New Nashville Hot Chicken Wed, 07/25/07 2:24 PM (permalink)
The Scoreboard Bar and Grill in the Music Valley Drive area of Nashville (near Gaylord-Opryland) has been preparing a Nashville-style hot chicken for a few months. For all of you hot-chicken fans out there you should give it a try!! The service is normally quite good at this business, especially at the bar.

They currently offer a breast with wing attached (breast quarter) for $4.95. Sides are $1.99 and include: fries,potato salad,coleslaw,baked beans,steamed veggies and house salad.

Heat choices are mild, medium, hot and Inferno (their signature formula).

I am not affiliated with the business in any way other than being a very satisfied consumer of their Nashville-Hot-Chicken!

      I can practically hear pogophiles and Poverty Pete running out the door to go check the place out. That is, if they haven't already been there before!

        UncleVic: thanks for the welcome.....been lurking for a few years but finally have gotten around to posting. I'm working on getting some pics posted.

        buffetbuster: it will be very interesting to see which Roadfood.com folks have already tried the chicken. I know that the two you mentioned live in the area and are fans of the style.

          pepperhead-
          Welcome to Roadfood! I am glad you quit lurking and decided to join in. Very much looking forward to seing the pics. Have you been to Prince's? If so, how does it compare?

            Have not been to Prince's in a few years but did get THE chicken from Mr. Boo here in Donelson. I recommend that anyone who likes this style of chicken, should check-out the product that is being offered at The Scoreboard. The comparison between outlets is too subjective....sorry if this disappoints.

              pepperhead,
              If you ate at Boo's, you have street cred. I haven't been to Scoreboard, but will try to get there this weekend.

                Hi Poverty Pete,

                I have only eaten this chicken on the weekdays but have no reason to believe the weekend crew would put out an inferior product. If you happen to visit during the weekdays, be sure to tell Judi (bartender) that you are a roadfood.com member.

                  Not sure when I'll get out there, but I'll definitely keep it in mind. I may try to get by that mall version of Bolton's for lunch today.

                  I still miss Mr. Boo's...

                    Ate at Scoreboard back in Jan? or so when they were starting to serve hot chicken. Very tasty, they said they were considering offering wings or other parts, doesn't sound like they have? Their 'regular' sauced hot wings were actually pretty tasty as well.

                    I'm not working in Nashville now so it's harder for me to get up that way for a hot chicken fix. Maybe Prince's will open a branch in the 'Boro eh? I think the Boltons at the mall (Hickory Hollow) closed a while back.

                    I sure miss Boo's too.

                      The Bolton's in the mall was still there last Thursday, because I got an excellent whiting sandwich from them for lunch. First time I had been in that mall in a long time. Yikes has it ever gone downhill!!

                        I had a fish sandwich at Ron's on Murfreesboro Rd. on Saturday. It was the traditional Nashville hot fish. I would rate it near, but not quite equal to East Side and Kingfish. In most cities, it would be a star.

                          Poverty: which was the one you took Al and myself to? It was very good. I enjoyed meeting your friend and the fish was a meal within itself.

                            Paul, we went to East Side. Doesn't he make a great sandwich? I have a slight preference for Kingfish, but that was the day of the Music City Marathon, which went right in front of Kingfish. Finding my coworker there was just an added bonus. BTW, that's the same guy who tells me that if and when he opens his own restaurant, he'll name his fish sandwich the Poverty Pete.

                              I could have sworn I saw an article that said they had closed that one. I haven't actually been to the Hickory Hollow mall in years. I'll have to keep that in mind though since I go by there whenever I go back and forth to Nashville.

                              Did you happen to see what times they are open?

                                The management at the Scoreboard provided me with a few pics of their hot-chicken. I hope it is OK for me to post them. BTW, they also have some fine ribs!

                                  I did not notice the hours. It did appear that they had adapted their chicken to mall cuisine (seemed to only have a choice of wings or tenders) so I went with the fish, which was excellent. That mall (at least in the food court) was very depressing though...

                                    Sounds like Nashville's once best mall has gone downhill?

                                      I like the ribs at Scoreboard very much. Is it just the photo or is that chicken covered in sauce? If so, that's not Nashville hot chicken to me, but a variation on Buffalo wings. I'll have to investigate. Sundancer, you're right. You'll want to avoid Hickory Hollow. Some of the anchor store have closed as have many of the outlying restaurants. The sports bar where I used to go in the area now has to have an armed guard. For years they didn't even have a bouncer.

                                          I know what ribs look like. The chicken just looks a little shiny, but that could be the flash. Is it covered in a sauce or is it dry?

                                            I don't care what that chicken has on it, looks mighty tasty to me. Thanks for the pics, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

                                                We don't have hot chicken in LA, as far as I know (and I don't count Popeyes!). I'd love to have a recipe, or at least know the basics for preparing it.

                                                    Hope I didn't disappoint you RibRater. The Church's locations here in Nashville have begun offering spicy chicken. It's a good bit hotter than Popeye's.

                                                        If you're talking about Hickory Hollow, that place has been horrible for about a decade (if not longer).

                                                        I'll have to try the Scoreboard, as I live in Donelson and head over to Opry Mills fairly often to catch a movie.

                                                          I don't know where they snapped the above photos of the chicken but my serving didn't look anything like that - the above photos look like they were put together by a food artist (or maybe Prince's ). I had a HEAVY coating over the breast/wing section with up to 1/2 inch of coating in some places. The fried piece was then dipped in a hot "sauce" that was about on par with the hot from prince's.... but underneath that very thick coating was plain chicken that didn't resemble the depth of flavor you get through-out a piece of prince's chicken in any way.


                                                          I'll post pics when I get back but imo, the chicken I had from scoreboard is not nearly as good as prince's. i won't be returning.

                                                            My chicken did look like the photos above when I was there. Although I would say that Prince's is probably still the better one, Scoreboard still had some fine hot chicken.

                                                            Sorry to hear about that, I wonder if their chicken person quit or something?
