Spicy chicken sandwich purveyor Hot Lola’s planning a late June opening in Rosslyn

(Updated at 4:10 p.m.) Rosslyn is about to get a bit more spicy with the opening of Hot Lola’s later this month.

The spicy chicken sandwich shop finally has a tentative opening date for its second Arlington location, with ownership now aiming for a soft opening on June 17, general manager Alan Vo tells ARLnow. Since they’ll still be training staff until June 21, everyone who walks in for an order during that time will get 30% off.

Hot Lola’s will be occupying 1501 Wilson Blvd at the corner of Wilson Blvd and N. Oak Street, sandwiched between Taco Rock and Miracles Salon. It’s the former location of Mediterranean fast casual eatery Roti, which closed in late 2021 after a decade in business there.

We first reported in February that Hot Lola’s was expanding into Rosslyn. The restaurant’s first location at the food hall inside Ballston Quarter mall opened three years ago.

The eatery from noted D.C. area chef Kevin Tien has received a number of accolades for its Sichuan-spiced, Nashville-inspired hot chicken sandwich. The eatery also sells wings, tenders, and fries.

The menus at the two locations will be similar, at least initially. Vo says they’ll introduce breakfast and “special sandwiches” at a later date at the Rosslyn location.

There will also be another difference.  The Rosslyn location has applied for a Virginia ABC license to serve beer, wine, and mixed beverages, while the Ballston location does not sell alcohol.

Hot Lola’s isn the only new eatery that has or will be coming to Rosslyn. Japanese restaurant Yuraku opened last month in a somewhat-obscured space while boutique market, while cafe and high-end convenience store Foxtrot is aiming for the fall.
