Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken opening in Rockville

Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken
is opening soon at 16248 Frederick Road in Rockville, in the new Rock Grove shopping center. Signage was just installed over the future restaurant's storefront. Rise was founded in Durham, North Carolina in 2012. It has since expanded to 17 restaurants in North Carolina, Kansas, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee and Oklahoma.

It sounds like Rise will check many boxes for diners. They have tenderized, buttermilk-brined fried chicken sandwiches, and creative donuts. Their buttermilk cheddar biscuits should appeal to Red Lobster fans, but with the bonus of fillings that range from bacon or sausage to fried green tomatoes or fried chicken. Rise has a signature side dish of Cheddar Tots. And who could resist a Cheerwine donut?

There is no waitstaff at Rise, just a "swift service line," their website notes. The chain was named one of the Top 100 Movers and Shakers last year by Rockville diners will even be able to judge who has the better donut at Rock Grove on the premises, Rise or Dunkin'?
