Here is our ranked list of every single item we've eaten at Knott's Berry Farm, so you can see what to try when you next visit the park!

Knott's Berry Farm has some fantastic food, along with some not-so-great eats, and we've had the privilege to be able to try quite a bit. The food at Knott's Berry Farm varies from quick snacks to indulgent meals to creative sweets and more. The theme park's festivals also bring unique food options throughout the year, ensuring there's always something new to try. Indeed, some of the best food at Knott's Berry Farm come from the festivals.
1. Pistachio Mahi Mahi with Rice Pilaf & Lemon Cream Sauce

Creamy, flaky, and full of flavor, yet also healthy and understated. We find ourselves hoping to see this dish back on the menu soon!

(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

2. Chicken Cordon Bleu with a Boysenberry Cheese Sauce

It's a delightful take on a favorite classic that's kid-friendly and fun to eat. The sauce is the best part!

Wagon Wheel Pizza
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

3. Boysenberry Meatballs

They're tender, they're juicy, they're full of flavor! We come back to these time and time again as our favorite Knott's Berry Farm comfort meal.

Boardwalk BBQ

4. Shrimp & Crab Dip

This dip is warm, filling, and delicious! Forget having it as an appetizer -this dip can shine as its own meal. The chips that come with the dip are fantastic as well. Don't miss this one at your next visit to Ghost Town Grill!

Ghost Town Grill

5. Fried Chicken

Located just outside the theme park, this chicken is a sleeper hit! It's juicy beyond belief and well seasoned. It can be a bit pricey, but you don't need to buy a ticket to the park to get it.

Chicken-To-Go

6. Boysenberry Filled Cheese Bites w/Fries

These are, quite literally, the best cheese bites we've ever had. They're packed with flavor, have a perfect texture, and the boysenberry/cranberry walnut relish dipping sauce that's paired with this meal is perfection.

Strictly on a Stick
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

7. Portobello Mushroom Burger

This burger is JUICY and full of flavor. The fact that it's healthier than a regular burger is just icing on the cake! We wish Knott's would offer more regular vegeterian options like this mushroom burger because we can't get enough.

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

8. Grande Mac Sloppy Joe w/Mac & Cheese

This is an indulgent, messy meal that tastes oh-so-perfect during a midday break at a theme park. Since it's served at Grizzy Creek Lodge, you can even add toppings to your heart's delight!

Grizzly Creek Lodge
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

9. Garlic Knots

We're fans of garlic knots in general, but Prop Shop Pizzeria really hit it out of the park with these babies! The garlic flavor is strong, the bread is soft yet has a nice crust. These are what every garlic knot should strive to be.

Prop Shop Pizzeria

10. Bear Claws

This is undoubtedly our favorite breakfast or snack at Knott's Berry Farm. It's just SO good, but we can't really figure out why. We could eat these alllllll day long. Ask them to heat it up a bit and enjoy!

Ghost Town Bakery

11. All-Beef Meatballs in a Boysenberry BBQ Sauce on Mashers

If you can't tell by now, we're meatball fans. These meatballs are delicious, and just a little different from the usual ones served at Boardwalk BBQ. They're worth a try during the festival, but we prefer the Boardwalk BBQ mac 'n' cheese as a side rather than the mashed potatoes on this one.

Boysenberry Lane Booth
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

12. Boysenberry Slushy Mudslide

We're usually not big fans of most alcoholic drinks at theme parks, but this slushy blew us away! It's very sweet, but you can still taste a bit of the vodka and plenty of the boysenberry.

Boysenberry Lane Booth
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

13. Cinnabon Cheese Cake

This is a tasty combination of two of our favorite things: cinnamon buns and cheesecakes! It's perfectly sweet without being too much, moist and tender, and topped with pecans that add a nice crunch. It doesn't get much better than this.

Pop Shop Pizzeria

14. Carrot Cake

This cake is moist, sweet, and has amazing texture with both pecans and shaved carrots mixed in. It's everything a carrot cake should be!

Ghost Town Bakery

15. Boysenberry Mousse Chocolate Cake

Our favorite dessert from the 2022 Boysenberry Festival, this chocolate mousse cake is as delicious as it is beautiful. We only wish it were a little larger!

