Don't expect go get chicken nuggets here - their Tenders are slices of real chicken breast. Or you can order whole pieces if you'd rather. All good, as are the sides. Our favorite side is the corn nuggets, try them. But never buy fish in a place that specializes in chicken. Ours was a dry and tough catfish fillet. How... More

I bought the "Sunday Special", chicken strips with two sides, rolls and a gallon of tea. At the drive-thru, the person didn't know what the special was or the price. The mashed potatoes were so salty, that we had a couple of bites and threw them away. The chicken strips were fresh and the rolls were good.

Chicken Express is very predictable as to the quality of the food and the price. Like all chain restaurants they stick to a very strict menu. The service and food have always been good and the location here in Burnet is always clean. Good place when in a hurry or with a family.

We stopped here looking for a quick chicken strip meal on the way home and got half old chicken strips that were dried out from sitting under the warmer and half decent chicken strips that were OK....but in no way fresh. We go to Chicken Express probably once every couple months, but this is our first time at the Burnet... More

this is a chain, so it's just what you'd expect. The chicken was good, the okra,too. The catfish was not to my liking, but some people might like a little bit of fish with a lot of cornmeal. Now, the pickles. Oh. I love me some fried pickles! But theirs are an abomination to southern cooking.

Yes, the place does have fried catfish in addition to typical chicken combos, but does almost every place in Texas, including the local "quick stop". At best the food is mundane and average and not up to usual standard of other "fast" chicken places. To this store's credit, it is always very clean. And other redeeming feature is they have...

If you like fried foods (every once in a while or all the time) you will love this restaurant. The fried chicken and/or chicken tenders are juicy and flavorful and the breading is delicious. Fried jalapenos and fried pickles are tasty sides. This chicken is good hot out of the fryer, at room temperature or cold. Can't beat it!
