Everyone says you have to try "hot chicken" when you visit Nashville...so we did and found Boltons. Most places are in downtown but I would not consider Boltons in downtown. This is put first experience with "hot" chicken and might be the last. Guess our tastebuds are changing because this medium was way too hot for us. Our lips were... More

Well this is my third visit to Nashville within a year. This time however I came armed with a list of restaurants to try. Bolton's made the list! But I was kind of disappointed. First off the location says Downtown Nashville It's On The Fringe? Not sure it would be a good place to go at night. Getting back to... More

When I ordered a hot chicken I was so annoyed when staff asked me if I am sure so many times. Even after the food was delivered they were staring at me. Coming to the chicken, it was rubbed with the hottest seasoning. It was definitely flaming hot by didn't taste at all. The only thing you can feel is... More

I can't exactly comment on how good the food taste being that I nearly had my mouth burned off and thats coming from someone who likes a little spice. This place is famous for their spicy dishes more particularly their whiting and catfish sandwiches. If you don't like spicy, I suggest you do the NO SPICE option. Otherwise even the... More

The line was to long at Hattie b's so we decided to come here. Don't judge a book by its cover. The staff was great and very helpful. And the food was very good I got the medium and it was spicy but manageable. The spaghetti, green beans, mac and cheese were all good. I would recommend checking it out!

Anthony Bourdain was right. It burns going and and the next day too. Wow! Dirt cheap and excellent. Get the catfish too.

We was directed to Boltons by our Uber driver for the best fish and chicken in Nashville. We arrived with a party of 10 to a small no frills establishment with plenty of parking. Seating is limited but on a rather slow Sunday night, our large party was easily accommodated. Our party order several dishes and was pleased with many... More

This is a great small spot with no frills except the painted chickens on the building. I got the medium and my boyfriend got the mild chicken. I enjoy spicy food so the medium was just right. I think I could have handled a bit spicier but I wanted to enjoy my food. The chicken, Mac and cheese and greens... More

Best chicken we had in Nashville! Super moist and tasty but ask for mild spice. Staff helpful and friendly

It's hard to enjoy a firecracker to the face when rolling 80 mph down I65, but this guy did it. I had the 3 piece chicken tender plate, mild (which is their midpoint on the heat spectrum) w/ corn and mashed potatoes. Since this was my third and probably final visit to Boltons, I had to write about my experience.... More
