good food - typical atmosphere for Bryan/College Station

Good selection of food. You order at the counter and they call you. Typical chicken fried steak, hamburgers, etc. Reasonable price. I thought the food was good, and like the comfortable atmosphere.

Nothing special -- was expecting really good homemade food. Fried pickles were from frozen and mostly batter, no pickle flavor. Dipping sauce was unremarkable. Onion rings were greasy and not in a good way. This is NOT a chicken place. Got a grilled chicken burger with avocado and it was under seasoned, not memorable. I left full but not intending... More

This is Texana at its best. The ambience of an old Texas honky tonk, animals on the walls, all the wood, reminds me of the early 80's when I first went there. If you aren't from these parts, I suggest you try a meal here. I can recommend the deathburger, which I have been enjoying for many years, swished down... More

I had to go to Bryan to check on my property there and called some friends who live about and hour and half away to meet me at Chicken Oil. I hadn't been there in 25 years but the burgers were as good as I remembered. I can't wait to go back. I'll drive 2 1/2 hours for one of... More

Came here for early dinner with our dive team. We basically had the place to ourselves (spring break and 5pm). Kids liked the food probably a little better than the adults...but the burgers were ok. Good sweet tea and everyone really liked the cheesy fries.

It is great for locals too, but for visitors to the area (for burgers and beer) this is a must visit! We took visitors from out of the country to Chicken Oil Co. and when they came back this was the first place they wanted to eat at again. Bursting with Texas flare and incredibly good burgers with beer on... More

Not just burgers and fries! Nice selection of made when you order food in a laid back environment. My husband loves the Snuffy Deathburger. I find the 1/4 lb burger just right for me and he gets enough fries in his basket to share a few with me. The Texas Toothpicks are great. You can get a side salad and... More

The Chicken Oil Company accommodated about 50 of us for a team dinner and it went off splendidly. Very casual atmosphere and lots of room in the section they held for us. Every family got to order on our own and we didn't have a long wait at all. Great food mostly burgers. Great local option.
