You had us at hot chicken
Haven’t been to Hattie B’s Hot Chicken in Birmingham’s Lakeview neighborhood? With incredible fried chicken, show-stealing sides and beer for days, it’s THE place to grab a bite. Get your hot chicken grilled or fried in a range of heat levels. Keep it tame with Southern (no heat) or go crazy with Shut the Cluck Up (burn notice). Then, cool off with a scoop of ice cream or a float for dessert. Find Hattie B’s on 7th Ave South in Lakeview or order here for pickup or delivery.
