“Favorite Quick Lunch between Austin & Houston on 290”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2008

No, this is not fine dining. This is Giddings which hosts a number of familiar fast food options along the 290 corridor. But the Golden Chick is easily my favorite spot when I have family in tow on runs between Houston & Austin.

Most everything they serve is above average fast food. But AI highly recommend the chicken strips. They make the best of any chain I've ever tasted. The meat is always terrific as well as the frying.

If you like a little flavor boost, they hand out packets of what they call "Lotta Zing" if asked. I love the seasoning on the strips and just about anything that could use a little more pico.
