    The fried chicken is white meat, moist and the crust is perfect!! Not greasy at all!!Their apple pie is really cinnamony, tender flaky crust and the vanilla whipped cream is lightly sweetened.

    Line is long but moves incredibly fast. Buttermilk fried tofu sandwich is delicious and filling. Buttermilk fried chicken sandwich is definitely a must-try though. Pear ginger scone is too sugary.

    The best chicken sandwich I've ever had, took it home and adding Sirarcha and BBQ sauce did nothing to enhance the taste, was perfect on it's own.

    When you go to a place that serves only a fried chicken sandwich, you get the fried chicken sandwich. And you come back again and again for the fried chicken sandwich. It's that good.

    Fried chicken (or tofu) sandwiches. Don't worry about a line as they are cranking out this fried beauties faster than you can whip out your wallet and pay the $9 for the sandwich.

    The fried chicken sandwich, with its spicy-tangy jalapeno slaw, made this place practically world famous in the last half-decade, and every day they're open, at lunchtime, that's what the line is for. Read more

    Other than the baked goods, they do exactly one thing, and they do it really well: the food chicken sandwich. Yum.

    Damn good scones and sandwiches. The line is long, but I literally waited a minute to get my order, their staff is efficient and friendly AF and they know how to prepare for the lunch rush.

    Bakesale Betty has earned a cult following for one thing and one thing only: buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches, served on a bed of vinegary coleslaw garnished with jalapeños. Read more

    It may not be as exciting as the newer Nashville-inspired spots, but it's a solidly executed basic chicken sandwich. Takeaway only - find tables on the north side of Temescal Alley (behind Pizzaiolo)

    They have a fried tofu sandwich, too. Since I don't eat meat, I can't rate what most customers are coming here for but the sandwich was tasty.

    Great place to grab a deep fried chicken sandwich, pass by early, 600-800 sold everyday, when finished thats it

    The chicken sandwich is delicious - and so is the banana bread 😋 Worth waiting in line for.

    The fried chicken sandwich is amazing but the 9 dollar price tag is nuts! My gf and I now purchase one and share because 18 bucks for two sandwiches seems a tad much.

    Order the fried chicken sandwich, of course. Ask for it the way owner Alison Barakat likes it: extra coleslaw, extra jalapenos.

    If you're looking for something other than their fried chicken sandwich, they also have superb brisket and egg salad sandwiches. Come early (before 12:30) for the brisket though - it sells out fast.

    I recommend the Chicken Salad because the bread in the sandwich is merely mediocre. Also make sure to try the Lemon Ice! They usually run out so don't go right before closing.

    The fried chicken sandwich definitely lives up to the hype! Could use a little more heat/spice, but luckily there is hot sauce available. The slaw on the sandwich rocked! Read more

    The lines are long, they run out of chicken but it is a success story because of the slaw -- jalapenos, cabbage and some secret ingredients. Good scones, and lemon ice. It all works.

    Although the line is often intimidating, it moves quickly. Enjoy the sandwiches, and don't skip the molasses cookies.

    Anticipate not being able to find parking and waiting in a line. Fried chicken sandwich is good but not worth the hype but it could've just been an off day. Very generous piece of chicken :)

    They usually have a 3rd sandwich special. Today was sloppy joe. Hard to deny the chicken though so go with friends and split all 3!

    I was disappointed - I thought the fried chicken sandwich was very meh. Slaw didn't add anything and for the price you might be better off going to KFC.
