About this business

TO LIVE AND FRY IN L.A. In 2017, four childhood friends came up with a simple concept — take Nashville Hot Chicken and make it better than anyone else in America. With only a couple thousand dollars to their name, they boot-strapped a pop-up concept in a parking lot in East Hollywood serving a simple menu of tenders, sliders, fries, and kale slaw — they created a viral cult following with lines consistently over an hour long.

We dined in on their second day open during lunch time. They had a crazy drive-thru line and a decently busy lobby but they did a great job! We tried the extra hot and hot chicken; the kale slaw; the mac n cheese; and the fries. The hot was genuinely, clear-my-sinuses hot! I normally like things very spicy and might try medium next time. Fiance liked his extra hot a lot. Flavor and texture were great, and the chicken slices are LARGE. You definitely need napkins or a wet wipe! The mac n cheese was creamy and flavorful, and... read more

Awesome chicken. Almost exactly an hour and a half wait from the 4 way. Definitely worth it tho. Went back after a week or so of being open, much faster, only took like 25 minutes this time. Ordered the Reaper, not sure why they make you sign a waiver. it’s definitely a psychological play. I would give it a 6/10 on my spicy scale. No sweat, slight cough and about 5 minutes of a runny nose, slight lip burn after eating it for about 20 minutes. Very delicious and easily palatable spice. Definitely the best chicken place in ... read more

The food is expensive but you get a lot! The 2 strip basket has HUGE tenders and the fries that come with the meal are above average! They're actually really good. They have a Dave's sauce that's good and you can ask for that, ketchup or hunny at the counter. The sliders are definitely not what I would consider a slider (small) they're HUGE so if you want to share a meal with the 2 sandwich that's definitely an option. The food is pretty expensive. It cost about $33 for two drinks a.slider sandwich meal and 2 pieces tender m... read more

Pro tip: this is a new location. It will be busy open to close for 9 plus months. Get there at opening if you want to wait less than 15 minutes. Food 10/10. Chicken was hot and crisp and legit good spice. Bun was soft and fresh. My pickles and milkshake were extra cold so extra props for that. I didn't get fries and opted for Mac and cheese instead which was creamy and tasty. *the bad reviews are comical, people upset over long waits and one lady gave a - star review because it looked busy and she said she wouldn't be g... read more
