The fried chicken sandwich trend shows no signs of letting up in Las Vegas, and now a newcomer to the city plans to open near UNLV. Angry Chickz out of California plans to open its 10th location and first in Las Vegas in April in the former Smashburger space on Maryland Parkway.

The fast-casual restaurant specializes in Nashville hot chicken, with heat levels ranging from country with no heat to angry made with Carolina Reaper peppers, the hottest peppers known to man. Diners who choose this option have to sign a waiver. The restaurant calls its medium sauce “perfect heat.”

Customers can order one of four combos with two sliders, hot chicken tenders on white bread, a slider and a tender, or two tenders on buttery rice. Side options include angry fries, angry Mac and cheese, coleslaw, or additional sliders or tenders.

Other locations that span from San Jose to Oceanside offer takeout and delivery options, with online ordering.
