Demolition crew levels Mr. Chicken

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - It's the end of an era for a popular dining location in Watkins Glen. 

On Tuesday, construction crews demolished Mr. Chicken. The restaurant became famous for serving delicious fried chicken to residents and tourists alike. 

After 50 years of operation, the restaurant closed last December due to health reasons. 

In a Facebook post last December, Mr. Chicken alluded to the Watkins Glen State Park taking over the location.
