or worse yet an airport. :-)

I dunno, the food at the various places in PIT is really pretty good. Now that I'm probably letting my USAirways Club membership lapse (I loved it, but I don't expect to be flying enough this year to really use it) I'll probably be hitting them more -- no more "free" (is it really free when you've paid $350 for the right to go up and get them?) soft drinks and crackers in the clubs... *** Edited 1/15/2004 7:45:37 PM UTC by GregLeg***

Of course, you forgot to mention that everything at Subway tastes like crap.

Not true, the polystyrene cups aren't that bad compared to the rest of it.

I don't have a problem with Subway's subs, the ones at SFA are pretty good. I just wish they were full service and had all of the various sauces.

I love eating at that Friday's next to Cedar Point! We also always went to that Pizza Hut right outside the park that had an all day buffet, but I think they are closed now. That's what I would really like to see-a Pizza Hut or Papa John's place in a park.

The last I recall, SFOG had a Pizza Hut as one of the resturants in the Promenade Area (Or maybe just providing the food for a resturant, either way, the logo was there). Some of the best tasting Pizza I've ever had! :)

Hey, don't you be dissin' my pizza sub with just lettuce.

SFOG also has a seasonal Micky D's in USA.

And about fast food at parks, it's stupid. i don't like it.

If you want good prices, think small. Best food i've ever had at a park is Holiday World's 3.50(!) frito pie and taco deal.

I would prefer Kennywood's french fries over any fast food fries.

I completely agree. The food experience at Kennywood was one of the best I've ever had at a park. It was excellent, large servings, and extremely low-priced! I even got a Phantoms Revenge cup for like $3.99.

As far as tastes and different menus, BGW offered us the best selection. Definitely the best food I've had inside a park.

As far as the fast food restaurants go, I rarely visit them. Usually, they provide a low-quality version of the food at the real place and at about twice the price.

I dont mind leaving the park for half an hour or so to go grab a decently priced meal right outside.

Most of the fast food in parks I'm familiar with has been mentioned. Not sure that I saw Subway at SFA though. I like it best when the fast food has a local flavor such as Nathan's at Great Adventure or Skyline at PKI. (Though I can't stand Skyline's chili)

Even the Skyline is better outside the park. :-)

If that's the case Tina, I sure am glad I didn't try it IN the park.....that must be truly AWFUL! :(

Oh, and I definitely remember the Subway at SFA....it was near Wild One...but the Old Bay seasoning for the Boardwalk fries MADE the feeding stop that day...;)

Jim, I'm pretty sure there are TWO Subways in SFA. One is definitely right near the exit of Wild One (by the gokarts) and the other one (i think) is near the Octopus...but I might have made the second part up.

I dont really care one way or the other about chains in parks. Most of the food is so bland, I forget I'm eating while I'm eating. As long as it staves off the dreaded "hunger headache" the place could be McDonalds, Bubba Gump's Shrimp Shack, or Beavis' Butt-Nuggets.

--who thought the only standout park food was the Canadain Smokehouse @ BGW and (most impressive) the Norwegian Buffet @ World Showcase in Epcot (w00t!) ;)

If I do eat in a park I usually go for something that is exclusive. My favorite place at PKI is "It's Fried". At CP it's "The Happy Friar".

You can eat at fast foods anytime.

You're right about the placement of the second Subway. It's right next to Shiprwreck Falls caddy-corner to the Octopus. The third Subway is in the waterpark.
