Canasta’s Chicken Appears to be Moving into Stratford Hills

Why did the chicken cross the road? To open another restaurant and roast it’s kind over charcoal flames is the obvious answer.

The picture above was taken a week or so ago but today I noticed that more signage has gone up. I taking this as a sign that we’ll soon have two chicken places right next to each other. Canasta’s is going into the old Dickey’s BBQ in the Stratford Hills Shopping Center and will be right next to America’s Best Wings. Emails about a possible opening date have gone unanswered.

Canasta’s Chicken has one other location at 5235 S Laburnum Avenue. It looks to be very similar to Chicken Fiesta but leaning much more towards the Peruvian side of things were as Chicken Fiesta leans more Tex-mex. The full menu can be found here.

We’ll keep an eye out and update with an opening date if we find one.

In the past when downtown lit up for the holidays it was a big event downtown. Due to Covid-19 that big event is not happening. The main event RVA Illuminates is going virtual and can be seen on ABC 8 News this Friday with performances and music.

Venture Richmond is hosting its own event, Holiday Lights on the Riverfront on Brown’s Island and along the Canal Walk to Brown’s Island from 6-8 PM on Friday.

​When downtown RVA lights up for the holiday season, Brown’s Island and the Turning Basin on the Canal Walk will join in the cheer and help the City of Richmond kick off the season with Holiday Lights on the Riverfront, a display of decorative lights that is open and FREE to the public! Enjoy vendors Espresso-A-Go-Go and Curbside Creations and family entertainer Jonathan the Juggler on Brown’s Island or take a festive stroll along the Canal Walk to the Turning Basin. Presented by Venture Richmond. Please practice safe social distancing. Parking is available at the American Civil War Museum ($), Belle Isle parking lot, and on-street parking along 2nd and 5th Streets.
