Dave’s Hot Chicken

First up on our list is Dave’s Hot Chicken. This vendor started making waves in Los Angeles in 2017 and has since added locations across the country – including two in the Coachella Valley (which we frequent!). Their Nashville-style hot chicken is known for being juicy, spicy, and downright addictive. If you’re a fan of hot chicken, then this is a must-try. Even if you’re not a fan of spicy food, Dave’s has a range of heat levels to choose from, so you can find something that suits your taste buds.
