Great Parking, local vibe, right across watkins glen state park and it serves good tasting chicken. A meal will be something between 6-8$ per person. The that was served was roasted and yeah...its ok. quick service, love the slaw.

It was 95 degrees during the vintage car parade day at Watkins Glen this year. Combine that with 10000 people and all those cars! Our group arrived hot and hungry and Mr Chicken was the first place we came to. Deciding not to risk walking up town, to restaurants that were all full we headed inside. Not very glamorous. Arburite... More

Been going to the Glen for 25 years and this was first visit. Should have gone years ago. Took a chance that this chicken restaurant might have dogs and we were right. they were great.

For a little restaurant, the chicken was exdellent. Haven't tasted rotisserie chicken anywhere. I wish I had a Mr. Chicken in my neighborhood. Lunch was so good that... More

A great place to eat after hiking at Watkins Glen which is right across the street. The rotisserie chicken is great, and goes amazingly with their delicious mashed potatoes & gravy, and cabbage salad (coleslaw). Boyfriend had the tenders platter, which came with three tenders, fries, and two dipping sauces, which was a bit more average. However, the buffalo dipping... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Watkins Glen. The chicken is fresh and served in so many ways. The staff are great. This is an order at the counter and bring your food to a table place. The cole slaw is great, just ask for extra sauce when you order it. This is a very filling... More

Mr. Chicken is a great, local owned restaurant featuring rotisserie style chicken. The chicken & biscuit and gravy fries are awesome. Great dessert selections too. Highly recommend.

The food is ok, nothing special, a bit pricy for what you get. Biggest inconvenience is that they do not accept credit or debit cards. They do have an ATM inside but both times I was there is was out of service.

Ate here 2 out of 3 days during an event at the race track. The chicken is good and the lunch was a good value. It's a quick in and out lunch place and a good alternative to the usual fast food place.
