The best fried chicken ever!

Even though the line was out the door, it moved rather quickly, and the food was certainly worth the wait. The restrooms are in an awkward spot right by the door where customers are lined up. The kitchen has a good exhaust system....so clothes didn't end up smelling like the grill; staff friendly... read more

Fun and funky local lunch spot that will not disappoint. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an order of Hot and an order of medium "Hot" chicken. Chicken and sides were great and they serve beer. Not much seating and there was a line out the door the entire time we were there. Worth the wait!

Well worth the wait! The chicken is amazing. Quite possibly the best fried chicken I've ever eaten. This is not the place to get a quick bite... Perfection takes time.

Fantastic Hot Chicken-Nashville's signature dish! We've visited the Vandy location a few times, and never had a bad experience or meal! I love hot food, but the hottest of their chicken is too hot for me! It can get crowded, with long lines, but worth the wait! Going early or at off times during the day is recommended. This is...

we tried the medium and the hot chicken and they were both great! We probably could have gone up a notch on the heat, but we were cautious. Great flavors! The greens and Mac and cheese sides were delicious! And the peach cobbler was outstanding!! The Midtown area has some neat bars and restaurants.

After going to the location on 19th Ave. and after paying for parking we found that it was closed. No reason, just a sign on the door. We had read so many reviews on Hattie's that we went to their other location the next night. We were glad that we did. We weren't very hungry but we were determined to... More

This is some of the best Spicy Chicken I have ever had, juicy and tender too! The wait staff was fun! We were there on a cold night & had to sit outside but I did not let that take away from the good meal I had. We will definitely go back to Hattie's if we are in Nashville again.... More

I read TripAdvisor reviews of Hattie B's and decided to give it a try while visiting Nashville. It did not disappoint. The location was easy to find as it is not too far from the DT Broadway core, 5 mins in a car and approx 15 mins if you chose to walk. The service was quick and efficient even though... More

This was my favorite place in Nashville. We got there a few minutes before opening on a Thursday and there was already about 20 people waiting. We spilt a half chicken. We got medium which has just the right amount heat for us--definitely a kick but not overwhelming, nose running heat. Both the dark and white meat were moist and... More
