Why Crimson Coward?

Google Trends shows the Nashville Hot Chicken boom increasing into the mainstream. Why? We think it’s because spicy fried chicken is fun, delicious and satisfying.  The Crimson demographic is overwhelming YOUNG as can be seen below.

In our experience, young people especially enjoy the social experience of daring each other to try our hottest level of Burn, Baby Burn.
We have thrived substantially during the coronavirus crisis because comfort food is a reassuring meal during stressful times and our legion of fans keeps growing every week from Santa Clarita to San Diego. Below is a Google “heat map” showing where people are located when they search for directions to our restaurant.

So good. The highest heat level is legitimately hot and I tolerate high levels of heat. Staff are nice and sandwiches are bomb. It's so big I usually not able to finish it. It is definitely a top contender in the so cal hot chicken business.

I asked for extra pickles on the side, no problem!!!  Staff was friendly and let me tell you, those were some hard working staff! They were cranking out the orders!!  I watched as they were all in sync pushing out the orders! Kudos to the staff!!! I have to admit I was impressed!!! Sorry no picture cause I ate it all, LOL.
