Ordered the Leg and Thigh combo and Truffle Mac and Cheese.The chicken meat was nice, hot, and juicy. The spice flavor was mostly in the crunchy skin. I wish the fries could have been more evenly seasoned because the few that were extremely coated with the spices were extremely salty and the non-coated ones were still hot, but didn't really have a flavor to them.The bread wasn't toasted, forgot to try the pickles, dipping sauce was great to pair with either the chicken or fries, and the truffle mac and cheese was great.I would probably suggest getting the Signature Slaw side to offset how heavy the chicken and fries.

What's the saying? Don't settle for less? In my experience the chicken was not great. Something about the flavor of the spicy chicken tenders was not right. Within taking one bite, the entire fried shell of the chicken fell apart. The chicken was moist, I'll give them that, but aside from it, not much flavor, not a great experience. The fact that we were in an out within five minutes should have been a sign. If you have the time, I recommend driving to Downey to try the hot chicken at Crimson Coward. If you want something closer, I'd even suggest Babas hot chicken in Riverside. But, at least we tried it. Maybe it was an off day for them? Don't take my word for it, try it for yourself.

The chicken was extremely spicy and some hints of sweetness but, it did not have true flavor like chicken should have. The food came out quickly and I was able to enjoy it outside. The inside is very crammed with people and does not have many seats.

Came here for lunch with my coworker. The service was great and the cashier was friendly. I ordered my food ahead of time and even with the drive here from Corona, the food stayed fresh! I'll definitely be coming back!

This place is Amazing! So glad they brought a Hot Chicken place to chino Hills! They have amazing Crispy delicious chicken a top a Texas toast served with sweet and savoury fries! They have 4 menu items: Leg and Thigh Combo, Tender Combo, Three Piece Combo, and the delicious Slider Combo! The sliders come packed with a juicy, crispy tender in the middle, surrounded by coleslaw, pickles and the house sauce (Hottie Sauce) all covered with warm toasty buns! They also have in house drinks like lemonade and sweet tea! The Truffle Mac and cheese is a must try for anyone who is in the area! Hotties is a great restaurant that stands out against everything in chino hills!

Was excited to finally try Hotties after hearing so many good things. Its located in the middle of the mall so you can park on either side of the courtyard which is convenient. There was a line out the door but it moved quickly. Once inside theres not much seating but lots of outdoor seating. It's worth the wait! Staff is very friendly and service was excellent. The food was really good. I sampled pretty much everything and was really happy with it all. The fried chicken is about a 6 or 7 when it comes to spicy which is perfect! Outside is crunchy and spicy and the meat is very flavorful. I love that it comes with the bread to sop up the sauces and juices! A lot of people dont get the purpose of the bread. Chicken sandwich was yummy. Not spicy at all and really enjoyable. The fries are great with the seasoning on them and their sauce is good too! Definitely a 5 star for quality and just the fun of eating some yummy spicy chicken.

This was the best and juiciest chicken sandwich we've had in a long time. My husband never writes reviews but insisted that I leave one for this place!I planned on taking pictures but couldn't wait long enough. Yum. We got the two slider combo which came with two sandwiches and a good portion of fries and one drink.Sandwiches are just on a normal hamburger bun but the chicken is ginormous, juicy, and covered in delicious sauce! We just had it yesterday and im writing the review right now as I'm waiting for today's delivery of chicken! LolI'll take a picture and update this time.

I had their Hot leg and thigh combo. The chicken was hot and spicy. I wish the chicken had a little more flavor but still great tasting. The chicken is served on a bed of bread with fries.

Review №10

Chicken lack favor. The thigh breading is to thick and was falling off. The spice should be throughout the breading on chicken, not in one area. Slice toast soaked up oil from chicken . Super nice customer sevices. Sauce is great.

We tried the 3pc. Combo(medium spicy) as well as the 2 slider combo (mega spicy). Overall the food was good, and the portions were large for the price we paid.The wavy cut french fries were hot and crispy, while still being soft and fluffy on the inside. The chicken had a good crunch and flavor. Our favorite of the bunch was the thigh piece, as it was very juicy. The mega chicken tenders in the sandwich were good but weren't as spicy as I would have thought, but the spice level would be spicy enough for most people. The coleslaw was pretty good and went well with the chicken. The medium spicy chicken had a good flavor and crunch, it was too spicy for my boyfriend but was not spicy at all for me. The sauce that comes with the meal is really good and compliments the fries and chicken.We took our food to go, but there is limited amount of seats available inside, and there is seating available outside.Overall it was a good experience and we will be going back to try the other items!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME NOR MONEY! FLAVORLESS CHICKEN WARNING! WHEN WE ASKED ABOUT THE ORDER THEY SAID IT TAKES 25 MINUTES! IT TOOK 35! AND IT WASN'T WORTH THE WAIT.

