Thirsty pony @ cedar corner
After a waterlogged weekend at Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark in Sandusky, Ohio, we needed some grub before making the trek back to Columbus and decided to stop at the hard to miss Thirsty Pony.
Pizza, Wings, Sports and fun all in one place! This restaurant is part of a massive entertainment complex that includes Cedar Lanes Bowling Alley, Laser Tag, Rain Indoor Waterpark (currently closed), Cedar Downs Horse Racing and Holiday Inn and Suites. There is literally something for everyone in the family here and while very tempting, we decided to strictly stay for the food.
A very festive atmosphere with over 20 Tv's around, the kids attention was definitely had while we waited for our food. Mj and Scoop chose a large half Pepperoni half Chicken pizza, Chips ordered Mac and Cheese, Munchie wanted Chicken Tenders, Mom went for a large Pepperoni Pizza and I opted for an order of Famous Frickers Wings!
Sadly the Thirsty Pony does not offer free kids meals with an adult purchase as it isn't an actual Frickers restaurant (sucks for us LOL), but on the positive side, all Large Pizzas with upto 3 toppings are $9.99! (seasonal, so call ahead prior)
The kids loved the Pizza with just the right balance of cheese and toppings with just enough grease to make it a legit pie. Scoop said it's the best she's ever had and Chipmunk didn't believe her, so she snatched a piece while she wasn't looking.
My wings were just how I like them from these establishments, a balance between grese, breading and sauce. Now if I was on a diet (me on a diet, now that's a novel idea LOL), I would have probably went for something else, but i'm not and this is part bar so these were par for the course! They did taste a little different from what i've had in traditional Frickers restaurants, but in this case it wasn't a bad thing.
Overall the kids were happy and we ended up with enough leftovers between the Pizza and Mac and Cheese to have Dinner later on without cooking!
If you stop by, make sure to text "THIRSTY" to 57711 and save 15% off your bill! Sadly, we didn't see this until AFTER paying the bill. The damage? 2 Large Pizza's, 10 Wings, 4 Drinks, 1 Kids Meal, 1 Side of Fries and 1 Mac and Cheese: $58.94... The only justification I have is that we will now make 2 meals out of this.
