My wife has been raving about this place for months. So she took me here last night. It was absolutely delicious. The chicken was tender and full of flavor. All the flavors come together wonderfully highly recommend it

Chicken barritos, mexican fare is very good. Restraunt could use a bit of cleaning or refreeshing as it very dated. Popular for the locals and has limited seating. I will go again.

Good yummy chicken and mexican food for the budget minded. Wish it was a little cleaner..it does it messy due to limited seating and large crowds during lunch. I do recommend.

This is our family's favorite chicken place. It is cooked on a rotisserie after being marinated overnight. It is moist and delicious. Great beans, fresh salsa and cole slaw too. We really enjoy the food and the friendly service. There are a few tables/chairs inside the store but most of the business is take-out.

The chicken is very fresh along with the fresh veggies. The place is small and busy. We always "take out" and its still hot and and fresh when I get home. The service is good and fast. The salsa's are homemade and spicy mmm. If you want a fast lunch/dinner at a great price this is your place. See you... More

We ordered the burrito and the chicken tacos. We loved the taste. The mexican rice was a different approach and a little oily but everything was excellent. I would go back. A lot of the locals go here and the drive thru was packed. They close early though and I would recommend taking it to go as the area does... More

This is essentially a take out restaurant (very limited seating). they have very good rotisserie chicken which they chop up while you wait. They make chicken tacos and burritos and salads also. I love the tacos!

Chicken Express turned out to be a hidden gem. Fed the whole family for less than $20. The 8 Piece family pack was probably the best value food I've ever had. The kids loved it too. The chicken was moist, flavorfull and we got plenty of it. The only downside was the nasty neighborhood it sits in. I would suggest... More
