I honestly don't know how this restaurant hasn't been shut down by the health department. Very dirty inside. Horrible employees including the owner that sticks his head in once in a while. Most employees look like they are fresh out of prison. Took over 25...More

I picked up the two piece fish basket to go along with a side of Mac and Cheese. The fish was crispy and tasty. The fries were just ok...unevenly cooked and not very hot. The Mac and Cheese was very good. Service was so so....More

We love driving thru Golden Chick on our way to our Townhome at Nemo. Our food is ALWAYS hot and they give you large side dishes. They have a good selection of menu items and the price is very affordable. We LOVE their fried chicken!!!

This is a great place to get some fried chicken to go on the way to the beach. It is close to Schlitterbahn so you can get your pick-nik to take to the water park.

Taking a break from water park, stopped next door at this location. Food is great but service is HORRIBLE! No guidance nor customer service. They would be a five star but service really makes a difference. Cashier seemed bothered to take our order.

Basically a fast food spot with aging interior but good food. The fried chicken, chicken gumbo, and beans and rice are all very good. Most people take away. Drive thru service available and fairly fast service.
