Default Food changes

While we tend to remember the old days fondly overall, I must say that I do prefer the food these days much better, burgers at least. When I used to come to the park as a youth in the '70's, burgers were in foil wrappers and being kept warm for who-knows-how-long. Nothing was on the burger, but you could ask for a packet of mustard or ketchup. Lettuce, tomatoes, etc were virtually unheard of. Dry Hole Charlie's was better at least. Places like Naler's or El Chico were still better food choices than most.

The only thing that I don't prefer now are the food prices....

I remember Dry Hole as being pretty good, although I took most of my meals at Ma Snookers just because it was so close. It was that or a candy bar & Dr. Pepper down in the games warehouse.

Post On the menu

I have few SFOT food memories, mostly because I brown-bagged a lot.

However, I do remember buying reuben sandwiches at the old canteen. And for a while, my standard 15-minute-break snack was the frozen yogurt from the stand near Dixie Belle's.

Little Sausage House - Mmmm kraut.
Colonel's - BBQ Sammiches.
Dry Hole Charlies - Burgers...better quality meat there.
Mexico - The big mexican restaurant - Employee special!

Back then you'd get a discount at some places. Drinks were always 16cents for a medium. I don't think employees today get as much discount.

I remember Ma Snookers as having big pizza slices and some excellent heated sub sandwiches. The subs were piled with meat and cheese and it was definitely a task to get one's mouth around it. As i recall we didn't get a discount so I ate there sparingly.

When did Colonel's have BBQ? I worked there during my 1st run. All I remember that place having was chicken fried steak, salad, and fries with cream gravy. (I blame my gut now on that place then!)
This year we don't get any discount at food places that are outside vendors like Panda Express, Johnny Rockets, etc. I think we get 45 percent off at the others though. We always hit Gator's when we go. You still get a good burger with a fresh fixin's bar. Not to mention the shear size of the swamp burger meal. Plus, it's the last place in the park that serves PB&J kids meals!

True, at Gator's you could practically make a free big sidesalad from the burger bar after your burger was fixed up. Just a helpful tip from Cheapskate 101...
