Welcome To The Baba’s Chicken Blog!

Hey there, and welcome to the very-first Baba’s Chicken blog post! We’re extremely excited to be providing content for our fans and customers. As we continue writing, you can expect to find articles about our restaurant and menu, Nashville hot chicken, fried chicken, and even cooking tips! Today, we’re going to keep things simple by sharing a bit about our business, what we do, and where we came from! So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Who We Are

Baba’s Chicken is a SoCal Nashville Hot Chicken Restaurant with two locations, one in Riverside and the other in Costa Mesa. While we have two amazing permanent locations today, Baba’s Chicken started as a pop-up restaurant after our co-founders were inspired by the amazing hot chicken at Howlin’ Rays. In fact, Howlin’ Rays was our introduction to Nashville Hot Chicken, which quickly became our food passion.

After discovering our love for this incredible type of fried chicken, we realized that we wanted to start our own Nashville hot chicken venture. Before starting our pop-up, we spent countless hours doing research and practicing to perfect our unique recipe. It was our founders’ goal to ensure that we were offering our community delicious comfort food that brought memories of a Dad cooking up your favorites on the grill.

Once we were satisfied, we began popping up around southern California and selling our amazing Nashville hot chicken. Our pop-ups quickly gained popularity and momentum, giving us the opportunity to open our first brick and mortar location in Riverside. Located in the Foodlab, we have a great spot to enjoy in-person dining or to order delivery.

After more hard work and amazing dedication from our customers, we’ve been able to recently open our second location in Costa Mesa, which we couldn’t be more excited about! Now, we’re just working to get better at what we do best and continue providing you the best fried chicken in the Los Angeles area.

What We Offer

As you can probably tell by now, we offer Nashville Hot Chicken at our two locations! Specializing in chicken tenders, chicken sandwiches, delicious appetizers, and more, we offer the Nashville hot chicken dishes that you know, love, and look for when you get that irresistible craving for crispy, lip-smacking hot chicken. And while we can’t recommend any of our hot chicken dishes enough, we want to focus on something that, we think, sets us apart from other joints in the area.

At Baba’s Chicken, we offer different levels of spiciness for each of our Nashville hot chicken. We start with the classic fried chicken, and slowly ramp up the heat with levels of mild through extreme. If you’re a true heat head, let’s just say you need to challenge yourself with our extreme heat hot chicken!

We personally love spice and seeing how much we can crank up the heat for those people like us who love to push their limits and feel the heat! And while we wish we could share our recipe for how we craft delicious, ultra spicy chicken, we can’t give away our secret recipe!

If you’re not huge on spice, don’t worry! We have a heat level for every pallet, and our friendly, caring staff will make sure that you’re able to get the hot chicken dish you’ll love!
