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

My family ate dinner at Lucy's Fried Chicken. It had a real relaxed atmosphere and very good food. Reasonable prices and good portions made this stop one of my favorites. We had their fried chicken and I sampled their gizzards which I really enjoyed.

Sunday afternoon visit. Great service, the waiter was very kind Food: Fried Deviled Eggs for appetizers which were very tasty and good. The fried batter is really savory. Chicken and waffles for entrée : meat very tender and moist! it was really delicious and fulfilling. We had a blast! Definitely recommend when visiting.

The food here was great. They watermelon margaritas were out of this world. Everything was a bit pricey for what you get. Service wasn't that great either

Had a early lunch on a Sunday. Two of my sons live in Austin and really like eating at Lucy's. My wife and I were visiting and needed to get a early lunch so we could leave Austin. Parking is a little tricky but adequate, easy to find. Sitting was quick and easy, three of us had the chicken tenders... More

The Resturant is a Hole in the Wall Resturant, the Staff was extremely nice... More

Loved the beer-brined chicken, but really everything was good. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the prices were reasonable.

Excellent fried chicken and some of the friendliest people on staff I've ever encountered I'm a professional chef and I was given an industry discount I didn't ask they offered. Really great experience

We got a large bucket of chicken that fed four of us easily with some left over to take home. This is more of an outdoor place than indoor which is nice on a pleasant evening. The menu is a bit pricy for chicken for a simple man like me, but higher prices go hand in hand with Austin. However,... More

My best friend and I had a pre-concert dinner at Lucy's Fried Chicken on Friday, September 23. Luckily, we found parking right in front and were seated rather quickly. We were famished from the long workday and drive from San Antonio. We promptly ordered the corn muffins. Sadly, the were served almost chilled. The buffet tequila was soft, though. The... More
