Bomb!!! (Under statement)Ordered half coward and the way those sandwiches were looking I had to get the Crimson. Totally disregarding my diet btw. Cooked to order so everything was super fresh and hot when I get them. Staff was super dope as well. Definitely recommend!!!.

These Chicken Sandwiches are oversized and packed with flavor. Hands Down the best I've ever had. The Mac and Cheese is excellent too. Fried pickles are good as the seasoned fries are average. This restaurant doesn't need another 5-Star review but it DESERVES it. It packed in there.

First time eating Nashville hot chicken.  I had the one below the hottest spice.  A little pricey for the chicken sandwich and fries, but it is high quality and they make it to order.  I really enjoyed the sandwich.  If you like spicy food, this is a must try.  Not sure how this compares to Howlin' Rays in Chinatown.