Ghost Town Bakery
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

16. Tri Tip

The Tri-Tip at Boardwalk BBQ is delicious and pairs perfectly with the mac and cheese (both the 3 cheese and the pesto). Sometimes it can be slightly dry, but the flavor is wonderful and the serving size is enough to share.

Boardwalk BBQ

17. Cowboy Stew w/Kielbasa & a Waffle Biscuit

This hearty stew won our hearts. It's filling and heartwarming, just as stews should be. The paired biscuit is dry, which is perfect for dipping into this tasty soup!

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

18. Waffle Chicken Slide w/a Honey Mustard Coleslaw

This meal doesn't look like much, but it has a nice blend of flavors. The waffle is hard but sweet. When paired with the chicken, it's just alright. However, if you add in the coleslaw, which provides moisture and a extra little kick, this sandwich becomes pretty darn good.

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

19. Boysenberry Key Lime Tart

Like a mini key lime pie, this tart is tangy and sweet and makes for a perfect dessert or snack while you're in the park.

Ghost Town Bakery
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

20. Boysenberry Pie Bar

These pie bars can be a bit messy to eat, but the flavors and the texture are perfection if your sweet tooth is calling. It's sweet and tangy, although not as smooth as the key lime tart. Still, it's near the top of our list for favorite desserts in Knott's Berry Farm.

Ghost Town Bakery
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

21. Boysenberry Cake

This cake is soft and moist and is a great use of the park's signature boysenberry flavor. Our only minor complaint is that it can be a bit too sweet, but that never seems to bother the younger crowd.

Ghost Town Bakery

22. Pork Ribs

There are a few options for barbecue at the park, but best BBQ at Knott's Berry Farm is definitely the pork ribs. They're juicy, large enough to share, and are grilled fresh in front of you. What's not to love?

Fireman's Brigade BBQ

23. Boysenberry Cheesecake

Move over strawberry cheesecake -there's a new sheriff in town. This cheesecake is soft and sweet and enhanced by the bold, tangy flavor of the boysenberry jam. It's the perfect Knott's Berry Farm cheesecake.

Ghost Town Bakery

24. Chorizo Fries

Loaded fries are always a good choice, but the chorizo fries at Papa Loca are our favorite. The flavors of the toppings aren't particularly overwhelming. There's chorizo, tomatoes, onions, and cheese sauce, and that's really all you need for a great meal (or a large snack).

Papa Loca

25. Boysenberry Filled Donut Open Faced Chicken Sandwich with Bacon Jam and Arugula

Sometimes strange combinations create some of the best food at Knott's Berry Farm, and this specialty snack is proof! The donut itself is great. The chicken itself is fine. Together, they create a fun flavor profile that you don't see often. The bacon jam adds even more flavor to this sweet and savory meal.

Wilderness Broiler
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

26. Boysenberry Milkshake

This one's a classic favorite at Coaster's Diner in Boardwalk. Sure, the other milkshakes at the diner are just as delicious, but nothing says "Knott's Berry Farm" like a boysenberry flavored milkshake!

Coaster's Diner

27. Bacon Cheese Fries

Crispy fries topped with melted cheese and bacon has always been a winning combination with us and Johnny Rockets did not let us down. In fact, this is our favorite item on the menu at that restaurant. It's perfect for sharing as well!

Johnny Rockets

28. Strawberry Donut Cake in a Cup

This fun dessert lets you enjoy all things wonderful in a single cup: donut holes, whipped cream, and strawberries in syrup. It's not overly sweet and perfect for those summer nights at Knott's!

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

29. Vegan Tenders

We discovered these amazing tenders while exploring the vegan options at Knott's Berry Farm, and they're honestly better than the regular tenders on the menu. The breading is light but crunchy, and the tenders themselves are seasoned well and are moist.

Sutter's Grill
or Grizzly Creek Lodge

30. Spaghetti w/Bolognese Sauce & Meatballs

The spaghetti and meatballs are alright, but the bolognese sauce is what really makes this meal. It's packed with flavor, isn't too acidic, and nice and thick. There's also plenty to enjoy, so it's perfect for sharing!

