Two sentence insider summary
Homer Simpsons’ favorite bar is faithfully recreated in Fast Food Blvd and filled with great photo ops like The Love Tester and an actual-sized(?) Barney Gumble figure. Here you can quench your thirst with the exclusive Duff beer (if you’re 21 or over) or watch in awe as the signature Flaming Moe drink is brought to life in front of your eyes.

OI fun facts
On The Simpsons TV series, there is a running joke that Duff, Duff Lite, and Duff Dry are all the same beer. In Fast Food Blvd, they are completely different and are brewed by the Florida Beer Company based out of Melbourne, Florida. Taste wise, regular Duff is most comparable to Heineken, Duff Lite to Miller Lite, and Duff Dry to Guinness. All three drinks are exclusively sold at Universal Studios Florida.

The Flaming Moe’s “flaming” effect is created using dry ice and a special cup that has a bottom compartment to hold the ice. When the drink is first served, it bubbles like it is boiling with smoke coming off of it. While the drink itself is just orange soda, the surprisingly fun and effective “flaming” presentation lasts up to five minutes — making the Flaming Moe possibly the first signature drink in any park that can compete with butterbeer in terms of overall appeal.

On opening day, all three versions of Duff were available in glass bottles. But because the bottles were, in fact, made out of glass, the beer had to be poured into a cup and customers were not allowed to take the bottles with them (it’s a park policy regarding glass containers). Aluminum bottles are coming soon.

Moe’s Tavern is used for seating by the other restaurants in Fast Food Blvd as well. Even the pool table has cleverly been converted over to an actual table, which large groups can use to have a meal together while enjoying the atmosphere. After paying for you food at the Fast Food Blvd cash registers, ask team members to seat you in Moe’s.

If Springfield Actually Exists
Date Of Last Visit: January 22, 2014

If the Simpsons was an actual TV show, walking into Moe's Tavern would be the equivalent of walking onto the TV set.

The attention to detail is amazing. They have a love tester in the corner right next to the giant statue of Barney drinking a beer. Simpsons fans will absolutely love stopping by here, even if its just to get out of the sun, cool off and watch some Simpsons moments on TV.

The Duff beer was nice and cold and it reminded me of a Coors light. Nothing special, but it can hit the spot. We tried a Flaming Moe as well, and while they're a bit pricey, as a Simpsons fan, it was worth it just for the experience to watch smoke come pouring off your glass as you drink what is basically orange soda. You are paying more for the souvenir cup than the drink itself.

There are plenty of spots at the bar and tables along the edges and even the "pool table" is completly plexiglassed over, turning it into a usable seating area for guests.

Moe's also connects to the Simpsons fast food boulevard where you can sample everything from Salads to a Krusty Burger.

If you're fan of the show, this is not to be missed. Even if you're not a huge Simpsons fan, don't skip this - you'll love the attention to detail.

Fan Tip: - Don't miss the Kwik-E-Mart gift shop right next door. You can pick up your "Bort" key chain or shot glasses there before they run out like they do in the Duff Gardens episode.

Duff Beer is Good For You...Right?
Date Of Last Visit: July 14, 2013

I love this place! It is an awesome atmosphere that feels totally real. My favorite part is the phone that rings with Bart on the other end prank calling whoever answers. It is such a wonderful touch to the bar!

The only issue I had is that I have very specific food allergies (food dyes in particular) which make ordering things at places like Universal - where they don't like to reveal their ingredients - difficult. Every time I go, I ask what is in the specific item (like a Flaming Moe) and the bartenders are reluctant to respond. After I explain why I want to know (not to replicate it at my very own, second rate Universal Studios CT where I live) they are usually happy to check if my particular allergen is in the item. This visit, the bartender refused to tell me if it was safe for me to drink. I asked to see a manager but they 'couldn't find one'.

Again, I understand their fear of the copy-cats out there but for safety reasons, I thought it was a strange response. I personally work at a restaurant with proprietary blends of items and if a guest needs to know something for an allergy reason, we do everything in our power to look it up without revealing the ingredients.

I guess I'll have to settle for Duff beer instead.

All that said, this place was totally fun and I still use my Duff Beer souvenir (plastic) glass regularly!

Tavern on the theme
Date Of Last Visit: April 2014

When you are traveling through USF and your feet are tired and your throat is parched, out of the hazy Florida heat rises Moe's Tavern! We had been walking and walking and walking. It was 5 o'clock somewhere and the Duff beer was calling us. You walk in and sit at a real bar in a theme park! The Simpsons theming is right on! Whether you want the non alcoholic Flaming Moe which is so cool because it really does smoke or only a Duff beer will quench your thirst, this is the place to take a load off. If you are hungry, which we were not, you can bring your food in from the other fast food options and enjoy the colorful atmosphere. Maybe the pool "table" will be available or maybe take a stab at the "Love Tester," the flashy lights do attract attention!

Like the show!
Date Of Last Visit: 10/13

Moe's takes you inside of a television with its atmosphere! From the set up of the bar to the pool tables, everything is up to par. Even the windows give you that illustrated look. The service was pretty good too. My fiancé grabbed a Duff Beer and said it was pretty good. Tip: We hid out here during the hot day and took a break from HHN's long lines at night.

Transported right into Springfield!
Date Of Last Visit: September 2013

The Simpsons Fast Boulevard is one of the best things that has come to Universal! Where else can you sit at Moe’s Tavern and have a Duff Beer or Buzz Cola?! NOWHERE! I cannot say enough good things about this place. During my first visit I was sitting at the bar in awe of it all. I could spend hours at Moe’s, relaxing at the bar, enjoying a cold beverage (and Lard Lad Doughnut!)

When you open the door you are transported right into Springfield. The décor and all of the details are amazing! Each time you visit you can spot something new. All of the beverages are really tasty (I'm a Buzz Cola addict!)and the bartenders are wonderful as well, very friendly and top notch service!
