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

These fries are nowhere near what they've been made out to be. Had the bacon cheddar with brown gravy...Overlooked, limp, dark (old oil?), oily fries doused in toppings. I had my hopes up for these and saved them as a treat for the end of the day. Sadly, my hopes and dreams for delicious, fresh fries were shattered. Go in... More

I know they are just fresh cut fries but something they do just makes them awesome! Love the cheese and season salt! It did appear to be less in the basket this year though. The lines can get very very long. Small fry sells them too but there are less order lines which can take just as long. I think... More

Have grown up less than 10 miles away and always come here. The wait is usually bad but last year it was beyond anything you could imagine. One of the girls was just unbelievably slow. Any slower she would've been in reverse. By the time we were close enough to see what was happening, it was too late to leave... More

The Potato Patch fries are to die for --- plus you can get the topping of your choice -- cheese, gravy or bacon. You really can't beat them.

I ate two orders myself. I have to have these every single time I am at Kennywood or Idlewild. Overpiced, but you really can't put a price on being the best, I suppose. It's amusement park food, of course it has a high pricetag!
