Six Flags Over Georgia not only serves up family fun but also dishes out a smorgasbord of food options. When hunger strikes, guests have 28 different restaurants from which to choose. From pepperoni pizza to pulled pork, Mexican favorites to Chinese cuisine, selections span the park and cover the globe in their variety. Making a choice for the family can be daunting, so for some insider tips on the best places for kids and adults to dine together, we asked our guests to tell us their favorite in-park places to eat with the entire family.
Searching to please everyone
A consistently cited top family choice is Johnny Rockets Express, in the British section of the park. "The best selection of family-friendly favorites you know you'll love – and a great place to chill out and recharge,” says Tom M. from Monroe. Princess B., a grandparent from Atlanta, sums it up simply: “Versatility and fun.” Suzy P., a mom from Douglasville, notes that "the service is quick and the food is good.” Charcle G., a mom from Hunter, appreciates the ambiance. “I love to see the staff dance around the restaurant to the rhythm of the music.” Antonio P. from Atlanta agrees. “The employees really know how to brighten your day.” Denise G. from Kennesaw likes the view. “We enjoy the large windows,” she says. “The kids look at the park, planning the order of rides to get on once they’re finished eating.”
Chandra B. from Eastman appreciates the pulled pork and ribs at Daddy O’s. “Finger-licking great!” she says. Andy H. from Lawrenceville cites Daddy O’s for its "good selection and filling choices.“ James B. from Atlanta agrees. “Most preferred options in one place.”
For those craving Chinese food, Panda Express is the place to go. "We get the best value for our dollar, and everyone leaves full and ready for a few more hours of riding,” says Lois F. from Powder Springs. Las Banderas is touted for its Mexican specialties: "Best bang for the buck,” reports Zak J. from Chattanooga, TN. “They load the plate down with rice, beans, and meat, while the customer service is superb."
Grabbing a bite between the rides
Cotton States Food Court also garners praises for its variety. “All the kids’ favorites, plus desserts – all in one place,” says Scott W. from Jacksonville, FL. “You can grab some quick, filling food while enjoying family togetherness,” notes Anslesia L. from Jackson, MS. "Nothing like a nice all-beef chili cheese dog and a nice order of fries between thrill rides,” notes Corey L., a dad from Riverdale. “Great tenders,” adds John H., a dad from Conyers.
Guests mention Big Mo’s On The Square for its variety, location, and service. Says J. Moody, a mom from Augusta. “There's never a fuss about what to eat because the food my children love is all there." “It's really easy to find, and the employees are very nice,” reports James H., a dad from Dacula. “It’s also a great place for the family to meet back up and enjoy some food."
Primo’s Lickskillet Pizzeria is sought after not only for its pizza, but its prime location. "It’s in the center of the park with a lot of seating,” says Mike E. from Kennesaw. Jeremy L. from Dawsonville agrees. "My family likes this area of the park a lot. It’s close to the rides and the things our six-year-old wants to do.”
For other guests, Dee Jay’s in the park’s USA section is all the rage. “The diner literally rocks! It’s is a fun place to take a break and grab a bite,” says Angie G., a mom from Griffin. “It’s the classic American diner with neon lights. Just a happy place to be,” says Fred J. from Phenix City, AL. “Burgers and fries are always a hit!” notes Tonia E., a mom from Jonesboro. “The portions area nicely sized,” adds Yvonne P., a mom from Riverdale.
Tonette E. from Lithonia doesn’t want Hickory Chip to go unmentioned. “Quick, filling, portable, hot” she says. Ronald E., a dad from Perez, notes the turkey legs are “HUGE!!,” and Danielle C. from Birmingham, AL agrees. “They are big enough to share among a family of four.”
Calming a sweet tooth
For guests with sweet cravings, Ben & Jerry’s, in the Georgia and French sections, is the best pick. "Perfect experience.” says Constance H., a mom from LaGrange. Jaz I., a teen from Douglas, GA, echoes the vote: “Sooooooooooooo good!,” she tells us. Other guests give the nod to Cold Stone Limited, in the Gotham City and Lickskillet sections, for which Vivian D., a teen from Queens, NY, has just one word: “amazing.” Still others head straight for Hometown Funnel Cakes, also in the Lickskillet section. Sandra E. from Austell provides a thorough review: "The funnel cakes are the best, with fruit toppings and a bottled water. I love the apple topping, and being a little bit of a health nut, I get a fast carb and a slow carb that are tasty, filling, and don't weigh heavy on my stomach." Adds Johnnie P. a dad from Oklahoma, “Best place to calm a sweet tooth – and find a cool drink and a bench to sit on.”
