The burgers here are fine; authentic beef burgers usually cooked fairly well, but definitely not anything to write home about. In addition, the prices are fairly steep for the plain offerings they have. I've been here with friends a few times, and always have to think hard about whether I want to spend the money to eat there or just... More

Recently a friend died and a number of his friends wanted to have an informal wake or visitation to fondly remember him prior to the service the next day. Because our departed friend liked the Chicken Oil Company for its cold beer and good food, I called to see if a portion of the restaurant could be reserved for this... More

Chicken Oil has the best burgers in town. Come as you are to this Bryan mainstay. The fries here are nothing to brag about but the burgers are well worth the visit.

I love Chicken Oil Co. I have for 30 yrs. My family loves it and when we have company in from out of state we always go to Chicken Oil. It's a must. All the burgers are great. The Tjuana fries are a must. The tables are as much history as all the unique trophy heads and antiques throughout the... More

This is a great place to take the family for a quality burger and fries! The atmosphere is fun, and it is always packed full during football season, and parents weekend!

After hearing many positive reviews, I came to try it myself. The atmosphere is good, lots of old time stuff on the walls. The daily special was a wrap so I got the chicken wrap (fried). It came out in a tortilla that was border line hard, and the chicken with a side of sauce. No lettuce or anything else.... More

Regardless of other reviews, first of all this is a burger place- the prices are good, and they are just good basic burgers; much better than the chain burger places college students usually go to. Food was hot- Their "Death Burger" was just as good as the ones I remember from more than 30 years ago.

Food was so so. Those Tijuana fries are just badly made cheese fries. They must have picked the best reviews to put on another review website because I was not impressed. I've had much much better bugers. Crowded, messy, ick.