Chicken was cooked perfect and had a really good sauce that was similar to raising Cane's. Got there around 6pm on a Tuesday night and there was no line until around 7pm. I would recommend this place if your in the Chino hills area. Closest spot to park would be by the Barns and Noble.

I used to give this place a 5 star just 2 months ago. I have removed my great review and now have to give a 3 star, which is a little generous. The quality over the past few weeks has dropped significantly. Bugs flying around the place. The bread is no longer toasted. The seasoning for the fries is all over the place either waaayyyyy too much or barely there. The chicken is still good but not like previously. I hope they can fix the issues and bring it back to what it was before. This place was one of the few places I found that made chicken right.

Let me start off by saying that I'm fiend for chicken sandwiches. Hotties is located at the shoppes in Chino Hills on Grand. It's next to Barnes and Nobles across from RA sushi. I came on a Tuesday at around 1:30 and there was only one person ahead of me. It took about 15 to 20 minutes to get my order. They had a steady stream of customers the whole time I was there. Hotties says that they are a Nashville Hot Chicken joint. In my opinion they are and they aren't to an extent. Don't get me wrong, the food is good and it's way better that the Chick Fil A across the street. It may cost a bit more but it's worth it. I can only base my review on what I tried which were the sliders, fries, coleslaw and the heat levels that they were served at. They don't serve regular chicken sandwiches but they do have sliders which are pretty filling. The sliders aren't sold individually and they're offered only in combos. A 2 slider combo came out to 10 bucks and some change, no drink included. I tried the mild and medium heat levels and I didn't feel much heat or spice at all, so that's why I want to come back and try the fire heat level. I compare all hot chicken places to Howlin' Ray's because I feel that they are the standard to what Nashville style hot chicken should be. I'm guessing that Hottie's fire heat level to be on par with Ray's mild or medium. Now what I always say about Nashville style Hot Chicken such as Ray's is that I don't understand why anyone would order or enjoy getting a heat level at hot or above because at that point you're not able to taste the chicken. All you get is heat, pain, a stomach ache and a painful feeling when it leaves you. The Hotties chicken was good but again, I'm used to more heat or at least some heat and spice at the levels I tried. I like the bun the slider was served on, you need a moist type of bun on chicken sandwiches like those. I know it's not easy to get that just right in between. If it were slightly more mushy it would have not been good but it stayed within the realms of a good bun to hold your chicken. The fries were good, especially with the come back sauce. In my opinion the coleslaw lack flavor, it needed something to take it to that next level. Pro tip: ask for an extra comeback sauce and mix it into your coleslaw to flavorize it. Your welcome. To my surprise, I feel that Hottie's comeback sauce is better than Howlin' Ray's! One thing that I would recommend is that I wish they would label each order to what spice level it is. We got two orders and got home and was clueless as to which spice level went along to which order. So in conclusion, I feel this place definitely blows away Chick Fil A but it's not quite on par with the great Nashville style Hot Chicken joints as far as the spicy heat profiles that I love so much. In my opinion, if Hotties tweaked their menu a little, then they could be up there with the greats. Compared to Ray's, Hotties is more reasonably priced and there is better parking. So if you don't feel like driving to chinatown and waiting for an hour or more in line for Ray's then this place should satisfy your hot chicken cravings...

Amazing chicken! Not super breaded, skin is delicious. Different levels of spicy, no spice all the way to reaper heat. Big tenders, best truffle Mac I've ever had. 10/10 recommend this place

This Nashville hot chicken trend is (for the lack of a better word) -- HOT. As someone who's been to Nashville and has tried Hattie B's and Prince's, I am a pretty tough critic when it comes to these new places. I saw that this opened up near my parents and decided to try it.Hotties is nestled in the shopping area in Chino Hills. There are metered parking as well as some garages. From the outside, there were those line forming guards that night clubs use. This place must get crowded at certain hours. My sister and I got here as they opened on Sunday morning and no one was there and we were on our way.We decided to to share their 3 piece meal with fries. We got the mild level of flavoring to assure that we could taste the chicken. The meal came out to about $12 which is not bad. The portion itself was gigantic (as you can tell by my photos). The chicken was decent - It was hot and juicy. The breading, however, was separated from the chicken which was kind of weird. The flavoring was okay but nothing stellar. The fries had flavoring on them and the dipping sauce was good. All in all, the chicken was decent but not mind blowing.Look, I get the hype surrounding this craze and if you haven't ever had hot chicken, some of these places may blow you away. I think Hotties is good but nothing special. It gets the job done if you want a generic version of Nashville hot chicken.

