Full Speed Chicken and Ribs, the new concept developed by Little Miss BBQ founders Scott and Bekke Holmes, is now open at 513 E. Roosevelt St. Focused on Southern and Nashville hot fried chicken and biscuits as well as pecan-smoked pork ribs and pulled pork, Full Speed Chicken and Ribs is already set for expansion in 2025.

“We’re really excited about bringing simple yet excellently-executed Southern and Nashville staples to the Phoenix area and serving our guests in a fun and welcoming environment,” said Holmes. “What started as a brainstorm has developed into a concept that we feel can be recreated anywhere. We look forward to introducing Full Speed Chicken and Ribs to other areas of the valley next year.”

The seed for Full Speed Chicken and Ribs was planted at the height of COVID, during which time the Holmeses purchased a fryer and began testing recipes at home, focusing primarily on Nashville hot chicken, smoked ribs and pulled pork and house-made buttermilk biscuits. With a purposefully small menu, the focus is on exceptional quality and a superior guest experience.

The unpretentious yet scrumptious menu begins with fried chicken offerings from tenders to leg quarters (including the thigh and drumstick), fried to a golden perfection and served with guests’ choice of southern, medium or “hottie hot hot” flavors. Pork ribs are available by the half rack or full rack; diners can even order a single rib. Sides include crunchy crinkle-cut fries, crispy coleslaw, thick and rich BBQ pork and beans and creamy mac and cheese.

Sandwiches include anything-but-traditional Pulled Pork and Chicken options as well as The Roosevelt Chicken Biscuit featuring a fried chicken breast, comeback sauce and pickles piled high on a house-made buttermilk biscuit. Other items of deliciousness include Pimento Cheese and Crackers, the Southwest Salad, “This & That Fries” loaded with pulled pork or fried chicken and the Strawberry Shortcake Biscuit for dessert. Catering is also available.

Full Speed Chicken and Ribs is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For convenience, the restaurant offers easy online ordering via its website. For more information, visit eatfullspeed.com.
