Richmond chicken worth giving a cluck: The Cocky Rooster
Fast food chains across America are going all-in on chicken nuggets, hoping to lure millennials and Gen Zers who favor an on-the-go style, Axios' Jennifer A. Kingson writes.
My thought bubble: Forget nuggets. Tenders are where it's at.
My go to is Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken on Broad. Their strips are reliable, come with a biscuit and aren't super expensive — $6 gets you two strips, and they almost always put an extra in the box.
- And yeah, it's a chain restaurant. But it's also the only location in the state, so whatever.
If you're looking for a high-end tender, try The Cocky Rooster, with locations on Main Street in the Fan and Short Pump.
- A two-piece combo with fries and a coke comes out to more than $17 after tax and tip, but they're crispy, juicy and come with an extensive array of sauces and dips to choose from.
