressed with themed costumes to match each of the areas.


Moe’s Tavern

In “The Simpsons,” Moe’s Tavern is run by grouchy bartender Moe Szyslak, frequenty by Homer Simpson, Barney Gumble, and many other Springfield residents. Now at Universal Orlando, guests can step inside, sit alongside Barney at the bar, order a Duff Beer – brewed just for the park – and a Flaming Moe. Loud belching optional.

Here’s Moe’s Tavern from “The Simpsons” for comparison:

The decor matches what’s seen in “The Simpsons” exactly, from the pool table in the center of the room (which is covered with plexiglass to be used as a dining table) to the TV playing clips from “The Simpsons” next to the bar to the Love Tester, which actually works.

Duff Beer is indeed an alcoholic drink, an actual alcoholic beer intended only for adults. It tastes like… beer. Some liken it to Budweiser. It’s currently served in tall disposable plastic cups or glass bottles, which guests cannot take with them. They will soon offer aluminum bottles as souvenirs. Duff Beer is also available in Lite and Dry variations.

The Flaming Moe is not served on fire, but is an orange flavored soda, served in a special layered cup with dry ice underneath to make it bubble. It’s non-alocholic and the plastic cup can be kept as a souvenir.

It’s a perfectly reproduced environment that will have fans of “The Simpsons” wanting to spend all day in.

Update (6/7/13) – Framed artwork has been added to the walls of Moe’s Tavern featuring famous moments from “The Simpsons” show, plus some Duff ads.

Krusty Burger

Krusty the Clown’s famous fast food restaurant is now made a reality for the first time at Universal Orlando. It’s a combination of a seating area and a counter service ordering area, split from each other, so not exactly its own establishment.

Its greasy burgers are tasty, but not exactly easy on the stomach. They’re topped with a special sauce and served with curly fries.

The rest of Fast Food Boulevard features several individual counter service spots to grab food quickly from.

Cletus Spuckler now has his own restaurant, Cletus’ Chicken Shack, turning his Springfield farm house into a business, doubling as the facade for the entrance to the eatery. Here he’s offering up double-battered chicken, chicken and waffles and, well, more chicken dishes.

The Android’s Dungeon

But what of the Comic Book Guy? As it turns out, The Android’s Dungeon does not really exist at Universal Orlando. Instead, this store front is merely a facade with absolutely nothing behind it except restrooms and a pathway.

Still To Come

Still under construction are the Duff Brewery, Lard Lad, statue of Jebediah Springfield, and Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl ride, all set to open within a month or so, seen in the concept artwork and video below.

But even without these areas open, fans of “The Simpsons” can already rush out to Universal Studios Florida to sip some Duff Beer and a Flaming Moe, chow down on a Krusty Burger and some chicken ‘n’ waffles, and wander through some of the most famous animated locations ever created.

        1. jack

          Will it all be open by the end of June? including the Duff Brewery, Lard Lad, statue of Jebediah Springfield, and Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl ride

  3. Nick

    I thought it was known Android’s was just a restroom?

    1. Ricky Brigante

      Those who keep up on theme park topics or have visited the park during construction may have figured that out, but anyone who simply saw Universal’s recently-released artwork for this may have thought otherwise, so I wanted to make it quite clear.

  4. While the bar is family friendly, it is a bar. Being a bar they serve beer. In the show, the beer of choice is Duff Beer, which has been recreated by Florida Beer Company(from what team members told us) exclusively for Universal Orlando’s Springfield area. The beer is available on tap in Duff, Duff Light and Duff Dry. Duff Dry is sold in bottles, but because the bottles are glass, guests aren’t allowed to keep them. We were told that the bottles would soon be shipped in aluminum, which will also make for a great souvenir. However, the star of the bar is a Flaming Moe.

    1. anyomus vistor star-w

      yeha although the flaming moe is just orange soda with dry ice thats makes it bubble and smoke and i agree the flaming moe is the super star of the bar

  5. melvin

    Do you know if you have to make reservations to eat at Krusty or Moes?

    1. Billy

      No you don’t have to make a reservation I am a cashier their, come by you will have a blast there

  6. ILDC

    Where’s Bumblebee Man’s restaurant?

    1. anyomus vistor star-w

      if that is the energon stand’s name then it it rummured to open in florida soon if this is simsons then i am sorry but it won’t be in the expansion accourding to the concept art

  7. bl bly

    And as usual at a Disney owned facility it’s WAY OVERPRICED.

    1. no

      not Disney, universal it even in the title

      1. bl bly

        Sorry no my bad, but I was then and still am shocked at the prices. That plus the entrance price for these theme parks is outrageous. I make a pretty good livin but there’s no way I would even consider takin 8 people(3 adults,5 grandkids) there.

  8. Borat

    Is it odd that most of this makes this one expensive to get into and eat at restaurant based on the Simpsons?

  9. Jeff Lynch

    I can’t decide what I want to try first! A Flaming Moe maybe? I have always wanted to have a Lard Lad donut too. I am going to be working my brain hard trying to figure out what to do first when I go there!!!!

  23. You want people to participate, not get discouraged by how difficult and complex the contest
    requirements are. The business page should definitely display general information for its future
    customers like the current business address, their contact numbers, the company.
    Using a URL shortening service to create short URLs also allows you to quickly share links with friends and family via Facebook,
    e-mail, and instant messenger – or on forums and comment
    sections – without the fear of it being dropped or mangled because of strange punctuation within the URL.
