Austin’s fried chicken game is strong, despite being the home of really amazing barbecue. The comfort food works well for takeout dinner, a quick snack, or even an outdoor picnic. It even inspires other dishes, like chicken and waffles.

The city’s fried chicken styles range from the traditional, like from homegrown Lucy’s Fried Chicken or Memphis-born chain Gus’s Fried Chicken, hot chicken spot T22, an elegant take from Mattie’s, Korean fried chicken from Seoulju, to many others.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant/truck is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants/trucks themselves.

For chicken wings, check out Eater Austin’s dedicated map. For more general takeout options, scope out Eater Austin’s takeout and delivery package and the running guide, as well as the ongoing restaurants with pop-up markets list.

A number of Austin restaurants have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
