Re: “Chain restaurants are now serving 'Nashville Hot Chicken' to the nation, but can their offerings stand up to the real thing?

Facebook pay $60 per hour my last pay check was $78526 w0rking 10 hours a week 0nline. My younger brother friend has been averaging 11k for months now and he w0rks about 22 hours a week. I cant believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do.. .,

My wife and I have become big fans of Chef Big Shake's places down in Franklin, too. They have a nice taste, and plenty hot at the hot level for me. Love Hattie B's too, and the only thing I ever liked about working on Dickerson Pike was Prince's.

I would like to know which of the mediocre chain chicken choices was preferred, for those of us where the authentic Hot Chicken is not an option.

Hattie B is the best, followed by KFC. Prince's was a big disappointment on my last trip, a month ago. The chicken was small, with little meat, like an Eiteopian chicken. Over priced for what you get. I rate it a tourist trap

Coke and water for heat reduction? What kind of amateurs are you? Both of those make it worse! Try milk and bread for spicy heat reduction. Mediocre!

Bolton's is the best...but it's not a chain.

(Reading comprehension is not strong in this crowd.)

If you can't STFU about how much you love hot chicken, you arrived in Nashville in the last 3 years.

The tenders aren't the same, you have to eat the on-the-bone chicken to get the good stuff IMO. Maybe the chains didn't offer any other version . . .

Re: “Chain restaurants are now serving 'Nashville Hot Chicken' to the nation, but can their offerings stand up to the real thing?

...so we've got 1500 international rugby players coming to Nashville for a tournament in May, and I've been telling them for over a year now that if they eat nothing else while they're in Music City, they MUST try our hot chicken at least once (just not the night before a match!) One of them messaged me a couple of weeks ago telling me he'd had KFC's "Nashville Hot Chicken" and didn't really care for it.

I 'bout cried.

Thanks for validating my emphatic plea that he NOT judge our local delicacy based on KFC's bastardization!

Re: “Chain restaurants are now serving 'Nashville Hot Chicken' to the nation, but can their offerings stand up to the real thing?

@hotchickennative, @HotChickenCoalition, et al.: I encourage you guys to read the article in full, where Megan clearly states, as Elizabeth reiterates in her comment, the point was not to find the best hot chicken in Nashville ("It's not like we need a taste test to tell you that Prince's sets the bar, right?" is a line worth noting). The point, as the headline states, was to see how chain restaurants' "Nashville Hot Chicken," as well as relative local newcomers, stack up against our control (in this case 400 Degrees, chosen in part because they have tenders).

But. Again. This is all in the article.

No Bolton's or Helen's? These are in the top three with Prince's chicken. Prince's doesn't have tenders but the other two do. Obviously, non natives are doing this taste testing.

The purpose was to test the chains, not determine the best hot chicken in Nashville. Thus the omission of several local favorites

Jim and Nick's really is an underrated chain. I try not to spend money on food outside the confines of my home because I am super frugal but I could eat the biscuits at Jim and Nick's all day and then throw in some good BBQ, slaw and mac/cheese....mmmmmmm

Agreed. Bolton's is known for their tenders. And after Prince's, longest tenured HC place in Nashville. A glaring omission.

No Bolton's? Why Scene, why must you ignore one of the greats?
