The casual restaurant is known for its hot fried chicken dish served at various spice levels.

Ready for more hot chicken, Atlanta? A second Atlanta Hattie B’s is opening in West Midtown 

The hot chicken craze shows no signs of slowing down in metro Atlanta.

Hattie B's Hot Chicken, the family owned-and-operated Nashville-based eatery, is slated to open its second Atlanta location in spring 2020 at 711 10th St. NW in West Midtown.

"It's a good spot in a bustling part of town," Nick Bishop Jr., co-founder of Hattie B's Hot Chicken, said in a prepared statement. "When we were looking for our first Atlanta location, we were looking in this area back then. This space checked all the boxes. It's a part of town we've always had our eye on.”

The 4,800 square-foot West Midtown location will be the largest Hattie B’s restaurant to date, providing indoor and outdoor seating for about 200 customers. The decor and layout will be similar to the first Atlanta Hattie B’s location, which opened in July 2018 at 299 Moreland Ave. in Little Five Points. There will be 10 parking spots on-site, with a new parking structure being built across the street adding an additional 130 public parking spaces. 

"We love Atlanta," co-founder Nick Bishop Sr. said in a prepared statement. "It's a special place for our family with many good memories, both professionally and personally, and we hope to find other great neighborhoods we can become a part of in the coming years.” 

Nick Sr. began his restaurant career in Atlanta with Morrison's Cafeteria.

Opening hours will be the same as the Little Five Points restaurant: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday; and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.

Hattie B’s opened its first location in Nashville in 2012, with three locations total in its home city. It has since expanded to Birmingham, Alabama; Memphis, Tennessee; and Las Vegas in addition to Atlanta

The restaurant’s menu focuses on hot chicken with varying levels of heat from Southern (no heat), mild, medium, hot and damn hot to Shut the Cluck Up. The menu also features local beers, sides including pimento mac and cheese and collard greens and peach cobbler and banana pudding for dessert. 

The second location of Hattie B’s will join other hot chicken chains in Atlanta including Memphis-based Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, which has locations in downtown Atlanta, Sandy Springs and Chamblee and Joella’s Hot Chicken, which is slated to open four metro Atlanta locations in the next year. In addition, chef Todd Richards serves up hot chicken regularly at his Richards Southern Fried in Krog Street Market