I'm sorry, but no. The ONLY REASON I'm giving two stars is because the customer service is amazing. I really wanted to like this place because of all the good reviews. I've lived in Nashville and have tried almost all the Hot Chicken places and this place fails miserably.The chicken has a THICK, crunchy crust. Real Nashville hot chicken is crunchy without being extra thick. Nashville hot chicken has flavor. This places chicken taste like salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Essentially the cayenne pepper takes over and the chicken ends up tasting like cayenne. This chicken tastes like they dip it in some sauce and the flavor is only on the outside of the chicken and only on the skin instead of the flavor actually being IN the chicken. I was hoping for a place to make me feel like I was getting real Nashville Hot Chicken. This place isn't it. So sorry cause I hate giving bad reviews. Just very disappointed.

Very good fried chicken, only has legs, thighs and tenders, along with a sandwich. Sometimes the line can be a bit much. Looks like everything is freshly made when you order it and you can visit other stores while you wait.

So excited to find a Nashville hot chicken spot out in Chino Hills! I ordered the hot chicken sandwich medium and it was really bomb! The skin was crispy and dripping with hot sauce just right. The medium was a perfect level spicy for me but I might try to fire sauce next time. The chicken was cooked perfectly so that the meat was so tender and juicy!We also got the truffle mac and cheese. It is pretty big and loaded with truffle oil and mushrooms.Really friendly service and staff. They gave me a free drink since it was our first time.Definitely will be back here and bring the fam next time!

Amazing spicy chicken! Good portions for what you pay. It's a small place so it's hard to find a spot to sit at when it's busy but luckily there's an area to sit outside since it's in a outdoor shopping area.

Don't usually leave a poor review, but when it takes over an hour for one item and the rest of your order gets cold, that's a bit much. Change up the workflow to get food out faster.

Review №39

Where to start......Menu: super restricted menu that makes it hard to order a variety without spending a fortune on something worthless. Gotta do a combo and no drink included.Now the food part..... the food was horrible and tasteless. Its fried then set under a heat lamp to then be dipped in "slather" (they call it) which is lard and butter..... they said but didn't know exactly. Then seasoning of cayenne caked to the chicken . The breading was super hard and thick, covered in goop of cayenne and lard. Chicken I got was cold, only 1 piece hot. Fries were cold and bread was solid hard. Coleslaw was ok, nothing to write home about. Mac n cheese was good but not served hot........ I don't know what the hype is about this place but they're expensive, tasteless and overrated by a long shot. Honestly, some of the worst chicken I've ever had. Service staff was friendly, on the upside.

Came here on a Sunday and ordered the two chicken slider combo. That's a chicken tender topped with pickles and creamy cole slaw in a soft burger bun. It's served with a generous portion of seasoned crinkle fries. They were hot, crispy, and well seasoned! The tenders were juicy and nicely breaded. However, the slaw and breading falls apart easily, so it gets pretty messy. I think they use the same seasoning as the fries but with additional chili powder for the chicken, adjusted to your liking. I got the medium and it wasn't too spicy. The chicken felt like it was still lacking some flavor underneath the breading. The current bun is sweet but sticks to your teeth. I would've liked a better bun just to enhance the quality and texture of each bite. It's $10 for essentially 2 chicken tender. That's not cheap and majority of it is fries. So I do expect the finer details.Overall, it's a pleasant meal but having been to all the biggest Nashville chicken competitors from LA, OC, to SB...it's not enough for me to crave and drive out here. I'd say, it's good for where it's at. Luckily traffic wasn't too bad today (only a 30 min drive) and the food was ready in 15 minutes!

Great quality chicken and spice levels that rival LA hot chicken places like Howling Ray's or Dave's Hot Chicken but closer to the IE and hardly a wait. Definitely worth trying if you love spicy chicken!

Had Hotties a few weeks back and it was delicious. The place was barely open 3 weeks and you could tell that the staff was trying to fill orders as fast as they were coming in. John the manager was friendly offering sodas to those that had to wait, they were out of the Mac and Cheese I ordered for the family so I was given a $10 credit for my next visit which we are planning for this week. If you like it hot this is the place! We got mild and medium both were good, the kids loved the tenders and wifey had the sliders, while I went with the 3 piece. Worth the time I had to wait for the food!

Review №46

Their chicken was well cooked and the skin was crunchy but it lacked flavor. We got the mild and medium chicken tenders and the skin was falling off and we were only left with the white chicken inside. It was missing a lot of flavor on most parts and we only got parts of spicyness. I suggest adding more flavor to the sauce they use. It was okay but I wouldn't come back unless they changed the recipe.

Saw this place pop up on my local Facebook feed. Was in the area Pokémon hunting so dropped on by. Initial reaction was the place looked like it was still being set up. Tables and chairs about. I ordered the sliders. Wife got the truffle Mac and daughter got the tenders. Food took about 15 mins.Wife loved the Mac and cheese. The sliders were good. I got them medium spicy level. Good amount of spice but will try fire next time. They do add Cajun spice to their fries. My daughter does not do spice very well. She tried a few and surprisingly kept eating them. Will be back!
