I picked up the two piece fish basket to go along with a side of Mac and Cheese. The fish was crispy and tasty. The fries were just ok...unevenly cooked and not very hot. The Mac and Cheese was very good. Service was so so. There were a lot of folks working behind the counter, but took a bit to... More

My husband and I love chicken livers and rather than drive to the other side of Corpus Christi (we live on the Island), we decided to try this place and were not disappointed! They cook them while you wait, so you know it is fresh, and you have a choice of a half order or full order. They offer your... More

We love driving thru Golden Chick on our way to our Townhome at Nemo. Our food is ALWAYS hot and they give you large side dishes. They have a good selection of menu items and the price is very affordable. We LOVE their fried chicken!!!

Huge menu. Fair prices. We had the daily special, 12 pieces of chicken, 2 large sides and 6 rolls for $19.76 What a deal. Chicken was very good as were the cole slaw and mashed potato sides. Very informal, but it was clean and service was great and friendly staff. Will be back.

This is a great place to get some fried chicken to go on the way to the beach. It is close to Schlitterbahn so you can get your pick-nik to take to the water park.

Taking a break from water park, stopped next door at this location. Food is great but service is HORRIBLE! No guidance nor customer service. They would be a five star but service really makes a difference. Cashier seemed bothered to take our order.

Basically a fast food spot with aging interior but good food. The fried chicken, chicken gumbo, and beans and rice are all very good. Most people take away. Drive thru service available and fairly fast service.

We visited here on a short beach vacation and my son asks me frequently when we'll get to go back. Very good fried chicken...

This was a regular stop when we went to Padre Island and when it was Golden Chick. The building is the same and the location is the same however the new business is Good N Crisp Chicken and it too is very good. Would recommend it highly.

If you're looking for a good piece of fried chicken, you can't go wrong. The fries are made to order and they also serve fried okra and onion rings.
