We almost always get the huge family meal with tender, biscuits and gravy. They make some good chicken here. My wife has started getting the fish and she really likes it. We probably eat here once a month and have yet to have anything that wasn't worth going back over.

Stopped for a quick bite while passing by on I-20. About 2 minutes north of the interstate. My husband had fried catfish (breaded and cooked in front of us) and I had the fried chicken gizzards. Very good food!! I like to avoid the chains because I am tired of processed, pre made food off the back of a truck.... More

I say predictable, but in a good way. The food is consistently good, Employees are always nice when we go there. They keep their booths clean. A little pricey, but so are the other chicken places. The chicken is always fresh, I guess because they go thru it so quick. Their sides are good, like mashed potatoes and gravy or... More

All their food is great. The okra is the only thing that could be fried a little longer. All the other sides are really good. We nearly always order the family sized chicken strips meal. My husband loves the mashed potatoes and gravy. My mother loves the corn on the cob.

Out of all Chicken places in town this is the best hands down. Always is fresh and hot. Also great sides to go with your chicken.

Sure the chicken is fried and juicy, but it has no flavor whatsoever! The reason it's juicy is because all you taste is the oil. Very disappointed as I heard this place had the best fried chicken. If you want the best fried chicken with loads of flavor, head over to Brookshire's. Ordered the corn on cob which came to... More

We were planning on eating at MA Allens they were closed so we opted for Gill's boy are we glad we did! The food was fast fresh and hot! Great flavor and extra crispy chicken along with very generous individual sides. Add that to the very friendly staff and we left happy and full. If you are in Sweetwater I... More

I'm in Sweetwater for work, and used TripAdvisor to find a good local place to eat. I travel a lot, and never enjoy eating at the national chains. I was in the mood for fried chicken and Gill's seemed like the best bet in town. The chicken isn't terrible, but I wouldn't say it's any better than what you'd get... More

Just had crispy chicken to go. Juicy tender meat in a super crispy crust. Excellent. Located on the main road easy to find and plenty of parking lots.

This is fast food, but the quality is very good. Great fried chicken, and also fried catfish. Don't miss the fried okra!
