Boneless breast, CRIMSON sauce, slaw, pickles, Brioche Bun

This is no ordinary chicken sandwich! It’s the one and only Crimson Coward Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich AKA The Crimson. The Crimson is a certified hormone-free, boneless breast cooked to perfection and served with Crimson Sauce, house-made slaw, pickles on an artisan brioche bun. At Crimson Coward we use the finest chicken and have a direct relationship with the farmer. We know where our chicken comes from and you will taste the difference! The Crimson Chicken Sandwich is where it’s at and you can taste the quality.

The Crimson Rub

A lot of research and development went into developing the signature Crimson Coward rub. We didn’t stop until we knew we found THE perfect combination for Crimson Coward’s Hot Nashville chicken. Just how serious are we about delivering an authentic hot chicken experience? Well, we spent six months researching, yes you read that right. During that time we visited Nashville several times, you have to go the source when only the best will do. We also met with leading local chefs and got to work in the test kitchen. It then took four more months, yes we ate a lot of chicken during those months! It was well worth it because “The Crimson Rub” was born. One of a kind flavor that you will not find anywhere else. We worked tirelessly and after testing 120 different combinations we found the one. The Crimson Rub contains a secret blend of over 16 primary and 32 secondary spices! We cannot tell you what our secret rub contains (exactly) but one thing we do is to apply “The Crimson Rub” 24 hrs before the chicken is cooked. It’s not the fastest way to create a Nashville Hot chicken sandwich or tenders but we go that extra mile at Crimson Coward. You can read all our glowing reviews but you must taste The Crimson for yourself.

Cooking the Perfect Hot chicken

Once we landed the perfect combination of spices for The Crimson Rub we perfected cooking crisp and juicy chicken. Our state of the art fryers isn’t anything you have seen before. Forget about using a cast iron pan as Grandma did. There you have it, farm-sourced, hormone-free chicken, paired with The Crimson Rub, at Crimson Coward only the best will do. Now you just have to decide what level of heat you can handle!

This Cajun chicken is very tasty. Deep fried but not overcooked. The chicken breast is juicy  and tender. The condiments complement the chicken spices. I appreciate that there is choices in the spiciness of the chicken from mild to super hot.

My boyfriend suggested going to this place since he has seen many YouTube videos about this place. Made the order online and had no trouble picking up the food. Since it was our first time eating their food, I got the Joe Eat Fries (medium), and he ordered the Four Tenders (mild). To be honest, I have pretty low tolerance for spicy food. Can't handle regular spicy Hot Cheetos. However, when I ate the fries and then tried my boyfriend's chicken tenders, I knew that their chicken tastes so much better when it's spicy. Mild wasn't enough. So, if it's your first time ordering there, go for medium or higher. Just make sure to have water with you.

Freaking loved this place! Went with my boyfriend and two brothers after a hike and it was such a great experience. Their sandwiches were absolutely delicious. The burrrn baby burn was intense but the hot option was perfect. I'll be craving this soon enough and will definitely be back again. The staff is so amazingly friendly and even provide tips and help if you're unsure of what to get. Recommend! There's also  free drink with yelp check in (: Update: Didn't order double chicken patties and still got some! This place is really generous with their portions.

Great place, they have a great assembly of ordering to waiting and picking up your food. Food is impeccable, I suggest calling ahead just in case it's busy. Wait times can be long but it's absolutely worth it.
