A Taste of Kennywood

The Potato Patch
Potato Patch fries are a Kennywood Park staple that have won awards for years

Heading to Kennywood Park this season? In between rides, be sure to sample some award winning amusement park food including Potato Patch French Fries.  As you can see from the sign, The Potato Patch has world class fries and were rated as North America’s Best French Fries 8 years in a row!

Though the fries aren’t exactly heart-healthy, you can get a number of toppings on them included in the price. TasteBudA always goes for cheesy-bacon fries, while I tend to lean for a more traditional season salt and malt vinegar.

Spending the entire day at Kennywood Park, be sure to pace yourself and eat your way from the front of the Park all the way to Lost Kennywood.  Potato Patch Fries, Batter-dipped Oreo Cookies and the square hand-dipped ice cream on a stick are all must-haves.  So be sure to have some salads the day before, because Kennywood food, like the rides, are not for the feint of heart.
