Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
5209 Charlotte Ave., Sylvan Park
Hot chicken is a must in Nashville, and even though they have three locations (Melrose, Midtown, and West Nashville), Hattie B's always has a line out the door and around the corner. If you're patient, it's totally worth the wait for Nashville’s famous hot chicken, which comes in several heat levels: mild, medium, hot, damn-hot, and shut-the-cluck-up. Pro tip: place a pickup order online to skip the line.
