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

We wanted to try some Hot Chicken while we were in Nashville, and this one was most convenient to where we were staying. I'll say a few things about it: 1. It's not in some fancy neighborhood, no. It's in a little strip mall off...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.
