Prince’s Hot Chicken is known as the originator of this signature local dish and has quite the history behind it. Thorton Prince, the father of Nashville’s hot chicken, was known even in the height of the Great Depression to enjoy the nightlife and gained a reputation as being the ladies’ man. His steady girl wasn’t too happy with his behavior and to get back at him, served him fried chicken filled with peppers and spices. Much to her dismay, Prince loved the dish and the legend was born. He opened Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack and almost 100 years later, his great niece Andre Prince Jeffries is still serving up the same recipe.
