But now to ask that timeless question: where is the best? Whose game is (literally) the hottest in town? Here now, six of what most would consider to be the top hot chicken outposts in the Nashville area will go head-to-head to see who reigns supreme. Did your favorite not get included? Let us know in the comments. And yes, while there are a number of restaurants around town that have their own version of the dish, this is for those that make their name with hot chicken day-in and day-out. Voting ends at 1 p.m. tomorrow, so get to it!
