Mrs. Knott's Chicken-to-Go counter is located mere feet from where people
for hours to get a seat at the chicken-dinner restaurant. It remains
puzzling why anyone bothers with the restaurant when you can conceivably be
licking your fingers and rubbing your tummies full from a meal well-eaten

chicken! And on top of that, it's less expensive. A dinner bucket at
$19.95 can easily feed four people, with nine pieces of hen, two tubs of
mashed potatoes, a tub of gravy, an equally tall tub of a side of our
plus more biscuits (of the tender and fluffy variety) with boysenberry
(a fruit that was popularized by Walter Knott, donchaknow) than you'll know
to do with. You'll even get paper plates and utensils so you can gulp
all down at a nearby picnic table.
