In 2016.... If I remember right it was just a Weekend thing (not sure if Friday was included in that).


I talked to Chef Chris the other day and he said it will be 16 days straight. There will be 6 samples for 25 dollars and then most everything else will be meals on the dining plan, some of the things are Frog Legs and Fries and Pimento Cheese Burger.


Thanks carolinaman.

How much is a sample?
Will it be like in 2016 were you got about (2 or 3 ribs) along with a small side item?

Cool.... Thanks for the link.... I would never I found it otherwise.

If you have any pull out there I would suggest Carowinds to hand out leaflets at all the Gates.....Would make it easier to understand whats it out there & where especially if you have kids.

1.) Menus & Location for the (6) tasting sites .
2.) Menu for the Items that will be at other Locations...... Harmony Hall, Winds, County Fair Fries, Harbor House,...etc..... (Most of these will be on the Dining Plans).

Burrito Cafe will stuff you and you will still have food left over. Luigi's Pizza is where you will find the Italian Sub and the chicken parmesan.

Reviews:

Patty Melt at Juke Box is the best item there if you ask me. Nicely toasted, burger is not dry, and the cheese is melted perfectly. I always add a tomato ...PERFECT.

Chicken Parm from Luigi's to me was dry. It didn't have enough sauce for me and I had to ask for extra sauce. Not a fan.

The Brisket bacon cheeseburger from wings is ok. Needs more bbq sauce if you ask me. They changed the wings back to regular fried wings with a special sauce on the side. It's my go to most of the time.

The meatball bowl from the italian stand in Harmony Hall is rather filling. You get about four big meatballs in a bread bowl which is sure to fill you up.

I'm not sure if the Burrito Cafe is open during the weekdays or not. Hope to find out this coming week if my plans for follow through.... The one time I did try to go there they were just shutting down for the day so they are not open all day long.

I will have to try the Patty Melt at Juke Box then... I had thought all the Burgers were the same throughout the park.... In 2016 the Burgers really good at Sharkey's. Seem to be from fresh meat/not frozen. The last 2 years there still good but not like they use to be.

Definitely have to try the Meatball Bowl especially if we can only get one meal in.

Found out for Myself that the Funnel Cakes are on the Dining Plans at County Fair.

NOT sure if they are on the Dining Plans at other areas.

Great snack to end the day.

I agree... Good but I have had better..... But .... Ok for an amusement park that doesn't serve them year around.

The youngest one wouldn't try it..... So..... I slipped a small piece in with a French Fry..... After I told him he laugh & started jumping around like a Frog for the rest of the day.
