30+ year return to a cool restaurant/bar across the street from Texas A&M. Good food and drink, friendly staff and patrons on a Thursday night. Be sure to secure PAID parking. Our car was towed by the nearby convenience store while we were inside...to the tune of $298.00. Ended the night on a bummer...

It was packed on game day - you walk up to a counter to order your food and everywhere else is the bars - there's pool tables too (and a rattle snake window yikes!) Loads of outdoor seating too.

Don't eat anywhere else if you have one meal in College Station. The Dixie Chicken is an institution (even for non-Aggies) and is super cool for lovers of Texas honky-tonks. Behind the pool tables, there is a plexiglass cage with a 5 foot rattlesnake. The food is really good too.

Great place to eat when visiting Texas A&M. Went in for chicken but switched over to a very good old fashioned cheese burger. I really liked their choice of music, good old country.

Want a pitcher of beer - you have to take a friend as one person can't purchase one in Texas. Get a table when you come in and then get your beverages and order your food. Peak times it's crazy packed. We were in on a Friday afternoon prior to a TN - A&M football game. You can order a... More

I had heard about the Dixie Chicken and wanted to experience it the last time I was in College Station. I went for lunch. As expected, it has much more of a bar feel to it but that's fine. The food was basic but very good. The burgers are their specialty and they did not disappoint. The place is very... More

This may be a college bar in a college town, but that is no excuse for how dirty this restaurant was, smelled of urine- would not return.

We went there with a group of friend to get to know the true Texas A&M's spirit and this place won't let you down. Great local food and local beers, really a great place to spend a nice night out in College Station....must go!

If you ever visit College Station you have to go to the chicken. Game days can be crazy. But this place is a must. Great tasting chicken. Good wait staff. Good seating if you go early.

Went with some friends, great atmosphere, billiards, dominoes, and all within an old Texas Saloon atmosphere. VERY COOL! Service staff was friendly and helpful, food was great!
