A warm welcome to all the Nashville hot chicken aficionados of Los Angeles and beyond. We proudly opened our doors in April of 2019. Watch the video above to learn what inspired us to bring our very own Nashville inspired hot chicken to town. Word travels fast and we already have customers driving from as far away as San Diego to see how much Crimson Coward heat they can handle. A big thank you to all of our customers and regulars! Check out our over 1,100 reviews on Yelp.

Happy to announce that we are opening additional locations in 2020! Stay tuned and until then can’t wait to serve you at our flag ship location in Downey. Don’t forget you can order online for easy pick up or dine in.

What kind of Crimson Coward are you? Come find out! We look forward to serving you.

For the last two years I've been having fun driving across So. Cal and exploring all of the new Nashville Hot Chicken places.

Today, I found one of the best - and definitely the one with the greatest name, "The Crimson Coward." (The name alone made it worth driving out there from Studio City; I wonder where the owners came up with that name? It sounds like the name of a character in an old movie about pirates! )

I work at a local ER and my staff and MDs LOVE this place. Ive started bringing home to my family and they are addicted. There is something about these sandwhiches that really improve morale in an otherwise challenging environment. Seeing people eat those sandwhiches with big smile on their faces (all with worn marks from the N95s) is priceless!  Thank you Ali and Crimson Coward crew for making the shift better!

THANK YOU from the ER crew!
