Nashville Fried Chicken

The Hot Chicken Story | Nashville Hot Fried Chicken

Willy is obsessed with heat. Whether it’s spreading fresh serrano peppers in his cheese dip or putting smoky chipotle peppers in his burrito, he’s gotta have it. If he’s not sweating, it’s time to add more heat. Nashville Hot Chicken is a deep-fried chicken.

Willy made his mark on Atlanta over 25 years ago when he brought the huge California-style burritos back east and opened his first Willy’s Mexicana Grill. He now has over 30 locations and counts himself fortunate to have some of the best and most loyal customers ever. Many of the original customers from the first store back in 1995 are still eating there.

 

Nashville Hot Seasoning and Hot Fried Chicken

Nashville Hot Fried Chicken

 

Willy is always traveling to check out the new hotspots and see what the new food crazes are. While in Nashville, he discovered another favorite with the heat he craves, Nashville Hot Chicken and Nashville Fried Chicken. He thought he had died and gone to heaven. The only problem is Nashville is over 3 hours away, too far to fit into his weekly rotation. So, just like the burritos, he decided to bring his own hot chicken to Atlanta.

He loved the taste but decided he could take it to the next level. With his extensive knowledge of chili peppers, he began experimenting with different ones to get that holy grail combination of heat and flavor. After many attempts and some blown-out taste buds, his new recipe is ready to roll out to Atlanta and trust us when we say, it will make you howl!!!
