Just how is Knott's fried chicken?

It's the biggest fried chicken restaurant in the U.S.....

  1. its SOOOO good, i am in pasadena, and i remember my parents used to drive the family just to get the chicken. yummie.......

      1. Before I turned to the dark side (vegetarianism), I took my 2 neices (ages 10 and 13) and we were all pretty disappointed. We found it odd that all 3 dishes (different menu items) pretty much tasted the same and that the plates were plastic. The only outstanding item was the boysenberry sherbert. The deaf waitstaff was pretty hilarious too.

        1. It depends.

          If you're coming from the point of view of mama's home-fried chicken with greens 'n black-eyed peas, it's pretty terrible.

          If you're coming from the point of view of a theme park and its overprocessed, never-quite-warm-enough food, it's fantastic.

          Let's leave it that I make a trip very, very occasionally to go -- but I only live 10 minutes away.

          1. I ask for dark meat only and I think it's pretty good. I like it with a side of gravy.
