Simpsons' Springfield Fast Food Boulevard: Duff Beer and Krusty Burgers Are Real! (Video)

First Universal Studios allowed us to drink Butterbeer and eat Bertie Bott's Beans with Harry Potter. Now, Simpsons fans can chow down on Krusty Burgers and down Duff beer right in downtown Springfield.

The new area expands on the already-existing Simpsons Ride and includes shops, attractions and a new ride, the Twirl & Hurl.

But we're in it for the beer -- as in Duff beer at Moe's -- the place where Homer and the gang tank up on brewskis. The beer is "brewed exclusively" for Universal Orlando (though we bought and drank Duff beer in Italy a few months ago).

Hungry? Stroll down Fast Food Boulevard to find Krusty Burger, made with "Krusty-certified" meat) $9.99; a Meat Liker's pizza at Luigi's ($7.79); a Basket O' Bait at the Frying Dutchman; or some doughnuts at Lard Lad.

Vegetarians will go crazy for Lisa's Teahouse of Horrors, stocked with hummus, salads, and fruit cups.
