Chicken Express, New In My Town
Got a new one in town and it's a bit of drive, but I'm willing to drive for good fried chicken. The couple of reviews I've seen raved about the tenders, and while I love tenders, I'm a breast guy and my wife can dismantle a wing in record time. Seems like they're from Mineral Wells and have been around Texas and some surrounding staes since the late 80's. I'd like all opinions, even though we're sure to take a drive to check it out and form our own opinions. I also read some good reviews on a couple of sides and the iced tea.
I like the idea of fresh, not frozen bird.
Eh, it is (wait for it, you know it's coming) what it is - fast food fried chicken. Nothing remarkable in any way, though I hear their tea is worth buying by the gallon. (A concept which offends my thrifty, Luzianne-loving nature.)
If you have a Babe's, I'd stick to that if you're in the mood for no-brainer fried chicken.
My very first real job had slim food offerings nearby, and I'd go to Chicken Express on a regular basis. Since this location was kind of a truck stop, I billed it to my coworkers as a 'cultural experience' ;) I always got the chicken tenders ... it is critical to eat them fresh and hot. Don't let them sit ... that kills the Chicken Express goodness.
The most extraordinary event happened here in Kerrville...the KFC CLOSED!! and Chicken Express is going into the space. While we've had Churches for some time, now we are getting a CE as well as a Popeye's. I like Churches, but will try the others just for comparison. Agree with James about the "sides". Most are just fillers, but I seem to remember Popeye's having killer red beans and rice. I think I had CE once, maybe somewhere on my way to Tyler, but it must not have been worth remembering, as I can't.
Ate some ages ago, but can't recall how good it was.The two that are nearest to me are in New Braunfels and Seguin.Here in Schertz we have Bush's Fried Chicken, plus KFC-Taco Bell, and Bill Miller's BBQ, a local chain sells fried chicken.We are getting a Raising Cane Chicken Tenders ,which they are building across from the Walmart on 3009.
All they do according to their website is chicken tenders period. And if if that's not enough chicken places, across the street on the Walmart side is a Wingstop too boot!
