In the suburbs, about 15 miles outside of downtown Nashville, is Chicken Real. Hot chicken is no longer just a city thing.

This is a great choice if you’d like to seem tougher than the actual tolerance of your stomach lining. The chicken here comes in “mild, ” “hot” and “suicide.” but even the “suicide” isn’t as hot as the mid-level heat at the downtown hot chicken shacks.

Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
