When traveling I really try to avoid fast food & chains- this is both but they have really good- cooked to order- chicken livers served with good southern gravy & a biscuit. They have chicken, strips, fish & a variety of sides too. When we were there the ice tea was not good- funny wang, but there was no problem... More

Stopped for overnight in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, following long day's trip through heavy stormy weather. Power outage had most places shut down including my hotel. When power returned late, I ventured out to forage for dinner. I found Chicken Express still open and what a pleasant surprise. Although they were preparing to close (not sure if they have late drive through... More

Service is OK. If the chicken/fish, fries are right out of the fryer then food is good. If food has been sitting out for long, it looks and tastes greasy. There are better places to dine in Arkadephia.

This is THE place to go for crispy fried chicken - the tenders are the best! The struggle between buttery crumbly biscuits and soft baked rolls decisions is tangible! Add that ever-present cup of peppered gravy and you've got a Southern meal! What? We need to choose side items too?? I'm gonna pass out now *drool*. So good! Eat it... More

We went here to get a fast meal while on the road. The food was good, prices were very reasonable, and service was fast and friendly. I got the chicken strips and my husband got the 2 pc meal. Both were good and plentiful. Mine came with 1 side, biscuit and gravy, 4 large strips for less than $8. Chicken... More

I noticed this Chicken Express was open for business in Arkadelphia, and I don't recall it being here before. The restaurant is right next to Stuckey's, which has been in Arkadelphia for many years. It's located at the junction of Highways 8, 26, and 51, just west of the junction with I - 30, exit 73, which is the Arkadelphia... More

This is a great family environment and if you like fried chicken you are in luck. It's busy and loud but tasty.

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
