Music City Hot Chicken was named Colorado's top fried chicken joint! Here's why it was chosen:
"Customers flock to this lively restaurant and bar to enjoy the live music and excellent fried chicken dishes, where you can choose your level of spice. The chicken sandwich, served in a bun with coleslaw and house sauce with one side and one sauce, comes highly recommended. Opt for classic Southern style, hot for a 'bit of burn', Nashville Hot for 'bigger burn', or White Hot, which they brand 'incendiary'. Customers also rate the potato salad with egg and bacon, and the sweet potato fries.
You can find this restaurant in Fort Collins and Denver.
