Hot Client Reviews

Not my family's 1st time, and it won't be the last. We've been enjoying the atmosphere, everyone is like family and the Live entertainment has been a bonus! I'm Florida raised and Big Shakes gave my Aunt Rose's southern cooking a run for our $. Until next time, I'll be dreaming I'm at Big Shakes for dinner. Continued Blessings!

Big Shake's Hot Chicken & Fish is a true Franklin, TN treasure. When trying to decide who we wanted to cater our wedding in October 2017, my now husband mentioned how much we like Big Shake's & how our friends & family will too. Shawn & Robin Davis were amazing! They went above & beyond to provide our wedding with delicious food.

Ate here tonight with the family... loved the live music. The catfish was out of this world and the Fried Chicken you already know. Got the Rambo heat level and even my two-year-old ate it (he likes spice and he is very picky too!). Mac and cheese, greens, and Fries were all excellent as well. All the employees stayed on task and management was very personable. Will definitely be back!

First time eating here today with my wife. Best chicken tenders we've ever had. Coleslaw and greens were crazy good too. Shrimp burger was delicious as well. Love the family and "close knit" atmosphere. Something I'm not used to being from Chicagoland. Will definitely be back again..and again...and...

I just heard about this place last night in a Facebook group when I asked who had the absolute Hottest hot chicken in the area. Looks like I'll be adding a shirt to my collection soon!
