Remember “back in the day” when everyone raved about Mrs. Knott’s fried chicken over at Knott’s Berry Farm? It used to be the gold standard for down-home theme park food that tasted like it came from Grandma’s kitchen. Not anymore. Somewhere along the way, maybe when Cedar Fair purchased the park, Knott’s lost it’s quality commitment to juicy, delicious chicken.
- The chicken dinner costs $13.99 and comes with four pieces of chicken. Kids meals are $7.50 and only come with a small portion of food. If you have two children, I suggest having the kids split one adult dinner. Just ask for an extra plate. During our last visit, my husband, our three boys and I split two adult dinners among us and were full. (We did have a few snacks for our toddler, but could have easily fed all of us.) Of course we saved room for a churro dessert a little later.
- Another option is to purchase one dinner and then order other items ala carte. Suz and I did that over the summer. We ordered one chicken dinner and then ordered a dinner without the chicken since we knew that neither of us could possibly eat four pieces of chicken.
- Order a drink! There’s free refills and then before heading out of the restaurant, ask for a to-go cup. You can fill it and take it with you. That’s a definite bonus!
- Consider an early dinner around 5 or 5:30 in the evening for the shortest wait.
