I absolutely love this place.  This chicken is made to order so it is always fresh and piping hot.  My friends and I ate at the restaurant, so once we received our order it took awhile before we could eat it.  That is how hot the chicken was.  I plan to visit again soon.  Yummy!

So yea, I've said this before...I don't eat meat. BUT when you're in love with your wife and she does eat meat AND loves all things hot and spicy, love will make you do some crazy things. Like going to a Hot Chicken place.

Crimson Coward is another in the line of Nashville style hot chicken places--or so you'd think.


On my initial visit when they first opened the lines were long which was to be expected but I was pleasantly surprised and found the wait to be well worth it.

Delicious chicken and macaroni. I was looking for a new spot to eat and stumbled on this restaurant. The place is small but the customer service is great! The hot levels are spicy (I am used to eating spicy food). The macaroni is delicious and tastes homemade. They put a lot of effort in their food.
