Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack Menu
When you order at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, choose your cut of chicken, sides and most importantly, the level of heat for your chicken. “Medium” gives you nice heat spreading through your mouth and throat, and a tingle on your lips, while “hot” burns all the way down like drinking bourbon mash. Only order the chicken extra-hot if you're on a dare, because medium will be hot enough for most spice-hardy people. Whatever heat level you order, don't ever touch your eyes while eating hot chicken. Page 3.
