The food here is exactly what you'd expect at a fried chicken chain store. Someone needs to tell them that you cannot pre cook livers! They dry out in minutes and result in lost customers! Prices are a little higher than they should be.

Almost always order the chicken tenders but their livers are tasty too. The Tuesday special is great for carrying home after work.

They have the biggest pieces of chicken in Waco. The okra is also great. I always get great service at the drive thru. Love the sweet tea.

There are several fried chicken business's in and around Waco. Bush's however is one of the best. They have several locations but some locations are better than others. Also, quality is different depending on the time of day. Their busiest times are probably 11:00-2:00 for lunch, and 5:00-7:00 for dinner. They usually cook ahead for rush hours but if you... More

We go to Bush's regularly in Round Rock and we were very pleased to experience the same quality of food in the Waco location. The customer service is questionable, a bunch of kids that are more interested in socializing. I would revisit this location.

My first visit to a Bush's Chicken. Got a special posted at cash register: $5.00 for 1 breast, 3 wings, 2 rolls (although they just gave me 1). I ate the breast and it was nothing special, fairly tasteless, gummy flour under the crust. Brought the 3 wings home and my husband ate them for lunch next day. Won't go... More

My granddaughter and I enjoy going through the drive and getting the chicken rolls and a sweet tea after a day of shopping. It is a great quick snack and the sweet tea is delicious. It is very affordable.

Believe it or not, I ate at Bush's 3 times in the 2 days I was in Waco. The first meal I got (livers, okra, DP) was to die for - delicious. I stopped at the first Bush's Chicken that I came across on my way into town off of Hwy 31 in Bellmead. The service was fantastic as well.... More
