If you want something different, this is it. Burgers are ok but the cheese fries are slamming. Building is what makes this place have its charm and massive appeal. Friendly and relax atmosphere. Stop by if in town and get you a burger

We went with a large group and picked Chicken Oil over Dixie Chicken because of the TA reviews. Chicken Oil is a nice, kitschy "rustic" place that does burgers quite well. The prices are reasonable, and the burger is pretty good. I think if we had been drinking (like everyone else in the bar), things likely would have been a... More

Chicken Oil Company is a really neat place to go and hang out. The food is consistent. The wait is never long, however it is standard American cuisine. Burgers, Chicken, salads, that sort of thing. It's not out of this world, but you will get a good meal. The reason I go back is for the atmosphere. There is always... More

First off, love the atmosphere. Cool old decor. TVs around for sports fans. Staff was very friendly. Food was okay at best. We got a chicken fried steak and a hamburger and "average" is as good as I could give it. Probably will not return.

The chicken oil co is a large wooden shack that's situated on a bombed out Parking lot in Bryan Tx Usually you would Describe such a place by next saying it's not much to look at but that is not the case here. It's an awesome place to look at. Think of a whole place decorated with what you would... More

Located in a very log cabin, rustic building - I would give the atmosphere a large plus. Most popular item is the burger and fries and the burger is very good.

If you are in Aggieland-that's College Station, home of Texas A&M University to the in enlightened, you have to Stop at Chicken Oil Company for lunch or dinner. You can spend hours looking at everything hung on the walls or hanging from the ceiling but the extensive menu will make choosing what to eat tough! Try the huge double meet... More

I've eaten here several times. Burgers are always good but a little overpriced. The pitcher of beer seemed a little flat.
