Thrills Just Aren't
On Rollercoasters At
Knott's Berry Farm
The 2017 Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and to some this is the start of the Summer season. Vacations, beaches, hiking, swimming and of course… Amusement Parks. Known as “America’s First Theme Park,” Knott’s Berry Farm has been attracting thrill seekers with rides that feature fast accelerations, corkscrew loops, head over heels flips, and high-rising gut wrenching drops. But Knott’s Berry Farm also brings a unique form of excitement with their incredibly delicious and mouth watering dining experiences. Knott’s Berry Farm is also notoriously known for and home to the Boysenberry. This berry which is virtually tart-less and bitter-less is used on many delicious desserts and sweet items. We shall now take a look at a few of Knott’s Berry Farm’s food items that should not be missed that you may already be familiar with, or may be finding out for the first time.
Visit the FIREMAN’S BRIGADE BARBECUE and watch them cook some awesome flavorful BBQ on an open-air wood pit. Sink your teeth into their BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo Plate with superb tasting moistful Chicken, and Ribs that are marinated for at least 24 hours and slow cooked overnight for immense flavor that falls off the bone. If you still have room, check out their popular Flank Steak Sandwich that comes on a Jalapeño Roll with House-Made BBQ Mayo, Onions, Tomatos, and BBQ Sauce.
Next, check out the GHOST TOWN GRILL and dig in to their insane Kettle Chip Nachos which are Kettle Chips smothered with White Cheddar Cheese sauce, Bacon Bits, Green Onions, and Pico de Gallo. For those with a sweet tooth, be mesmerized with the Boysenberry Shake. You may not want to share this with others, as it is so pleasing to the taste buds. Also, if you have room, one can never go wrong with a slice of Knott’s Berry Farms’ famous Boysenberry Pie.
A Knott’s Berry Farm favorite that can be found at SUTTER’S FUNNEL CAKE or various locations at the park is of course the ever so scrumptious Funnel Cake. Made to order with the batter being quickly deep fried, then doused with powder sugar, a swirl of vanilla ice cream, and a must get boysenberry puree is definitely to put a smile on any person’s face.
Lastly, quite possibly the signature dining experience at Knott's Berry Farm takes place at MRS. KNOTT'S CHICKEN DINNER RESTAURANT. Here you'll be transformed back in time as their famous succulent Fried Chicken recipe has been in existence since 1934, and where today each piece goes through a well crafted process which takes about 40-45 minutes to bring you that same classic taste. Definitely enjoy your meal here with a side of their warm Biscuits with Boysenberry Butter. Aside from the Fried Chicken, check out their Chicken Pot Pie or Chicken Dumplings both covered with gravy that will make your mouth water. End your meal by taking your time nibbling on their unique Boysenberry Croissant Donut.
