When we want a good cry, we watch the opening sequence from Up, or YouTube videos of dogs being reunited with their long-lost owners. When we want to cry while eating, we go to T22 Chicken Joint and order the hottest spice level they have. This spot from the Salty Sow team started as a downtown food truck and became a brick and mortar space on Burnet, where they’re serving a larger menu of Nashville-inspired hot chicken dishes and plenty of beer and cocktails as well. Choose which pieces of chicken you want (and whether you want them alone or on a sandwich), then let them know how much heat you can handle. When we don’t want tears to stream down our faces, we go with the white meat at the second or third hottest level.
