Palmer’s Hot Chicken, the latest entrant into Dallas’s rapidly growing spicy fried chicken scene, will officially make its debut next week.

The restaurant is set to arrive at 6455 East Mockingbird Lane, inside the Hillside Village shopping center, on October 19. According to a press release, the restaurant will occupy a 1,400 square foot space, complete with a large outdoor patio and curbside pickup service for diners who are still wary about eating indoors.

The first Dallas restaurant from Nashville-raised restaurateur Palmer Fortune, Palmer’s will offer its Nashville-style fried chicken at four different spice levels that range from “naked” (or no heat) to the wildly spicy “napalm.” Outside of the chicken options, fried catfish and shrimp, street tacos, and sandwiches will also be on the menu, along with classic Southern sides like pimento cheese grits and maple baked beans. Desserts like banana pudding and ice cream cookie sandwiches will be on offer to cool the burn, along with boozy options like frose and craft beer.

Palmer’s is just the latest spicy fried chicken destination to make its debut in recent months, and even more are coming. Ricky’s Hot Chicken in Plano has attracted lengthy lines since its debut, and Lucky’s Hot Chicken just arrived not too far away from Palmer’s space in East Dallas. Then there’s Hattie B’s, the wildly popular Nashville-based fried chicken chain that just announced plans to expand to Dallas.

Palmer’s will open for lunch and dinner service on October 18.
