You may live in Grand Rapids but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the taste of Nashville right here in town.

Hancock Grand Rapids is now open at 1157 Wealthy St SE (corner of Wealthy and Fuller). This rehabbed historical building, once service station, is bringing that downhome cooking to the Uptown/Wealthy Street neighborhood. 

Hancock officially opened their shop on March 11, 2019, serving up Hot Chicken in tiers: Not- Hot- Hotter- Hottest. While the focus is on their chicken, they have ‘sides for days’. These include their waffle fries, broccoli salad, biscuits and jalapeno butter, creamed corn grits and braised greens. Also on the menu are delicious breakfast bowls, delectable desserts, scrumptious salads and ice cold drinks. We can’t wait to enjoy the frozen adult beverages and HUGE patio during those sought after warmer months (we swear, they’re coming!). 

With counter service and no tipping, getting your food is seamless. Worried about needing another beverage or another side and having to go back up to the counter? Don’t. The wait staff still tends to tables for all your needs after ordering.

In addition to offering great tasting food, Hancock has strived to create a unique indoor and outdoor dining environment, including a huge patio guests can enjoy during the warmer months. The exterior features a wide sidewalk and places where patrons can park their bikes. Hancock will also be featuring live music and entertainment.
