With covid we ordered take out since the dining room was closed but it was a perfect in car dining experience. This is authentic Hot Chicken and it was great from the first bite down to the bread on the bottom (awesome). The onion rings...were spectacular and when I finally had a bite of my kids waffles with the chicken it was delicious. Make the stop before you head north out of Nashville and prepared to perspire a little.More

We order from Slow Burn East Nashville atleast once a week. The hot chicken is by far the best tasting. The flavors are amazing and it is not just extreme heat like other hit chicken joints.

Slow Burn has a good variety of side dishes along with the hot chicken which is very good. Be prepared for a little wait since it is not cooked until ordered.

First trip to Slow Burn, but will not be my last. The heat levels are one level above the mainstream NHC (Nashville Hot Chicken) joints, which thanks to reviews I had read I ordered accordingly. The sides here are generous compared to just about everyone...else, and the MOST selections of anywhere I have been. The prices are reasonable, and the chicken was delicious. If you are out on this side of town, give them a try. The staff was very nice and patient and helped those in our party in ordering off their extensive menu. I'm looking forward to going back very soon. So glad I found Slow Burn!!More

We ordered a family pack plus chicken tenders at medium heat level for pick up. We selected both the naked version and the coated version. The coated version definitely became soggy after a 20 minutes car ride. Hattie B’s held up better for take out....The chicken tenders were over cooked. The meat was dry. The coated version definitely was far superior to the naked version. The oily seasoning was absorbed by the coating, thus far more flavorful. Skip the naked version if you like spices. It is a personal preference when it comes to who has the best hot chicken in Nashville. We will try another establishment next time.More

This is the hidden hot chicken gem of Nashville! Love the chicken, the sides, and the family who own the place. Each of their heat levels have its own unique flavor and they manage to creat a tasty offering that will melt your face and...have you coming back asking for more! Their hot is very hot even compared to other hot chicken places. I also highly recommend their Gouda Mac!More

This is by far the best hot chicken we’ve had since moving to Nashville. There are many varieties of hot and also of other flavors for your friends/family that don’t like hot chicken. Their sides are delicious and their meal deals are actually a good...deal as well.More

I can't say enough good about this family run restaurant. We visited for breakfast and the chicken and waffles were the best I've ever had. We will ensure that we visit on each of our future trips to Nashville.

I never write reviews. That said, this place deserves the attention. I’ve had Hattie’s Bs because all visitors find it a must visit, but this place beats them hands down. Moist HOT 🔥 (and they mean it!) chicken, lots of sides to choose from. We...wanted to go back for breakfast because the menu looked amazing but never made it on this trip to Nashville. Great staff, cool joint and worth the drive to Madison.More
