A small chain dedicated to Nashville-style spicy chicken called Hangry Joe’s Chicken is undergoing big expansion and opening in the Alexandria Commons Mall and other locations across the region in the coming months.
Restaurant management said in a post that the Alexandria site aims to open in the old Alexandria Commons metro early next year.
“It will be at 3227 Duke Street, Alexandria, formerly of the subway,” the restaurant said in the post. “Should open early next year.
The restaurant was founded by Derek Cha, the founder of Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt, and Mike Kim. There are currently Hangry Joe locations in Ashland and Fairfax (10692 Fairfax Blvd).
As the name suggests, the restaurant specializes in chicken dishes, like a sandwich of chicken breast and cider salad on a brioche bun for $ 8.95. Other dishes include Korean chicken nuggets and the classic southern chicken and waffle dish.
The restaurant also announced plans to expand operations to Herndon, Annapolis, Short Pump, Alexandria, Kingstown, Centerville and Richmond.
