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.

We always eat at Mr. Chicken when visiting Watkins Glen. The chicken is very tasty. The service is very fast and the prices are very reasonable.

A real mom and pop restaurant with chicken, any way you like. They make their own buffalo sauce and it is awfully spicy (I was warned!). The coconut creme pie was to die for.

A long time standard in WG for racers and tourists. Not fancy, no big menu, no credit cards. Just a nice chicken meal served politely and quickly.

The chicken is greasy as are the sides. I felt ill after eating here. Nice location for such a poor eatery.

There are many bad reviews for this place, but in the 15+ years I've been coming here, I've never been disappointed. Chicken is always great. In fact, while my family often likes going to the park, I enjoy the trip to Watkins for Mr Chicken

My husband, myself and our 3 boys ate here. Its a chicken place so I ordered the chicken pot pie. Gross! It had been frozen (can't believe it was homemade) then microwaved making it soggy.

Good chicken and the best chicken sandwiches with the relish. A must stop going through Watkins Glen.
