Wow. They'll put anything on a stick. I wonder if, at beaver amusement parks, they serve stick on a stick...

I had a bison burger with steak fries that was pretty good. It was from the international food stand kinda near Phoenix.

The Bison Burger is great, also at the same stand they have Aligator Bites. Yes, Aligator. The dipping sauce that goes with them is really good. Get them at the International Food Court by the Mining Museum and the Black Diamond across from the Round Up.

I tried the alligator bites a coupla years ago. The other times I had been there previously, they didn't have them. I've had worse foods. It's just something I wanted to say I tried once.

Never had the bison burger, though.

Had bison burgers at a privately run folk festival a month or two ago, and they were delicious!!!

There are not enough foods on sticks, and there are not enough foods with cilantro.

And I just ate and am still somehow hungry. Heh...

If you're not in a hurry, I would recommend trying out the Alamo-- the indoor one. It's been awhile since I ate there, but I do remember the food being really good. Better than some "regular" restaurants I've been to. They offer sandwiches and salads, but they also have platters and dinners. Platters include the entree and sides, while dinners include a larger portion entree and an additional side. I know in past visits I've had broiled pork chops (1 for platter, 2 for a dinner) and a full turkey dinner with all the fixin's. Prices were reasonable, and probably less than what you'd pay at CF or SF parks for fast food.

Another good choice is the Oasis (cafeteria)-- the place with the burning torches in front. They offer a different food each night. I'm partial to the BBQ chicken. Again, you get sides included, and can also buy other items a la carte.

Can't leave the park without having ice cream. Visit either the Old Mill (near the rotating pavilion) or the soft ice cream stand behind the Alamo near Playland. Soft-serve stand is open maybe 10-15 minutes after park closing just because of all the people who buy ice cream before leaving the park. But they won't serve sundaes or shakes after closing. Depending on your server, you'll get either a large or humongous pile of ice cream on top of the cone.

Do they still have "crunch" topping for the ice cream? YUM!

This is really awesome information, everyone. I can't believe that I never saw half this stuff, and I can't wait to blow my weekly allowance on one day at Knoebels. It is gonna be epic. :)

Other goodies at the Wharf besides the D&D Pita: Fancy Fries (waffle fries with cheese and ranch dressing) and the Spud Platter (waffle fries with chili).

Im going in 3 three weeks and I have some follow up questions. I've been three times before but I wouldn't say I have tried many of these "can't miss items".

First I'd say frozen appled cider is literally the best drink i've ever had. I dragged my cousin down for ppp in 2010 and the only chance I would have of getting him back is reminding him of the cider. Is the frozen Ice tea in that same stand or somewhere different? When I was there they only had the cider and jolly rancher... We spent about a half hour with the old man running the stand making fun of the jolly rancher option and he admitted he unplugged the machine so that nobody would make the false choice of getting that over the cider. Really good guy.

About the old mill ice cream... Is it soft serve, or hard? If I brag about how awesome it is to my family and it ends up being soft serve I will never hear the end of it. Not soft serve fans.

Is it true oasis is only open on weekends? and is it a sit down like the alamo? Seems to me they offer up one food a night like a fish fry, or a bbq night.. I think one time they had spaghetti when I was there. I have never eaten there however.

The pizza is good. Nothing speacial, but good.

I recomend the fresh lemonaide however sometime you need to ask for more sugar. Or sometimes they give you too much sugar.

Frozen apple cider sounds so good right now. SO good. Hmmm...could I make it to Knoebels before they close for a quick spin on Phoenix and the others and still get cider? Probably...hehehehe...

DKNY, the Old Mill is hard ice cream, not soft-serve. Cones are huge, sundaes and splits are huger.

Oasis is cafeteria style. You grab a tray, plate and utensils, and walk through the line as the workers serve you whatever items you want. There's a self-serve drink dispenser and also small cabinets with side items and desserts you can buy a la carte. There is a large seating area to the back (across from the Pirate Ship). It's covered but open-air, and mostly long tables. Friday is generally Fish Fry night. The weekends are BBQ chicken. They also have a spaghetti night and a meat loaf night. You can also buy pizza to eat in or "take out."

The frozen sweet tea stand is across from the entrance to the Swings (Italian Trapeze). I think the other stand you mentioned is around the corner heading towards the Carousel. Which reminded me a few more Knoebels treats. At this same stand, they serve caramel apple chips. Apple cut into 6-8 pieces, covered with caramel sauce then nuts and whipped cream (both optional). And it counts as a serving of fruit!

At the stand around the corner, they serve frozen hot chocolate. Yum. Another thing I tried that honestly wasn't too bad was the Monte Cristo sandwich they serve at the stand on the side of the Saloon. Not the best one I've ever had, but a decent alternate if you don't want a bigger meal and want something other than the usual dogs and burgers.

The frozen hot chocolate was just about the only thing I've already had, but it is SO good. The place I used to work had that same company of frozen hot chocolate, as well as a mint chocolate that was delicious.

I thought the food at Knoebels was just ok. Maybe its because I'm not into the deep fried or meat business. I do admit they have a lot of restaurants, probably more than parks 2x the size. For me the park food king is still CA Disneyland.

I've been eating the pizza at Knoebels/Cesari's for years and I would say it's the best pizza I've had at a park, and yeah Delgrosso's has good pizza too from what I can remember, only been there once though.

I really enjoy the waffles and ice cream from the round stand near the Haunted Mansion too.
