This place was pretty cool! Not in a great area and not for the diet-conscious for sure. We got a quarter with wing (I think) each and my boyfriend got hot and I got mild. The hot is HOT and mild is still pretty spicy....More

Great food! It was he first place we visited as soon as we left the airport and so glad we did! Only downside is it took an hour to get our food, however......it was worth the wait!

Off the beaten path, Prince's is the original home of Nashville Hot Chicken. Located in a small and grubby strip mall, it is not for the guest looking for a gracious dining experience. Expect to wait for small, uneven and crowded tables. Figure out what...More

Ok chicken...... very similar to Hattie B's, Helen's. limited sides, fries, baked beans, Cole slaw but not much else. Totally not worth the hour wait unless you just are a die hard hot chicken fan and want to try it to compare.

We were very excited to visit Prince's after hearing so much about the legendary killer chicken. Cool little dive store and super gritty and dirty, but I thought that added to the mystique. More like mistake. Ordered up a breast and wing chicken hot, and...More

With DST in effect it stays light until almost 7, I can't imagine you having trouble, as in all things and all places, keep your eyes and ears open and have a good time.
