One of the many reasons that I buy a season pass to Kennywood Park

Simple, fresh, delicious fries that you will crave all winter long! I love the cheese but they have other toppings too. If you go to the Lil' Potato patch in the lost kennywood section of kennywood, they also have chicken strips

"Park fries" are everyone's favorite and Kennywood's are at top of a lot of peoples list. Not just plain fries of course, several different toppings are available. Expect to wait in a long line on busy days.

The fries are soggy, they're not fried in oil they're only heated in oil, nasty. Fried potatoes should have at least some firmness, I prefer crispy but would settle for at least fried.

They have really good French fries. I suggest getting them with cheese and bacon. The prices are decent. You may have to wait a little, do to the fact there fries are really popular, and ther lines get long quickly.

When they are good they are awesome, but when its packed and they are in a hurry you usually get uncooked or burnt fries :(

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!!
