Here, we offer some of our favorites to try around town.

Swine & Sons

669 North Orange Avenue, Winter Park | Inside The Local Butcher

This husband and wife-run shop, previously located next to The Ravenous Pig, is now nestled in The Local Butcher Shop on North Orange Avenue. Their amazing hot chicken sandwich is made with crispy Bell & Evans all-natural chicken, covered in hot spice and topped with house-made garlic dill pickles, is served on a buttered bun with a side of fries. You can pick the level of spice you want, from Party to Ultra Mega Rager.

Chicken Fire 3

Chicken Fire

2425 East Colonial Drive, Orlando | In the iFresh Market Plaza

Chicken Fire was a popular food truck in Central Florida. While you may miss seeing them at A La Carte, you can now visit their new brick-and-mortar store on East Colonial where they’re serving over 1,000 pounds of chicken each weekend! Choose your level of heat (we recommend mild to begin), and don’t forget to order an extra side of their buttermilk coleslaw. Specials like their jumbo wings aren’t always on the menu, but when they are, order them! And don’t forget the Soul Sauce!

Cask & Larder

9202 Jeff Fuqua Blvd, Orlando | Inside the Orlando International Airport

You know this hot chicken sandwich is good if we’re sending you to the airport! Cask & Larder is the brainchild of The Ravenous Pig owners, James and Julie Petrakis. All of their takes on southern classics are winners, but their hot chicken sandwich, made with house-made hot honey and served with some serious coleslaw and thick-cut pickles, is one of the best.

The Porch

643 N Orange Ave, Winter Park | Adjacent to The Local Butcher

Interestingly, this place is directly adjacent to Swine & Sons and offers a Nashville Hot Chicken & Biscuits option on the weekend only, and it’s worth waiting for! We’re talking spicy Porch fried chicken served in between a fresh buttermilk biscuit, topped with house-made pickles and honey butter. The Porch gets crowded, so get there early or order on Door Dash!

Bad As’s Sandwiches

207 N Primrose Drive, Orlando | Near Festival Park

Okay, so the chicken itself on Bad As’s Sandwiches, The Killer, isn’t actually hot, but the spicy honey glaze is. This crispy, fried dark meat chicken is topped with spic​y honey glaze, house pickles, lettuce​,​ tomatoes, ​and ​house-made blue cheese.
