Everyone told me that I had to go to Hattie B’s fried chicken for some hot chicken. It’s definitely a place to go to when in Nashville but just be prepared to wait. We waited 45 ... Read more
minutes just to order our food! We shared the Large Dark Combo which comes with two sides and we choose mac and cheese and greens. The sides were good but the winner was the chicken, it was fall off the bone chicken! I would come back to eat here again but maybe I can get a to go order so I don’t have to wait in line!

It isn't the first hot chicken restaurant in Nashville, and it is likely the most touristy... But that doesn't stop locals from flooding the place because it's just that good. make sure to get there early because the line will loop around the block. While the dark meat is always a great pick, try to wings for something different. They're fried whole and incredibly juicy.

Omg make sure you are in line by 10:30 at the latest because the line wraps around immediately at opening! I got mild chicken tenders and the food was sooooo good!

A wonderful place with great food. My advice if you don't want to wait an hour in line? Order your food and take it to go, you won't regret it.

Good chicken, excellent sides. VERY busy! I recommend ordering on-line to skip the line that leaves you waiting in the hot sun.

Nashville is known for Hot Chicken and this is a great place to give it a try! Located in mid-town area --- on the other side of downtown near Vanderbilt ... You won't go wrong here, trust me!

I believe Nashville are the originators of spicy hot chicken and Hattie B's is one of our very best that Nashville has to offer. You absolutely can't go wrong with this savory chicken spot that features beers brewed right here in Nashville.

The best hot chicken in town!! I like the wings platter served hot with potato salad and coleslaw and some lemonade to cool you down!

We tried eating here about 3 times and left because of the lines but on the third attempt we stayed. Well worth the wait!!! Best chicken ever!

Nashville is known for their hot fried chicken so we checked out Hattie B's. At 7:30pm the line was around the corner to get in! We waited about an hour but it was worth it! Four heat levels to choose from, yummy southern sides and beer!

Pretty good. The line is a little long though, and I'm not quite sure it's worth the wait in the busiest time of day.

Whew if you like hot chicken, this is the place for you. Wouldn't recommend going on a hot Saturday afternoon in the heat of summer but once your in, totally worth the wait. Make sure your taste buds are ready.

The best fried chicken of Nashville! The chicken is amazing but expect to wait in line for an hour depending on when you go. But it's worth the wait!

A family-owned Hot Chicken joint in Nashville's Midtown. Heat ranges from 'mild' to 'shut the cluck up,' plus a roster of southern sides, beer on tap, and Sunday brunch.

Nashville is known for it's hot chicken and this is the place to get some! Prepare for a wait if going during lunchtime as there will be a line. Fun experience, though.
