Fries were missing salt! No trays available so I could not get salt because I was carrying 3 bowls of loaded fries and a drink through the crowd. I only ate half of them because they were pretty blah, even with the cheese and bacon.

The fries are always great! Only problem is that they only come in one size that is an extra extra large. I really enjoyed eating them but it killed my appetite for other goodies at the park that day. Also, I was surprised when paying for my order of cheese and bacon fries and a small drink that my $10... More

Boy I remember the lines to buy cheese fries or plain fries with barbecue seasoning. The potato patch is still the most popular food attraction while you are in the park. I remember when it first opened great memories!!

There are no other fries that I have ever had that compare to the Potato Patch fries. Make sure to add the cheese sauce and sprinkle them with seasoning salt. Sit back and enjoy the sites and sounds of people having fun!

Long time kennywood patron, have been getting fries for decades- hated today. While I appreciate they make the fries fresh, the lines were insane. There has to be a way make the line move better. Also, BBQ seasoning?? No, it's old bay. There's tons of bacon- but that's the only bonus.

Do yourself a favor, stand in the line, forget about the diet, get messy, and enjoy the yumminess! People wait all year for these fries but do keep in mind if you're not a fan of fresh cut, you may not care for these fries!

A meal in and of itself! A small is sufficient and love the cheese and gravy toppings. This is for the one at Kennywood, we didn't try them at Sandcastle, the line was WAY too long.

I recently went to Kennywood and while i normally always get potato patch fries I did not this particular time. However I would like to comment on the efficiency of the new line set up! Oh my god amazing. They have now put up railings and you pay before you get your order. Which actually really seems to be working.... More
