“Reminds me of the high school cafeteria”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

This is hardly a better option than the BK across the street, but it is locally owned, so better to eat a fried chicken sandwich from Mr. Chicken than ugly looking chain. Wish they had some healthier options and didn't use styrofoam.

“My chicken died in vain”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

I think "Mr Dry and Mediocre Chicken" is more appropriate. Service was friendly and the cole slaw was pretty good. I got the half chickn platter which included fries, cole slaw, and a buttered roll. Fries and the roll were just food service quality and the butter was hard as a rock. The chicken was very dry and disappointing. The restaurant came somewhat recommended. Glad we went there and found out for ourselves but we won't be going back.

“dryyyy chicken : (”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We'd heard mixed comments about Mr. Chicken and decided to try it for ourselves; our chicken was so dry that every bite required a follow-up drink. The sides were average. All in all we were quite disappointed. I guess it's a Watkins Glen institution but we've been there and done that and Mr. Chicken is crossed off our list.
