    Even the hot is quite spicy; expect a serious dose of heat.

    Get the cake. It's delicious and a great coolant. Don't eat the pickles before the chicken.

    From the look of the security here I have to assume they are paid in chicken.

    Be sure to check out one of the 'hottest' spots in Nashville. Their chicken is spicy, so don't say I didn't warn you...

    If you like a runny nose, tingling tongue and like spicy food hot is a good place to start.

    For those of us who do not want Hot Chicken....Their "naked chicken" is awesome.

    There is one serious gap between medium and hot. Beware.

    If you are a first timer do yourself a favor and do not order the Hot. It is good but very spicy

    Choose from among mild, medium, hot, and extra hot — my nose tingles and my scalp prickles, but the taste is so narcotic that I clean my plate every time. Read more

    When you take some home, make some white steamed rice - they are just perfect together!

    I love spicy food. Love it! After reading all the reviews that said don't get the hot, get the medium, I decided to ignore them. I got the hot. It is one of the spiciest foods I have ever eaten.

    Breast Quarter Medium Heat with fries. The fries will soak up the excess hot sauce. Go early and prepare to wait 20-30 minutes once you have ordered. They don't fry your chicken until you order it.

    Not the best fried chicken I have had but if you love spicy it will top anyone's list. Try the wings which are extra hot down to the bone. Be prepared to wait some because the food is cooked to order

    Best fried chicken ever! The mild is pretty hot. Be prepared to wait at least 30 mins for your food after you order. And get the cake. It's so good and moist

    Mild has more than enough kick for me and I love spicy food! More than worth the effort and the drive to this Nashville gem.

    The hot chicken is soooo good. Sucks there's only one location. The wait us always ridiculous, but it's responded with well worth it spicy chicken.

    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.

    They were "out" of extra hot. At 1:30am with the place packed to the gills. Granted I was the only white guy there so maybe they just wouldn't waste the good stuff. Read more

    We love spicy but I would start with mild here. Ok to bring in drinks so bring milk. Also pieces are very big. We ended up with too much food. The $5 wings are a great deal. Would pass on coleslaw.

    Medium heat is hot. Hot and XHot not recommended for mortals. BYO dairy-based cooling agent as the drink selection is poor and unreliable. A memorable experience...for at least 2 days afterwards.
