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.

Do it!!!! Orders are definitely shareables large portions fairly priced. DO IT! chicken is juicy, spicy, sweet and crunchy. Sauces are the bomb as well. This place is a must try for any foodie like myself. The customer service is amazing also which makes your dining experience that much better. Suggestion: sit at the bar top you are able to see it all as well as interact w. Staff pretty cool place.

Always good. DAE at the front was so helpful the first time I came in, and subsequent times bringing in new people. Got our meal in ~10 minutes, a huge crowd came in right after us but we all ate within 20 minutes. Our sandwiches came out HOT, fries were a little cold in comparison so I'd ask to wait on them next time. Mac and cheese was very creamy.

DEFINITELY recommend chicken sandwich lovers.

This place is great for a good sized meal definitely worth the 12 bucks I spent on the fries absolutely delicious.

Wow! Hot and spicy!  This is a small spot. I thought it was a larger diner. Was surprised to find it inside of a small shopping center. As I drove into the lot I noticed the large crowd, inside and outside. We drove out specifically for this place, 2 kids and I. Tonight it was BOOMING! No place to sit. We lined up to order: 2 Homestyle chicken sandwiches (mild and plain). We figured by the time we got our order, tables or counter space would open up.
