Dueling fast-casual dining on Charleston Boulevard has created a switcheroo replacing “authentic” Philly cheese steaks with a growing brand’s “secret recipe” fried chicken.
US Fried Chicken has taken over the former Straight from Philly Steakout, next door to the Afandi Restaurant & Market at the westside’s Red Rock Plaza, close to the intersection of Charleston and Decatur boulevards.
Chicken expert A.L Sharif launched in the southwest on Pecos Road in 2017 and the new corner expansion continues the same menu of chicken box deals, wings, nuggets, beef ribs, tilapia, burgers, and salads.
Promising more local US Fried Chicken locations on the way, fans of Straight From Philly Steakout can still visit its Henderson location at the corner of Arroyo Grande Boulevard and Warm Springs Road.
US Fried Chicken, 5181 W. Charleston Blvd., Suite 110, 702-822-6360. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
