The North Nashville Prince’s Hot Chicken on Ewing Drive will not reopen after last year’s damage has still not been repaired, according to the Nashville Scene.
The fiery fowl purveyor and original hot chicken destination had been operating out of the Ewing Drive space since 1989, until late December, when a car crash and fire in the wee hours of the morning forced Prince’s to close their doors ‘indefinitely.’ A vehicle crashed into a soon-to-open convenience store in the Ewing Drive strip mall at around 4:30 a.m. that December morning, which authorities say sparked the fire.
Prince’s owner Andre Prince Jeffries told the Scene today that damage to ceiling rafters and the landlord’s delay in fixing it prompted the decision to look elsewhere on the north side to resume hot chicken operations. Stay tuned to find out where the iconic restaurant goes next on the North side.
In the meantime, fulfill those OG hot chicken cravings at Prince’s South Nashville outpost (Old Hickory and Nolensville Pike) or their new food truck, stationed at Yee Haw Brewing/Ole Smoky’s Downtown Taproom downtown.
