A Taste of Knotts

food events - gluten free - los angeles area interests - sandwich - travel

Before partying around the park with Snoopy and his pals…

…we feasted on the foods that Knotts has to offer:

The Wilderness Dance Hall was packed for the Media Tasting Event

…I was grateful to have my partner-in-crime with me, so we could share!

All I’d eaten Friday was melon and miso, so I dove right into half of everything you see here:

Started with Bruschetta…

…Hawaiian Ahi Poke with avocado and wasabi cream…

IMG_8096

…and Cajun Lime Riblets from “Spurs.”

IMG_8072

The Flank Steak Sandwich from “Fireman’s Brigrade BBQ” was terrific…

IMG_8062

…as was “Hollywood Hits'” Meatball Sandwich.

IMG_8074

Solid cheeseburger with crunchy jalapeño chips from “Coasters”…

IMG_8095

…there’s a spicy bean version over at “Ghost Town Grill,” which also offers a salmon salad (I left the veggies off my plate).

IMG_8092

Other vegetarian options – Bell Pepper, Tomato, Cucumber and Cheese Wrap…

IMG_8082

…and Gluten-Free Pizza…

…both of those are available at “Soak City,” where I also sampled the Roast Beef Sandwich.

I would have to say that if you don’t have any dietary restrictions and there’s only ONE place to eat at Knotts, it would definitely have to be Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner. After all, this is the place that started the entire theme park, and it’s easy to see why!

We wound up having seconds on the bird…

IMG_8058

…and the biscuits with boysenberry butter.

IMG_8059

Probably could’ve reached for another chicken pot pie too…

IMG_8060

…but I had half of this to save room for. Ask for it to be served warm – the pastry is so much better that way!

IMG_8122

Initially, I thought that slice was the only dessert option. Boy, was I wrong.

IMG_8111

Sam and I split “Chowhouse’s” version of a giant Chipwich…

IMG_8119

…by the time we finished, we were basically eating two freezing cold cookies, pressed together, dipped in vanilla ice cream. An unexpected culinary wonder.

IMG_8125

Also delicious was this funnel cake from “Ghost Town Grub,” covered in strawberry/bosenberry/apple sauce, soft serve ice cream, whipped cream – there’s powdered sugar under all that too!

Thanks so much to Knotts Berry Farms for hosting such a fun and tasty evening!

    Brings back memories of my childhood. We would make the trip up from san Diego just to eat,,,well wait in line first lol, at the Chicken Restaurant.

    Speaking of chicken, when you’ve been in San Diego, have you ever checked out the Chicken Pie shop? The main draw is, a chicken pot pie, with a scoop of veggies,,,a roll and a slice of pie.

      yum! bookmarking it!

        It use to be real inexpensive. Not sure what the prices are like now, I moved from San Diego last year.
        It’s on El Cajon Blvd about 3 blocks west of the 805.
        I think they close fairly early, which is good because the area can be a bit “sketchy” at night.

    I haven’t been to Knotts in years- probably since I was 10 or 11! But I have fond memories of their biscuits and boysenberry butter. Mmm…
    It looks like you had one very delicious evening! And I’m glad to hear that they offer a number of vegetarian options.

    Knott’s eats look delicious – especially the desserts! Chipwiches are one of my favorite desserts (pretty much any baked good with ice cream, actually, is kind of high up there) so that sounds particularly amazing!

    Ahh I miss Knotts sooo much! Snoopy was my FAVORITE growing up and I loved going there just to see him, haha. I haven’t been there in at least 8 years though…I need to go back!
