Foursquare Tips

  • Spice lovers rejoice, Nashville natives love their fried chicken with some fire and Prince's Hot Chicken Shack lives up to the name. As seen on Man v Food Nation.
  • this old lady was in here in a housecoat, so clearly clothing is optional in the joint!
  • don't order the hottest, 'hot' is hot enough.. mild is still pretty damn warm. Bring your own drinks (and lots of em) and wash your hands before touching your eyes! Be prepared for a wait / line.
  • The medium is plenty hot. The hot is painfully hot. The extra hot had me seeing stars once, and someone else had to drive me home. My mouth waters uncontrollably whenever I think of this chicken.
  • Cash only!!
  • Gentlemen, if you've handled anything above medium, wash your hands BEFORE using the bathroom. Trust me.
  • Let it cool off a little. Temperature is a multiplier for the spice.
  • Get it hot. End of tip.
  • Wait time calculation: your order# - most recently called order# x 3 minutes = wait time.
  • 70 years as Nashville's original 'hot chicken shack.' 2013 James Beard Foundation America's Classic. Enough said. [Eater 18 Member]
  • There is one serious gap between medium and hot. Beware.
  • Puts a fire in your belly and you'll love every second of it! The hot is HOT, the extra hot is like the devil himself made it but still wouldn't touch it. Think before you eat, don't be a champ!
  • Yuuuummmm. I love Princes hot chicken!
  • The hottest thing this side of Dixie. Wakes up the touring musicians late night.
  • Chicken so spicy, I still feel my mouth tingling. The bread is extremely hot. Could have handled hot but got medium - such a noob. Great service, great customers!
  • Bring your own milk. Milk helps with the heat.
  • Cash only.
  • Addictively good chicken. The medium is just right. And the baked beans are the best I have ever eaten (with strips of pulled pork stirred in).
  • great freakin chicken
  • Go to Prince's Hot Chicken Shack and get the Extra Hot.
