About The Budlong Hot Chicken

Story

Local restaurateur Jared Leonard was on a trip to Nashville to attend a BBQ conference, (his other ventures are BBQ Supply & the Rock River BBQ Ranch) , when he first tried this classic spicy Nashville preparation of fried chicken. He was hooked, and the journey began. Hosting chicken labs in his catering kitchen, he spent over a year fine tuning the recipe for 1) great fried chicken and 2) the best way to make it "Nashville Hot". Alongside, the team developed classic southern biscuits, greens, and other traditional southern fare - and our first store opened in 2016.

Welcome to The Budlong, a Nashville Hot Chicken Joint. Hot Chicken is enjoyably spicy, deliciously crispy, fried chicken; first served as a plate of revenge to Thornton Prince in Nashville, TN. First time? Try the classic. Like it HOT? Try the Xtra Hot. Either way, we know you’ll love it! We use locally sourced, anti-biotic & hormone free chickens.

Each plate is served atop Texas toast, with house-made pickles.

Our sides are made from scratch daily - Budlong Biscuits, Collard Greens, Mac n Cheese, & Red Potato salad. We also serve house-made banana pudding & house-made ice cream bars (summer)! Join us for a meal, a smile, and some funky jams (dancing optional).

Thank you for choosing The Budlong for your

Hot Chicken Experience
