There are an abundance of places to eat at Knoebels. Knoebels is known for its variety of comfort foods and reasonable prices. The International Food court has the most options in one place. However, many consider Cesari's Pizza to be the highest quality option. Close to Cesari's Pizza is a Pierogie (potato dumplings) and Tri-Tater stand favored by many locals. Other unique delicacies found throughout the park are frozen sweet tea, fried cheese on a stick, and boneless BBQ sandwiches. Every food stall is unique, so explore.
