Netflix-Featured Rhythm's Chicken & Waffles To Revive In San Diego's North Park

June 19, 2023

After shuttering its location in Pacific Beach earlier this year, Rhythm's Chicken & Waffles will soon revive in San Diego's North Park as the rebranded Mom's Chicken & Waffles. 

Brian Foxworth started out his culinary career working in kitchens around San Diego before opening his fried chicken fueled food truck business in 2017. Foxworth began his entrepreneurial journey at San Diego High School, always having an interest in owning his own business. He even helped get fried chicken from a local business on the school's lunch menu and also ran a small record studio recording for artists from around San Diego County. After a couple ventures, Foxworth started a company called Green Team Recycling where he put recycling bins on school campuses and collected the cans and bottles after lunches. He went on to receive a contract with the San Diego Padres to clean the stadium, which grew the company to over 300 employees.

In mid 2019, Brian teamed up with his mother Collette Foxworth and opened Rhythm's Chicken & Waffles in the heart of San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood. The music-themed eatery quickly had lines out the door of hungry patrons wanting to sample comfort food dishes. In 2021, Rhythms was featured on the Netflix original series Fresh, Fried & Crispy. The family also took over a neighboring unit two door downs from Rhythm's to open Rhythm & Desserts (R&D) Ice Cream.

Brian's mother, Collette, who was an integral force behind Rhythm's, will soon open Mom's Chicken & Waffles from inside U-31 Cocktail Lounge in North Park. Like Rhythm's, expect a menu of centered around fried chicken with items like the popular fried chicken and waffles sandwiches, as well as hand-pressed burgers, bacon wrapped hotdogs, loaded chicken fries & tots, chicken sandwiches and more. 

Mother's Chicken & Waffles is expected to open this summer at 3112 University Avenue inside U-31 in San Diego's North Park. For more information, follow the Mom's on Instagram
