Richie’s Hot Chicken arrives in Riverside, San Bernardino – Press Enterprise

Richie’s Hot Chicken, a small chain with branches in West Covina and San Fernando, is coming to Riverside and San Bernardino.

San Bernardino’s location will be at 591 N. D St., which was more recently Roger’s Burgers, but is probably best known as the longtime former home of The Mad Greek.

The Riverside location will be in a former Metro by T-Mobile store at 3970 University Ave.

The restaurant serves a small menu of hot chicken sandwiches, sliders, fillets and fries.

No timetable has been given for the opening of the two restaurants.
