Flyrite Landing in East Austin on February 7th

Full disclosure: I attended a preview Tasting at Flyrite and received a complimentary meal. All opinions are my own.

Flyrite Chicken is opening their first store in their new east Austin digs at 10 a.m. on Sunday, February 7th. They will celebrate with a grand opening party the following weekend on Sunday, February 14th. Festivities will take place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will include 1 free beer with koozie to the first 300 customers of drinking age. In addition they will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the first 3 hours of operation to the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation.

Flyrite Dining Room

Flyrite aims to providing fast food you can feel good about by using all-natural ingredients to include all-natural chicken raised without antibiotics. The menu consists of delicious sandwiches & wraps, fresh salads and decadent made-to-order shakes. Their tag line \”no ingredients with ingredients\” speaks volumes. They make all their sauces like the Thai Chili, cucumber yogurt and spicy BBQ in house. The restaurant is not only better for your body but also for the planet by using compostable or recyclable packaging.

We stopped in and previewed what Flyrite has to offer and were thoroughly impressed. The menu suites most diets with warm perfectly crisp chicken sandwiches, Gluten Free friendly options, several enticing vegetarian menu items and lighter healthier options like fresh salads with grilled chicken. They also support their fellow local businesses by serving Cuvee Coffee and pouring some of Austin\’s best Texas beers to include a Hops & Grain Greenhouse. Have a growler to fill to take home? Flyrite has you covered there too.

The Standard at Flyrite

The Standard with a crispy chicken breast served on toasted whole wheat bun with homemade pickle chips and your choice of sauce. We opted for the tasty house-made Sriracha mayo.

French Fries and Sriracha Mayonnaise at Flyrite

The perfectly crisp fries made withYukon potatoes were incredibly addicting. We couldn\’t resist dipping these delicious golden fries into the Sriracha mayonnaise.

Garden Salad with Chargrilled Chicken at Flyrite

On the lighter side of things we ordered a garden salad which is a fresh mix of lettuce, sliced tomato, carrots, and red cabbage topped with moist char-grilled chicken and served with a side of house-made Asian Vinaigrette dressing.

Veggie Wrap at Flyrite

The veggie wrap tempura cauliflower was a crowd pleaser! The wrap has lightly tempura fried cauliflower rolled in a rice paper wrap with a splendid mix of lettuce, kale slaw and fresh herb mix. The Thai chili sauce goes beautifully with this wrap.

 A second location is in the works at 6539 Burnet Road and is scheduled to open this summer.
