Three years ago we were down there and had the best catfish. So of course while visiting family we had to go back. Sad! It was a waste of time and money!

Have eaten lunch here a few times and have been pleased every time. The chicken strips are great and they have a nice selection of dipping sauces if you don't want gravy. The biscuit was awesome, melts in your mouth. The staff was very friendly, I'll be back.

I went by to the restaurant from a recommendation, and they compared it to Popeyes....... They couldn't have been more wrong. The chicken was OK, Service OK but their sweet tea was really good. I would pass on this restaurant if ever offered it again.

I went to this Chicken Express twice during a three day trip. Once around 3 p.m. for a quick meal for my daughter and once for supper on Saturday night. Both times I went through the drive thru and waited much too long. I'm not from Palestine but the Chicken Express in Port Neches, Texas (closest to me) line moves... More

Standard chicken place. Quick counter service. I have always gotten more chicken strips than what is advertised. Sweet tea is popular. Chicken can be a bit greasy at times but it has been mostly fresh. Sides are typical but good.

Normally I LOVE Chicken Express however this time there were more not so good things than good things. I was very surprised to see the usually fluffy warm roll pressed on top of pieces of fried okra on top of the gravy container. So unappetizing! My husband's roll was also smashed on the top of the gravy container so somewhere... More

My kids and I really enjoy Chicken Express, even though we don't eat there often because of the prices. The chicken is the best in Palestine, and is always the same. We always get the tenders because they are so moist and tasty. To be fair, for the price you pay, you do get a lot of food. We especially... More

Some days the food is really good and so is the service. Other times not so good. If you want a fish dinner don't come during peak hours because they sell out fast and don't restock quick enough. Should not have to wait 15 minutes for them to cook it.

The service is always good, the food is never cold, and the sweet tea is extra sweet! The chicken isn't too greasy either, which I appreciate.

Chicken Express is my No. 1 chicken stop. Large pieces, have always seemed fresh, average pricing. Fast service.
