Before anything else, here are the two rules of this thread:
1. Please follow the format (see below).
2. Please DO NOT post comments on this thread, only reviews. Comments will be deleted. In-other-words, this is not a discussion thread.



The Question:
Why spend money trying everything yourself when you can hear what others who have tried it have to say?

The Answer:
We need a place to publish our reviews of the different meals in the park to help others and we need a place to read the thoughts of others so we can make more informed choices.

The General Idea:
The idea is simple- everyone does their best to contribute their "mini-reviews" of the meals that they eat while at the park.

The Format:
Here is an example of what your review should look like:
Quote:Restaurant: La Cucina
Meal: Philly Steak Sandwich
Price: About $9
Pros: The bun and veggies were good. Also nice that it comes with fries.
Cons: There isn't much cheese and the meat is unbearably dry- it was so dry in fact that I had to put ketchup on it just to finish it.
Recommended: No

Can be as short or as long as you'd like, just please include the name of the restaurant/eatery, the name of the meal, the price (optional), pros and cons about the dish and finally would you recommend it to others.


NOTE: Multiple people can, and most-likely will, review the same dish. This is by design- the more opinions the better.

Restaurant: Pigs in a Kilt
Meal: Sampler
Price: About $8
Pros: Filling. Fries are what you are used to from Busch. Chicken fingers were well seasoned.
Cons: The corn dog is nothing like the others in the park- the one that comes with this particular meal is very lightly breaded.
Recommended: Yes

Hope it's okay to review desserts. Smiling

Restaurant: Smokehouse
Meal: Rib Sampler
Price: About $15
Pros: Everything. The size of the meal is massive- every time I've had it I've had to give almost half the meal to friends. The meal itself is delicious and they give you just about everything you could want to eat at the park.
Cons: The main con is obvious- the price. If you plan to get this meal, by all means, buy a meal ticket at the ticket window. Also, the first time I had it the chicken was a little under-seasoned, but it wasn't anything unbearable.
Recommended: Yes

Restaurant: Squire's Grill
Meal: Fish and Chips
Price: $10.38 (including small drink)
Pros: I was plesantly surprised at how good the fish is. It was firm and full of flavor. The fries (chips) were fresh and crispy.
Cons: They do cook it fresh while you wait, which could take some time, especially if its busy. Pick an off hour to eat.

7/9/11
Restaurant: Trappers
Meal: Smokehouse Sampler
Price: About $13 (Used a meal deal voucher)
Pros: About as close to a perfect meal as I've had there. Nothing was overdone. Got the dark meat chicken. Made a mini brisket sandwich with the roll. Ribs wer big. Lemon cake is outstanding.
Cons: They don't trim the tips off the spare ribs, which I personally like, because you get MUCH more meat. But that meat is a bit tougher than the closer to the bone meat like baby backs or more closely trimmed spareribs.
Recommended: Yes, especially with a meal deal.
