Fryer’s Roadside at 12830 New Hampshire Ave in Colesville’s Meadowood Shopping Center, which first opened as “a traditional walk-up window Chicken Shack/Ice Cream Stand” back in August 2021, is reopening today (Thursday, December 8) at 11am. It was sold to the owners of All Set Restaurant & Bar back in September. According to the restaurant, the new overhauled menu will feature reimagined versions of some Fryer’s favorites, alongside unique new additions such as Catfish Nuggets, Whole Fried Chicken and Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts. The restaurant will also feature select BBQ items from All Set’s sister restaurant Money Muscle BBQ.
Per Fryer’s Roadside: Chef Edward Reavis and Jennifer Meltzer, the team behind All Set Restaurant & Bar and Money Muscle BBQ, are thrilled to announce the official reopening of Fryer’s Roadside. The duo first announced the purchase of the Silver Spring-based fried chicken and ice-cream stand in September 2022 and will reopen the quick-serve restaurant for walk-up and carry-out ordering during lunch and dinner at 12830 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring on Thursday, December 8th with a brand-new menu.
Fryer’s Roadside first opened in 2021, serving fried chicken, sides, soft-serve ice cream and snowballs to the Montgomery County community. After a year, previous ownership announced that the eatery was available for sale, prompting Chef Reavis and Meltzer to purchase the restaurant in September 2022. Chef Reavis, who grew up eating Southern cooking in a small southeastern Virginia town, has thoughtfully overhauled the menu which now features reimagined versions of some Fryer’s favorites alongside unique new additions.
