Quick chicken, fair customer service, clean facility, food is average. Cost of combo meals are not competitive with similar fast food chicken restaurants.

My daughter loves the chicken strips and they are good. The sides could use some work though. We normally just get the strips and make our own sides.

Horribly disappointed. I checked out the menu after visiting the Trip Advisor site. Called to inquiry about pricing. We told we don't carry that item, ok tell me about this item...we don't carry that either. Why bother to order anything we really want??? Settled on a third option that we weren't totally happy with but could live with. Drove about... More

The chicken strips are always a favorite for our family. My favorite menu item is their fried okra, love it!

They have some of the best Catfish here in Elgin, TX, and not just for Lent. Their chicken is very good and especially when they have a coupon.

This is a great place to get Fried Fish during Lent and the price isn't too bad either. I enjoy their chicken when it just comes out of the fryer ... yummy.

Greasy Greasy Greasy... fried chicken generally is though. They generally take forever to bring your food. It's like they have to go catch the chickens first.
