Hot Chicken Tuesdays Start Today at Chick's Fry House

A Nashville favorite comes to Charleston.

Why'd the chicken cross the road?

Hot chicken has been a Nashville tradition for decades, but hasn't really caught on in Charleston. The Rarebit keeps it on the menu, and it's occasionally seen as a special, but no restaurant is really known for the fried chicken covered in spicy cayenne paste. Today, Chick's Fry House might change that.

From 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., every Tuesday, the North Central eatery will serve Nashville hot chicken, in hot or extra hot, with a slice of Martin's potato bread and pickles. Chef Robert Stehling has served this dish to Andre Prince Jeffries, owner of Prince's Hot Chicken Shack, where the dish is said to have originated (or at least popularized).

Will it stack up to the original Prince's in Nashville? Give it a try and let us know.
