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 folk just love it without the spice).

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 Asheville’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.

“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
