Time Out says

With several locations throughout the Chicagoland area, Joe Fontana’s Nashville hot chicken is a go-to spot for folks who love fried chicken sandwiches and tongue-tingling heat. With both brioche and glazed donut bun options, as well as six heat levels—ranging from Country (No Heat) to Insanity (RIP)—you can satisfy the cravings and spice tolerance of everyone in your group. All locations serve beer, but the West Town outpost is the only one with a full service bar—and you can score a chicken tender for $1.50 with the purchase of any cocktail.
