I love Chicken Express -- but not this one.

I've been several times thinking it'll be better -- I'm wrong.

Not only does the service suck b/c the "Kids" are in there running it, they always screw up our order or bill, but I have yet to get anything that isn't soggy and COVERED (Literally dripping)with grease. I know it's FRIED chicken, but can't they drain it like everyone else does?

And what's with the soggyness? Isn't supposed to be CRISPY?

Sometimes the chicken is done, sometimes not.

Also, it doesn't taste near as good as other Chicken E's -- very bland and boring.

Plus, I have never gotten fresh food unless I've had to wait 30 minutes or more on it.

It's a chicken place -- not rocket science. They need to shape up quite a bit.

Till then, I'll be going elsewhere.

known for their "sweet" tea. the chicken strips are terrific. friendly staff, especially if you get one of the older folks instead of the kids.

food is fresh, and most of the time things like okra are cooked to order so it's not greasy.

I love Love this palce. It is just a little hole in the wall kind of place, but the food is awesome, and the margaritas are to die for. They are always packed, so if u go be prepared to wait or even sit out on the patio! Its not a fancy place so if u ...

Great service. Wonderful food. We go for the crab legs and shrimp. If you ask, you can get cartoons for the kids instead of the droll of sports. Nice place!!! Worth the drive.

Tatiano's is my favorite restaurant in the DFW area for Italian food. The owners and their staff are outstanding in every aspect. I have been going there for years and will continue for many more. The food is fabulous and I just can't get enough.