Prop Shop Pizzeria

31. Spaghetti w/Plant-Based Bolognese Sauce

This plant-based version of the bolognese sauce at Prop Shop Pizzeria is just as tasty as the regular one. This meal comes only second to that one because you can't add meatballs if you want to keep it vegetarian. You can, however, add veggies as a topping!

Prop Shop Pizzeria

32. Caprese Tortellini Salad w/a Balsamic Drizzle

This salad is one of the more indulgent ones we've ever had. It's refreshingly cold. The tortellini is cooked to perfection and the flavors taste wonderful and healthy together.

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

33. Tiramisu Cake

This generous slice of tiramisu cake is the perfect ending to a meal at Prop Shop Pizzeria. It's light, creamy, and doesn't have an overwhelmingly bitter coffee flavor to it. 

Prop Shop Pizzeria

34. Calamari

The calamari itself is pretty great. It's nice and crispy with the perfect breading to squid ratio. The boysenberry sauce, however, levels up this entire dish. It's sweet and tangy and we can't seem to get enough of it!

Ghost Town Grill

35. Soyrizo Tacos w/Chimichurri

These vegan tacos surprised us with their rich flavor. They're messy to eat (like all tacos) but are worth the mess. The sauce has quite the kick, so we recommend just using a little if you don't want your mouth burning.

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

36. Vegan Dog

This little dog is so generously topped with veggies, you can barely see it underneath. We can't even tell it's a vegan dog. The texture is perfect, the flavor is a little light, but it definitely tastes like a real sausage. Pair this with some vegan mayo or bbq sauce and it's fantastic. 

Fiesta Dogs

37. Banana Split Funnel Cake

This massive tower of bananas, pineapples, ice cream, and strawberry syrup atop a funnel cake is the definition of sweet indulgence. You will want to share this one on a hot summer night with friends!

Ghost Town Grub

38. Mashed Potatoes

These mashed potatoes are simple but delicious. They're creamy, perfectly seasoned, and topped with warm country gravy. They're the best mashed potatoes you can get at Knott's.

Chicken-To-Go

39. Carne Asada Fries

It's got flavorful carne asada, creamy guacamole, a large dollap of sour cream, and tons of shredded cheese. What more could you want? This hefty meal is even large enough to share!

Papa Loca

40. Lucy's Kit Kat Fingers Funnel Cake

This funnel cake is delightful to look at for about a minute before it starts to melt under the California sun. It's a beast to eat, too, with a lot going on, but it's great to share and delicious!

Log Ride Funnel Cake
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

41. Flank Steak

Boardwalk BBQ is one of our favorite restaurants at Knott's Berry Farm, and flank steak is one of our favorite items to get here. The steak is usually pretty tender and juicy, and you can change up your sides to fit whatever mood you're in!

Boardwalk BBQ

42. Shermy's Smoked Meat Sandwich

The rye bread is soft and spongy, the meat serving is generous, and the paired steak fries are well seasoned and hit the spot. This is a classic, All-American lunch that should not be missed!

Boardwalk BBQ
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

43. Avocado Toast

If you only check out the bakery case at Ghost Town Bakery, you're missing out. The sandwich and breakfast options are great there, including this indulgent avocado toast. It's two giant slices of toast topped genrously with avocado, tomatoes, and mozzarella. If you remove the mozzarella, it can even be a vegan option.

Ghost Town Bakery

44. Pastrami Tots

This boxed meal at Calico Tater Bites looks like a bit of a mess, however, the salty  pastrami, paired with the tangy mustard and the crunchy texture of tator tots makes for a winning combination. Ask for the sauces on the side so you can have a bit more control over the strength of the mustard.

Calico Tater Bites

45. Korean BBQ Burger

This Korean burger is one of the more unique options we've tried at Knott's Berry Farm. The kimchi is not too spicy, which is perfect for us. The patty is a little dry, but the sauce helps. It's definitely worth a try if you want something new.

