I’ve been wanting the loaded Mac and cheese for over a month and what I got just didn’t do it 😩. The noodles tasted like they’d been sitting all day and were way to soggy. Next time I order I’m for sure going to call in to specify so that this doesn’t happen again. Because the loaded Mac & Cheese here normally is unmatched! 🤗🤤

I ordered the Lonely Coward, boneless chicken breast on slice bread & pickles. $9.00Half breast pounded flat & fried, w/heat level choice. Pickles mushy. Not good.Staff not friendly at all. At least make greetings like they value their customers. I was the only one there. Not going again. 👎😕

This review is for the Long Beach location. We drove in from LV today and came across Crimson Coward, the first thing we noticed was the smell of the chicken from the parking lot, we couldn't resist. In the door we met Ali and he is very welcoming. The menu was simple enough it was chicken a few different ways so we got the chicken. Chicken wings, tenders and Joe fries. Everything can came with sauce but honestly you don't need it. All the chicken was cooked perfectly! The chicken wings were cooked throughly to the bone, the tenders were perfect and the crunch could be heard throughout the place. I wish we had taken pictures but when the food came we jumped on it. I wish we had a location in Vegas but next time I'm in Long Beach I will be back!

Very professional and if you want your meat fried right meaning if you want your meat moist and not fried hard this is the place

Cool vibe with equally cool staff. Freshly prepared food. Perfect place to spend your time waiting for your car to be serviced at Pepboys.

There's something missing here. It tries but it misses the mark for me. The establishment has an open concept with a large dining area. The kitchen is in full view, so you can see your order being made. There is no one taking your order and you have to place your order on the monitor at the front. It was easy to follow but took some time to adjust to ordering in this manner, especially since i was new to the establishment and wasnt familair with the menu. The menu items are accompanied by pictures, which helps, but the prices on the monitor are different than the menu at the counter. The drink options were few, given most soda options were not available at the time.The food was ok, nothing i'd return for, but i will say that during my visit many came in for pick up orders. I did go with the medium heat option for the chicken. Perhaps a try with the hotter options might be better.

Delicious chicken sandwich, probably the second hottest I've found in the area. Bit too much oil still on the chicken.

One of my favorite places for hot chicken. It always pleases!

One of the best chicken sandwiches I've ever had! I went with the medium spice, and by the time I was halfway through I was surely feeling the heat! I recommend giving this place a try if you haven't already 😋

Best hot chicken out there. Better to order online so it can be ready when you get there.

Wish this place had vegan or vegetarian style would be nice option with there spices! Our family and friends loved having it. Very good customer service and fast!In Reply to Comment: Very good to know will try it out, but was speaking more about plant-based meat options would be awesome, best of luck!

Food is amazing! The mild is pretty spicy (for me, anyway) tho. My kids say even the unseasoned is still pretty spicy, but what do they know? I have some work indoctrinating them into the world of hot chicken… delicious work. And Crimson is here to help with that. 😜

Delicious spicy chicken sandwiches! Wow, really good. Couple gripes. expensive! 15 a sandwich, it's too much! Excellent customer service. My family preferered Bangin Buns down the street, and there you get two slightly smaller sandwiches for the same price as one here. The Bangin Buns bread seemed slightly better, softer, but CC may have better chicken. That being said I would definitely come again. The sandwiches are pretty huge. The fries I thought were kinda boring. Maybe they have Cajun style I didn't see idk. Will return. Very good stuff. Bring the price down though.

Honestly, really yummy fried chicken sandwich and wings, but salty! The fried pickles were delish, as well, but really salty! The food was very salt forward! I think the breading for the chicken, wings and the breading for the fried pickles could stand to see a big reduction in how much salt goes into the batter! Other than that, it was good! I like how they offer 5 levels of spice and even the “country—0 level of heat” had a tiny bit of spice to it!
08:15 10 Sep 21
Nice customer service, seriously juicy tenders; their medium heat is perfect and their hottest is... outta control lol habanero and ghost pepper, watch out! Their Mac and cheese is really delicious too, like honestly surprised by the quality
22:07 09 Sep 21
Delicious food, just a shame they are already raising the prices starting like 3 months after opening the artesia location.

