Hands down the best spicy chicken place ever. Way better than Dave's, yes I said that. Loaded Mac and cheese is a heart attack meal so not everyday splurge, but that once in a while cheat day meal. Tenders are my fave. Would recommend to any heat lover

Tried Crimson Coward on Mother's Day 2020 (yesterday) and it was great! The sandwich (HOT - setting) was my favorite part as well as the fried pickles here.  They were a nice touch to the sandwich. The service Matthew gave us was really good too and professional. I will come back for more of that sandwich!.
