You’ve got even more options on dining and supporting FeedMore this year with Richmond Restaurant Week.
We are excited to introduce a new way for our community to experience RRWeek! We are putting YOU, the dining guest, in the drivers seat. Choose your restaurant, choose your dining location, and choose your donation amount. You get the same exceptional cuisine, our restaurants get support and promotion, and Feed More gets to provide more hunger relief to our community. It’s an all around big win for the Richmond community. Are you excited to join us?!
FIRST, CHOOSE YOUR RESTAURANT(S)
With over a two dozen local restaurants participating, you are sure to find a longtime favorite or brand new love to explore and taste. Each restaurants’ menu will vary depending on their current offerings. There won’t be any special meals for RRWeek, but there will still be loads of incredibly delicious fare to choose from.
SECOND, CHOOSE YOUR DINING LOCATION
Each restaurant’s locations will vary, but you may have the option to eat inside, al fresco, or opt for take out or delivery. Spruce up your weeknight meal with delivery, plan a social distanced weekend event, or grab takeout and enjoy a picnic outdoors! The options are endless.
THIRD, CHOOSE YOUR DONATION AMOUNT
Finally, when you make your order, don’t forget to add a donation to Feed More! Each participating restaurant will have $5 donations available on their online menu for the duration of RRWeek. A $5 donation provides up to 20 meals for a neighbor in need. Feeling generous? Toss a few fivers in the cart and help Feed More give even more to our community’s most vulnerable populations.
There are over 50 restaurants participating so no matter what you’re craving there is a restaurant for you.
Go Bird Drive-thru Now Open
If you want tenders and fries and not much else this is the spot.
The Drive-thru line was pretty long when I drove by at 12:30.
Go Bird has one other location in Portsmouth. The Richmond one is located at 6801 Forest Hill Ave in the old Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s a straight-up to-go place offering chicken tenders and fries. It mixes things up a little with a few sauces (Homemade Ranch, Bird Sauce, Frank’s Hot Sauce) but as you can see the menu is refreshingly simple. Yes, that is the full menu you see below.
