TAMPA, Fla.—King of the Coop is known for bringing delicious heat to the Seminole Heights area.

Opened in April 2019, King of the Coop was the first Nashville hot chicken restaurant in Tampa. Their fried chicken comes in five degrees of heat; Naked, The Biddy, Midway, Nashville Hot and Coops Fury.

Three of the restaurant’s best sellers are their chicken tenders, catfish basket and Dirty Bird Sandwich, which is made with two tenders and pimento cheese on a toasted potato bread bun. All three come with King Sauce, which is their take on Comeback Sauce, and season fries.

“We take pride in the food that we do,” said owner, Joe Dodd. “We take pride in customer service…we take pride in consistency. And if you just want an overall great experience with really good food…I think we do really, really good fried chicken, and we’re very proud of that.”

King of the Coop is located at 6607 N Florida Avenue and shares the space with Wicked Oak Barbeque. The dining room is still closed due to the pandemic, but you can place take out orders and there is limited seating on the outside patio.

In November, the Nashville hot chicken spot plans to open up another location in Wesley Chapel. To learn more about King of the Coop, click here.
