Here Comes the Heat: Nashville Hot Chicken Grilled Cheese

Nashville hot chicken is popping up on menus all over the globe, and you’d better believe we’re bringing our hometown “A” game to the mix! Hot chicken is so much more than a food fad for Nashvillians, with generations of cooks and customers passing along secret spice recipes, giving directions to the best hole-in-the-wall joints, and maintaining fierce loyalties to their hot chicken spot of choice.

Nobody in town is 100% sure how hot chicken became a Nashville hallmark, but most stories point to an unassuming cinder-block shack called Prince’s Hot Chicken. Today, Prince’s has a cult-like following, including appearances by some of country’s biggest stars (who wait in line just like everybody else). The story behind Prince’s is a fun one, full of heat and a backfired plan for revenge – look it up sometime!

Our Nashville Hot Chicken Grilled Cheese takes our beloved local tradition one step further, featuring layers of gooey cheese to smooth out the crazy heat inside. Served with cool coleslaw and tangy pickled peppers, it’s a combo made in hot chicken heaven. It’ll leave you coming back for more, guaranteed!
