I went to Betty's a few days before it opened. It was a hit with everyone. How could it not be with fried chicken sandwiches and egg salad sandwiches, some of the best cookies ever, pot pies. It was loved by everyone who went there. It was happy, the staff were funny and very helpful. If there was a long... More

I've always love BB's chicken sandwich. After not visiting for a while, I was excited to be in the area on the right day at the right time to find them open. Sorry to say, it won't be on my mind anymore after today. Sandwich has really lost that something special. Chicken is still good (though portion smaller than I... More

Well it is fried and a bit greasy... this is the best chicken sandwich bar none in the world. Their other food offerings are a bit slim, some baked goods and that is about it, but what they do they do well. Sometimes a bit of a line but seems to move fast given the limited menu. More of a... More

Great fried chicken sandwiches. Almost no indoor seating. Outdoor seating on sidewalk is also somewhat limited.

After reading about this place, we arrived early on a Tuesday afternoon. It took us a few minutes to figure out where to go since there was no line outside...then we saw the ironing board tables and knew we were in the right place. We ordered the chicken sandwich and strawberry shortcake which were both very good. I am not... More

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.
