Chicken Fiesta came out of nowhere to the Richmond restaurant scene, and doesn't disappoint! Excellent, tender, juicy roasted chicken, meaty ribs, good sides, fair price! There is nothing else like it in RVA!

I love this chicken. The place smells so good when you walk in. I usually get takeout and can barely wait to get home. Love the beans - not just your usual refried beans, and the yucca dipped in the two sauces is soooo good!

Visiting Richmond and stumbled upon this gem! We smelled chicken the day prior as we drove by but only realized it was coming from here after we walked in. The tacos were delish, as was the Fiesta Salad. Portions are generous. The ribs looked amazing, next time! Very clean. This place is more fun than a piñata!

We have been several times and nearly everything is fabulous! Ribs were top-notch this time along with the chips and guacamole. I wasn't too impressed with the chicken chimichanga (should have gone with steak) and my wife loved the half-chicken (ribs and half-chicken combo is a great deal!)

I have eaten at Chicken Fiesta since it first opened. They all know me, my family, friends, and coworkers, because i visit so often. One coworker said it was so good that even the side of beans brought a tear to his eyes. Everything is good. The half chicken combo is my go-to. Try the yuca. Fried plantains with sour... More

My bestfriend suggested this one day after going to the park with her kids. It is very reasonable and a good place to get great food for a great price.
