Potato Patch Fries Production 

There are two lines to take the $ nowadays so no one handles cash and food. 

Your order comes up on a screen. I’ve no idea how they keep it straight. 

A team of teenagers orchestrate the production and it’s efficient. 

Fast furious pace behind the counter.  Everyone knows their part. 

Fries spilling over the paper tray’s edge. 

A ladle of “cheese” and bacon bits for some. 

We had seasoned salt and tiny cup cheese on the side. The word tiny is a poor one for this post, a small plastic cup. Think stadium nachos. Add ketchup.  Napkins. 

 We shared. 

I asked a couple if I could photograph their bacon and cheese fries.   
   

    
    

    
    
   

  

  

  

  

  

Potato Patch Satisfies Urge for Salt and Fat

Photographed at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin PA when the family was here this summer.

A nice couple let me photograph their fries. (with cheese)

The condiments still-life was from a different concession- The colors are what caught my eye.

And my son pointed out the pile of Idaho potatoes, catching the late day light.

The family was waiting to ride the Turtle.
