A bit disappointed after eating Hattie’s Bs!! I thought the chicken was over done and the spice level is just hot as oppose to flavor. Skip it...

As far as chicken goes, this is good stuff. Even the mild is pretty stinkin hot. Be careful ordering online, though. Our order was not on time and many items were missing or not correct.

Tried to eat here on May 16, 2019 and it was closed. Looks like they might be doing renovations - hard to say. Pretty disappointing that Google maps sent us there anyway.

Princes is the first and the original hot chicken spot in Nashville. The wait is pretty ridiculous but it’s worth it. I can’t wait to see the improvements made to the Ewing location.

All I can say is we drove from Chicago to Nashville for two reasons: 1) to see our wonderful Nashville family. 2) to eat some Prince’s hot chicken. Done.

This place was recommended by the hotel and I see why. The chicken lives up to its name, HOT. No wonder this place was crowded. And excellent customer service makes you want to do back
