I Love Mr Chicken

Whenever I get back home, I make sure that I have a meal from Mr Chicken. I love their chicken and they have the best potato salad. They also have luscious desserts. The locals all go here so that is a pretty good clue that the food will be good and affordable. Nothing fancy, just a lot of choices... read more

The food is good and we go here every time we stop or stay in Watkins Glen, and we've been going here for years (and remember that it's impolite to ask a lady an age, so you know it must be good if my family has been coming back all of these years). My only complaint was they recently screwed... More

We visit Watkins Glen once a year and we make sure to eat at Mr.Chicken every time! It's not fancy but the food is wonderful. The pies are homemade and wonderful as well.

Mr. Chicken is just across from the Watkins Glen Gorge Franklin St enterance. They offer quick chicken foods from "fingers" to dinners at counter service. Chicken by the bucket (warm or cold) is available and the salads and sides are very good> They also offer many other choices such as hot dogs, assorted sandwiches, and excellent choices of homemade pies....

Place looks a bit run down, but service was fast and friendly,and the chicken was very good. Was a little nervous when I first walked in ,but it smelled so good I had to try it. I'm glad I did.

Judge the book by its cover. Old, not very clean, unenthused staff. Chicken was okay...mashed potatoes not good.

Do not drive by! The portions were generous. The gravy was delicious. Fortunately for my waistline we were not back by here again! Three of us had the chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and we were not able to eat it all! Delicious.

Sad to say... But just ok. I have been coming here all my life. Every summer we hit Mr. Chicken. This summer it was a huge disappointment. The chicken was really dry, the side items were very expensive and it was not a good experience overall. Sure we'll give it another chance but it will be a while before we... More

Great little place with a delicious chicken barbecue. Prices are right where they should be, plenty of parking, and conveniently located right on the main drag, only about a mile from beautiful Seneca Lake. Can get really busy in the summer, as Watkins Glen hosts a bunch of festivals during the warmer months, as well as the NASCAR race each... More