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

46. Boysenberry Cobbler w/Ice Cream

The cobber is great. The ice cream makes it fantastic. The combination of warm and cold is delightful, and the cobbler soaks up the ice cream so well. Don't miss out on this fantastic dessert if you swing by Ghost Town Grill for a meal!

Ghost Town Grill

47. Esquitas Clasico

This delightful snack is cheap and delicious and still large enough to share with one or two other people. The texture is fun, and you can't really go wrong with the combination of corn, bacon, and cheese!

Fiesta Dogs

48. Spring Fling Salad with Shrimp and a Boysenberry Vinaigrette

There aren't enough lighter or healthier options to eat at Knott's Berry Farm, so we were delighted when these arrived for the festival. The boysenberry vinaigrette is perfection. The salad itself was fresh and not too filling, which is great for the middle of the day. We just wish they'd put more shrimp in it.

Spurs Chophouse
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

49. Ode to Cordelia

This donut bacon cheeseburger sounds like the most unhealthy meal in the park, and it might very well be. However, it's also a pretty versatile meal, and something a little more unique. You can add your toppings and sauces to make it your own. You can also eat it open-faced and save one of the donuts as a dessert!

Coaster's Diner

50. Funnel cake w/Strawberry Topping & Ice Cream

The funnel cakes from Sutter's Funnel Cakes usually look like a hot mess when they come out, but at least they do not skimp on the toppings! These large desserts are great to share with the whole family, regardless of what toppings you choose. We highly recommend ice cream, though, for the best experience.

Sutter's Funnel Cake

51. Salmon Orzo Salad

The salmon is sometimes a little dry, but otherwise, this fresh salad is quite the opposite of the Ode to Cordelia, which makes Coaster's Diner a great place for groups that have people who want to indulge and people who want to eat healthier. Oh and the dressing? Phenomenal!

Coaster's Diner

52. Double Cheeseburger Basket

This burger is actually pretty great, especially since it comes with bacon and you can grab whatever you want at the topping bar afterward. However, there's definitely not enough bun for all that deliciousness.

Coaster's Diner

53. Side Caesar Salad

This small salad is flavorful, fresh, and exactly what a side salad should be. If they had this in a larger size, we wouldn't hesitate to order it as a meal in a heartbeat (with grilled chicken, of course).

Prop Shop Pizzeria

54. Smoked Sausage on a Bun

This is a pretty simple meal, but sometimes simple is best. The sausages are juicy and well-flavored. We recommend adding some extra sauce or condiments to boost the taste. This is one of our favorite quite snacks or light meals at the park.

Fireman's Brigade BBQ

55. Mexican Dog

This bacon wrapped hot dog is reminiscent of the ones you can get at the hot dog carts in downtown LA near the fashion district. They're fantastic and filling, although a bit smaller than we'd like. If the lines are short, this is a great lunch or snack, but we don't recommend waiting longer than 20 minutes.

Fiesta Dogs

56. The Original Burger

This classic option at Johnny Rockets is a solid choice for  a standard burger. The lettuce is crispy, the patty is juicy, and the buns are slightly toasted and flavorful.

Johnny Rockets

57. BBQ Flank Steak Sandwich

While in line at Fireman's Brigade BBQ, we once heard a lady sing the praises of this sandwich for close to 30 minutes straight. The sandwich is  solid, and we would definitely have it again. It's not as heavenly delicious as she made it seem. Still, it's filling and large enough to share and worth a try.

Fireman's Brigade BBQ

58. Mini Crab Sushi Roll with a Boysenberry Aioli

These rolls were pretty decent, albeit a little small for the price. The boysenberry aioli is great, and the rest of the roll is pretty solid. It's definitely not our favorite sushi roll, but it's good for what it is.

Boysenberry Lane Booth
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

59. Esquites Clasico

Although not as fun as the Esquites Fiesta, this toned down version still makes for a great side or snack if you're not really feeling like eating a bunch of bacon.

Fiesta Dogs

60. Baked Mac & Cheese w/BBQ Pulled Pork

This meal is hefty, and the pulled pork is solid, but the mac n cheese tastes cheap. It's soft, doesn't have a lot of flavor, and really just doesn't shine. We recommend hitting up Boardwalk BBQ if you're craving pulled pork with mac n cheese.

