Non-park food

Go right ahead Dragon Lady. i'll even toss in a few of my favorites: In Conord, nh, there's the Draft, Penuchie's, and the Barley House.

Heck, beer goes greath with food, and we all (okay, most) enjoy a cold brew after a hard day riding coasters.

I hear that the Yeungling Brewery is worth the trip. *** Edited 4/4/2008 2:47:54 PM UTC by Hopman***

Yeungling is worth the trip. I pass through Pottsville on my way to Knoebel's. It's best to call first to make sure you can coordinate your stop with a brewery tour.

When I have a few extra days in the summer, I plan a little Dorney, visit relatives, Knoebels , Hershey trip. With stops, of course, for beer.

I try to do Hershey last so that I can stop at Stoudt's on the way home. During the summer, they have beer fests, complete with an oompah band and pig roast, every Saturday. ( I'm vegetarian but usually travel with carnivores and they love it.) Perfect way to end the trip.

Same Adams in Boston is cool. It's acutually a bit hidden, but if you can find it, it's cool.

Yes I enjoy trying new beers, but I'm not a "brewshound" like some people are. There are as many different coasters as there are types of beer. Let's enjoy them all.

Yuengling offers a great tour. You're much closer to the action- not behind glass panels. They let you look into the empty kettles, let you watch them filling kegs, they even take you into "the caves" which is where they used to store the beer below ground in the days before refrigeration.

If you go during the week, the bottling works is the next to best part. You won't hear a thing the tour guide says, but it's great watching the operation. It won't be operating if you go on a Saturday.

The only caveat is that you must wear footwear that covers the heel. No flip-flops or sandals. There's a lot of ascending and descending stairs. And the best part of all is the free samples at the end-- two per person. Birch beer for kids and non-beer drinkers.

Down in Lancaster, there's a place that opened recently called Iron Hill that's a brewery and restaurant. I've heard some favorable things about it, but it sounds a bit upscale in price and atmosphere.

The new "Coaster-buzz." Dedicated to those things you put under your beer glass. :)

Sean Menefee's avatar Our annual trips out to Holiday World always end in at least one visit to Jasper Indiana's Schnitzelbank German restaurant.

Their potato pancakes, apple butter, and two inch pork chops are to die for.

Huber's Family Farm is also a winner with us California folks as well. :)

Geeze! I just started this thread innocently enough. I guess many of us enjoy a good brew when the day's over. That's life. How does the saying "ride, drink & be jolly?"

Right by BGA is a place called Mel's hotdogs. You can't miss it. They have a Volkswagon bug in front with a hotdog sticking out the front and back. They serve Chicago style food like hotdogs and italian beefs. Good stuff.

If you like pizza pubs with great pizza and throwing peanut shells on the ground, if you go out SFGAm's back exit (Washington St.), make a right and it's about 5 miles down on the left called Bill's Pub North. Awesome pizza and a great looking themed restaurant.

I tried In-and-Out when I was in California and it reminded me of Wendys.


My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar Chet and Matt's is always a fave near CP. Whenever I go to any park I usually try to eat at a "local" place whether it's a mom and pop or a place that we don't have around here, or anywhere that a local would recommend.

I mean you can eat at McD's or Burger King ANYWHERE. I like to live a little. :)

Lou Manalti's (sp?) in Chicago is always another place I like. We don't have Red Robins around here so I usually try to hit one of those up as well. LOVE their burgers!

There's so many. :) The last time I went through Philadelphia (coming from Great Adventure) I went OUT of my way to stop by my favorite place where I used to go to in college, Abner's. I hadn't had a real cheesesteak in about 7 years so it was definitely a treat. :) Abner's is in University City and beats the SOCKS off of the "tourist" places that you see on TV. ;)

Eating (and trying out different places) is a BIG part of my coaster trips. :) It's mostly bad food, but isn't that the point of road trips? ;)

The last PPP trip my friends and I ate at Mom's Dutch Kitchen near the interstate and found it to be awesome. The portions are HUGE and I mean HUGE, and it's cheap. Nothing like a good, rib-sticking mom and pop breakfast before hitting the road. :)

I'll second that point about the BIG breakfast. That's why I love these diners up here.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar Did someone mention Yuengling? :) GOD I miss that stuff!

The tour is pretty awesome. The place smells like a dorm room but the tour is the bomb! I enjoyed it more than the tour at Busch Gardens. ;)

Just saw this one. Might be fun to take in a few of these places. And they're so darn close, to me at least.

That would be a dream come true, Hopman. Coasters named after brews or vice versa...cool!

I want to do one of those bus tours that enthusiasts do with stops at microbreweries and parks instead of just parks or baseball stadiums, etc. Ten breweries and 50 coasters in ten days or something along those lines.

- Here's another big vote for Chet & Matt's...we never, ever leave Sandusky without at least 1-2 trips too get there pizza buffet.

The only other place I truly love to eat at everytime were up there is TGI Friday's, (preferably the Hotel Breaker's location near sunset...very beautiful!). The Grilled Chicken and Cheese keeps me coming back.

- As for Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge...we really love to hit up the BBQ places while were down there. But Denny's is a guilty pleasure too. We only have one left in Dayton, and it's a total dump. The kids usually talk us into Mr. Gatti's pizza buffet in Sevierville too.

- Mt. O does have tremendous Gyros, I have to agree. The Pizza Ranch, down the street from Mt. O has a great buffet too. IMO, second only to Chet & Matt's.

- The little shopping center across from Holiday World has a Sandwich/pizza/ice cream joint that we always manage to hit a least once. The name slips me right now though.

Gee, is it obvious we like pizza buffets in our family??

rollergator's avatar Talking with one of my friends that went with me to go ride Boardwalk Bullet reminded me, so I do need to mention: Landry's.

If you were on a tight budget, you wouldn't have gone to Kemah in the first place. ;)

Dragonlady, I have a few ideas along those lines:

Yankee Cannoball lager: A TRUE Classic

Corkscrew stout: "It'll make your head spin!"

Millienium Force Pilsner: "Smooth from beginning to end!

TTD: "What just hit me?"
