Sulphur, Louisiana – Golden Chick, a restaurant chain with roots in San Marcos, Texas, has announced the opening of a new location in Sulpur, Louisiana. Founded in 1967 by Howard and Jacque Walker, the restaurant, originally known as Golden Fried Chicken, quickly gained fame for its mouthwatering fried chicken and biscuits. Golden Chick also serves favorites including seafood, sandwiches, salads, and sides.

According to their website, the Golden Chick Sulphur restaurant will be located at 251 N Cities Service Hwy, between the Sulphur Walmart Supercenter and Dollar General. Golden Chick also has a location planned in Lake Charles on Hwy 14, just North of Big Lots.

Over the years, Golden Chick has expanded significantly, growing from 39 to over 175 units across 5 states. One of the pivotal moments in its journey was the introduction of the iconic Golden Tender in 1985. Made from whole chicken tenderloin, marinated for 24 hours, hand-battered, and cooked to perfection, the Golden Tender has become known as the filet mignon of chicken.

The restaurant’s dedication to quality has not gone unnoticed, with accolades such as Zagat recognition for its Chicken Salad Sandwich in 2016 and being identified as a top 200 U.S. brand by Nations Restaurant News in 2017.
