We ordered the whole chicken with fries, potato salad and 2 sodas. We enjoyed everything. They did give us dinner rolls, but they tasted a little stale. It is cash only and there is an ATM next to the register.

We stopped at Mr. Chicken after hiking down the park. The wait staff was polite and explained the menu to us. The food was so good, we had no leftovers. The prices were very reasonable.

I always go to Mr Chicken when I visit my family. The chicken sandwiches are simple and terrific. One improvement would be for the customer to be given a copy of the bill. Currently the order takers do it on the order slip and only give you a total - one both of my visits this past weekend I was... More

My son and I enjoyed a Texas add of and cheeseburger. Food was made fresh and was delicious. Would love to return to try chicken dinner. Pies looked great too.

Tasty chicken, awesome gravy fries! Price is decent, they don't take cards, so have cash. Even when busy, food cones out quickly

Very tasty chicken in the true Upstate NY style of marinated oil and vinegar-based marinade. As good as the chicken was, the cabbage salad stole the show. Very delicioius!

Every few years, when I'm in the area to drive at Watkins Glen, I get a hankering for chicken and decide to give Mr. Chicken another chance, despite past disappointments. I must be the textbook example of insanity -- hoping for a different outcome. The chicken was dry and salty. And if you want a whole chicken, but would like... More

Have patronized Mr. Chicken for years. Always consistently good food, and a family friendly price. Chicken sandwiches are yummy, as is pretty much everything. If your looking for comfort food this is it.
