Crack Shack closing both Los Angeles locations
By Kerry Slater
A popular fried-chicken spot is closing both of its Los Angeles restaurants which include a location in Westfield Century City.
As reported by Eater Los Angeles, Crack Shack has closed both its Pasadena and Westfield Century City locations.
“The Crack Shack has been proud to serve the communities of Pasadena and Century City through ongoing dine-out nights with local non-profit organizations, donating to local school events, delivering sandwiches to nursing homes and, throughout COVID, providing safe meals to front line workers,” the company told Eater. “We have re-designed The Crack Shack prototype, and have plans to explore other markets with smaller real estate footprints in the coming months.”
The San Diego-based chain first opened in Century City nearly three years ago. When the restaurant first opened, we reviewed it writing “The sandwich, which cost $12.50, was worth every bite. Often, fried-chicken sandwiches suffer from dry, poor quality meat but at Crack Shack the bird takes center stage. The thick, juicy, lightly breaded and fried chicken breast is tasty enough to eat alone.”
