Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack first opened in Arden, NC in February, 2009. It didn’t take long for the word to spread. Read my article, Hot Chicken Sissy!” here. But even with a pretty good level of success, Rocky closed down the shack.

There was a huge outcry, which led to the formation of a Facebook Group: Afterburn – aka “Bring Back Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack” put together by what must be Rocky’s number one fan, Jason Nicolai. Jason has kept everyone up to date on Rocky’s journey with such energy and enthusiasm, it was completely contagious!

Gradually word spread that Rocky was looking for a new location, somewhere in Asheville. Then came the announcement: Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack will be reopening on Friday, July 1, 2011. And it has!

They’ve done a fantastic job this time with location (big enough for a crowd with plenty of parking), a website, Facebook Page and a Twitter account.

I wasn’t able to get there for the opening, but here are two excellent accounts:

One Response to Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack Reopens in West Asheville

  1. I personally found “Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack” to be tasteless pricey fast food. We waiting an hour to get our food and when we respectfully expressed our dismay to the manager, he was condescending, rude and argumentative. Bad, bad, bad !!! Don’t waste your time or money.
