Pork At The Park
Pulled Pork on a Ciabatta Bun
Dexter's Deli - Knoebels - Elysburg, PA
Amusement parks have their own version of the Oscars and the Grammy Awards. It's called the Golden Ticket Awards. Knoebels won the Golden Ticket for the amusement park with the best food 16 times since the year 2000, and it is well deserved. We ordered a pulled pork sandwich, a Memphis Pork Barbecue, an order of deep fried broccoli and cauliflower and rice pudding with cinnamon and whipped cream. All of it was delicious, and it clocked in at less than twenty dollars. That's not a bad price for a roadside diner, let alone an amusement park. You could have a full meal at Knoebels for less than the cost of a soda at most places.
By the way, Knoebels also has free parking and free admission, and in addition to the reasonably priced food, everything else in the park is very affordable, from the rides to souvenirs. The family that runs this place are outstanding human beings who run a very successful and fun park that is approaching its 100th anniversary, and they do so without squeezing every last dime out of your pocket.
