Michael Scorsone knows tasty food, in fact, he's the man behind local successes Michael's Ali, Mac'd Out, and the recently opened Fat Mike's Hot Chicken! Fat Mike's Hot Chicken opened in early 2020 "on the fly" says Michael, serving Nashville Hot Chicken in a variety of options. As hours were cut at many of his locations, he wanted to keep his employees on staff. This led him to partner with a veteran chef from the Hyatt Grand Cypress to create his signature recipes at Fat Mike's Hot Chicken.
They opened with a limited menu and no grand opening celebration, but Mike's Nashville style hot chicken has been a hit! "I love this town, the people of Winter Garden are so good to us" says Michael. While the opening year may have seen some struggles, Fat Mike's Hot Chicken has undoubtedly been a success. You can find Fat Mike's on Plant Street, with the main entrance facing the Crooked Can Brewing Company patio. Brewery patrons can order online to enjoy this southern fried chicken with a pint in hand.
