I’ve heard about it since I moved here 10 months ago. I’ve seen the massive lines daily outside the shop. And finally…I got to taste the famous Bakesale Betty’s fried chicken sandwich. What’s so great about it? Find out and peep more food porn after the jump. Reasons why this sandwich rocks: 1. It is fried chicken. FRIED CHICKEN. Nuff said. 2.

The chicken was juicy and moist, and the crust flavorful. This was just the best fried chicken sandwich I have ever had.
