Now the setting is very "Barbecue-ish", but the food is really good. The chicken is done rotisserie style, but it is cooked with real wood, making a great tasting meal. Not only is the chicken good, but the sides are as well. Not your typical frozen out of the box sides. Even the cobbler is very good.

Nice, casual, family-oriented, counter style restaurant that specializes in rotisserie-style chicken. The place has been written up inthe NY Times as being a top bbq chicken joint, and definitely fits the bill. The prices are very family friendly and the sides, which range from fried okra to twice baked mashed potatoes, are very good. Simply put, if you're looking for... More

The place was crowded, but orders were processed quickly and food was well prepared. It is mostly a younger crowd, and pretty noisy. It is a good value for a quick meal.

WoW what a great place for casual dinning. Great chicken, great sides, and good speed to the table. Friendly for kids. Once you have eaten Cowboy Chicken you have set a new standard for what fire roasted spit chicken is all about. Not really any issues about this restaurant, but just short of a 5. I would recommend to anyone... More

The only thing keeping me from giving this place 5 stars was the cleanliness. It wasn't very busy when we visited yet the staff could not clear dirty plates from the tables and there was food on the floor very close to where we were sitting. When our food was brought to us, the guy (Manager I think) actually stepped... More

This place offers rotiserrie chicken plates which it is healthy. Their chicken is moist & tasty. The only reason i rated it 4 is because i like to be served rather than do it myself.

Living here in Allen Cowboy Chicken has become a dinner time staple. It is amazing. If you visit on a nice day its a lot of fun to sit outside on the oversized picknic tables and enjoy the ambiance. They did a wonderful job picking the location of this restraunt, with there being a couple of ice cream/yogurt sops nearby,... More

There is nothing better than nice moist chicken spiced to perfection, fast and friendly service. If you are a big fan of chicken skin you will like this place, it's cooked perfectly without being dried out. The price is decent too.
