Just like it was when I was a kid. Loved the chicken legs....garden salad was really basic. Little bread rolls were awesome. Serves beer.

This is a good old fashioned family restaurant which has not changed much since my earliest memories of it when I was a small child. The food is always consistent. We always get Mrs. Knott's chicken dinner. This is not fancy food but it is delicious and super filling. The chicken dinner is also available to go at the separate... More

I had the chicken dinner, I ate at this restaurant when i was a child and it brought back some wonderful memories, eating here again as an adult. I purchased 2 whole pies to bring home. The Boysenberry pie was the best I have eaten. I also purchased a peach pie and it was very good. The chicken and mash... More

One of my favorite Fried Chicken spots, you can't really beat the value either. You get so much food. Only downfall is really doesn't taste well the next day. The chicken is so crispy, not too oily. The biscuits with boysenberry jam? the soup. and PIE for dessert!.

We eat here every year for my relative's birthday. The rest of the guests gushed about the chicken, and how full they got on the rest of the meal, which they very much liked. I liked the biscuits just fine. And the salad was fresher than last visit, so I was glad to see that. Also enjoyed the iced tea... More

Go for the chicken dinner here. Excellent food: my wife had the chicken and dumplings but the chicken was the overall choice. You definitely will not go away hungry.

Came here for mothers day and the place was slammed, Waited for 45 minutes. We had a party of 10. But guess what the chicken dinner is worth the wait. Portions are big and the food is good. Was 19.99 per person and it came with soup, biscuits, salad, corn ,mashed potatoes, chicken and dessert. Service was excellent. Can't wait... More

We made reservations for our group of 40 family members. The restaurant didn't want to make individual checks, and it had to be a fixed menu. The food was great, but the service was poor. My daughter had to show them how to ring up the checks!!!!!! Next time we will take out group somewhere else. The day before the... More

We had seen a few TV shows with clips of this place and figured we would check it out. Coming from the land of fried things, maybe my expectations were a little to high. Service was pleasant enough but the chicken could not live up to the hype. The price had the typical tourist markup. If you need a quick... More
