Knoebels wins in the food department by a long shot. They have their own pizza Cesari's which has won best pizza in a park 8 years in a row! They also have an international food court where you can get anything from buffalo & ostrich burgers to pasta, kilbasi, tacos & burritos and salads. They also have a sit down restraunt The Alamo and an all you can eat place where every day is a different meal. They also have fresh cut fries that rival Kennywoods. They also have the usual park stuff coton candy, candy apples, popcorn, funnel cake, cheese on a stick, hand dipped and soft ice cream. The best thing is that NO meal will cost more than TEN BUCKS.
Parks hit for 2000!
Of all the parks I have been to so far, I would have to go with Kennywood.
Kennywood had the best french fries I have ever had in my life. Hot, golden, lightly crisp on the outside, soft in the middle. Not too thick and not shoe strings either. Man, is this ever making me hungry just thinking about it. The other stuff there is good too, and dirt cheap for a park!
Disneyland has the Bleu Bayou (spelling) which is inside the Pirates of the Carribean. If you are willing to spend a bundle, ($30 per person at least) you get a real gourmet meal. I have been there a few times and it is truly top notch. I know the average coaster lover ain't gonna pay that much for a lunch, but if you are...
As fot Knott's, the Chicken Dinner Restaurant has the most famous theme park food ever. It is what started the park! Dinner there is no more than $20 per person, not that bad.
I know that it doesn't have a rollercoaster, but Epcot has the best food by far. All of the different countries have restaraunts that are incredible. If you go there, make reservations at the China pavillion.
Potatoe Works and the Wings restaraunt at PKI are the best at the park. I especially (sp?) like Potatoe Works' big, freshly, cut french fries with the side of the cheddar cheese dip. Mmmmmmmmm.....french fries. O.K. I'm drooling just thinking about it. I think I'll go to the fridge. LOL! ;)

Another vote for epcot here. I love the japanese steakhouse where they fix your food in front of you. Also, inside the mexico pavillion are Wonderful margurita's! Epcot does have test track, not exactly a coaster, but enjoyable. Use the singles line for shorter waits.
There is a great sitdown resturant at IOA. Its the Confisco Grill. During lunch there are charecters coming around. I must say I had a great time. The food is awesome! For an appetizer they have Onion rings that were fried in pinapple juice. They rule!
