The Crack Shack is a famous fried chicken place in San Diego, and their first LA location is in the Century City mall. This mall seems to get busier every time we visit, so it’s not where we’d ideally like to spend time eating a fried chicken sandwich, but we will say the ones here are pretty great, and they have a full bar. The classic Coop Deville is good, but we especially like the Firebird, with a just-spicy-enough fried thigh, crispy onions, pickles, and ranch sauce. Don’t try and keep things healthy-ish by skipping the fries either - they’re fried in duck and chicken fat here, which means they’re fantastic. And because this is Century City (office worker capital of the world) there’s a solid Happy Hour too.
