The view of this restaurant is excellent able to see Lake Travis. The chicken was very god but the prices were a little much as far as sides. For a family of four to get full you will spend much more than going to KFC...More

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.

I hate leaving bad reviews- but I need to be honest. I ordered six different meals off their menu and didn't like any of them. Corn dogs typically aren't that hard to make, but I couldn't swallow this one. I think people mainly want to...More

If we are anywhere NEAR Austin while traveling, Lucy's is a mandatory stop. Very pleasant outdoor dining if you don't mind a few birds walking around on the ground. Fried chicken is awesome, of course. All of the sides are fabulous, and even things like...More
