  • Stephanie C.Don't be intimidated by the long line, it's super efficient

    55555 by Stephanie C.


  • Olivia P.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.

    55555 by Olivia P.


  • Garry T.Hello chicken sandwiches. Line moves fast, don't be dissuaded from the wait.

  • PureWowBakesale 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.

    55555 by PureWow


  • Bommy ChaLine 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.

    55555 by Bommy Cha


  • Kait GaissFamous for their fried chicken sandwich.

    55555 by Kait Gaiss


  • Adrian PhillipsFried 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.

    55555 by Adrian Phillips

    55555 by c0uP


  • Ashley M.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.

    55555 by Ashley M.


  • Ryan L.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.

    55555 by Ryan L.

  • Sahar A.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! ;)

    55555 by Sahar A.


  • FrankThe 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.

    55555 by Frank


  • Chris N.Line moves fast approx 15-20 min and you've got the best fried chicken cheat meal in the Bay Area

    55555 by Chris N.


  • SFistThe 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.

    55555 by SFist

  • ChelseaAnticipate 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 :)

    33333 by Chelsea

  • judy k.Strawberry Shortcake FIRST...then Chicken Sandwich!

    55555 by judy k.


  • Gal O.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.

    55555 by Gal O.

  • Jessica @.Get extra coleslaw w your sandwich!! Soo good. Also take a pot pie to go...it's even better than the fried chicken sandwich if you can believe it

    55555 by Jessica @.


  • Gusto L.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.

    55555 by Gusto L.

  • Patty SThe 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!

    55555 by Patty S


  • Keith F.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.

    55555 by Keith F.
