Boxcar Betty’s, a Charleston-based gourmet fried chicken sandwich concept, is opening in Optimist Hall on Friday, July 10.
“We are so excited to bring our award-winning chicken sandwiches to the Charlotte market,” co-owner Roth Scott said. “We feel honored to be a part of such an incredible project with other wonderful tenants.”
What: Boxcar Betty’s was established five years ago in Charleston; it now has three Charleston locations and one in Chicago, Charlotte will be the fifth. They’re best known for gourmet fried chicken sandwiches made from all-natural, cage-free and antibiotic-free meat with delicious toppings.
“Whenever I am in Charleston, Boxcar Betty’s is my go-to lunch spot, so I look forward to being able to enjoy a delicious chicken sandwich in my hometown,” Erik Johnson, co-founder of White Point Partners, said.
The menu: Expect chicken sandwiches, classic Southern side dishes, salads, desserts and a kid’s menu. Vegetarians can swap the chicken for a fried portobello mushroom cap stuffed with pimiento cheese.
The Boxcar (pimiento cheese, peach slaw, house pickles and spicy mayo) and the Chicken Not So Waffle (bacon jam, maple syrup, pimiento cheese and tomato) are customer favorites. You can also build your own sandwich with choice of protein (chicken or mushroom), 11 toppings and 10 sauces.
Design: It’ll have a farmhouse feel space with reclaimed wood and industrial lighting.
