“An old school favorite...”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

I love this place simply because I grew up here and it has remained a staple in Apex. If you are looking for a good piece of chicken and a buscuit that is not from a chain give them a shot.

“Good breakfast, country-style veggies, and chicken”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

This is a good place for breakfast and country-style, home-cooked vegetables and chicken. I've been coming here ever since they first opened. The place is unassuming in decor, offering just good ol' country cooking. Service is friendly and prompt.

“Don't let the looks fool you”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

If you want a great chicken breast biscuit in the morning then Dallas is for you. The inside is rough and outdated but that is part of the beauty of this place. You will always see the same folks in there ready for the the country cooking. Have never had a bad breakfast, or lunch here!

“Great country cookin'!”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

I had the best chicken biscuit ever when driving thru. The chicken is always fresh, hot, and crisp and you can tell they know how to cook to satisify a big appetite. Dallas' is not your run of the mill fast food. Growing up in rural NC, I was happy to find a great place for good old fashioned country breakfast food so close to Raleigh. Go early and go hungry.

“Enjoyable experience”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

I had the white meat chicken sandwich. Chicken quality better than Bojangles, but the fries do not measure up. Good lunch crowd that appears to be a lot of locals and repeat diners. I would recommend trying the chicken or ordering whatever specials everyone seems to be getting for the day. We are planning to go back and give breakfast a try next time.
