With locations on South Congress and Burnet, Lucy's has become an Austin staple for fried chicken. Last month they opened their newest location in Lakeway boasting killer views of Lake Travis.

Like their other restaurants, Lucy's serves up much more than just fried chicken. On our visit we started off with their signature Fried Deviled Eggs - four buttermilk-breaded deviled eggs with crunchy chicken skin aioli. Here's a tip - if you don't want a full order, word on the street is you can ask your waiter for an a la carte portion. We also chose one of their specials for the day - a serving of ATX oysters, served with garlic butter, queso fresco, jalapeno salsa, pickled onion and chimichurri, which certainly packed a punch. While these oysters were on special that day, Lucy's offers a daily selection of oysters from which to choose.

Our group chose quite a variety of dishes for our main course, and each person raved about the quality of their food. From macaroni and cheese to drunken catfish, we left the restaurant happily stuffed.

Certainly no write-up about Lucy's would be complete without talking about some of the best fried chicken we've ever had. It's crunchy. It's juicy. It's everything you could ask for in a piece of fried chicken. Order it by the piece, the basket, or the bucket - you won't regret it. We managed to come away with some leftovers, and somehow it tasted even better the second day. We even whipped up some chicken and waffles using the leftovers!

If somehow you still have room at the end of your meal, Lucy's offers a variety of pies with a southern spin, like Sweet Tea or Lime, for $5.50 a slice.

Outdoor fun for kids and adults

With lake views, a fun cocktail menu, a live music stage, and a playground, the newest location of Lucy's is perfect for kids and adults alike.  Don't forget to also check out their brunch on Saturdays and Sundays!