Ghost Town Grill

61. Trio of Sausage with Peppers and Onions on Boysenberry Polenta

This is a more unique offering that came with the 2022 Boysenberry Festival that we enjoyed quite a bit. Three different types of sausages means the flavor changes a bit with each bite. Some sausages were spicy while some were mild. The polenta was just okay.

Boysenberry Lane Booth
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

62. Deconstructed Lemonade with Blackberries, Loganberries, and Red Raspberries

This fun, refreshing drink is perfect for those hotter California days. The mix of berries is interesting, but the flavor is still pretty light and is heavy on the lemonade.

Wilderness Broiler
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

63. Rotisserie Chicken

The rotisserie chicken at Boardwalk BBQ is good, not great. It's juicy and has great flavor, but we wish the skin was cooked a little more to have that nice, crispy texture. It's a great meal for those who want something a little lighter though.

Boardwalk BBQ

64. Limoncello Cookie

One of the newer treats at the shop, this tasty Limoncello Cookie is a great dessert to pair with the pizzas or pastas at the Prop Shop Pizzeria. It's not overly sweet and has a great crunch. The icing is a bit underwhelming.

Prop Shop Pizzeria

65. Boysenberry Macaroon

These macaroons are decent and unique from the standard bakery offerings. The boysenberry flavor isn't particularly strong, but it's still a solid macaroon in itself.

Ghost Town Bakery

66. Boysenberry & Cream Cheese Muffin

This is a delicious muffin BUT there really isn't much of a boysenberry or cream cheese flavor in it. The strudle top is sweet with a nice crunch. The muffin itself is moist and sweet. We still love it, though it doesn't live up to its name.

Ghost Town Bakery

67. Linus' Blondies

We're definitely on the brownie side of the blondes vs brownies debate, but these blondies were not bad. They weren't too sweet and had great texture to them. Aside from that, there's not much to say about them.

Ghost Town Bakery
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

68. Penne Pasta w/Alfredo Sauce & Grilled Chicken

The build-your-own pasta option at Prop Shop Pizzeria lets you try a large combination of pastas. The penne pasta is fine -nothing special. The sauce is tasty but nothing super special either. The grilled chicken is meh. It doesn't taste like very high quality chicken.

Prop Shop Pizzeria

69. BBQ Pulled Pork Tots

This boxed mess is quite a sight to look at when you first get it. Taste-wise, it's pretty decent, with most of the flavor in the pulled pork. It's also pretty filling and great to share. It's nothing particularly special though.

Calico Tater Bites

70. Jumbo Pretzel

One of the most reliable snacks in the park, the jumbo pretzel is a solid go-to option if you want something to munch on while you're waiting in line for a ride or watching a show. Add a cheese dip for some extra flavor or keep it plain for a great vegan snack!

Pemmican Pickle

71. Coal Ice Cream Cone

This beautiful cone is a delightful treat during Knott's Merry Farm. There really isn't a flavor to it -we think it's just dyed vanilla ice cream. It can, however, stain your teeth and lips black or gray.

Mix-It-Up Ice Cream Shop
(2021 Knott's Merry Farm)

72. Country Fried Steak

After having waited quite a while to get in to Ghost Town Grill, we were honestly disappointed with the country fried steak. It's okay, but that's really it. The vegetables lacked flavor and were mushy. The steak itself was also really lacking in flavor. The mashed potatoes were okay.

Ghost Town Grill

73. Peanuts Character Celebration Cookies

These Peanuts Character cookies are a fun treat during the Peanuts Celebration. They're exactly the same as the Snoopy Cookies that are available year round, which means they're pretty meh, but they're really too cute not to get.

Ghost Town Bakery
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

74. Snoopy Cookie

If we made a list of the cutest food items at Knott's Berry Farm, the Snoopy Cookie would likely be near the top of that list. This is an adorable cookie and a must-get, especially if it's your first time. Taste-wise, however, it's just okay.

Ghost Town Bakery

75. Kite Cookies

This is also exactly like the Snoopy Cookies, however their design is not as great, although we appreciate the effort. Still, we're not sure if this design should come back during the next Peanuts Celebration.

