Anne Fishbein Gus's hot fried chicken

In Los Angeles, there are two exciting new vendors of hot fried chicken, and both have Tennessee in their DNA. One of them, Howlin Ray's Nashville Hot Chicken, is only available if you're willing to stand in line at Chinatown's Far East Plaza for hours to get it. I'm happy for Howlin' Ray's that it has garnered so much excitement that people are willing to queue for half an afternoon to get a taste. But there's another place in town that serves great spicy fried chicken without the hassle. In fact, you can sit comfortably at a checkered tablecloth–adorned table and sip sweet tea while you wait, which will be 10 to 20 minutes and not hours. That place is Gus's World Famous Hot & Spicy Fried Chicken. Read our full review.
