“Fried chicken just like Mom's”
Review of Chicken Earl's - CLOSED

Chicken Earl's
Cuisines: American
Description: Chicken Earl's is only open on Tuesday from 11am-7pm. They have some of the very best fried chicken (pan fried like grandma used to make). Bob Phillips from Texas Country reporter recently visited and it will be on his show in October. The owners name is Earl Langley his phone number is 830 591-3768. I doubt he has an email, but anything is possible these days:)

“Fried chicken just like Mom's”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

We visited Chicken Earl's on Tuesday, 11/15. There were a few people in line ahead of us but the wait was not long at all. We placed our order and enjoyed the fried chicken at the picnic table under the oak trees. Everyone in our party was enthusiastic about the chicken and promised to return. The lady who took our order was very friendly and accomodated some of our special requests without hesitation. We bought the shirt and will absolutely return but only on Tuesdays.

“Dont let the outside fool you!”
Reviewed February 1, 2011

Chicken Earls was recently featured on Texas Country Reporter a regional show that highlights various food, music, people, and other hometown (home state) intrigues. This has saddened us because now, the word is out! :) The ramshackled establishment on wheels might frighten some away, but dont be alarmed its nice, tidy, and clean. The "seating" is outside under the trees if your lucky enough to get a spot. They are only open on Tuesdays, so they keep you wanting more and looking forward to the next week of yumminess. I have had several instances where I called to place an order and they were sold out. They had gotten all the chicken from all the stores (2) in town and still didn't have enough. Call ahead if you cant get there by 5pm.The chicken is beyond reproach it is seasoned to perfection. It is fried with the bone in (no strips)--the only way it is prepared and there are a choice of sides. I have only tried the chicken, but have heard tale that the sides are pretty good.
