Helen's Hot Chicken Smyrna

You don’t have to travel to Nashville to get excellent “Nashville hot chicken.” Thought by some as the best Hot Chicken out of Nashville, Helen’s Hot Chicken and Fish is available in Murfreesboro and Smyrna. The Smyrna location is relatively new, opening in the fall of 2020 and the Murfreesboro location opened in March of 2017.

Helen’s Hot Chicken was started by Jeremy Mallard in a small food truck on Rosa Parks Boulevard in about 2008. Named after his grandmother, the restaurant has since grown into a franchise, with seven stores in three states, and soon to open a new location in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

They boast explosive flavors on their website, noting that, “It’s Hella Hot and Hella Good!” As the lines tend to grow quickly wherever they open, if you’re a hot chicken lover, this is the place to go. The flavors come in plain, mild, hot, and hella.

Fish and seafood are other favorites. They come as a sandwich or as a combo platter with a choice of pickles, onions, hot sauce, mustard or tartar sauce. Options include whiting, catfish, shrimp, lobster tails, or a combo plate that provides a little of everything.

Known for their popular mango tea, they also have fruit tea, lemonade, pink lemonade, green apple juice, blue raspberry juice, fruit punch, iced tea, and fountain drinks.
