Flavor Flav is bringing the flavor of soul to Las Vegas!

On Friday, the rapper/reality TV star celebrated the opening of his new takeout restaurant, Flavor Flav's House of Flavor, that boasts a finger-licking good menu including fried chicken (his own recipe) and sweet potato tots.

Despite it just opening (which happened to fall on the star's 53rd birthday), the takeout spot already has several reviews on Yelp.

"Not a big menu right now but the chicken is delicious, homemade taste and far above all the fast food places," says one Yelper.

"The seasoning is DYNO-MITE!! Super crispy, too. Hint: I didn't peep any hot sauce so bring your own," advises another reviewer.

This is the second foray into the restaurant business for the Flavor or Love star (real name: William Jonathan Drayton Jr.).

Last year, he opened Flav's Fried Chicken with fellow restauranteur Peter Cimino in Clinton, Iowa, which ended up closing down four months later due to poor business decisions.

Being a restauranteur runs in Flav's blood -- his father was the owner of the Soul Diner in their hometown, Freeport, Long Island, N.Y.
