Three of us went to Mr. Chicken, after learning that is would be closing (permanently). The chicken was good, but I found that the white meat was a bit dry, to my liking. I ordered the chicken dinner which came with fries and cole slaw,...More

I had the 1/4 chicken and biscuit with gravy, which was an ample portion of food. The chicken was moist and plentiful; the biscuit was good, mashed potatoes were fine too. The gravy was decent, and overall a nice meal. Good value for the money.

Went here for lunch after hiking. Convenient location across from Watkins Glen Park. The Philly cheese steak was good but over priced for the very small portion that you get. The chicken tenders were good as well as the sauces, but again, very over priced...More
