On at least one Tuesday a month, I will ride my motorcycle over 200 miles round trip to enjoy their fried chicken. Try it, you wont be disappointed. But, get there early, once sold out, you are out of luck.

We love driving to Chicken Earl's on Tuesday for lunch. In our opinion he offers the best, consistently good food for miles around. Never had chicken as good as Earl's! Make the trip, you will not be sorry.

I have eaten at Chicken Earl's many time and it is very good and consistent! The atmosphere is set under a grove of pecan trees. It is located at the Frio Pecan Farm on Hwy 337 E in Leakey, Texas.

Chicken Earl's is only open on Tuesday from 11am-7pm. They have some of the very best fried chicken (pan fried like grandma used to make). Bob Phillips from Texas Country reporter recently visited and it will be on his show in October. The owners name is Earl Langley his phone number is 830 591-3768. I doubt he has an email, but anything is possible these days:)
