Chicken Fiesta goes deep-fried with new sandwich
Richmond's most important local fast-food chain, Chicken Fiesta, is making a late entrance into the chicken sandwich wars.
What's happening: The chain's new menu item is a distinct departure from the charcoal rotisserie birds at the (literal) center of its restaurants.
- The crispy, deep-fried chicken breast is topped with iceberg lettuce, tomato and a generous spread of spicy mayo.
Ned's thought bubble: As promised, it was quite crispy. And the sauce was great.
- But it mostly made me realize that what I like about Chicken Fiesta is that it's not deep-fried, making me feel like I've maybe — possibly? — made a healthier take-out choice.
- I'm sticking with the quarter chicken and a side of rice and beans.
