Discover Great Knotts Berry Farm Restaurants!Looking for more info about Knotts Berry Farm Restaurants? On this page, you can find out information regarding the very popular Pink's Hot Dog location at Knott's, TGIFriday's Restaurant, the exciting new Johnny Rocket's Diner (actually built WITHIN the theme park!) and several lesser-known restaurants which are located in the "California Marketplace" section just outside of Knott's Berry Farm. (You can shop and dine at the California Marketplace without having to pay admission to the theme park! PLUS, you won't have to pay to park in the Knott's Berry Farm parking lot---because you'll get 3 hours of free parking adjacent to the California Marketplace when you visit any of the stores or restaurants there!)
Save your dinner and shopping receipts! A new parking policy now allows you to get only ONE hour of free parking if you don't have a receipt from a Knott's Marketplace store or restaurant. Also, even if you have a receipt, be sure to keep within the 3 hour limit. Parking for longer than that will run you $24---which is actually more expensive than the Knott's Theme Park lot! (This policy was put into place because too many theme park visitors were using the Knott's Marketplace parking lot, which made it difficult for store and restaurant patrons to find parking places.)
Bacon & Chocolate Funnel Cakes? Another hot topic on the Knott's Berry Farm food scene is that chocolate & bacon funnel cakes are now permanently on the menu at the park...at least, permanent as long as they stay popular! Do you dare to try one? If not, then you'll love the more traditional Cinnabon location at Knott's...serving up the warm, gooey rolls you've enjoyed for many years at your local shopping mall. Cinnabon is right outside of the Knott's theme park gates in the California Marketplace shopping & dining area.
There's still another favorite restaurant at Knotts Berry Farm. It's the beloved Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant. There's so much to say about Mrs. Knott's restaurant that it needed a whole page just to talk about it! If you missed the information about Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant---that famous establishment started in 1934 by Mrs. Knotts herself---you may check out the Mrs Knotts Chicken Dinner Restaurant page of our site, and you'll find a whole page full of info on that restaurant alone!
Pink's Hot Dogs at Knott's Berry FarmPink's Hot Dog stand in Los Angeles is a popular fast food outlet which has been in business since 1939. In fact, it's so popular that when a new location of Pink's opened in the Knott's Marketplace (just outside of the theme park) a big crush of excited customers rushed to enjoy the wieners...and the stream of traffic continues still today!
Hot dogs are the star of the menu at Pink's, naturally. Hamburgers? Yes, they make them...but they aren't the reason that people line up to order at Pink's. If you'd like to see all the varieties they make...which are made with exactly the same recipes as the famous Los Angeles Pink's hot dogs...you may check out the menu at Pink's website.
What's so great about Pink's hot dogs? To connoisseurs, the Pink's recipe is top-of-the-line...almost hot dog Nirvana. If you'd like to read a bite-by-bite review of the new Knott's Berry Farm Pink's restaurant (by someone who actually loves hot dogs,) then here's a fun review of Pink's at Knott's Berry Farm from the Jim Hill Media website.
Johnny Rockets Restaurant within Knotts ParkIn addition to the restaurants at Knott's California Marketplace, you'll also find a new Johnny Rocket's Restaurant inside the park itself! The Johnny Rocket's Diner is located in the "Boardwalk" section of the theme park...right next to the Perilous Plunge ride. This happens to be the largest Johnny Rockets restaurant in the entire chain, and seats 260+ people! Naturally, as at any other Johnny Rocket's retro-style diner, a cute 50's style decor helps the restaurant to ooze nostalgia. Overstuffed booths, chrome trimmings, and retro posters serve as eye-candy. And, to add even more to the atmosphere, juke boxes fill the air with "Do-wop" oldies favorites.
This is the Knotts Berry Farm restaurant where you can order thick, juicy 1/3 pound hamburgers and cheeseburgers, stuffed with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and sauce. Or, how about a giant-sized quarter pound hot dog? And, of COURSE you can find made-from-real-ice-cream malts and milk shakes here---and they're so thick you can stand up a straw in them!
Knott's Berry Farm offers a free, 45-minute "shopping pass" which you can use if you'd like to visit the Johnny Rocket's Diner without paying for park admission. You can get a shopping pass at the Guest Relations booth outside the park (to the left of the main ticket booth area.) However, you WILL have to pay a deposit equal to the park's current admission fee...which they'll keep if you end up staying in the park longer than the 45 minutes you're allowed.
