Popular restaurant chain Chicken Salad Chick has opened its first Baton Rouge location.

The fast-food restaurant opened Feb. 19 and is located off Burbank and Lee Drive near LSU's campus.

This is the eighth location in Louisiana and fourth owned by father-and-son Beau and Pete Nicolosi, who plan on opening more Baton Rouge locations in the future.

The menu features a variety of chicken salad options, along with sandwiches and salads.

LSU third-year student Taylor Mutavdzic is excited about the new location saying, "I love Chicken Salad Chick; I used to eat it back home in Mandeville all the time with my friends."

The restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. until 8 p.m.
