The fried chicken is extraordinary!. You had better get there early as they sell out quickly....that should tell you something about the demand for their chicken.

Very limited menu. Good food but not great by any means. Kitschy atmosphere, by which I mean NO atmosphere... Just eat and run.

I have undeniable cravings for Bakesale Betty's fried chicken sandwich and often recommend it to friends who are visiting the Bay Area. There are always long lines at prime hours but if the line is particularly slow, someone always comes out with fresh baked cookies to help ease the time waiting. And wait the patrons will because the sandwiches and... More

There is a line for a reason!!! Best Fried Chicken Sandwich with coleslaw, is so good. The line goes pretty fast so do not let that discourage you. Well worth the wait.

Some of the great items I have tried while visiting Betty's. Fried chicken sandwich and the egg salad sandwiches are definite repeats. The egg salad is out of this world tasty. All of the baked treats that I have sampled were fresh and melt in your mouth delish. Betty's is closed on Sundays but the m-sat hours were 7 to... More

My brother told me about this place, nothing really to look at. I was a little hesitant. Then I tried the only sandwich? I though it was a little odd but I tried it.

Her signature tables are used ironing boards. This Australian electric blue wigged wonder has hit the magic spot for casual dining. She... More

LOVE...LOVE...LOVE Bakesale Betty's! OK you have to stand in line and you only have two items on the menu. But it is worth it. Bring cash, although I think they take credit cards now. And get a cookie, you stood in line you deserve it! :-)
