I love Mrs Knotts chicken dinners with all the trimmings,only $17.99(USD).We are a family from the Gold Coast in Australia & whenever we are in the area of Buena Park we have to visit Mrs Knotts.The service is great,the food is delicious and plenty of it for the price.

Very good food and service. Tastes like home cooking. Very generous portions. Variety to choose from, but I always get the chicken dinner.

Best dinner and wonderful service. We were overcharged on our package deal at the Knott's Resort so they hooked us up with a VIP reservation.

I eagerly wanted to visit this restaurant with my family of five. Although I rarely eat fried chicken, I thought it might be worth a visit for some home cooked southern style fried chicken. The portions are WAY too much for a typical eater. The biscuits were served warm and they were delicious, however, they don't need to serve you... More

Chicken dinner meals were $18 per person and came with 4 pieces of chicken, mashed potatos, side, biscuits and dessert. Only problem we found was the meal was... More

Having grown up in Southern California I had many opportunities to enjoy Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant. In the 60's & 70's as a child with my family, in the 80's with my wife, and in the 90's with our children. There is no better place to find comfort food. Located near the entrance of Knott's Berry Farm, Mrs. Knott's... More
