King of the Coop, Tampa’s famous hot chicken joint, opens in Wesley Chapel

King of the Coop is Tampa’s top hot chicken spot, and the concept is growing with a brand new location at The Grove in Wesley Chapel — it will officially open January 19.

King of the Coop’s heat meter starts at Naked (no heat, no spice) to Take the Throne, a heat level that may unleash the waterworks.

Need something extra on the side? Spring for the hearty hush puppies with pimento cheese or the creamed collard greens.
