Bertie's Hot Chicken is a personal passion of founder Rick Boyd. A native East Texan, his ancestors came to the Lone Star state from Tennessee and Mississippi at the turn of the 20th century.  His love of fried chicken began early in his life. His grandmother's cast iron skillets bubbling away with breaded cuts of fresh chicken from their own farm were what Sundays were all about.

As Rick grew older he developed he missed those Sunday dinners with it's fresh hot fried chicken, collard greens, her baked Mac and Cheese and lots of hush puppies.  He wanted to bring that back and share it with the world.

Today Bertie's Hot Chicken serves of a version of his grandmother's fried chicken and a little bit extra, that sweet heat from Music City USA. Bertie's Hot Chicken is the hottest thing in the Fast Casual segment and is ready to spread that love across the globe. 

We all deserve the comfort of a great piece of fried chicken and a plate of oozy, gooey Mac & Cheese. It's our mission to serve it up with all the Southern hospitality that goes along with it.




We take our chicken very seriously. It's brined in our secret recipe then dredged in seasoned flour before being fried to crispy perfection. Juicy, bursting with big flavor and unlike any other chicken you'll find.

We make all of our delicious sauces in house creating a one of a kind experience for each and every customer. 

Locally baked buns, hand trimmed chicken breast & thighs, hand pattied burgers made with our signature seasoning blend all provide a Bertie's customer an experience that will keep them craving it and telling everyone they meet.  


We're so proud of our chicken and burgers that we want to share them with the world and we want you to come along on that journey.
