i called my order in a half hour before I arrived. When I came in I paid & was told to wait in the corner. 1 HOUR later my order was STILL not ready. I asked how much longer & was ignored. People came & went ordering the same exact thing I had ordered. I was treated very poorly. Other customers were told to stand over there with me in the corner. Weird thing was, we were all Caucasian standing in the corner & everyone else in the place was African American. Some of the people with me were from out of town, I was never so embarrassed for my city. I WILL NEVER RETURN, it's a shame I love the food. I gave away my other groupons for Hot Sauce to my African American friends. I hope they are treated better.

make sure you have policies of Groupon and merchant available. Food was good but you will have to wait for it.

The prices were significantly higher then the menu on Groupon. The manager said that the menu was not theirs. He did not how it got on the website. I was very unhappy. He treated me like I wasn't intelligent enough to know what he said was a lie.

From Our Editors

Meet a reality TV darling...

Hot Sauce Williams may sit in an unpretentious storefront, but its hot sauce-doused fried chicken, rib dinners, and perch by the bucketful have a national profile; the restaurant has appeared on Man vs. Food and No Reservations.

...with humble beginnings...

The Williams family, led by the five Williams brothers, first opened the spot in 1964. Not only did they have no experience in the restaurant industry, they also had no official hot sauce recipe, and no name for their new business. Lemaud Williams joked that hot sauce-making was an instinct that ran in the family. The moniker "Hot Sauce Williams" only materialized when customers decided they had to call the sign-less eatery something.

...and not-at-all humble hot sauce.

That spiced condiment remains the restaurant's signature, a zesty blend that's not so dangerously hot that geckos who eat it become dragons. Try it as Man vs. Food's Adam Richman did—on a kielbasa sausage heaped with fries, slaw, and a generous dousing of sauce.
