Atlanta has plenty of great fried chicken, but when Nashville hot chicken makes it way east, people still get excited. So much so that despite being open for a few months now, you will still find a line wrapped around the building every time you go to Hattie B’s, but we promise it’s worth the wait. Once you finally get to order, you can choose from a variety of wings, tenders, sandwiches, sides, and desserts, along with your spice level - from mild to “Shut The Cluck Up.” If you’re trying to avoid the crowds, and don’t mind crying into your food before noon, try showing up at 11am when they open, or go on a Friday or Saturday when they’re open until midnight for a second dinner.
