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.

This is your typical hole in the wall/sketchy city chicken place. The food here was incredible and without a doubt worth a visit. As someone who eats tons of hot food I ordered the medium level and was pleased with the heat level. For those that like the heat, go hot at the very least, the spices have a noticeable kick to them but its not impossible to handle like some of these reviews would make you believe. My only complaint is that the orders come out one at a time, meaning your food is fresh but I didn't understand why they couldn't throw a couple orders in at the same time when the line was constant. As long as you are prepared to wait 20+ minutes for your meal you will not be disappointed.

A local tradition, Prince's is less of a restaurant and more of a religious experience. The lines are long, the seating is uncomfortable, and the sides are limited- but the chicken itself is unlike anything else on Earth. Order medium for a balance between flavor and heat or hot for something hotter than anything you'll find in a chain restaurant. For best results, eat as take-out at home with plenty of beverages. Tourists should definitely plan a pilgrimage to here- it is as synonymous with Nashville as the Opryland Hotel and the Ryman.

This place is a bit sketchy but has really good chicken. It is fried really well and is moist and juicy. They know how to cook. It is pretty much a straight cayenne spice. It is hot and tasty if that is your thing. I like hot, and hot was HOT! I think it is cooked very small batch. Don't be in a hurry, even at 2pm on a Tuesday. It was about a 45 minute wait. I liked it and would go back again. The people were super nice and the food is worth the wait. This is a one of a kind experience.

The chicken was more than I expected! Loved it. If I ever come to Nashville, I will stop there. The hole in the wall restaurants are normally where the best food is. It's in the cut too. I found out about it on the Travel Channel, decided to stop by while I was in town to see Beyonce. I gave it 4 stars because of the almost 1 hour wait! But the chicken made it worth it! Will definitely be back!

I'm a fan of spicy food to the max. This chicken is the max.. If the place could maybe spruce things up and take pride in the ambiance of things, I feel this place could boom exceptionally. If you're looking for something hot enough to knock your socks off then this is definitely the place. I asked for the hottest chicken they had but i later found out that the young lady didn't really give me the hottest they had. I ate what i was given and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was quite a pore-opening experience. I've been several times and I'm sure I'll be back for more.
