Where to find it: West Fifth Street
From the owner and executive owner of happy-hour haven Salty Sow, Tumble 22 has been an instant success thanks to its juicy, Nashville-style hot chicken. Locally sourced chicken is tumbled in seasoned flour, a “secret blend of spices,” fried to a crisp, and dipped into your choice of fiery sauces: Wimpy, Hot, Dang Hot, and Fire in the Hole (the last one needs no explanation). In addition to classic hot chicken, Tumble 22’s menu has Nashville-inspired classics like the Southern Chicken Sandwich, a boneless chicken thigh tossed in hot sauce and topped with kale slaw, bread-and-butter pickles, and Duke’s Mayonnaise.
