Prince's Hot Chicken Shack. Nashville, United States

It's not really a question of what you're going to order at Prince's Hot Chicken Shack (the chicken, obviously)—it's how you will order it. Mild, medium, hot, or extra hot.

"I usually go with medium," said one of the aproned guys behind the counter who's been sizzling up the tongue-scorching fried chicken for over 20 years. (He goes by "Big O.") Though he has a day job, Big O still puts in his hours here, and even after all this time, hasn't graduated beyond medium.

His coworker, also an aproned man who's going on two decades working here, freely admitted that he's still rocking the mild. "I don't mess with that other stuff."
