We enjoyed our meal here. Two thighs, one plain and one honey plain. Honey plain was the winner. I like a little heat so I got a mild chicken breast. I thought it was spicy! The hard crust of the chicken was different. It was...More

Great food and eclectic atmosphere. There is adequate parking but it was super busy and very crowded. I’d suggest to go at a down time so you can enjoy the meal and setting.

My first time with Nashille Hot chicken and I will definitely be back for more. Loved the corn casserole too. Medium was hot enough for me. Can't imagine what hot would taste like.

Description
Serving deliriously good fried chicken and southern soul food, Rocky's prepares "hot" chicken with the spice level any way you like it from plain to extra hot. Using natural birds and quality ingredients in our made-from-scratch recipes, we offer delicious American classics like mac and cheese, corn pudding, and collard greens among many more. Mouthwatering desserts include banana pudding and coca cola cake. We make everything fresh, in small batches, for a difference you can taste!
