Fried Chicken Doesn't Get Better Than This

Bush’s Chicken is a community friendly, family oriented quick-service restaurant with a pleasant dine-in experience, the industry’s fastest drive-through, and complete catering services. We offer a variety of menu items for Southern Fried Chicken lovers including boned chicken, tenders, sides, desserts, and great sweet tea.

Our sacred mission is to serve the best fried chicken in our markets. Our high quality fresh chicken, proprietary marination mixes, batter, and cooking techniques are unmatched in the industry.

Our sides include fried okra, french fries, mashed potatoes, country style cream gravy, green beans, creamy cole slaw, corn on the cob, jalapeno poppers, freshly baked yeast rolls, and macaroni and cheese.

We have worked hard to develop a reputation for great fried chicken and freshly brewed sweet tea (it’s an art), extremely fast service, cleanliness, and friendliness. We cordially invite you to give us a try.

Bush's Chicken currently has over 50 stores serving Central, South, and West Texas.

Bush's Background

Hammock Partners, L.L.C., purchased Bush's Chicken in 2005 and moved the headquarters to Austin, Texas. Jeff Hammock serves as President, and Jim Hammock as Chairman of Hammock Partners. The Hammock’s have backgrounds in the High Tech Computer industry, while Jeff Hammock has QSR owner/operations experience with a chicken concept in the Midwest.

Bush’s Chicken is committed to the perfection of providing a family friendly quick-service restaurant experience for southern fried chicken lovers.

Our many innovations include perfecting the art of tasty fried chicken, great side dishes, and sweet tea. Multiple drive-thru traffic lanes with car hop attendants provide unusually fast and friendly service. The company culture is based on the generous support of local community activities, and particularly, schools.

We are most proud of the number and quality of young people that have had great employment experiences in the Bush's system.
