In large part this Nashville hot chicken news has slid quietly under the radar here locally, but Bolton’s Spicy Chicken & Fish, a longtime practitioner of the legendary fiery fowl, has now brought the heat to neighboring Chattanooga.
The new restaurant, Bolton’s third location and first outside of Nashville, opened at 3202 Brainerd Road in late January with owners Ed and Guwanda Wickley at the helm. Ed Wickley’s sister, Dolly Matthews, and her husband, Bolton Matthews, own and operate the Nashville locations.
The menu is much the same, offering various heat levels for its crispy bird and arguably equally well-known fish sandwiches.
The restaurant received some major national attention last October when it was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s CNN show ‘Parts Unknown.’
