    I'd say err on the side of ordering one of everything on the menu. How weird is that Austin? Probably not that weird when their chicken saves souls.

    If it's your first time, eat the chicken. Also, if you're only ordering chicken, it comes out in about sixty seconds. Nice!

    Fun little place with pretty good chicken- if with a group, get the bucket. Not the best in town, but certainly a solid chicken.

    Actually really good fried chicken. Though I think the fried chicken is a lot more overrated than people would like to admit.
