Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack, an Arden restaurant located at 2603 Hendersonville Rd, has closed. The eatery was practically gaining cult status for its ridiculously spicy, very delicious fried chicken; many local hardcore spice-lovers are sure to be quite disappointed. Owner Rocky Lindsley has left an outgoing message on the restaurant’s voicemail, explaining that he had to close the Shack “due to personal reasons and changes in the lease.”
Lindsley goes on to say that he hopes to open up elsewhere some time in the future, and reminds the faithful to keep their eyes peeled for that. In the meantime, he says, customers and friends may be able to find him playing music at Magnolias, though he doesn’t mention what days. The space that currently housed Rocky’s, by the way, is for rent.
In closing, Lindsley, who sounds somewhat distraught, thanks fans of his restaurant for their support, and reminds them to “keep it spicy.”
