Rooster Republic’s Nashville Hot Chicken: A balanced blend of heat and sweet, they’re taking flight with this spicy take on our fine feathered friend. Order it in Medium, Hot, Wild or Intense.

Insider tip: If breakfast is more your thing, then order Rooster’s hot chicken biscuit (served only on weekends). 515 N Main St, (714) 850-0241; www.eatroosterrepublic.com.
