Hot Damn!

Nash & Proper

Nashville-style hot chicken is the main draw at NASH & PROPER, which started out as a food truck and now has two brick-and-mortar locations. You choose the heat level, which ranges from “naked” (no spice) all the way up to “cluckin’ hot” (no explanation needed). Here, co-owner Jake Bombard preps the crinkle fries while his partner, Cecil Rhodes, shows off The Sammich, a crispy fried boneless chicken thigh with spicy mayo and pickles on a butter bun.
