You get “hot dang!” flavor at Nashbird Chicken, a counter service restaurant and bar offering fun and affordable tasty hot chicken, say founders Marc and Jenny Dunham. Start with mac n’ cheese poppers, a melty mélange of cheesy, crunchy goodness. Follow with a basket or bucket of fried chicken with buttermilk ranch and a choice of flavors and heat. Sides include cucumber onion salad, coleslaw, fries, onion rings and mac n’ cheese. Sweet tooth tempters include banana pudding and lemon ice box cookies. For cocktails, try the house specialties like a Jack Daniels slushie or an array of draft, canned or bottled beer. First N.W. Ninth St.; 17 E. Fifth St., Oklahoma City; nashbirdchicken.com
