Maggie’s Famous Fried Chicken Gets a Facelift
Headlining the new park food offerings for 2017 is an exciting addition to Great America’s most familiar food location. Maggie Brown’s Famous Fried Chicken will become Maggie’s Smokehouse and Fried Chicken. But don’t worry – the restaurant’s namesake fried chicken will still be a staple. Now, though, there will be a host of new favorites joining the menu. Smoked tri-tip and pulled pork will also be served daily – the smells of which are sure to guide guests into the restaurant when they’re cooking in the smoker.
Besides new BBQ favorites, Maggie’s will be adding to its chicken options with rotisserie chicken and a unique Kick’n Chicken Sandwich that features Maggie’s long-adored fried chicken. Smokehouse beans will also be offered up in 2017 as a side option to pair with these lip-smacking dining options.
Plus, if the barbeque enthusiast needs more reasons to be excited, Great America’s chef and food experts have additional surprises in store. On select dates, both beef and pork ribs will surprise and delight foodies.
Food Fair’s Growing Menu
While Maggie’s Smokehouse and Fried Chicken will likely grab the headlines, there is much more planned for 2017 from Great America’s food team. Seafood lovers will rejoice for two on-the-go favorites joining the lineup in 2017. A classic lobster roll sandwich, plus a crab sandwich, will be ready at Food Festival every day.
