Take your food to the next level

Lefty’s Fish N’ Chicken Mix takes fried chicken to a whole new level. The golden crispy coating locks in the juices, so the meat is moist and delicious every time. Using our mixes for fish frying results in a crunchy exterior that leaves the fish soft and flaky for the ideal texture.

Our crispy, delicious chicken breading is ready to use fast - just add water! You don’t need milk, eggs, or any other ingredients to enjoy Lefty’s Spices. Cover chicken, fish, vegetables, and more in the frying batter, dip them in the dry seasonings, and then fry or bake to perfection! For a more intense flavor profile, we suggest the two-step dipping method where you have a creamy wet batter and the dry batter.

From Our Home Kitchen To Yours

In 1989, Walter Nash, Sr., and his wife, Margaret, fulfilled a lifelong dream of opening a family business. They bought a small trailer and converted it to a food truck. Together, they served up mouthwatering barbecue from the side of the road in Hughesville, Maryland. Folks from far and wide lined up to get a taste of Lefty’s famous barbecue ribs, chicken, and pork. They even served a few housemade sides dishes (baked beans, coleslaw and potato salad) that kept customers coming back for more.

Nash, better known as Lefty, grew up picking cotton in Georgia. His upbringing instilled wisdom about knowing what it takes to be successful. Every morning, stacked piles of hickory and mesquite wood behind the trailer fueled the fire for the barbecue. The smoke and aroma that poured out of the roadside kitchen was a daily testament to Lefty’s determination to serve his community with the comfort foods he grew up on.

Margaret’s dishes were always a hit at family gatherings and backyard barbecues she loved cooking and formulating new recipes. Once their business was up and running, the hard-working cook started combining spices and seasonings to create a new rib and chicken rub. When she found the right mixture, Lefty was delighted. He began using it to marinate the meat several days before cooking. He would then place the raw, not parboiled, meat onto the hickory stoked fire and cook it for more than four hours. The result was legendary.

Having come far from humble beginnings…the Nash family currently operates a full-service restaurant and catering in Waldorf, Maryland, offering premium quality barbecue meats and homestyle side dishes like fried garlic cabbage, sweet potato souffle, macaroni and cheese and so much more. They are proud to sell Lefty’s Fish N’ Chicken Mix from their online store so that families across the country can experience the delicious flavors that made Lefty’s famous.
