good - same good grub as normal

hasn't changed much in the 20 years i've been going - if you have a hankering for the food at the Chicken - Freddy's burger, Tfries etc, but want more of a sit down "restaurant" feel vs. the Chicken this is a good alternative.

I was there in early July, 2015, to check it out. Many memories of our family meeting there for dinner. It is as good as ever and the same in so many ways.

Great burgers...great atmosphere...the Dixie Chicken is usually very crowded on game weekends. They serve the same food and is usually not as busy.

Went for lunch late Thursday afternoon and the food was excellent. Nice atmosphere and respite from the heat. Had BBQ and it was very tasty and sides were just right. Prices are reasonable and it isn;t so loud so you can have a conversation. Highly recommended for BBQ and lunch

Ate a late lunch at the Chicken Oil Company with the family. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. We had the chicken plate and a burger plus some kids meals, all of which were good. We will return.

This Texas burger joint has Great Food! The Death Burger or a Snuffy Special are always at the top of my list. Good food and a Texas size glass of Tea. What more do you need. The atmosphere is very Texas and very comfortable. Cool in the Summer heat and in the Winter the big fireplace is delightfully warm. Very... More

Nice place, great atmosphere, good food. Went there with a couple of friends and we had a great time. The place is quite rustic, and has lots of car plates and old posters decorating.

Love the rustic decor of this place. Reminds me of the old country cafes and steakhouses in my hometown. But the food is far from that good quality, homestyle- satisfying taste I was expecting to find at this hole in the wall joint. Burgers are made with thin, fast-food style patties and slathered in butter and for my strawberry milkshake... More

I've eaten here too many times to count, and I've never been disappointed. The atmosphere is awesome. They are known for their hamburgers, but give their grilled chicken salad a try sometime. It is very good as well.
