Spicy, spicy hot!

I went to the Franklin Pike location. They were training a new cashier, so there was some confusion as to whether or not they had whiting. I wanted a Whiting sandwich. I ordered medium, which is about 3 out of 5 on the hot scale. None, mild, medium, hot and super hot. Medium was HOT! But very... read more

My son described the hot chicken as life-changing. It was too hot for me, but he sure did enjoy it! Friendly folks

Don't let the location and building fool you- the food here is amazing. We got the recommendation from an Uber driver that we'd had the night before. We went here for lunch and there was one group in front of us. It wasn't busy, which is good, because there are three tables inside and 2 more outside. The ordering system... More

Went here on a recommendation from a Nashville Uber driver and former chef. It did not disappoint. No denying Bolton's has amazing chicken. They fry it perfectly and do justice to the signature dish of the city. The place is very dive-y but please don't let that deter you. All spice levels are one or two levels up to what... More

Bolton's has been on my list of restaurants to try in Nashville for a year now. I went there at 8:40pm (they close at 9) and the doors were locked. There were three employees talking and one came to the door when they could see we were upset. They said sorry but they were closing early and the fryers were... More

Hot chicken is a signature dish in Nashville. This place came highly rated, and I was a bit surprised that it didn't really live up to expectations. I liked the low-key atmosphere, and the people working there were super-friendly. The spice mix on the chicken was a bit uneven; I ordered hot, but one bite had nothing and the next... More

Stopped by Bolton' s for a late lunch. Three of us had the hot chicken, one had chicken fingers and I had a pork chop. The pork chop was quite spicy but also quite dry and cost over $5 for one chop. The chicken tenders were very tasty and moist. Besides being very hot, the chicken was average. The sides... More

Oh, and start with their mild, unless you're sure about your spice levels. A bottle of coke won't hurt to wash it all down. I stopped here today with a few friends on a road trip, and what better way to start your trip than spicy fried fish?
