Travel and Leisure released their list of America's Best College Bars as "a toast to the mayhem of college and those bars that make it a great four years," recognizing College Station's own The Dixie Chicken.

The article reads,

Don Ganter opened this outpost of Texas A&M back in the ’70s, and it’s now run by his daughters Katy and Jennifer, both graduates. Seniors come in to dunk their school rings in mugs of beer for fun, and the tug of nostalgia draws alums back year after year. “We keep the look the same, because we want it to feel like home,” says Jennifer Ganter. Famous for its cheeseburgers, the Dixie Chicken is even better known for its mascot—a live rattlesnake. “My dad caught several a long time ago and built a snake cage for them,” says Ganter. “This current one has been here for seven years now.”
