Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food Review

A day at any theme park requires endless walking and waiting (for rides), which inevitably builds quite an appetite. With my Universal annual pass in its final day of validity, I wanted to return to the park for a tour of all of my favorite attractions and get one more Universal restaurant review in before I head back to Baltimore for an extended stretch.  While there were a few in-park restaurants I was considering, […]

Though it may seem stereotypical, I do think at some level Jimmy Buffett’s […]
