“Wonderful HOT Chicken!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

It's a tiny place and may be scary to some. Don't let it stop you! This is the real thing and the folks are very friendly. I like hot food and I was not disappointed. The chicken was moist and quite tasty. The sides were also very good. I'll go back when I'm in Nashville.

“Spicy is the operative word”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

There'e more than one Bolton's in Nashville. I visited the one on Franklin Pike. Just like the other locations, it is a hole in the wall with little seating. Food is cooked to order, so you may have to wait. We ordered chicken with a range from mild to hot. The mild was hot...the hot earns its reputation. It is hot as you know what. If that's what your looking for, look no further. However, its nothing special, just hot spicy checken. The side vegetables are average at best.

“Hole in the wall with some hot SPICE”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

If you want some hot chicken then you surely can come to this joint. its Hot as all hell. i had the hot chicken and had to get a glass of milk because it was so hot. good stuff. the mac and cheese was good too. its not fancy so dont bring your stuck up girlfriend there. its a down and dirty place ( figuratively speaking) ( scored a 94 on their Restaurant health inspection) to grab some hot chicken and take it home.

“Nashville hot chicken!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We decided to stop by this hole in the wall. The neighborhood isn't as bad as people say. The food was very good. I wish we wouldn't have gotten the hot. The hot was too hot but my mother had the mild and said it was great. The chicken was very good but the sides were only okay. It's worth the stop to try. Next time, we will try Prince's Fried Chicken. If you are on your way to Memphis wait to get fried chicken and go to Gus'

“Hole in the Wall to remember.”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place puts the ‘hole’ in ‘hole in the wall’ but it is one of those tacky looking places that make for an experience you will mention to people later. Chicken is hot or smoking hot, however you want it. Knock on the door if no one is at the window, no plastic for orders under $10, and a ‘take it or leave it’ atmosphere. It almost feels like you need to know a password to get in the place. Get there early if you want to grab one of the few tables and drive the compact if you want to get in and out of the small parking lot.
