Cham Soot Gol was a really good Korean BBQ place I went to after the Knott's day of West Coast Bash last year. It's all you can eat meats and they bring you up to three kinds at a time and you cook it at your table. There's also ice cream included with every meal. It's reasonably priced for all the food you get, about $20 per person. It's open to Midnight or later and is on 8552 Beach Blvd just south of Knott's, literally a stone's throw away.

They include a bunch of Korean sides with every meal.

You get to pick three types/cuts of meat at a time, and when you finish it they'll bring you more. They give you tips on how to cook the meats and will assist you as needed so it's not intimidating.

They also have a few different Korean beers you can order.

I'm going to have to try that next time I'm there! I wonder how it compares to Gogi House near SFMM.

Dollywood - Smokies Cuban Cafe on the main drag close to Dollywood Lane. Ham croquettes were insane. Masitas de Puerco were also very good.

For Great Adventure, I enjoyed Pasquale's 3 Brothers pizza, just a couple miles south on Monmouth Rd. Have by the slice although I got a small and enjoyed the leftovers the next day too. Unfortunately I don't know of anything near other parks because I rarely spend more than $5 on a meal (Applebee's is definitely no problem if someone else is paying!).

For King's Dominion, there is a Guiseppe's 11 miles north at exit 110, OK, and the Rusty Beaver Brewery (haven't tried it, also not open late) in the next shopping center and a Mexican place (smelled good) and chains at exit 104, plus of course Ashland to the south. A useful thing to know about may be the commuter lot at exit 104, 5 miles north of the park, since I'd be wary of parking anywhere near the park. Head west over Rt. 1 and make an immediate right in front of the auto parts store.

Well outside Six Flags America, there's the usual fast food places . . . . and some IHOP's as well

I ask dumb questions.

El Ranchero Loco is located right outside Dollywood's parking lot entrance at 2902 Veterans Boulevard. Authentic Mexican, family run, great prices, fast service, wonderful flavor on their Carne Asada. I don't think this is a hidden gem since it is starting to get packed near 6pm.
