HOW HOT IS ROCKY’S HOT?

At Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack, we pay homage to “Nashville style” hot chicken and southern soul food.  We prepare our unique fried chicken to order, starting as “Plain.”  From there, we can add the spice from mild to extra hot (lots of folks just love it without the spice). Do you think you can handle Rocky’s Extra Hot spicy chicken?  Trust us, it’s very hot, and we don’t recommend anyone to try it unless you already know that very hot and spicy food is something you enjoy.

Rocky’s has been described by local food critics as “addictive,” “mercilessly hot, “psychedelic” and “face-melting.” Don’t let this scare you – with or without the spice it’s just damn good fried chicken.  

We take pride in being one of the Carolina’s locally owned, independent restaurants.  We source quality and local ingredients for the classic American recipes that we make from scratch daily.  Our birds are naturally raised for superior quality and flavor.  

We recommend trying a spice level down from what you would typically order.  But many people don’t listen to us and find themselves wishing they would have listened.  Others who try our hottest spice level, Extra Hot, and say they could have taken their spicy chicken even hotter.  To those people, we tip our hats to you.  Rocky’s Extra Hot spicy chicken is a huge leap from our Plain. So if spicy chicken isn’t your thing, stay at the Plain or Honey levels.  You’ll thank us later.

“Ok I’ll admit it. I’m a wuss. I just can’t do the hot chicken thing, but fortunately for me Rocky’s has a sweet honey, non-hot chicken. Yippee! My lord, their chicken breast is so huge so I can’t quite finish it, especially since I absolutely must finish my green beans and corn pudding sides. They are absolutely delicious.”  Yelp Review
