Known for Nashville's unique deep-fried poultry specialty, spiced from mild to ultrahot levels.- Google
"The chicken was very spicy (and I just had the mild!"
"It's what I'd call a "soul food" spot so to speak, and it's worth the wait."

Good luck recognizing which shop in the strip. :) Once you enter feels as if you are back in time, ordered some medium spicy chicken with a friend who got wings. Presentation was normal nothing out of this world, but let me now get to the chicken... It was spiced just right, hit every part of the mouth n tongue... Great flavor everywhere. Next time I would get a to go and destroy it at home

Good stuff. Princes and Moores Hot Chicken in Hendersonville are the best hot chicken anywhere.

The best of the best. also just 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 off the table 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 chicken is very good -- not great (I would prefer Hattie B's), but definitely very good. I take stars off due to various convenience factors. 1) Have you ever tried calling these guys? Have you ever gotten through? Lucky you. I haven't. It's been 2 years. 2) Long lines, long wait time for food... not the best. Overall food is very good, convenience is not, and there are probably better options. But it's the original, so you gotta do it.

Visited here on May 29, 2015. Easily one of my Top 3 chicken restaurants ever. 1. Gus's World Famous - Memphis 2. Harold’s Chicken Shack - Chicago 3. Prince's Hot Chicken. I had the mild, my wife had the medium. If it's your first time, then start with the mild, it has a heat consistency that's slightly spicier than Popeye’s. Not too overwhelming, but enough to let you know it means business, and that anything hotter is not for the faint of heart, or to be taken lightly. The mild chicken has a nice crunch, nice flavor, even heat, great taste. The medium is enough to make you pause and rethink your decision. Crinkle cut fries, evenly seasoned with seasoned salt, and fried to perfection. The restaurant itself is nice, quaint and what you’d expect if you’re familiar with visiting establishments that are not overly commercial, but true gems in their own right. The real show is when someone orders chicken “Hot” or above. All eyes will immediately be on them as they devour their meal, with everyone discretely inquiring “How was it?” I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and am certainly looking forward to making the 3 hr drive from Atlanta to Nashville.

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.
