    Their current business hours are Tues-Sat 11am-2pm. And yes the fried chicken sandwich is tender & delicious. Couldn't choose b/t choc chip cookie & strawberry shortcake so got both, nom! ;)

    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.

    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

    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.

    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 :)

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

    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.
