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.

I recently visited Dave's Hot Chicken and had an amazing experience! The chicken was incredibly flavorful and juicy, with just the right amount of spice.

Overall, I highly recommend Dave's Hot Chicken if you'r... read more

So I just got introduced to Dave's hot chicken about a year ago. I've been to about 3 different locations now and I've been to this location 3 times. Every time it's been consistently good.

I highly recommend getting the honey packets to add to the chicken sandwich. The sweetness really balances out the spice. If you like hot chicken I definitely ... read more
