Best fries. Ever. Hands down. And relatively inexpensive considering it is in a theme park. A basket of fries fed 2 of us for a meal. And they always cut the fries fresh. Try the loaded fries. Totally delishious.

Locals will tell you to be sure to visit at the Potato Patch. All fries freshly made with a variety of toppings. You have to get an order as part of your visit. Stand is over near the Thunderbolt. You will not regret it

You have to stop at the Potato Patch. The wait is long but the fries are good. You can get them with cheese, vinegar, or gravy. The kids loved it and we got to enjoy childhood memories.

You can get better fries with cheese at most gas stations at one tenth of the price. Everyone told me "You gotta try the potato patch fries" when I took my first (and likely only) visit to Kennywood, so I did. After shelling out $9, I was rewarded with a paper basket that was soaked with so much oil that... More

The serving of fries I received was already in a container just sitting in the table...It appeared to be MUCH smaller than other orders I saw being served and more than half the fries were tiny little pieces. The only good thing is the cheese on the side didn't cost extra...however it was extra sloppy because kids don't care about... More

I heard these fries were the best ever. However, they were barely warm, and they were greasy and limp. They didn't have much flavor either and needed lots of salt. I have a feeling we got a batch that had been sitting around for awhile.

It's a must that every time I visit Kennywood park I have to get some fries. I just love the fries. They have a variety of toppings for your fries and give you plenty. A must try if you plan on a visit to Kennywood Park.
