Good food, Great value

We went here to get a fast meal while on the road. The food was good, prices were very reasonable, and service was fast and friendly. I got the chicken strips and my husband got the 2 pc meal. Both were good and plentiful. Mine came with 1 side, biscuit and gravy, 4 large strips for less than... read more

I noticed this Chicken Express was open for business in Arkadelphia, and I don't recall it being here before. The restaurant is right next to Stuckey's, which has been in Arkadelphia for many years. It's located at the junction of Highways 8, 26, and 51, just west of the junction with I - 30, exit 73, which is the Arkadelphia... More

This is a great family environment and if you like fried chicken you are in luck. It's busy and loud but tasty.

The place was busy and clean. One can see much of the kitchen and I like knowing what is there the good was very hot and the chicken was plain fried which is how I like it. An excellent rating is on the curve in a town where consistently good food is not that common. This chain is almost always... More

Went through the drive-thru since we were traveling, and had a bit of a wait, but at least that means they were probably frying that fish to order and not giving you something that had been sitting around. It's good catfish, considering this is a chicken restaurant. I'm not crazy about their cole slaw, the fried pickles were extremely salty,... More

We stopped here on our way back from a workshop in Texas. I expected better chicken from a place dedicated to the bird, but it was totally devoid of any seasoning in the breading. I was traveling with six high school kids, so we ordered the 30 piece chicken tenders meal. It was a ton of food and a good... More

This Chicken E was brand new, with a big place to eat inside and TVs all around with different programs. The food was typical for the restaurant. The atmosphere could get a but loud thanks to the hard walls and high ceilings when college students come in to eat. But I was impressed with how modern the restaurant was.

On a two week roadtrip, this was by far the absolute worse meal we had. The service was fast and exact. Beyond that there is nothing good to say. The amount of fat and grease was simply Unbelievable. We will not return, and you would be well advised to not venture here.
