When going to Lake Compounce earlier this year we found a great local Mexican Restaurant one exit up on rt. 84 in Stonington (Queen St, sorry, I don't know the exit number). There are a ton of chain restaurants including Bertuccis, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Moes, but we decided to head to Puerto Vallarta. It was a great Mexican place with awesome food, and amazing drinks and despite only 3 stars on Yelp, it was beyond delicious. Only downside is that it's 2 hours from my house :(. http://www.puertovallartausa.com

Oh, and if you're looking for more good eating in Pittsburgh outside Kennywood, be sure to hit Primanti Bros. downtown. Excellent, loaded sandwiches. =)

I'll have red wine with my slice of donkey.

Last time I was at Cedar Point, I discovered Famous Dave's Barbeque, outside the gate at the Marina.
The food was AMAZING, and there were great Marqaritas too!

I do like Famous Dave's, especially all their sauces, but that is a big chain company. Great place though!

Yes, Famous Dave's doesn't quite qualify for this thread (but their food isn't bad).

Six Flags Great Adventure has a lot of crap dining in its immediate surroundings (Tommy's, next to KFC, is way overpriced and serves awful food, IMO), but for anyone interested in non-fast food eats, drive down Rte 537 past Six Flags, away from I-195 towards Mt Holly. I highly recommend the Plumstead Grill, located near the 537/539 intersection, just under 10 minutes past the park. Great food everytime I eat there for very reasonable prices!

I might try this place one today. I usually head in the other directions towards Route 9 and have stopped to meet friends at Escondido's in Freehold for food and drinks.

Has been said, but just want to say it is a huge chain.
