The Original McDougal’s!
The original McDougals started when Tommy McDougal signed a lease at an old, small 1,000 sq. ft. house at the footsteps of Vanderbilt University in the Hillsboro Village district. With his two brothers by his side, he gutted the old house and set about hammering out a friendly, funky chicken eatery with wall-to-wall personality. After several long months of hard work on a wing and a prayer, the first restaurant opened on Jan. 9, 2004.
Interesting Fact: In the early days Tommy was working 7 days a week, putting in more than 100 hours while living upstairs at the restaurant!
