It’s no easy feat to deliver the city’s best rendition of hot chicken, the spicy-crusted fried bird that’s perhaps Nashville’s defining dish. But the ever-present line snaking out the door of this Midtown spot is the first clue that the fryers here produce a damn qualified contender. The proof is in the pudding, so to speak: With five levels of heat ranging from “Southern” (mild) to “Shut the Cluck Up!!!” (very, very hot), Hattie B’s moist bird boasts a well-seasoned and super-crisp exterior. To cool your mouth down, dig into the mayo-laced red-skinned potato salad and crunch on the complimentary icebox pickles.

It's nearly impossible to visit Nashville and not go here - Hattie B's is a city staple and the hot chicken is a must try.  Despite the name, the menu is really varied - and yes, even if you don't like spicy foods, there's something on the menu for you.  The vanilla waffles are a perfect pairing for any heat level of chicken, and the cole slaw is a great accompaniment to your meal. Be prepared to wait in line to order, and bring a friend so you can be sure to have a seat in the shade once you've ordered.



Amazing Hot Chicken...Definitely try the Hot! heat level. Juicy on the inside and nice crunch!  Was my first stop in Nashville! What a great way to start my trip!
