Bonchon to Bring its Korean Fried Chicken to Fourth Avenue


June 25, 2024

Back in December 2023, ATL Wings closed its doors on Fourth Avenue, which was inside a former gas station (the space housed the Garage on 4th before ATL Wings).

With all of that being said, food is coming back to that specific corner of Fourth Avenue and University Boulevard.

The Korean fried chicken restaurant Bonchon is expected to open a new Tucson location at 802 N. Fourth Ave. Soon, you’ll see renovations in the works inside the 1,920-square-foot space, which is expected to open sometime before the end of 2024.

Bonchon is a national chain that opened its first Tucson restaurant in May of this year (6310 E. Tanque Verde #110).

Bonchon’s menu includes chicken of all types: wings, strips, drumsticks, boneless bites, and Chicken Katsu — katsu sauce and spicy mayo drizzled on top of a breaded chicken cutlet that’s served with steamed rice. You’ll also find bibimbap and Korean Tacos on the menu.

The restaurant got its start back in 2002 and has become quite a popular chain in the U.S. ever since. “When police were dispatched to manage traffic around a new restaurant, I knew we had a winning formula,” said Jinduk Seo, owner of the Korea-based chain, Bonchon.

Bonchon will soon be located at 802 N. Fourth Ave. and the other location can be found at 6310 E. Tanque Verde Rd. #110. For more information, visit bonchon.com and follow Bonchon Tucson on Instagram.
