Prince's Hot Chicken Shack is a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, known for its hot chicken. The business was started in 1945 by James Thornton Prince, and in 1980 ownership was passed to his great-niece André Prince Jeffries.[1][2]

Origins

While impossible to verify, the development of hot chicken is reportedly accidental. Prince was purportedly a womanizer, and after a particularly late night his girlfriend at the time cooked him a fried chicken breakfast with hot pepper as revenge. Prince, however, liked the taste so much that he and his brothers created their own recipe and opened the Bar-B-Que Chicken Shack.[3][4][5] The café was originally located at 28th Ave and Jefferson St,[2] but moved to its Ewing Dr location in 1988.[6]

Honors and awards

The Travel Channel show Food Paradise has named them Nashville's best place to get hot chicken (2013-02-06 episode).[7] They were also on the network's Bizarre Foods America (2014-04-07 episode) and Man v. Food Nation (2011-06-08 episode).[8] Gourmet magazine named it as one of Nashville's four "don't-miss dining experiences".[9] In 2013, they were named an American Classic by the James Beard Foundation Awards.[3]
