I have eaten at Chicken Fiesta on Midlothian once or Twice a week for five years. They offer a wide choice of Southwestern foods. While they have really good standard fare, they also have a lot of healthy choices. I usually get the charcoal chicken and two small salads as my sides. It is always delicious and served with a...

I love Peruvian food, and my husband raved about this place. I think I may have ordered the wrong thing, because my chicken was dry in my tacos. I tried my husbands ribs and chicken and they were delish. I'm not one to eat pinto beans, but theirs were excellent. I will definitely be back, but will be ordering much... More

Chicken Fiesta is a casual eating establishment with excellent food and awesome prices. The ribs and rice are excellent choices and I would highly recommend. There is a bakery next door which is worth-well to visit, too. Dinner hours can be crowded but the service is friendly and moves people through quickly.

Pretty much sums it up. I love this place and have visited all three locations. The girls working at the register are awesome too. Of course the chicken is my favorite but i also love the fried yucca, steak, nachos, Fried ice cream :) It's just great!

This is their family-sized (supposed to be for 4) platter of food, which includes rotisserie chicken, smoked ribs, grilled steak, rice, beans, salad/coleslaw, and yucca/fries/tortillas. I recommend the coleslaw and yucca (which are *like* VERY thick-sliced french fries if you haven't heard of yucca). It is $50 for this platter, but it seriously includes a lot of food. We have...

Visited with the family and had Mexican food and chicken with nachos. 4 people ate for $50. Nice but not fancy you have to order at the counter. There is adequate seating inside and they do cater and do takeout.

We had a terrible commute home and needed a quick take-out dinner and stopped by here around 6pm one weekday. Excellent, friendly & efficient service. Price for the amount of food you get can not be beat; we ate on it for two nights! $21 for two half-chicken dinners, rice, beans and yucca fries. The only negative? Lots of styrofoam... More

No matter what you pick you won't regret it. I had never had Yuca before and they were kind enough to provide a sample before we placed our order. It was awesome. I enjoyed the grilled tacos which were as good or better than any sit down Latin American restaurant that I have been to for a great price. My... More

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!
