Re: “Eastside Fish [Closed]

Perhaps I went on a bad night, but being from Louisiana, I find good seafood a little more difficult to find. I did a quick search to find the "best" seafood in Nashville and this restaurant popped up. We ordered the white fish. The fish were extremely greasy and smelled and tasted awful. It took two days to get the smell of this fish off of my hands and out of my hair and my house. But like I said, maybe it was just a bad night for them.

Re: “Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

I've eaten here several times now, and there's not a lot to say other than the chicken is really good; My favorite in town. If you know the intersection of 19th & Broadway, you know you shouldn't arrive expecting to park right at the location, so expect to walk a block or more to get there. Sometimes you get lucky and there is a space in the lot during off-peak. Also, you are going to wait for your chicken; It's cooked to order and the kitchen is small. Again, arriving off-peak will get you faster service, and ensure all the seats aren't taken. Finally, the chicken is fried proper, and tastes great. I recommend the dark portions. You get an entire joint, thigh and leg, and they are much more moist than the white portions. Skip the small plates and pony up the extra couple of bucks for the large plates. Take home the extra pieces of chicken for a midnight snack, as it's well worth the minimal added cost. I've tried all the heat: The Hot is REALLY hot for most folks. The Damn Hot is my favorite, but I would not recommend Damn Hot or Shut-the-cluck-up to those who are not melt-your-face junkies like I am. If you find after the fact that your order is too mild, they'll happily provide you with a ramikin of their sauce on the side. I always get greens and fries with my plate, but really, let's face it, you don't go to Hattie B's for the sides. The greens are good, the fries are standard issue crinkle fries, and they taste fine. The banana pudding gets raved about, but I haven't tried it. The beer is a real plus at a hot chicken joint, because nothing goes better with fried food of your choice than an cold brew. The staff has always been very nice. So, in conclusion, I highly recommend Hattie B's. Five stars for the chicken and staff, but the parking and seating bring down the rating just a tad, let's say to about 4.2 stars. Enjoy!

Re: “Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

We were starving and wanted something hot but we also wanted chicken so we went to Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. When we arrived, the aroma met us at the door. The first thing I saw was Miss Renita with her big grin, and a big ass chalkboard menu on the wall. The décor is nice and the establishment is very clean. This chicken joint does not have a lot of seating inside, but it has plenty on the covered front porch.

They offer white and dark meat chicken, wings, tenders (grilled or fried), and ½ bird. The temps that you can get are Southern which has no heat; Mild a touch of heat, Hot they say is just right, and DAMN HOT. They also offer various southern side dishes, desserts; beer, fountain drinks, tea, and lemonade (needed some more sugar). I sampled the southern greens they were ok, but not the favorite. We both ordered DAMN HOT tenders with some fries, pimento mac & cheese (creamy and stupendous), baked beans, and slaw. When that sauce says “DAMN HOT” it felt like the devil was tap dancing on my tongue with hot shit on his shoes. The chicken was tasty (tasted a lot of cayenne pepper), but all I could finish was the sides, pickles, and bread. On the other hand he finished my chicken and his and didn’t even take a sip of water until it was all gone. One thing is the menu said “JUMBO TENDERS” but they were normal size; however we also enjoyed the banana pudding it was really F’ing awesome. We talked to and overheard people saying that the chicken, service, and wait time is better here than at other hot chicken places.

There is not a lot of parking in there lot cause Gigi’s has a sign for most of the spots. The service was great Miss Renita made our night we joked, laughed, and she made us feel right at home. The chicken is worth going back for as well as the staff. This place is a real game changer for midtown.

Re: “Knockout Wings

Best wings in town, no doubt! Our pawnshop eats there all the time, but not often enough for me. Biggest burger around! Cajun fried wings are off the hook.

Re: “Prince's Hot Chicken Shack

Let me start by saying that this rating could be higher. I like this place and LOVE the idea of true Southern-style food. Hot chicken is unique to the South and I am proud of it. I have nothing against Prince's. Please take my feedback without bias, but take it literally. This is for your information. I have eaten here 3 times in the past 1.5 years. The good thing is, the food is pretty good. I am a chili head, and I ordered the quarter chicken, very hot.
The menu and meal are very simple, and that's how it should be. You come here for hot chicken, not sushi. When I received my order, I was defnitely intimidated by the sight of my chicken after hearing horror stories about the heat, but that's why I was there. I carefully disected my chicken with a fork and knife, only to find it wasn't that hot. I proceeded with my bare hands, without a problem. I have made much hotter and tastier, myself, with a 10:1 mix of Dave's Insanity Sauce and Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. The chicken was juicy, but bland...and no, my tastebuds aren't dead!
Before I continue the next 2 PARTS, let me say that I wasn't expecting this experience to rival J. Alexander's.
If you like clean kitchens, do not look through the order window into the kitchen. You will want to leave. The good news is that the hot greaase will kill off the dirt. I don't understand how they don't get shut down by the Health Dept.
If you don't have 2 hours for lunch, don't gp to Prince's. I don't know what the deal is, but they open at Noon...well, that's what the sign on the door says. They don't fire up the grease until 12:15 pm or whenever they decide to show up to work. My colleagues and I arrived at 11:45 am and didn't receive our orders until 12:45. This was not a fluke as I had the same experience the next two visits (hoping the first time was a fluke).
I hope the owners read this and take the criticism well. I know, from my own experience as well as other patrons', if the service was better and they opened at 11am, they would take their business to the next level.
It's worth the visit if you have the time.

Re: “Nuttin' But Wings

If you have a Super Bowl Party order your wings from somewhere else. I placed an order for 100 wings the Friday before the game and asked they be ready by 4pm. When I went to get them I had to wait 2 1/2 hours before they were ready. The owner of the restaurant had an attitude of not caring. Next time I'll go to Wing Basket
