Howlin' Ray’s has been taking Angelenos and tourists on a journey to Nashville’s hot chicken scene since 2015.
What started off as a food truck founded and operated by Angeleno native Johnny Ray Zone and his wife Amanda Chapman who was raised on southern soul food achieved such success that the eatery has since expanded into two brick and mortar restaurant destinations, without sacrificing any of its authentic original flavors.
With its flagship location in Chinatown and another location in Pasadena, visitors can typically expect to spend about an hour or more standing in line to get a taste of this coveted spicy chicken culinary creation.
