Oohwee!

I can't handle any hot foods. I usually get lemon pepper wings to avoid the hotness of mild flavoring. I tried Bolton's because, well, when in Nashville....I had the mild chicken fingers and zoo-wee-mama! They're extremely spicy but I was able to handle them. My lower lip and chin burned for about... read 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?

First tried Bolton's Franklin Road location a few months ago, and have pretty much eaten it weekly ever since. Have driven from Murfreesboro to Nashville just to eat there several times. Place is a little bit of a dive, drink selection is inconsistent, and staff is so-so friendly, but the chicken, catfish, and sides are always great. You get some... More

Best Nashville Hot Chicken I've tasted ever! The staff was friendly. My order came out in less than five minutes. The prices were reasonable. They have a variety of delicious sides that you get your money's worth for. I highly recommend this place!

Self proclaimed great chicken and fish. They have mistaken rubbing hot spices and sauces on fried chicken for flavor. I ordered a chicken sandwich. What I got was a thigh and leg (bone in) on two pieces of bread (and a bit of attitude when I challenged that interpretation). Yes the chicken was hot but totally without flavor. I have... More

This was the first place I was taken right after I got off the place :) and it was the best fried chicken I have tasted. Trust me when I tell you that mild is spicy (I love spicy food). The chicken piece either the breast or the leg is humongous and is served in between two piece of bread.
