Austin’s answer to that fast-food fried chicken giant expands next weekend. Flyrite Chicken opens at 6539 Burnet Road on January 22. The drive-thru and dine-in restaurant is located on the lot next to Barley Swine, Lick Honest Ice Cream and Bufalina Due.
The grand opening will be marked by special giveaways, including the chance to win breakfast once a week for a year and chicken and a beer once a week for a year. The first giveaway takes place in the morning at the restaurant, with the second to follow. Flyrite, which will be open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, will also have giveaways throughout the day from neighbors like Austin Beerworks, Austin Eastciders, Apothecary Cafe & Wine Bar, Barley Swine, Bonhomie, County Line, El Chilito, Juiceland, Picnik, Tacodeli, VIA 313, and more.
Flyrite, which serves vegetarian-fed chicken raised without antibiotics, opened its first location on East Seventh Street last year.
