“Awesome Chicken Fried Steak”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We dined here in May of 2014 while driving through the Corpus Christi area. The chicken fried steak was absolutely delicious. They also have excellent chocolate cake for dessert.

Reviewed 22 May 2014

Nolan's never disappoints. My husband had the chicken fried steak and I had the tenders. Everything is crispy and hot!

“Good Food, Good Service”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Three of us met there. Had Chicken Fried Steak, Oysters, and Shrimp Salad ( sort of a cole slaw with shrimp cut up in it ). I had the oysters and were excellent. I shared and the others also thought they were excellent. The others said that the chicken fried steak was good and the shrimp salad good. She said the shrimp salad had sort of a potato salad taste, perhaps the dressing. The iced tea was also excellent. They open at 11:00 am. We took our time and had a nice conversation. No loud music or other problems with a conversation here. This is a family owned restaurant. I believe there are two. Did not try the chocolate cake or carrot cake but was tempted as it looked really good.

“Ahhh Nolan's poor boys!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

I have been eating Nolan's poor boy's for over 30 years and while not the original the match is just perfect. The sandwich is just a regular poorboy but made special by the folks at Nolan's. I ate at the Airline location and the staff was absolutely the friendliest. I could go on all day but suffice to say if you want a nice casual dining experience you gotta try Nolan's and needless to say I recommend the poor boy!
