WINNA WINNA CHIKIN DINNA! Much more than fried chicken! The fried yard bird is the obvious choice but do not let that scare you away if you require a more healthy choice. They also offer a "JBG summer salad", fresh shucked and grilled oysters, and...More

Good southern fried chicken and comfort sides. This was a great end to our trip to Austin. It was great atmosphere, service and food.

Great fried chicken, outdoor or indoor seating. Just watch for the crows when outside they enjoy chicken also. Great service and a lot of options in the menu.

It felt good to have dinner in the patio. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Fries chicken is obviously what you are here for and it won't disappoint you at all. But my special mention goes to the onion rings: amazing.

We were here for a SXSW event just before dinner time and decided to try a bucket of bird. Was very good, better than expected given how massively crowded the place was. We sidled up to an outside bar and the bartender created some eating...More

During our daughter's spring break trip to San Antonio we had to make our own stop for some tasty chicken and fixins. I by chance ordered the watermelon margarita and wasn't disappointed. We always visit Lucy's whenever in the area. Warning...the chicken is pricey
