Chicken Express

 3 star(s)  (04/12/2014)
“Location is pretty basic. Chicken wings are good when they haven't run out of chicken( especially on Friday night). Service needs an overhaul,not very outgoing...... Prices are decent and the fish&shrimp combo is enough for 2 people.”

“We had a group of kids from Dancing with The Future Stars from Gastonia/Bessemer City Boys & Girls Club and the kids had a Ball and the food was Great!!! the prices are not bad at all, you also get a lot of food for your money. I'm planning on going back this weekend to take a group.”

“This is one of the largest Chick-Fil-A I've seen! It was very nicely decorated and clean. The food and service was excellent as it is always that way with Chick-Fil-A restaurants. If you are in the area and looking for a quick bite but not sacrifice food and service then stop by this one.”
