Yesterday my family and I went to Knott's Berry Farms with some friends to kick off spring break in style. Around lunch time, I talked everyone into eating at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner. That was one decision I would later regret. I had eaten there many times in the past and totally loved the chicken dinners. This time, the chicken was dry and everything was tasteless. We put plenty of salt, pepper and tobasco sauce on the chicken to give it some flavor. The biggest sign of displeasure came from my son who is a chicken strip junkie. He said "I would rather have chicken strips from Jack in the Box". The staff was nice and the manager was very apologetic. The manager informed us that the chicken comes ready made from an outside company pre breaded and seasoned. Don't get me wrong, many people like the food. We didn't care for it. KFC and Popeye's chicken is much better and more affordable. I hope Mrs. Knott's can get back to their roots and make chicken the way they used to make it. P.S. the pie and biscuits were very good.

Well we woke up at 6am this morning because the restaurant opens at 7. Since so many people talk about this place we thought there would be a long line. We were the 1st ones there. Of coarse I wanted the chicken and my wife wanted the country fried steak. I was kinda disappointed because the chicken was not what I was hoping for. It's nothing spectacular. It's just chicken. Popeyes or churches is way better. My wife liked the country fried steak breakfast. She's from Bakersfield and knows what country food tastes like. But I loved the biscuits. It was soft and doughey. If my wife wants to go back I'll try something different.

I have been coming here for years, and it was always the best!!! I have many great memories of this place and also the food- fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, etc. But, the last few times I've come, the quality of the food has become very poor. The chicken is very dry and no longer has its famous flavor- they must have changed the recipe and are using cheaper products. The portions have become skimpier, but the prices have shot up! This is very disappointing to former fans of this place!

Cons: Not like it used to be!

When I was a kid, my mom would take me here. We always enjoyed their breakfast, even though we had to wait in line for a long time. Dinner was usually good and a good value.

Recently, I tried their dinner one night and was totally surprised with the terrible quality. The chicken was dry. The salad was wilted. Their famous boysenberry pie didn't taste very good. The meal was also pretty expensive, too. What happened to getting a lot for your dollar here?

I tried it again two weeks later, this time bringing my parents. Perhaps it was a fluke that food was bad before. This time, it was worse. The service from the hostesses to our server was mediocre.

I hope that Cedar Fair takes a look at what made this place great, because I'm not going back.

If you want a home style cooking meal, definitely come here. The fried chicken is great. But my ultimate favorite thing here is their Boysenberry Pie for dessert. It's wonderful.

Best chicken dinner for your money. The cooked rhubard is especially good. The quality remains very much the same as it's been for many years. Great family place to eat.

Mrs Knott's Chicken Dinner has been a staple of Knott's for as long as I can remember. The chicken here is deeelicious, no joke you can quote me on that. The only thing that is kind of bad are the lines, which get quite long. But it is worth the wait if you can control your stomach cravings. The service is great and I'd recommend this to anyone who is visiting Knott's Berry Farm, or just wants a filling and tasty dinner on any day of the week.

Editorial from

You don't have to go into the theme park to enjoy a meal at this OC landmark. The place sits just outside Knott's Berry Farm by the main entrance. The chicken, biscuits, boysenberry pie and old-time sides such as rhubarb and corn are…
