“It all started with food! Knott’s Berry Farm theme park would not be here today if it were not for the Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant. After Walter Knott found that farming alone was not going to make ends meet when feeding a family of six, he asked his wife Cordelia if she wouldn’t mind serving her famous fried chicken to visitors stopping at the berry stand. The rest is history!”
The fried chicken and boysenberry pie have been staples of my childhood. The chicken always juicy and delicious, and the pie never holding back on fantastic fruit flavor. Knotts seems to be making an effort to stay afloat in their dining selections, but their roots remain king. The BBQ ribs were a new addition to the delightfully delicious category, so keep your eyes peeled for that on your next visit. Here are some pics to hold you over till you visit.
