What was once a Phillips 66 gas station, and later a laundromat, will now become home to Atlanta’s first Hattie B’s hot chicken joint, reigning from the Music City of Nashville. In 2012, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken first opened their doors in Nashville, and now their newest location will be opening in Little Five Points, just a short walk from the center of the entertainment district! I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited about going for a bite to eat before enjoying a concert or show at Star Bar, Variety Playhouse, 7 Stages, or Horizon Theatre! What’s even better is that the new digs will boast a large outdoor seating area where patrons can enjoy locally crafted draft brews and take in the view of the hip, and affectionately grungy, Little Five Points scene.
You can all but guarantee the chicken will come hot, but most importantly delicious! All of Hattie B’s locations have a Yelp aggregate review of four stars or more with three of their locations receiving the coveted 4.5 stars! Their main dish, the breast and wing quarter, comes in six different choices of heat, ranging from “southern” (no heat) to “shut the cluck up” (extra hot)! Each plate comes with two sides which start at the fair price of $9.00. If you don’t like to pick through the bones, you can also try their jumbo tenders or get your chicken between two buns on a sandwich. We personally can’t wait to try the pimento mac and cheese side or sweeten the deal with one of their deserts! Especially the banana pudding.
The Five Points location will begin operation on Thursday, July 12th. Their hours are as follows:
Monday-Thursday: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday-Saturday: 11 a.m.-midnight
Sunday: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
