Fried Chicken, Harold’s Chicken Shack

When this Chicago transplant branched out West, it brought not only its insanely crunchy fried chicken but also its curious chicken-ordering lingo. You’ll hear seasoned professionals asking for “mild sauce on,” meaning “I’d like sweet barbecue sauce drizzled all over my chicken and a bed of french fries and white bread underneath it.” Those really in the know ask for “mild sauce on, hot sauce on the side,” for that perfect combination of crunchy, sweet, salty and spicy.
