Hot Chicken Alert: Hattie B’s Is Opening a Second Atlanta Location

The Nashville hot chicken chain opens at the corner of 10th Street and Howell Mill Road next year

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

Prepare for more Nashville hot chicken heat — Hattie B’s is opening a second Atlanta location at 10th Street and Howell Mill Road in Home Park. The new Hattie B’s, located around the corner from Steven Satterfield’s Miller Union, should open next spring.

The 4,800-square-foot building, with seating for up to 200 people, will become Hattie B’s largest location yet. Current design plans include a recessed patio for outdoor dining and games like corn hole.

“It’s a good spot in a bustling part of town. When we were looking for our first Atlanta location [Little Five Points], we were looking in this area back then,” co-owner Nick Bishop Jr. tells Eater Atlanta. “This space checked all the boxes. It’s a part of town we’ve always had our eye on.”

Bishop Jr., who founded Hattie B’s in Nashville with his father Nick Bishop Sr. in 2012, says they “fell in love” with the building’s front facade and like that it’s surrounded by mature trees, offering people a “getaway in the middle of the high rises” popping up along Howell Mill Road.

Last year, Bishop Jr. told Eater he and his father naturally “gravitate” toward unique and historic buildings to renovate for their restaurants. The pair opened the first Hattie B’s in Atlanta last July on Moreland Avenue in a 1950s Phillips 66 gas station with its conspicuous bat wing. The building was previously occupied by Little Five Points Coin Laundry.

As with the Little Five Point location, parking at the 10th Street restaurant will be at a premium — limited to only ten spots. However, a new parking garage is being built across the street from Hattie B’s at the Ospreys complex with approximately 130 public parking spaces.

The new mixed-use development is part of building boom along one of the area’s most traffic-choked corridors. The Ospreys adds an additional 13,000-square-feet of restaurants and retail to Howell Mill and joins other large developments currently under construction in the area, like the block-wide, 200,000-square-foot Interlock across from Westside Provisions District.

Hattie B’s fried chicken comes in six levels of heat: Southern (no heat), mild, medium, hot, damn hot to the daredevil’s dream, and Shut the Cluck Up. The menu offers Southern sides like the oft-ordered pimento mac and cheese and desserts such as banana pudding.

Nashville’s hip-hop-inspired Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria opened in May on Howell Mill, one block from the future Hattie B’s. The popular North Nashville pizzeria, owned by college friends Clinton Gray, Derrick Moore, and Emanuel Reed, opens a second location on Metropolitan Parkway in Adair Park this fall.
