Mariano's, my all-time favorite Mexican restaurant, is located right down the street from Six Flags Over Texas. Their fire-roasted salsa is delicious! Definitely worth a try.

I was recently at Hershey Park and found a gem of a restaurant nearby. It's probably about 7 minutes away from the park and has some very tasty pizza. It is small and it was hard to find some parking but it was delicious.

Palermo's Pizza

^Funny you should mention that. I was just at Palermo's and will second the recommendation! Would it be too much to say I even miss it a little? Maybe I am just missing Hersheypark and the whole trip.

This is not your typical pizza if you're used to chains!

After a day at KI, check out Blue Ash Chili on Western Row. Famous for the "Cincinnati Chili" style with 3,4,5 and 6 ways. Also have a lot of really good sandwiches. If you're really hungry try the double decker with your choice of meats and cheeses. Great place to eat!! Head south on Kings Island Drive, take a right on Western Row, and will be on your right after you go under 71 in a little shopping center with a Donatos and Penn Station. Also, for a little further drive, check out Marion's Pizza a little down 71 on Mason-Montgomery Rd. Awesome pizza!!
Who was that again?

I always check Yelp for great restaurants when I am traveling and Yelp doesn't disappoint 90% of the time. I have a laundry list of restaurants to try in the LA area from watching various TV shows like Anthony Bourdain No Reservations/The Layover/Parts Unknown and Man vs Food and reading food blogs like Zagat. When I go to West Coast Bash I'm thinking of going to Little Tokyo in LA after SFMM on the drive down to Knott's since its near the 5 Fwy and hitting up the famed Daikokuya which is on my list of places to try and is open late. Good thread by the way Chuck.

Speaking of Cookout, they've opened one on Richmond Road in Williamsburg (which is "tourist central" here when it comes to hotels). It is a very good burger joint, indeed.

I second this suggestion. I went to Blue Ash Chili when I visited KI last month and the food was very delicious. I recommend either the 6-way chili (spaghetti, chili, onion, beans, cheese, and fried jalapeno nuggets) or their Philly Chili, a Philly cheesesteak smothered in chili (top-quality beef used, I might add).

They were featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, so a quick Youtube search will pull up the video for more.

Nicky's Pizza near Six Flags New England is amazing. The owner is incredibly friendly and the pizzas there are massive (and massive is an understatement as one large fed my 4 hungry friends and I with leftovers) and delicious.

Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Iron Rattler, Skyrush

I want to throw in a 3rd recommendation for Palermo's near Hershey. I went last year, and the pizza and pasta I got were both fantastic!
