We had a nice meal here. Our grandson (who is a teenager and was totally taken in by the "I can eat anything" stupidity) didn't. It was funny watching his face change color though. Taught him a lesson too. The chicken we had was actually good. Very fresh, cooked in lard so it was magically crispy, overall good experience. Loved... More

Uber dropped just after noon on a Wednesday; had a 45-55 min. wait. I had a large dark meat plate "mild or medium"--very oily, delicious flavor and quite hot; my boss-in-law had the large white meat plate "hot". We observed a man struggle through his "damn hot" chicken while we waited and opted not to torture ourselves. Honestly, we were... More

Chicken was moist and yummy! Great location, easy to find, free parking He had the original Hot Chicken, not hot at all I could have gone one level higher with heat.

Thank goodness we arrived just prior to the dinner rush cause soon after the line was now going from the bluiding to the street. I could understand why once we received our food.Warning! They have four... More

The chicken is made for you and is not sitting around under a heater. The sides were good, but not a fan of mac & cheese w/ pimento, but loved the slaw. The mild hot sauce on the chicken has a kick, but not a strong one and it was GREAT! Wish Hattie D was where I live and liked... More

I'm new to Hot Chicken but I've had dozens of other types of fried chicken and Hattie's really stacks up. Tender moist meat with crisp spicy and flavorful covering. It's rated from no heat to "shut the cluck up" hot and there is something for everyone. The hot stuff isn't just a mouth burning contest it has a real depth... More

We stumbled over Hattie B's by accident. It's not a fancy establishment, but clean with excellent fried chicken. . This has been one of our favorite places to enjoy chicken for several years now, with consistently good food and service. One almost hopes not to many know of their existance so as not to increase the wait when the urge... More

If you love hot chicken, this is the place to be. Great service and friendly people, but make sure you find a table first.

Worth the wait lining up outside! Sooo good and tasty. I had the southern fried because I do not like hot and spicy food. Baked beans and coleslaw were great too!

Thank goodness I live a couple states away from Hattie B's because I fell in LOVE with her food. We waited in line for an hour in 90 degree heat - something we have never done - based only on recommendations that Hattie's was "worth it." We were prepared to be underwhelmed, but it was all fantastic! Fried chicken is... More
