I could not resist adding this last minute meetup for Saturday afternoon. FINALLY, Hot Chicken & Waffles are on the menu as of 1/30 at Pepperfire on the northside of town. I crave good chicken & waffles but can't really find them in Nashville until now. But even better, it's with Hot Chicken. Pepperfire has had this in the works for a while now so I would say the delay has been to perfect their concept. They also have a version called Applefire: Waffles, Hot Chicken tenders and sweet apples. Life doesn't get much better than this...
Let's make a stop for some seriously hot chicken at Pepperfire on Gallatin Road. Hopefully, we will have some nice weather (sunny and high of 52) and can congregate at the covered picnic tables out front. You can call in your order ahead of time (ranging from “mild” to “extra extra hot”) to avoid a long wait for your chicken (made to order). Orders take on average about 15-20 minutes to prepare, so you can call on your way.
Directions: From I-24W, take Ellington Parkway. Take E Trinity Lane exit to the right and a right on Gallatin Pike. Located at the intersection of Dozier Place.

Hot chicken or Nashville hot chicken is a type of fried chicken that is a local specialty of Nashville, Tennessee. In its typical preparation, it is a portion of breast, thigh, or wing that has been marinated in buttermilk, breaded, sauced using a paste that has been heavily spiced with cayenne pepper, and pan-fried. It is served atop slices of white bread with pickle chips. It is both the application of a spicy paste and the presentation that differentiates it from similar dishes, such as Buffalo wings. It is similar in heat to Caribbean Jerk chicken, but is sauced rather than spiced with a dry rub.