Charleston Circle Coffee
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

76. Boysenberry Cookie

This cookie is like a sugar cookie with a boysenberry flavor added to it. It's pretty solid and makes for a great snack, but it's nothing to write home about.

Ghost Town Bakery

77. Boysenberry BBQ Chicken Pizza

This pizza kind of tastes like a fast food pizza. It's not greasy, but there's a lot going on and the flavors are just okay. We wish the boysenberry flavor could stand out more. It's not bad, but we probably won't reach for it often.

Wagon Wheel Pizza
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

78. Chicken Sandwich on a Ciabatta Bun

This sandwich falls toward the bottom of our list of best food at Knott's Berry Farm because it's solid but has room for a ton of improvement. It's a step above fast food chicken sandwiches, with fresh veggies and a ciabatta bun. The chicken is a bit dry and could use more flavor, and the bun can be improved.

Wilderness Broiler

79. Crab Slider w/a Lemon Caper Aioli

This crab slider tastes more like a burger than a crab slider. The flavor is still pretty solid, and the lemon caper aioli helps to balance the dryness of the patty. It's not our favorite, but we enjoyed the chips!

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

80. Cauliflower Veggie Pizza

One of the few vegan options at the park, this veggie pizza is okay. The veggies taste great, and, for a vegan pizza, it's solid. Still, if you don't need a vegan meal, the other pizza options are much better.

Prop Shop Pizza

81. Chicken Tender Basket

These chicken tenders are basic. They're not the worst we've ever had, but they're certainly not Raising Cane's chicken tenders. They're a little dry and could use some more seasoning. The texture of the breading is pretty standard, so that's good at least.

Grizzly Creek Lodge

82. Cheery Crispy Chicken Sandwich

This chicken sandwich is decent for what it is. It's nothing special, but it tastes like it should, and you can add sauces to improve on the flavor. The fries that come with it are slightly better than the ones at Grizzly Creek Lodge, because they're seasoned well.

Sutter's Grill

83. Pickle

There's nothing wrong with this pickle. It's actually a pretty solid pickle. But it is just a pickle.

Judge Roy Beans

84. Chocolate Snoopy Cupcake

This is a pretty plain chocolate cupcake, but the design is cute! It's a smidge dry, but not too bad otherwise. There's plenty of frosting, which makes it a tad too sweet. Otherwise, this is a  solid snack all around.

Ghost Town Bakery

85. Grilled Chicken Sandwich Basket

This is a very standard chicken sandwich, like the ones you'd find at a school cafeteria or a cheap fast food restaurant. You are able to add toppings and sauces from the salad bar, though, so you can make it a little better with some work.

Grizzly Creek Lodge

86. Woodstock Mango Sushi Roll

This interesting little roll was available in the refrigerated section near the cashier at Boardwalk BBQ, so they were easy to miss. They don't really taste like much. You taste the eel sauce, the rice, and a bit of the mango. It's okay, but nothing we'd reach for again.

Boardwalk BBQ
(2022 Peanuts Celebration)

87. Fresh Baked Corn Bread

The corn bread itself is flavored well, just more dry than it should be. Paired with the juicy bbq options and mac and cheese, it's a solid choice for a side at Boardwalk BBQ.

Boardwalk BBQ

88. Chocolate Chip Muffin

This is just your standard bake shop muffin. There's nothing special about it. It's a little dry, but there's plenty of chocolate chips. There's plenty of better snacks to be enjoyed, though.

Charleston Coffee

89. Carne Asada Tacos w/Rice & Beans

The carne asada meat is very, very dry. Eating the tacos with the beans helps, but there's no reason for the carne asada to be that dry. The rice is fine -nothing special. These tacos are just meh.

La Cantina

90. Vanilla Chocolate Soft Serve Swirl in a Cone

We're normally fans of a nice, cold soft serve cone, but this soft serve was more icy than creamy. We hope Knott's switches to a better brand of soft serve because this just isn't it.

