Excellent Fried Chicken Dinner!

This place is everything you have ever hoped...and MORE! First of all, the waitstaff is no joke. They know how to work the room. Even if they are packed to the rafters, never fear...they WILL get you in and fed in short order. If you really want to try what this place is known for...and who else... read more

The food was great but there were limited menu options (which wasn't really a problem for us but may be for some). The helping were huge so we couldn't finish and we had nowhere to save the leftovers. You can easily share each meal with 2 people.

Chicken dinner was ok I guess. Overpriced for what it was and 1 dinner adequatly fed the two of us. Everyone I saw leaving had a doggy bag.

My husband was really looking forward to this as part of our first trip to Knotts Berry Farm. The dinner that STARTED this place so long ago and started a mini-empire must be good, right? The reality was disappointing for me and left him completely crestfallen. The soup was soft mushy noodles in a thick slop. The "mixed greens" salad... More

There's a novelty to the reataurant simply because it's so old and has a million Knott's Berry Farm memories, but as for the chicken, it's okay at best. Then again, my parents love it and go regularly. So, I guess the review is that you either love it or hate it.
