Pick Your Chick™

Richards' birds are exclusively sourced from farms that adhere to the highest standards of quality and freshness

The chicken is marinated in our spiced brine for 24 to 48 hours depending on the size of the bird. 

Many spices for our seasoning are ground fresh, in house, ensuring peak flavor, aroma and color. The chicken is coated in flour and seasonings, giving it a unique exterior that's crispy and crunchy, but not heavy.

The meticulous process and freshly-ground spices give Richards' Southern Fried chicken a one-of-a-kind color that can only come from the highest-quality ingredients.

*We have several gluten free chicken options and side options.*

About the Fox

For centuries, farmers have been fighting to keep foxes out of their chicken coops. Those sneaky foxes just can't get enough of their favorite meal. Similarly, Atlantans can't get enough of Richards' fried chicken, so we chose the fox as our mascot to represent that animalistic craving. Sniff us out in the Krog Street Market - we promise we won't chase you away!
