Situated in the former Beacon Starbucks location, the long-awaited Nashville hot chicken-style restaurant has been teasing followers for weeks leading up to the big announcement + will open its doors in just 6-days at 4 p.m.

The soon-to-be-hot spot (literally) is featuring menu items like a chili-infused, hot honey chicken sandwich, fire-roasted apple cobbler, jalapeno bacon corn, and of course, Nashville hot chicken.
