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

We tried hot chicken tenders. They were plump and crunchy and fresh and juicy and as spicy as you want it. Mild spicy has some heat. Medium is very hot.

Call ahead to order, 20-40mins. Good thing we had marshmallow stuffed cookies, probably saved the lives of our tongues. Good tasty spicy; just like your food and love should be.

All good things are worth waiting for and this chicken is worth waiting for. The crunch, the heat, the juiciness of the chicken is amazing. They are probably the hottest chicken in Nashville so watch yourself. Start low and work your way up. If you think you can handle it go one lower. They pride themselves with the heat. The... More

Amazing, delicious. Deep fried grilled cheese? Yes. With hot chicken strips on top? Yes. But what about fried apples on top of that? Indeed. Just be careful of the heat levels. I love spicy foods, and Mild is plenty of heat for me. Medium is a struggle, and hot is almost unbearable. But go! It's so good.
