Restaurant of Robot Chickens

If you thought there was a celebrity name that couldn't somehow be poultrified, you thought wrong. The pun will be in all caps on their nest boxes to make sure you don't miss it. We made a game of guessing what the chicken name was for which artist was playing at the moment -- there always is one. Cluck Owens! *groan*

Friendly employees dress in identical overalls and plaid work shirts, a bit like Hee-Haw extras. They serve breakfast and lunch from 7am-1pm. Not sure why they wrap up so early; I'd go all day. The food is excellent diner fare.

The musical numbers are intermittent, but you know one's coming when the monitor behind the chicken begins to change backgrounds. That's when you should have the camera ready, but be forewarned -- staff aren't as impressed with the show as the guests are, and often walk in front of you as you're recording.

Don't miss the fun man eatin' chicken and dangerous baby rattlers next door at the Comedy Barn.

Very silly diner with decent food and singing animatronic chickens. What's not to like? We enjoyed the visit and would recommend it just for the entertainment.

This was genuinely THE most entertaining breakfast I have ever enjoyed. The food is standard breakfast fare, but there's really something special about being serenaded with Sweet Caroline by 100 animatronic chickens while you're eating your pancakes.

Silly Chickens on the Roof

Frizzle Chicken Farmhouse is a restaurant on the strip in Pigeon Forge. A "Frizzle" is a type of chicken whose feathers curl outward rather than lay flat. These types of chickens are often displayed at fairs and entered in competitions. Four large, smiling frizzle chickens are perched on the restaurant roof, and inside are about 100 smaller animatronic chickens that are constantly clucking or singing.

The barn-like architecture (and goofy birds) suggest that this restaurant is associated with the Comedy Barn theater next door. Comedy Barn has our favorite billboard in Pigeon Forge. Its only words are, "Talking Dog!"
