400 Degrees

615-244-4467  •  $
ADDRESS: 319 Peabody St, Peabody Corner, Nashville, TN 37210

CUISINE: Hot Chicken, Wings, Fried Chicken

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Cash Only

DETAILS
Opened by Prince's Hot Chicken Shack disciple Aqui Simpson in 2006 and relocated to downtown's Peabody Corner in January 2011, 400 Degrees heads for the deep fryer rather than the skillet á la Prince's to prepare its peppery hot chicken, wings and pork chops. The results ultimately are the same. This stuff is very hot. And very good, with 400 Degrees finishing just behind the legendary Prince's in recent area competitions. The restaurant's name derives from the level of heat: 100 degrees for mild, 200 for medium and 400 for potentially pain-inducing. (For the uninitiated, order one level lower than your instincts might tell you. And keep those fingers away from your eyes!) Sides can vary but often include sweet baked beans, home-style green beans, and mac and cheese, with citrus-spiked sweet tea the beverage of choice. Cash only. No alcohol available. Serving lunch Tue–Fri, early dinner Tue–Sat. Closed Sun–Mon. "The 100 Degree level was the perfect balance of crispy, crunchy skin, spiciness and juicy chicken."
