J.T. Youngblood’s

Throwing it back to the 1940s before Austin got weird and then subsequently lost its weirdness, this it the revamped version of the original Youngblood’s - a classic fried chicken chain in Texas. Since no one Instagrammed their meals in the 40s, it’s hard to tell if this place has accurately recreated the classic, but it is serving great Southern food in a casual environment. In addition to fried chicken, you’ll find the usual subjects like mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and a few kinds of slaw. The location in the ever-expanding Mueller neighborhood is fairly easy to get into daytime or night, which makes it a good spot for an easy lunch or dinner. If you can’t cope with wearing pants while you eat fried chicken, they have a takeout operation as well.
