As the others have said, don't bring a date here. Don't come here looking for great french fries, or a salad and a chicken burger. Don't even bring the whole family together here. Don't stop in just to use the bathroom just because you're in the neighborhood.
Just show up and eat the spicy chicken. It is the best fried chicken in BC. The skin is crunchy and beautiful without being greasy like Church's. The meat if usually flavorful well past the surface unlike KFC. The chicken is decently sized and well priced unlike Popeye's when they were around.
I've even had the $18 fried chicken lunch at Fuel on 4th, but despite their noticeably superior starting point (polderside free range chicken I believe), the chicken batter there doesn't cling to the chicken properly, and doesn't have as satisfying a crunch as the chicken at L.A.
the fries are pretty mediocre, the potato coleslaw and salad are typical of a fast food joint, the diet coke is awful but I drink it anyway, but the chicken is good enough to make me rave about the place to anyone who will listen.
I occasionally order the famous recipe chicken, which is a blend of more interesting seasonings than on the spicy chicken, but the flavor doesn't penetrate the meat the same way. Once you're past the surface, the rest of the chicken is only ok. (the famous recipe wings are great though).
If you love fried chicken, this is it. Don't f*ck around. Go eat here now.