Cave Inn Snacks

91. Vegan Cheese Pizza

Grizzly Creek Lodge isn't exactly known for its great food, but this pizza is particularly bad. It tastes like the cheapest pizza we've ever had. The cheese doesn't really taste like cheese. The crust is thin and tasteless. We recommend vegans try something better at the park.

Grizzly Creek Lodge

92. Boysenberry Margarita

For a margarita, this drink is pretty mediocre. There's barely any sweetness, and it tastes poor for there to be so little alcohol in it. We recommend trying the other drinks the saloon has to offer.

Calico Saloon

93. Churro

The churros at Cave Inn Snacks are basic. They're pretty much what you'd expect for theme park quality churros. However, that makes them steps above the churros from the Gourmet Churro Factory. So skip the expensive mediocre churros and get these ones instead.

Cave Inn Snacks

94. French Toast Sticks

These french toast sticks look exactly how they taste. They're fine if you're not too picky and you want breakfast food super early in the park before all the other restaurants open. But they could be a lot better.

Grizzly Creek Lodge

95. Baked Potato Wedges

The baked potato wedges at Boardwalk BBQ are honestly fine, but there are so many better sides to choose from, like any of the mac 'n' cheese options, the corn bread, or the potato salad. Unless you're really craving fries with your bbq, skip these and get something better!

Boardwalk BBQ

96. Mac N Cheese

It's surprising how the quality of mac n cheese at Knott's can change so drastically. The side order of Mac n Cheese at Chicken-to-Go is the worst at the park. Go for the Boardwalk BBQ mac n cheese if you're really craving this dish!

Chicken-To-Go

97. Boysenberry Corn Dog Basket

The corn dogs at Strictly On A Stick look worse than they taste, but not by much. They're subpar when it comes to corndog standards, but they're edible and will do in a pinch if you're craving corn dogs. The fries are also pretty mediocre with a terrible softy-ish texture.

Strictly On A Stick

98. Churro Sundae

The churros at Gourmet Churro Factory are unfortunately less than stellar. The sundae is okay, mostly because the soft serve, whipped cream, and strawberry sauce are great. The churros, however, have a weird texture that's in between crunchy and soft, but not in a good way. They also lack any flavor.

Gourmet Churro Factory

99. Chicken Dumplings in a Boysenberry Wonton w/Rice Pilaf and a Teriyaki Dipping Sauce

These weren't horrible, but that's not exactly a compliment. These dumplings were just okay. They lacked flavor and the texture was very wanting, as if they weren't fresh. The rice was also mediocre with not much flavor or oomph.

Spurs Chophouse
(2022 Boysenberry Festival)

100. Acai Bowl w/Berries & Granola

We were so excited when we first saw this item during Knott's Summer Nights because we love acai bowls. This bowl was still frozen when we got it, including the fruits. We let it thaw for a while, which helped, but the flavor was terrible. The fruits were tasteless, the granola was bland, and the acai base tasted watered down.

Food Booth
(2022 Knott's Summer Nights)

101. BBQ Burger Basket

This is a rather sad burger, in our opinion. The patty is dry, the bacon is subpar, and the sauce and cheese add a mediocre flavor mixture to it. If you're craving a bacon burger, skip this one and head to Coaster's Diner for theirs instead. We do not recommend getting this burger.

Sutter's Grill

102. Stuffed Churro w/Boysenberry Filling

We'll say it again: The churros at Gourmet Churro Factory are bad. They have no crunch to them. They lack flavor. They somehow taste stale, even though I see the workers making them fresh at the shop. We think it's likely their batter is just mediocre, along with their cinnamon sugar coating.

Gourmet Churro Factory

103. Veggie Burger

To Quote Tim: "This tastes like cardboard." The patty is pretty bad. We tried to make this dish vegan by putting it in a lettuce wrap and adding veggies, but it would've been better without the patty.

Coaster's Diner

104. Taste of Knott's Roast Pork

This is, hands down, the worst meal we've ever had at Knott's. We were actually excited to try it, since roast pork sounded delicious. However the meat is a puck. We broke the plastic knife when cutting it. You can also see the meat is still a little red on the corner. Also the peas are flavorless. Don't get this meal.
