Woman eating pizza at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner — Located right outside of Knott’s Berry Farm, there are tons of options for lighter dining at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner restaurant. Go for the famous Knott’s chicken noodle soup or chicken salad for a traditional choice, or opt for the taro root scallops or quinoa arugula Greek salad for something a little more unusual. To get a bite of the iconic boysenberry go for the tri-berry salad with loganberry dressing.

Knott’s Berry Farm—You don’t have to over indulge when visiting Knott’s Berry Farm theme park as there are plenty of options for lighter dining. The rotisserie chicken at Boardwalk Barbecue gets top marks from diners as does the chef salad at Coasters. Grizzlies has nourishing sandwich options and the southwest salad at Cantina is big enough to share. If hot dogs or pizza are on your mind, go for the vegan dog at Fiesta Dogs or the cauliflower pizza at Beachy Keen’s Pizza.

Salad at Porto's in Buena Park, CA

Porto’s Bakery & CafePorto’s offers soups and salads made with the freshest ingredients. Go for the classic Cuban black bean soup, or the caldo gallego soup made with white beans, Spanish-style chorizo, ham, potatoes, turnips, Swiss chard, and smoked paprika slowly simmered in a chicken broth. Salad options include a caesar salad and chopped salad, both with chicken as an optional added protein. At Yelp’s #1 Restaurant, you can’t go wrong.

Basilur Tea—Known for their premium tea selection, Basilur Tea offers the smoked salmon eggs benedict as a fresh option for breakfast any time of day. Two poached eggs are topped on a toasted English muffin with smoked salmon, avocado, and Hollandaise sauce for the perfect start to your day.

Sushi at Aburi Sushi in Buena Park, CA
Aburi Sushi—Start your meal at Aburi Sushi with garlic edamame and a seaweed salad, and then go for the all-you-can-eat sushi or a la carte options that include yellowtail poke sashimi and veggie rolls. Up your dining experience with one of the premium rolls like the rainbow roll—tuna, salmon, albacore, tilapia, crab, cucumber, and avocado rolled together in a delicious bite.

Fifty One Chinese Kitchen—We love a visit to the Fifty One Chinese Kitchen where made-from-scratch Asian fusion is the name of the game. A great starter to share is the Cali-style lettuce wraps with assorted vegetables or shrimp. Follow that up with the seafood curry—a satisfying blend of fresh shrimp, scallops, and mussels simmered in a rich curry sauce.

Salad at Golden Rose in Buena Park, CA

Golden Rose—Fresh, aromatic spices dominate the Mediterranean menu at Golden Rose. You can get a traditional Greek salad with tomatoes, feta cheese, and olives, or try the falafel plate—a savory combo of peeled fava beans, garbanzo beans, garlic, onion, and fresh cilantro. The house-made chicken tawook wrap sandwich is a menu favorite with tomatoes, pickles, garlic sauce, and lettuce on markouk bread.


La Huasteca—Start your meal at La Huasteca with a fresh salad and then choose the pescado yucateco for your entree. Whitefish is marinated in achiote and spices, and served Yucateco style on a plantain leaf with a side of white rice and vegetables.
Coffee, ice coffee, and avocado toast from In Sit in Buena Park, CA

IL PALCO—Traditional, upscale Italian food makes up the menu of IL PALCO and the salmon steak is a great option when you want something light. Salmon is perfectly cooked and served with tarragon, arugula, bell pepper, and onion for a fresh bite.

In-sīt Coffee—Get your coffee and avocado toast fix at In-sīt. Seasoned avocado mash, arugula, heirloom tomatoes, and chili flakes make this a fresh, California option that’s perfect for breakfast or lunch.

Tacos at La Calle Tacos in Buena Park, CA

Tacos La Calle—Taco lovers, this is the spot for you! Mexican street tacos dominate the menu at Tacos La Calle and the camaron and pescado tacos are excellent options when you want something lighter than the traditional carne asada. Fresh fish or grilled shrimp are topped with pico de gallo and cilantro for a bite that will send you to Mexico and back again.

Main Street Pho Grill—Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of dairy and oil, complementary textures, and reliance on herbs and vegetables. The vegetarian spring roll at Main Street Pho Grill is a fresh way to start your meal before you create your own pho noodle soup loaded with vegetables and protein in a savory broth.

Shrimp Taco at Poquito Mas in Buena Park, CA

Poquito Mas—Opt for the ahi tuna at Poquito Mas when you want to go for a lighter option. This South Pacific line-caught, sustainable ahi tuna is charbroiled and served in tacos or burritos with cilantro, fresh onions, and cabbage. Top it with pico de gallo and you’ll be in fresh fish heaven.
