^ yep , it is a bit of a drive, more of a side trip. But yes, I agree, there is some fantastic food at the docks.

Mel's Hot Dogs, just outside Busch Gardens Tampa at 4136 E. Busch Blvd. Tampa, FL 33617. http://www.melshotdogs.com/

It was a 7 minute walk from the park entrance. Founded by a native of Chicago over 40 years ago after he realized he couldn't get an authentic Chicago style Vienna Beef hot dog in Tampa. He he started importing hot dogs from Chicago himself.

Personally I still prefer the tinge of garlic in New York hot dogs, but it was certainly worth the stop. A little over $10 total for the meal I bought.

Right beside California's Great America is an IHOP which is attached to a hotel. The IHOP is very reasonable, and is a great place to eat breakfast before entering the park.

Really? If your going to eat at a megachain you might as well go to the Krispy Kreme around the corner from Great America Parkway on Mission College Blvd. You won't get stuffed to the brink on mediocre food that might make you throw up on one of the rides. And if you live in SF then just eat at one of the many great cafes there before coming to CGA.

Sigh . . .

From the "ground rules" for this thread:

2. Remember that this must be a locally owned restaurant--no big chains.


I would call IHOP a "big chain."

Pigeon Forge is known for pancake houses and kitsch, but if you are looking for something completely different, I found Smokies Cuban Cafe. It's on the southbound side of the main Parkway, about a mile from the park. A little piece of Havana (or Miami) in eastern Tennessee, and I thought it was fantastic.

This fits since its technically not on the piers and its a local business. I may have posted it in here a while back but I'll post it again because I eat it when I'm not even hungry. Its hard for me to pass it and not stop.

If you are in Wildwood/at Moreys and want the best slice is pizza in the tri-state area, BEHOLD. They put butter in the cheese and it makes for the greasiest YET most delicious freaking pie I've ever had in my life.
