★★★ There's a sudden outburst of halal hot Chicken in Southern California after the resounding success of Dave's hot Chicken. This is probably the 6th store that has opened this year. The location is very good (The District at Tustin) and the place is brightly lit, clean and inviting with plenty of spots outside to sit down and eat (COVID restrictions friendly).
As far as the food is concerned, I was not too impressed. I would attribute it maybe the inexperience of the staff running this place. Their food is extremely hot!!! We ordered mild and medium. Mild was nice and medium was really hot. Forget about hot, extra hot and reaper. I would've given them higher rating if not for the carelessness of the staff. First of all they assured me that they had packed the house sauce in our order and we found none inside. Second the lady behind the counter sprinkled extremely hot spices on fries and covered the pickles with it as well. In fact the mild fried were way more hotter than the medium. They forget to toss the fries after sprinkling them with the chili powder so the ones on the bottom were bland. Also the quality of fries was not too great.
I will give them some time to get their act together. Judging from the lines at the front of the store and the great location it seems that they will be around for a while. Posted on September 14, 2020
