There are also reportedly more to come. So, if you’re expecting a layover in Nashville, Tennessee, you can easily look forward to the delay. Let’s unpack the Ultimate Guide to Dining at Nashville International Airport.
400 Degrees Nashville Hot Chicken
400 Degrees Hot Chicken is now serving up Nashville Hot Chicken at Nashville International Airport. They deliver fried chicken with varying degrees of heat, purportedly from 0 to 400 degrees. There are also plenty of home style sides you’ve come to expect from Nashville Hot Chicken.
