I'm quite picky about my nashville hot chicken, so I was quite pleased with the tenderness of the chicken and the juiciness it had. The taste of the meal was even better than expected; the blend of spices and flavors brought out by the habanero and cayenne gave it a unique flavor that I can't find anywhere else.

The homemade sides were another highlight. Their potato salad and baked beans were very flavorful and had a hint of smokiness that made them stand out from other restaurants. They also offer a variety of sauces to choose from, including honey BBQ, honey mustard, and Nashville-style hot sauce.

The experience at Bird Haus was complete with their friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere. Despite being busy, they took time to make sure each customer was taken care of. It's no wonder they have such loyal customers!
