Foursquare Tips

  • For a taste of Nashville-style hot chicken, a fried chicken concept with a kick, check out Howlin' Rays in Chinatown. The savory, spicy flavor concoction is even served with waffles on the weekends.
  • Opening in 2 weeks!
  • Found this truck across from the Vista Theatre in Los Feliz on Saturday. Fried Chicken on a piece of bread with picked. Order white or dark, select your spice & grab a side. Had the dark (thigh), yum!
  • Got the hot. Seasoned perfectly and wasn't too spicy.
  • I've been here multiple times and the food and customer service is always phenomenal! The hardest working crew making the best fried chicken sando's you will ever eat period! PS. Get the Luis Style!
  • Always a looong line but totally worth it (waiting could extend to 2 hours) best chicken burger! But too spicy, always go one level down from what u usually eat in other restaurants
  • Always a long line, but always worth it! The chicken sandwich is life changing and their heat levels are no joke. Save yourself with their peach tea and definitely order extra comeback sauce.
  • Sando - medium heat, peach tea and fries
  • The hot is, hot!
  • Task Rabbits FTW. "Mild" is plenty of kick for most, "Hot" is an adventure. Chicken ordered "Howlin" includes gloves and usually a free side of mac salad. Eat Scoops right after to kill the heat.
  • The Sando, and quarter chicken, both medium spicy. SO GOOD! Worth the 2+ hour wait.
  • The Sando. Medium. Get taro fries from Baohaus next door. The sweet starch pairs well with the fire in your mouth.
  • Get the Nashville hot chicken - go when they open in the mornings to avoid the wait.
  • Biggest hot chicken sandwich you will ever eat. If you love spicy food, get the HOT. Anything above that is for experienced foodies only.
  • Alright guys, the fried chicken is good, like really good. But it's not two-hour-wait good so no, not worth the long ass line. The medium heat isn't that spicy. Sando is alright. Get some fries too.
  • Those in the know at Howlin' Ray's opt for Mario Style, an off-menu catch that puts hefty chunks of Nashville hot chicken over top a pile of fries, along with cheese, slaw, and pickles.
  • Go early or go home.
  • Thai spice rules: Go one lower than you usually get (e.g. If you normally get things medium, try their mild first).
  • That wait, tho
  • "Medium" wasn't spicy enough for me. I'm not a chili/hot sauce freak and I could easily finish my sandwich without anything to drink. Maybe the "hot" starts at "Hot"?
