By hot I mean you can get your chicken as hot and spicy as you dare. A great, casual atmosphere with light music on some evenings. The only complain I have is that they close a little early. Go, you won’t be sorry

My grilled hot chicken tenders we're great. Cooked and seasoned perfect. Hot is hot. Medium pretty hot. The sides we're very good. Great lunch.

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).
