San Francisco-based Chicken as Cluck has opened its newest location at 5610 North IH 35, in Austin.  As the first restaurant established in the Cloud Ghost Kitchens, they’ll offer an everchanging menu of high-quality, uniquely inspired fresh fried chicken dishes for online ordering, pick-up, delivery and catering services.  The restaurant is widely known for its humorous menu names and descriptions, juicy chicken, signature “Secret AF Dipping Sauce,” and constant weekly secret menu surprises.


“Eclectic Austin is the perfect market for our second location,” said Chicken as Cluck Owner Bua Vanitsthian. “I wanted to create a funny, memorable experience for our customers, so we incorporated humor into our menu names and food descriptions. I just wanted our people to have a good time reading our menu, followed by an outstanding quality of food at an affordable price.”


The first Chicken as Cluck location opened by Vanitsthian in San Francisco in December 2019.  As a young female entrepreneur, she had to prove her restaurant strategy would work and was scalable.  A year later, Vanitsthian has achieved tremendous success and is looking to open a third location in Dallas in the Spring of 2021.  Hours of operation will be Tuesdays through Sundays, 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.


With hopes to be popular with Austinites, Chicken as Cluck is widely known for its humorous menu names and descriptions, juicy chicken, signature “Secret AF Dipping Sauce,” and constant weekly secret menu surprises.  Popular menu items include Chicken Chunks (Regular, 9-Pepper Deliciousness, and Nashville Hot); Bavarian ChurrosBig Papa PoppersNashville Hot Burritos, and Double-Dredged Fries.
