mean bird shop at 2227 w main st now open for dinner! 5:00-10:30 pm 7 days a week
Thank you RVA for the warm welcome at our Grand Opening! As it turns out, Richmond is incredibly hungry for Mean Bird chicken! Our first night at the new shop far outpaced the busiest events we've done with the food truck (festivals with an attendance of 40,000+ people), and we are so flattered! To ensure the highest quality of our bird and reasonable wait times, Mean Bird will be open for dinner from 5:00 pm to 10:30 pm (or until the bird runs out) for the time being. Stay tuned to our instagram and facebook feeds for the latest updates.
At our new shop, located at 2227 W Main St, you can expect fried chicken and vegan fried chicken (in meals or BUCKETS), sandwiches, tried and true sides from our truck menu, and some new cuts like gizzards and livers for our die-hard chicken fans. Seasonal specials will remain a staple, plus housemade limeades and fountain sodas.
In addition to our fried chicken, our small market is stocked with a fun selection of locally made goods and garbage like prepackaged candy and snacks, including a lovingly curated chip wall.
We are an all takeout shop, so be prepared to take your chicken on a picnic or back home.
So much love and thanks to all our Mean Bird regulars! We would not have made it this far without you!
