Pretty good catfish

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... read more

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

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.

For a fast food type restaurant, this place was excellent. It was very clean and the service was great. Food was hot and you could tell it had just been prepared.

I have eaten here twice in the past couple of weeks. First I will address the service. VERy good. They were kind and professional. I did have to wait 2 minutes for them to fry fresh gizzards for me but it was well worth that two minute wait. I am a gizzard fan and I openly admit it but it... More

Among three of us we had fried catfish, chicken strips, pepper poppers, cheese sticks, & hush puppies. Everything was very good. Restaurant was clean & had a nice atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.

Stopped by here on the way home from Russellville, and I totally regret it. Absolutely the worst service ever. Sat down & waited for our meal when the cashier walked up to the table & asked for an additional $5 because HE rang the order up wrong. I argued with him because I couldn't understand why he was asking for... More
