At the very western edge of Burbank, Hades Hot Chicken serves up some very tasty fried chicken and delicious sides from a nondescript strip mall near West Victory Boulevard and North Clybourn Avenue. The spice level is easily customizable, from no spice, mild, medium, medium-hot and Hades-Hot, which registers between one and two million on the Scoville scale. A dry spice rub is added before each piece is cooked, so diners can get the amount of heat they want, on a scale from no burn to eye-watering and mouth-flaming.
