Tumble22 (7211 Burnet Rd)

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Tumble22 in Austin, Texas, and boy, was it an experience worth sharing! If you're a fan of hot chicken, this place is an absolute must-try.

Now, I consider myself someone with a pretty high spice tolerance, and let me tell you, the spiciest level they offer at Tumble22 was just perfect for me. It wasn't painfully hot, but it had that incredible depth of flavor that I crave in hot chicken. But here's the cool part: if you're not into the intense heat, don't worry! They've got lower spice levels that still pack that fantastic flavor punch.

But the star of the show, of course, is the chicken itself. It's unbelievably moist, making every bite a juicy delight. And let's not forget about the fries – they're skinny and crispy, fried to absolute perfection. And those potatoes on the side? They just round out the meal so beautifully.

To top off this amazing culinary journey, I indulged in a slice of pecan pie. Let me tell you, it was the perfect way to end the meal, and the value for what I got was absolutely fantastic.

Tumble22 in Austin, Texas, is my new go-to for hot chicken, and I can't wait to go back for another unforgettable dining experience.

Happy Chicks (6425 Burnet Rd)

My recent visit to Happy Chicks in Austin, Texas, left me seriously impressed! I opted for the Happy Chick meal, which came with a side of fries, and I couldn't resist ordering some extra fries on the side.

Let me tell you, those fries were an absolute delight. They were crispy on the outside and had that perfect tender and juicy quality on the inside. I mean, what more could you possibly ask for in a fry?

The whole experience was made even better by their quick service – they had my order ready in no time. The staff were not only quick but also incredibly friendly, making my visit all the more enjoyable. Plus, the restaurant was spotlessly clean, which is always a big plus.

Speaking of convenience, parking was a breeze here. The only thing to note is that this location is on the smaller side, but it's perfect for a to-go order. And trust me, they don't mess around with the "quick" part – be ready because they'll have your order ready before you know it.

Now, the tenders meal I ordered was generous enough to share, but I'll confess, I devoured it all by myself – it was just that good! Oh, and don't get me started on the sauces; they added a fantastic flavor boost to the meal.

Happy Chicks in Austin, Texas, definitely won me over with their fantastic food, friendly service, and quick turnaround. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
