"Do you have lettuce, tomatoes and pickles?"

Kinda resembles the conversation with Butthead when he worked at Burger World...
Just check out the older maps posted here and you can prolly find those joints.

Default Just raise the flag if you need more tea....?

It's looks like the old mexican resturant is going to be a Pancho's next year. The building was open very briefly this season but I never got in to see what was up.

Good lord.. Panchos...

I don't know why, but that was always a favorite lunch spot during work crew. But every time we went, we were bloated and miserable for the last half of the shift.

I remember in high school, they cut off service to a group of Grand Prairie football players. Seems they were eating too much. I haven't been to a Pancho's in years, but it was alright. I'd eat there again.

The year that Six Flags took over operation of Fiesta Texas from Gaylord, they opened a mexican all-u-can-eat buffet in the park. Kinda curious as to whether it was a success, failure, or what...knowing corporate, it was probably "all you can eat for $19.99".

Somehow, all-you-can-eat at an amusement park just seems wrong. I mean, you've got a belly full of enchiladas, rice, beans & sopapillas. Then, you go out into the 100+ degree heat, ride some roller coasters, some spinning rides. Sounds like a recipe for disaster - disastrous cleanup, that is.

Default yuck

The food now is awful! Just to let you guys know... maybe someone who has some pull reads these things. Johnny Rockets should be called Johnny Vomits! Resembles those cafeteria hamburgers we got in school. At 10.00 bucks a pop!

You should go to Dollywood and eat at Granny's...it's a coutry/southern style buffet and quite possibly the best theme park food in the world...I could barely move for an hour or so after we ate and didn't attempt any big rides for several hours...I was sad that I couldn't go last time I was in TN

I would love for Six Flags to get a place like that, but they would prob fill it with cheap/bland food and way overprice it, which is why I'm sure their looking to bring Panchos in
