Nothing shakes off the memory of a 4th of July bikini like a bucket of fried chicken! National Fried Chicken Day is Friday July 7th but at some restaurants the deals have already begun! Make it a sweatpants kind of weekend and indulge in some of the best Los Angeles has to offer.
Originally from Guatemala, Pollo Campero has grown to 70 restaurants around the world with 13 locations in California! Best of all they’ve already started the fried chicken celebration and guests who visit any participating Pollo Campero from July 5 through July 7 will receive 50 percent off either a two-piece, three-piece, or half-chicken personal meal, simply by presenting a vouchers that can be easily downloaded at Campero.com.
Lauded as L.A.’s hottest chicken, this Nashville chain has taken the Fear of Missing Out Foodie scene by storm since they first parked their food truck in 2015. You’ll never not find a line at their Chinatown location but if you’re looking for a way to spend a few hours then what better day than National Fried Chicken Day to see what all the fuss is about. Doors open at 11 AM but you better be in line far before then.
When your desire for fried chicken far surpasses your patience, consider hopping out of line at Howlin’ Rays and taking a seat at Gus’s Fried Chicken instead. Originally from Mason Tennessee, they now have 22 locations with the newest Burbank location opened just a few months ago.
Honestly, I haven’t had Howlin’ Rays yet because I’m not sure a chicken leg deserves that much of my time. However there’s nothing that tastes better than a sit-down restaurant with an average wait time. Except maybe one that takes reservations 🙂
Founded in Los Angeles in 2000, Honey’s Fried Chicken in Culver City promises hormone free, vegetarian fed chicken that’s crackling without being greasy. Pair it with a side of fresh biscuits and a little local honey from the spout and you’re in for a sweet treat.
This is K.F.C. and I don’t mean Kentucky :). Kyochon serves Korean Fried Chicken and is originally from South Korea. Known for their signature soy garlic and hot and sweet sauces I recommend trying them all with a mix of wings of whole chicken.
