The Potato Patch is an institution! If you visit Kennywood Park, it's an absolute must to get the fries.

Fresh cut spuds, gooey cheese, and topped with bacon. A healthy alternative to a salad...lol. Gotta eat this and enjoy cause you're at Kennywood.

Great fries and many memories to go along with them. They are delicious with plain, with cheese or ketchup.

THE best fries hands down. Can't go to Kennywood park and not eat these. My family usually gets cheese and bacon on them but i like to get vinegar on them!!!

What happens to you when you get in line for your potato fries is something you will have to experience for yourself. The smells the sights the excitement you feel when that long line starts to move, its a moment to remember...then it happens, YOU'RE NEXT, "1 large fries, please..with gravy," The taste is indescribable and the amazing thing is...

Unfortunately, there is usually a bit of a wait in line, but the food is always extremely fresh and delicious! A number of toppings and sauces available. It's interesting to watch the employees slice the potatoes and cook them up - the entire process is completed right there in front of you, so you're guaranteed fresh food.

Abundant fries overflow the paper basket! Yummy with bacon & cheese topping or dipping in vinegar. Generous portions!
