I was sent to college station for work, so I reviewed a bunch of places to go while here. I agree that this is a place one must visit while here. we all had a few pitchers of beer, onion rings and chips with some sort of cheese dip (tad spicy). the music was played by juke box, I think.... More

Legendary food along with dominoes and pool who could complain?? NO ONE! We love this place and have raised our kids going here since they were babies. It was great when we were in college here but beyond that now!

As a former Aggie this place has a special place in my heart, but not for the drinking most people would think of. I loved the Chicken when I was in school. I love the food and the atmosphere. My kids have grown up going every few years and carving their names in the wood. Enjoy a slice of authentic... More

On a visit to Texas A and M we drove by Dixie Chicken and decided to go back later for dinner. It was crowded and a little loud. Not family friendly for those with little ones some patrons let the bad language fly. The food-burgers and chicken fried steak were good. My husband remarked we have now eaten there so... More

Ok let's lay it out for you. This is a bar not a restaurant. This bar attempts to serve bar food and it's not very good. If you drink enough beer and play some pool, then it will seem to be ok. As for the decor and atmosphere it is definitely an iconic tradition if you are a college student.... More

None of our food met our expectations! The burgers were junior size, Blt only had three small pieces of bacon an one tomato, buffalo chicken sandwich had one squirt of buffalo sauce and was burned sand so we're the chicken tenders !

I think it is more about the hang out for the locals than the food. It was a little loud for my tastes, and food was okay but not fantastic. Definitely not the place for healthy eating :) If you want a burger it is handy.

So, I've always heard this is the place to visit when you're in Aggieland. Well...it was ok, but not really worth the hype. We went for lunch, with the family. So maybe the best thing is to go when it's more of a bar at night. The food was average at best. Queso chips were stale. Grilled cheese was mostly... More
