Love chicken sandwiches? Good news, here’s a quick list and drool-worthy photos of 14 must-try chicken sandwiches in Charlotte.
While both Popeyes and Chick-fil-A (my favorite of the two) are tasty, this list only compromises hometown chicken sandwiches.
One to watch: Bossy Beulah’s Chicken Shack, a new fried chicken concept from Jim Noble, the owner of Rooster’s and Noble Smoke. It’ll open on Freedom Drive within the next few weeks. The dead simple menu featuring chicken sandwiches, slaw and fries.