The Crimson heat punishes me, for I am a CowardBIRTHDAY MONTH=BIRTHDAY COUPONS=HAPPY RODNEYFree birthday month sandwich for Loyalty Club members3 free chicken tenders upon signing up for the Loyalty ClubI originally visited Crimson Coward the week after Grand Opening, to redeem my 3 free chicken tenders promo. Disappointed with what I was given, mainly because of too much & uneven breading, I've been reticent to come back. The opportunity for Crimson Coward to redeem themselves, in my eyes, came with the free birthday month sandwich in my inbox.Crimson sandwich (extra slaw & pickles, medium heat)-Hormone & antibiotic-free chicken breast, marinated 24 hours in a blend of 16 primary & 32 secondary spices, called "the Crimson Rub". Plus, house-made slaw, pickles & Crimson sauce on an artisan brioche bun. Seeing how huge the freshly fried chicken breast was, you wouldn't believe the chicken wasn't jacked to the gizzard with Mark McGwire homerun juice. It was as if the chicken were an Instagram thirst trap, screaming for likes. That big of a breast! The chicken was juicy, and at medium heat, was just right for me to savor the flavors, only numbing my palate towards the end of the meal. The slaw was crispy, the Crimson sauce cool, & the pickles delivered their sour tang. Enough for 2 meals for most, I finished my heaping pile of sandwich and left with a happy tum tum.Service was great. The young man working the counter was quick with my order. Another person asked how was my food, later on. Only one person ahead of me, the wait time for my order was minimal. Spacious layout inside, with tables socially distanced. Crimson Coward is located within the Pep Boys plaza, on the right of UniMart, across the street from Artesia Park.Halal food served here. Also, don't bring your evil eye, because they've got protection.Crimson Coward, you've indeed redeemed yourselves, in my book. The Crimson sandwich is a beast, and I immediately want another one, this time paired with an order of fried pickles. It's great knowing only hormone/antibiotic-free chicken is served on the menu, and I'm fully aware to not underestimate the heat levels. For the chicken tenders I had were at Hot level, and it seemed like one of those food challenges. Medium is great for me, country/mild for those that are cowards ;p

I love spicy food trust me i know a thing or two about spicy food but this chicken place made my day. How? First off, they gave me a what they called “Burrrn Baby Burn” the proper title should be “ Shawty fire burning”. Nonetheless, the food was delectable & I will be back again. A shoot out to my friend Mr. Hector, for the Recommendation to the “Burrn baby burn”.Time I went: 06/15/21 12:30pm

Takes a little long to get food but the tenders were juicy and crispy.
16:05 25 Apr 21
Holy wow! Delicious! The chicken is very fresh I watched them pull out the raw chicken, dip it in the appropriate batter, fry it up, and then put the seasonings that I requested on it. The potato salad is amazing! Definitely could share a sandwich with another person.

HOLY MOLY!!!If you're Hungry I suggest Crimson Coward.My Wife and I made the mistake of getting 2 "The Coward" Sandwiches... should have only got one and split it. Still I finished mine, My Wife ate half and will finish the rest with her Lunch tomorrow. We also made the mistake of ordering 2 sides...You will only need 1 You will need to choose your favorite because they will fill up a BOX for whatever side you choose. The Fries were fresh and Tasty. The Fried Pickles were also.A little pricey but they didn't shirk the Amount!!!Will come Back!!!
00:23 15 Feb 21
These guys are the best. If you love spicy these guys are the #1. If you don't they still make a perfect chicken sandwich. I had car problems and I called to hold my order. They where totally nice about it. They made my order fresh on the spot. The Joey eat fries are bomb but there honestly chicken sandwich is the best.
19:48 14 Feb 21
Best hot chicken in LA , quality ain’t cheap and this place has amazing quality , wait times might be skittle long because they are busy , but it is soo worth it , I like the home style

Crimson Coward is one of my favorite places to eat. It's a little pricey but well worth the extra $$I always get the Crimson sandwich (hot) and a side of mac and cheese gotta put some on the sandwich and have some for later. My gf loves their tenders (country) & fried pickles.If you haven't tried it yet and love chicken you gotta stop in and get a bite to eat. You won't be disappointed.
07:38 09 Feb 21
Had it just today. The staff was super friendly and the food was great! Definitely will be there again!
04:07 09 Feb 21
I live in Laguna Hills, so happy that this location is open because the food is worth the 33 min drive! Took my girl to tonight for her first time, she is in love with it haha. Staff were amazing and loved that the gave recommendations! Mac on the Joey fries is heaven sent!!!

Excellent Nashville Hot Chicken! This is your best option for hot chicken if you don't want to wait in line for 3 hours at another hot chicken restaurant in...
I've been to many hot chicken places, and you should choose Crimson Coward for their sauces. The usual fare is great... chicken is juicy, bread and pickles soaks it up, fries are just fine.
So good. The highest heat level is legitimately hot and I tolerate high levels of heat. Staff are nice and sandwiches are bomb. It's so big I usually not able to finish it. It is definitely a top contender in the so cal hot chicken business.
The burger was pretty good. It had a crunch to it and it was well marinated. I would recommend this place if you havn't gave it a shot.
Best hot chicken in the area! Had the 3 piece (medium heat) it was hot but still enjoyable! Fries Mac & cheese
This place is delicious. Thank you to all the crew there for making this first time great! S/O to Big A for the recommendations and fast service
