Prince's Hot Chicken Nashville, TN

Updated: Aug 20, 2020



Nashville is famous for its hot chicken. While many restaurants today offer the dish, Prince's Hot Chicken is where it all started. The story goes that back in the 1930s, Thornton Prince's girlfriend was frustrated with him coming home late. To show her frustration, she doused his fried chicken in cayenne pepper the next day. Despite her effort, Thornton loved it, and he opened a restaurant serving the spicy chicken around 1935. Miss André Prince took over the family business that continues to be a legendary restaurant in Nashville.
