Nashville Hot Chicken Loaded Potato Wedges Are A Mouthful of What We Love

The South can’t possibly ever get fried chicken wrong. It’s fact further strengthened by the things they’re doing over at Richard’s Southern Fried in Atlanta, Georgia. There, expect a bird that’s marinated in a special spiced brine anywhere from 24 to 48 hours, depending on its size. A number of their spices are even ground fresh in house to ensure freshness and peak flavor.

Factor in them winning best chicken & waffles and best chicken sandwich in Atlanta and you get an idea of just how good their hot chicken is.

While on a quick trip to the ATL, we stumbled upon some deliciousness they’re serving up that we simply couldn’t ignore: hot chicken loaded potato wedges drenched in a spicy queso and topped with a cooling crown of sour cream. The description itself is a mouthful and so is the dish itself — not that we’re complaining. It’s definitely a worthy switch-up from the typical iterations of hot chicken that have been dominating our IG feeds lately.

McDonald’s Hong Kong Does Square Patties & Potato Wedges for World Cup


First it was fancy fry boxes. Then it was country-inspired sandwiches. Now McDonald’s is continuing the World Cup-themed cavalcade in Hong Kong, with a limited time menu that includes three kinds of chicken wings, potato wedges, orange fruit punch, and a four-patty spicy beef cheeseburger.

Mickey D’s tribute to Spain, the Spicy Beef Burger comes topped with cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, and the aforementioned square slices of beef, though we’re not sure what any of it has to do with Spain. The spice is courtesy of Malagueta chili sauce, which Brand Eating reports is actually more common in Brazilian cuisine than Spanish.


What is exciting, though, regardless of origin, are the other limited-time offerings. Not only does the McWings Platter includes flavors like Pickled Chili and Crispy Garlic, but the orange punch is practically a nonalcoholic sangria, and the fried potatoes come in wedge form instead of our boring old French julienne. Sure they’re still just potatoes, but the fact that we can’t get them here is still enough to make me go, “WANT.”
