Prince's was the first official Nashville style Hot Chicken I tried and still for me ranks the highest amongst the cities fried chicken establishments. This place would be really easy to miss if you were just driving by, describing it as a "hole-in-the-wall" place is spot on. Just don't judge this book by its cover. We ordered the Hot as a base to start with and it didn't let me down. It was perfectly spicy, crispy on the outside and tender in the middle. This place knows how to perfectly cook a chicken quarter. The Hot was spicy enough to force me to slow my roll and make my cheeks sweat. What I like most about Prince's is the taste and flavor, salty and full of spice! A must if you're hungry and looking for a culinary adventure!

This is the best chicken that I have ever had in my life. I eat it every week because I'm addicted to it. I don't go here for anything other than the best chicken I've ever had. I do get fries each time and they are good. A great heat level for me is medium. The spices seem to come alive at that spice level. The worst part about this place is that your chicken comes out so fresh and hot that you may have to wait for it to cool down before you can eat it. It's like torture.

Expect a lot of local flavor and visitors from out of state. The food is delicious and exceptionally spicy. If you don't arrive when the doors open, plan on waiting in line for a long time. I ordered the medium spice chicken breast and a side of potato salad with some sweet tea. The cost for all that was $8, so I dropped a few bucks on the top jar. We were lucky enough to get a seat because we arrived after the shack opened. The food was very hot and spicy. Prepare to sweat. I downed a glass of sweet tea and a fruit punch before it was all over.

The best of the best. *NOW a few things if you are FROM OUT OF TOWN that you should really know about before you stop by! Or if you are trying to decide to stop by.* This is for the folk who like to grab their belongings extra tightly when you see a person of color enter the room, This place is not for you! This is probably going to be considered a "shady" part of town if you are use to SUV'S and suburb livin. There are people selling bootleg CD'S outside the place and the parking lot is always full with a couple of people hanging out by the entrance, smoking a cigarette and just hanging out. BUT i have never once felt threatened or unsafe while eating here with my friends. I love this place to death. The only reason i am having to state this is because i was here the other day and witnessed a middle class family walk in, LITERALLY huddled up close to one another as if they were expecting to be robbed. they didnt end up staying long enough to place their order which bring me to my list of "Tips" 1. There is about 4 or 6 tables total in the joint, either wait around for one to open up and wipe of the table or yourself or order to go. 2. Chicken takes about 15-20 minutes to be prepared add an extra 20 in their if its during their busy hours or on the weekend, SO CALL IN YOUR ORDER. 3. This place DOES NOT take debit/ credit. BRING CASH ONLY. 4. they aren't that expensive, a breast and fries runs you 8 dollars tops 5. Mild is probably comparable to eating 7 jalapenos in a row, so yes, mild/ medium is hot but i recommend this for starters. If you are a baby order below that and take a bite out of your more braver friend's plate. if you are looking the washed down version of this then try hattie b's, but hot chicken started here so keep that in mind! does not get better than this!

the taste of the chicken is great. what I hate about prince's is that they are too damn trifling to keep their grease fresh. this was my final time eating at prince's because the next day I had the runs out of this world. people if u want hot chicken without the diarrhea, try 400%. and the messed up part about it that I didn't even get hot, I got mild and it didn't even have a bite to it like it use to. they need to change that damn grease or find out what in the hell the problem is. they will tell u it's the spices but when have spices every cause anybody to have the shits.

This place was very over hyped. Upon arrival I had a feeling I maybe shiv'ed at any moment. It took about 10 minutes to order, and about 2 hours to get my order. I purchased the breast piece with the potato salad. I seriously could have made 40 of these in the amount of time it took me to get mine. Upon getting it, I thought finally this is going to be life changing. Not only was it super greasy (temp not high enough in the fryer) it was also EXTREMELY over cooked. It tasted like eating the inside of Dominoes pizza box. The sides were the worst, they had some sort of mop water after taste, not to mention the portion size was smaller than the average chihuahua turd. My friend that got to coleslaw hated it. The place is so sketchy I thought my credit card info was going to be stolen from the soda machine. (PS. everything else is cash only. Guess some of this isn't reported on their 1099) If you are a suburban white family and want your family to know what it feels like to be stared down at and truly scared, give this place a shot. If not I would suggest else ware. I honestly thought KFC made chicken better than this place. Perhaps everyone here just gave up, you probably would get better service from a 5 dollar hooker at truck stop.
