Texas’ first Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

A new resident restaurant will be opening with celebration for its first branch in Texas and into Deep Ellum according to a Dallas Morning News article from February 14 which reports, 

 

The family-owned restaurant from Nashville, Tennessee, first announced its entry into Texas in August 2020, and hot chicken fans have been sweating its arrival ever since. It made our list of most exciting new restaurants opening in Dallas, though it was originally expected to open in 2021.

 

Hattie B’s has modestly expanded to several restaurants in Nashville and others in Las Vegas, Atlanta and Memphis. The Dallas restaurant will be Hattie B’s ninth.

 

Bishop says they liked Deep Ellum because it felt authentic and historic.

 

“Deep Ellum was really one of those neighborhoods, when we first spent time there, we said, man, there’s a lot of juice down here,” he says. “As cities continue to get bigger, you’ve got to preserve that stuff: the old buildings, the great history that comes with them.”

 

The Tennessee chicken joint will be bringing their signature hot chicken and Texas will be getting two exclusive menu options according to a CultureMap Dallas article from February 16. In it they say, 

 

“They’re known nationally for their hot chicken — bone-in, tenders, and sandwich — served with varying levels of heat. A Hot Chicken Sandwich served with one side is $11.50, while a Tenders Plate with 3 tenders, 2 sides, bread, and pickles is $12.

 

The menu also features Southern sides including pimento mac & cheese and collard greens, plus craft beer, and banana pudding and peach cobbler for dessert.

 

Fried Dill Pickles with Hattie B’s hot spices. “The magic is in the breading because it stays on the pickles and the pickles stay crunchy even when they cool off. Our Nashville Comeback Sauce is the perfect accompaniment,” says executive chef Brian Morris in a statement.

 

Booze. The restaurant will offer several batch cocktails from the taps, along with frozen-drink cocktails served with rum, vodka and whiskey. “We’re expanding our draft program at Hattie B’s to include a dynamic selection of Southern cocktails and two rotating white wines … One of these will always be a sparkling wine — bubbles and hot chicken go great together,” Morris says.”

 

The entire restaurant will also boast its 5,8000 square feet space featuring a 1,000 square foot outdoor patio.
