We stopped here for a quick bite in our way to FL. I've never had "hot chicken" but I'm glad. I did! My teenage son ordered the Chicken & Waffles. He was highly impressed! My husband got the Hot Chicken sandwich and I got the tenders. Their potato salad was also amazing and needed to counteract the spice! Great food!

This chicken is a dry rub, not saucy. Best way to order is to get the fried grill cheese, Peppercheese, with chicken on top! Em, fattening but yummy. The chicken is really spicy. More than Hattie b or even typical hot chicken places. Ask the cashier to let you try a sample heat before eating at this place if its... More

We liked the Nashville chicken here a lot. Caution: there are 7 grades of heat. I got hot...and wow...it was almost too hot (can't imagine what the xhot and xxhot tasted like). The prices are reasonable and I would recommend coming here...just order the mild if you want spicy!

Great Nashville style Hot Chicken, served in several different ways. Tries the royale, which is fried chicken served on top of a fried grilled cheese sandwich and it was wonderful. I also like the waffle, fried apples and Hot Chicken entre. Fries, beans, slaw are all very good too.

Everything we ate was delicious. The cashier was a bit of a prima donna. Aside from her attitude this trip was perfect. The Royal (deep fried grilled cheese) was a meal to itself. Important!!!! Take it from a guy that loves hot food, the medium is pretty damn hot. I can't imagine what XX Hot is

Great chicken, but no kidding it's hot! Went with mild, and it was still intense. If you're not sure, go with the light mild. They do offer samples before you buy. Just make sure you start with the easy and move hotter. They don't drop the chicken until you order, so if you get a full chicken you'll have to... More

We had a large amount delivered through service and it arrived hot and juicy! The flavor is spot on. Most of us like hot dishes, but the medium was about as high as we ventured. One bite of the hot was painful! But the mild had plenty of flavor and a little kick. The sides are excellent too!!

We ordered for dine in and waited 28 minutes for our order. Once I got our much anticipated whole chicken I was underwhelmed with the dry texture of... More
