Do You Like Chicken?

The place specializes in chicken and they do it well. If you like chicken, it is worth checking out. Prices are reasonable.

This very unassuming Chicken restaurant a block south of the State park entrance has superb chicken with gravy. No dieters allowed though!

This location is a great place to get a very good chicken dinner at a low price and, what was attractive to us, we could use the outside patio with out dog. The facility is in rough shape but it is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the food is grerat.

This is a must-go place in Watkins Glen. If you haven't been here you are missing out. I've never had a bad meal here. Service is prompt and orders are always correct. Food is cooked to order and always hot and fresh. I highly recommend the chicken barbecue sandwich, coleslaw and french fries with gravy!

Mr. Chicken has been around for as long as I can remember (30+ years) and that doesn't happen if you're not serving up great food. The chicken is always very good, and don't forget the homemade cabbage salad. They have a decent-sized menu with other choices, and their desserts look great. I've always been filled up by my dinner and... More

The chicken & biscuits were served with instant mashed potatoes & there was way too much gravy. My husband equated it to cafeteria food. We also had the homemade pecan pie which was pretty good & redeemed the restaurant a bit.

Really good, cheap food. Ordering was kind of difficult since we had never been and nobody told us what to do. We enjoyed our food - a BBQ ham sandwich, fish & chips and a burger.

Was afraid it was a fried chicken place, but it's rotisserie chicken, and pretty good. Good sides, lots of choices, and do a brisk business. Good place.

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 for... More
