Chicken and Rice Guys Opening Restaurants in Downtown Boston and Medford

A couple of years ago, we reported that a Boston-area food truck was planning to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant just north of Boston. Now we have learned that both that location and another one in the heart of downtown Boston will be opening this spring.

According to an article in Boston Magazine, the people behind the Chicken & Rice Guys food truck are hoping to open a restaurant on Salem Street in Medford later this spring, with another one that they recently announced opening on Bedford Street in Boston's Financial District possibly by early April. The article mentions that this latter location is taking over the space where the Korean/Mexican eatery InBoston had been before closing last month. (Other locations of InBoston can be found near Symphony Hall and in Waltham.)

The Chicken & Rice Guys food truck, which first started out in April of 2012, is known in part for its halal chicken and rice with various sauce options, including white sauce and hot sauce. Its website can be found at
