Ordered food at drive up. Took it home without checking. (my bad). Ordered side of okra missing. Side of cole slaw not edible. It had been over sweetened with we think a non sugar sweetener. The roll had also been over sweetened. We like sweet...stuff so please trust me when I say over sweetened. At least the chicken and mashed potatoes were good.More

This was the best fried chicken! The cut was generous, the meat was tender and moist and the breading was exceptionally crisp. My husband had mashed potatoes with gravy which he thought was great, and he was particularly impressed that it needed neither salt nor...pepper. I had fried okra which was crisp and good, and fried pickles which I don't know how they normally taste, but dipped in Ranch, these were good. Some folks at a nearby table had fried fish, and even stuffed to the gill, it looked really good!More

My wife ordered the chicken. I ordered the 5 piece catfish dinner. Everything arrived brought to our table piping hot by Chris who I took to be the owner. I received 5 whole catfish fillets I could finish two. Tuns out Chris is the manager...but he treated us as if it were his personal enterprise. We will try more chicken express restaurants. You should too.More

Orders came with one side dish unless you opt not to have drink. Ordered 2 chicken strip dinners one had 2 sides and the other only had 1. Forgot the mashed potatoes. Partially my fault for not checking. Simple, 2 orders and no drinks get...2 sides. I will pull over and check from now on. Would have given 3 stars but for that. Food was average. Okra was tough. Gravy was thicker this time and pretty decent. Chicken and potatoes we did get were ok. By the way their fried fish is very good.More

The chicken is excellent. My grandchildren usually "order" that when I eat lunch with them at school. Everything I have tasted at this Chicken Express is good. I have not been inside in quite a long time as I usually use the drive-up window. Staff...is usually very friendly.More

Went to Chicken Express to eat before my son's football game. Everything on the menu looked so good! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food that we ordered was good and the price was reasonable too!

I love chicken! Love it (NOT supposed to have it, but...) I only gave it 3 stars because they water down the gravy. I know, not suppose have that either. But on vacation do rules apply? We were in a hurry to get home so...we ran thru for a quick lunch. The staff was good, the chicken good the fries so-so. I was disappointed in the gravy Anyway I would still go cause I love chickenMore

Most people don't know it, but the fish at Chicken Express is really good. Better than their chicken, IMHO. I had to wait for it to be cooked today, which was fine. Chicken Express is always about the same everywhere. Its pretty good fast food....The staff was friendly and food was good.More

Usually we love Chicken Express and stopped here on our way to Lubbock. There were a max of 4 people already eating when we placed our order. We waited.... and waited while at least 5 people came in, ordered and got food. We got our...money back (we had not even received drinks) and left. Wish I could award a 0 because a 1 is being too generous.More
