    It's very easy to miss this New Orleans style sandwich shop. It has a more Williamsburg vibe than a Chinatown vibe. The chicken biscuit sandwich here is a must try for NYC locals and tourists alike!

    the oyster po' boy made me wanna cry; it was so good i felt moved. and whatever biscuit they use for the fried chicken sandwich is, like, heavenly. cool spot, rarely a wait compared to other LES bites

    Cheeky has been described as the best sandwiches in NYC, and though they don’t necessarily live up to that high bar, they are quite good. Service is pleasant though a little slow, but at least fresh
  • Courtney B.
    Definitely one of the best, most unique sandwich shops in the city. Amazing NOLA style sandwiches (and other delicious Southern style sandwiches, like the Fried Chicken Biscuit), plus beignets.

    The chicken biscuit, topped with gravy, is unmatched, the oyster (or shrimp) po’ boy is an excellent and classic option, and don’t skip the horseradish-spiked beef sandwich, either. Read more

    The chicken sandwich is a must try. The beignets are also fantastic (only 3 for $1). The people there are friendly and joy to conversate with. It's New Orleans in NYC!

    Fried chicken on a buttermilk biscuit is the way to go here. The place is tiny & you might miss it. It's to the right of the listed address with tiny doors. Ppl are super friendly.

    Get the classic chicken biscuit sandwich. Juicy chicken filet nestled between two warm, perfectly baked biscuits and dressed in gravy and slaw. You can literally taste the love

    This place has a great vibe and even nicer food! the chicken and biscuit sandwich is absolutely irresistible. The bread on the Po Boys is actually shipped in from New Orleans. Try the Crawfish chips!

    This is one of those places where you actually have a hard time deciding what to get because you want EVERYTHING on the menu. I eventually decided on the short ribs on challah & boy, am I glad I did!

    The oyster po' boy ($8.50) "is fully “dressed,” which on a New Orleans sandwich denotes the addition of lettuce, tomato, mayo & pickles, and, on Orchard St., also calls for Tabasco, ketchup & lemon." Read more

    Staff is superbly friendly. They give away free beignets from time to time to their customers. The beignets are amazing and cheap, chicory coffee is great, and their sandwiches even better.

    Also, the ben-yays & coffee are a delicious, post-sandwich snack & the guys working there are super cool. After we ordered 2 sandwiches & coffees, our ben-yays were on the house! Thanks, Cheeky :)

    the fried chicken sandwich is perfect comfort food fare: buttermilk biscuit, southern style chicken, coleslaw and gravy. also got the sea half shrimp + half oyster po'boy, which hit the spot. do it.

    Braised short rib with horseradish on toasted challah. Fried chicken on a buttermilk biscuit with coleslaw and gravy. A veggie muffuletta. This is not your average Boar’s Head–on–rye deli counter.

    While I have yet to try Cheeky's signature Fried Chicken biscuit, their braised beef short-rib on challah bread is a great sandwich. It isn't super filling, but it'll surely whet your palate.

    "Super affordable ($6.50) and they make the gravy and bread the chicken right in front of you. I swore I could taste a hint of cinnamon in the gravy, I’ll have to confirm on my next visit." Read more

    Don’t overlook this small restaurant because you don’t want to miss their chicken sandwich. The crunchy fried chicken topped with savory gravy is perfect in the right-out-of-the-oven, buttery biscuit.

    Most genuinely helpful service I've had in Manhattan and hands down, the best biscuits. Weirdly, the bathroom has a rustic, mountain outhouse feel to it (minus a water pump).

    Their chicken sandwich is heavenly — biscuit, gravy, fried chicken. How they make it without it being overly heavy or greasy I don't know. Sublime.

    One of the best places on earth. The vibe is the definition of cool but without any pretentiousness. The charm is simplicity, offering 4-5 sandwiches that they absolutely knock out of the park.

    Shrimp and oyster po' boy and fried chicken on biscuits. These guys make some of the best sandwiches around. Don't miss the place; the sign's on the pavement.

    If you don't eat meat, the grass sandwich is great! Tough to beat (pun originally not unintended) the goat cheese/beet combo.

    What a great addition to the neighborhood that we needed! New favorite lunch place. Fantastic casual atmosphere and southern ambience. The Veggie was amazing!

    BEST Oyster and shrimp Po'boy. Their excellent beignets pair well with the Cafe du Monde coffee that they serve. Don't leave without having beignets!

    First time: I had the chicken sandwich cause I was too intimidated by the oyster and shrimp. But the chicken was so f*ckin good I don't think I'll ever change my order...

    For a whole 2 week, we came here everyday for either the fried chicken sandwich ($7) or the breakfast sandwich. Both served on perfectly baked biscuits.

    Chicken and Beef are to die for. I wish I loved the Po' Boys here (bread flown in weekly from New Orleans), but it really wasn't that filling.

    this place is SO underrated and how it has flown under the radar for so long blows my mind. this was the OG fried chicken sandwich in nyc -- w biscuit/gravy/grits!

    The white gravy on the chicken sandwich is so good. The biscuit is also crumbly goodness. They also give you a beignet with your order.

    The veggie sandwich is really lame. Vinegar from the pickled vegetables dominates everything else, and by the time I walked 2 blocks the bread was totally soggy

    Don't be fooled by the size, one chicken biscuit is actually enough for a meal. Add chips or beignets and you'll be in for the itis

    Insanely good sandwiches in this tiny + super friendly New Orleans style spot. If you are nice they might hook you up with fresh beignets.

    Coffees perfect, beef is bomb! The bread they use is bangin! And if you don't like jelly on your biscuit do it with honey it's almost better.

    You can't go wrong with the fried chicken on buttermilk biscuit. The gravy is hot as lava but so delicious. Save room for beignets!

    Chicken sandwich, savory biscuit, fried chicken, gravy and red cabbage coleslaw. Just right.

    The Korean woman who owns the wholesale hosiery store across the street is SO rude. I went in and she refused to help me and made me leave for unknown reasons.

    Don't be afraid to get two sandwiches if your first time. I recommend a pork and a beef. Best sandwich place in nyc.

    Get voodoo chips and a chicken sandwich. Tell all your friends and tip well! It's a tiny kitchen. Then grab a pint at Top Hops nearby

    The 1/2 and 1/2 Po Boy is so good it makes me angry. Add Zapp's and some beignets and take the rest of the day off.

    If you're looking for a change-up--try the veggie sandwich! The only place I'd actually recommend a veggie sandwich from.

    Po boy nailed it. Salty fried oysters and a spicy pickley remoulade, plus cozy interior. What more do you need.

    Chicken and buttermilk biscuit can be described in one word: Heaven. Authentic southern decor in an urban setting. Win.
