The food was great and I was impressed with the quality. It is very busy all the time, but worth the wait.

3 adults; 2 teens and receipt was under $55! Went on WingsDay (Wednesday) and the wings were crispy and tasty. Collards were good too but we didn't like the mac/cheese. Mother had pot pie and she said it was very good.

Rocky's is always consistent. Honey mild chicken tenders is my go to, wife gets the pot pie. Brought in a group of 14 and all raved! The sides are all awesome and if you leave hungry there is no hope for you.

Great food. Great visit. The hot chicken was great, and I found that it had good flavor throughout, as opposed to some of the other reviews. The sides were tasty. Full bar with decent selection. Wife and kids enjoyed their meals as well. The real...More

From the Mild to the Flaming Hot, Rockys gives you a choice. The crowd that is always there is an indication of the great food inside. Give the sides a try such as the corn pudding or the desserts in a jar.

Description
At Rocky's Hot Chicken Shack, we pay homage to "Tennessee style" hot chicken and southern soul food. We prepare our unique fried chicken to order and it all starts as "Plain". From there we can add the spice from mild to XX hot (lots of folk just love it without any spice).
