New fried chicken restaurants are set to dominate the fast-casual dining scene over the next six months, including the newly opened BB.Q Chicken in Silverado Ranch, the soon-to-launch North Town Chicken on Craig Road, and the currently paused arrival of Guy Fieri’s Chicken Guy! at the North Premium Outlets.

One of the most anticipated debuts on the horizon has now confirmed it is expanding to the westside, but fans of Dave’s Hot Chicken won’t be able sample its cult Nashville hot recipe until next year.

Taking over a 3,200-square-foot former Carl’s Jr. at the Canyon Lakes Plaza retail center, the rapidly growing brand was created in Los Angeles by former Bouchon chef Dave Kopushyan and is promising it will be a “few more months” before the restaurant and drive-thru land on Sahara Avenue.

Easy to spot and located across Fort Apache Road from Village Square, the steady progress can be partly attributed to an ongoing complete interior makeover, from flooring to ceiling tiles, the removal of non-load bearing walls, and remodeling the back of house area.

Once in place, diners can look forward to deep fried, spiced chicken prepared “in a proprietary brine,” served as sliders and tenders, plus sides of mac and cheese, kale slaw, and cheese fries.
