You laugh, but how many times have you gone to Pluckers for legitimately greasy, crunchy chicken wings? Exactly. This 20 year-old, Austin-born wing chain was started by sports fans (two UT grads with a taste for Southern cooking), and it still caters to sports fans -- both via Super Bowl-appropriate eats, and abundant suspended TV's.
I love this place! – I love Pluckers - a lot! I go there for all my special events - 5 year anniversary? Gotta go to Pluckers. I love the "fire in the hole" wings - the sauce is crazy hot & the wings are crisp and tasty. Their homemade blue cheese dressing is out of this world! And the beer specials - OMG! The only issues I have ever have has been with delivery - the food may arrive cold & usually never has enough celery sticks. But dining in has always been great. My vegetarian friend loves to go with me too - for the fried pickles & stuffed jalapenos. The staff is usually very friendly & helpful. Management has always been quick to resolve any issues & reacts very professionally.
User review by pedicam – I didn't think the burgers were good at all. I was really disappointed. But their fries were not bad. You must, however, try their fried pickles. I usually just come in for that. If you dare, try the fried twinkies, too, even at least once.
This place gets really crowded comes game days, so get here early!
I can't say enough about Pluckers! The food is fantastic; it's cooked to order so it always comes out hot, and of course, delicious! The wings are the best in town, but the vast menu gives you so many options it's hard to choose! Fried pickles anyone? Pluckers has the best atmosphere on game days and is the best place to be if you're not at the game! Not to mention the fantastic service! Great job, Pluckers! Finally, a restaurant gets it right!
Don't waste your time – I've now been to both Pluckers in Austin (I think there's just the two). The wings are ok, nothing to write home about. But the rest of their menu, although vast for a resturaunt of its ilk, is greatly lacking in quality. I hate to say that I have been to Pluckers for times (due to co workers) and each time have left disapointed. Also don't dare to go to thier north Austin location in the evening, after you wade through all the employees smoking out front you have to put up with white trash regulars how act like they own the place and dominer the wait staff. I have never left a review for any resturaunt online or anywhereelse for that matter, but I cannot rail against pluckers enough. They are classless and there food, service, and demenor, just aren't very good. STAY AWAY!!
More than just wings... – Pluckers wings are amazing, but if you haven't tried their fried pickles or the honey BBQ burger you are missing out. Pluckers menu has enough to satify everyone.
YES – Pluckers is one of my favorite restaurants in Austin. It's VERY good and relatively cheap, plus the management always treats us like royalty because we go there so often. Go there for the wings or the ribs; they have other dishes, like burgers, but they aren't that great compared to places that sell burgers exclusively. The fried pickles are a must for an appetizer. All the desserts are good, but make sure you get the fried twinkies at least once!
Best Wings in town – The wings at pluckers are awesome The fried pickles are great as well
great wings! – Best wings in town, no question! Unless it's a UT game day, expect to be seated promptly but since everything is made-to-order service can be a little slow sometimes, deliever service even slower.
