Been going to Betty's for several years now. The place has changed a lot: longer lines as the myth has grown and how this sandwich is now on TV shows and is not replicated well; the place has been remodeled in that there is no counter or display case. No menu really and no prices. They open only for a few hours each day and no longer for the morning crowd. Therefore no more scones or coffee. Now it's a mad crush of hipsters who come in, see a counter where they order and all the prep is happening in the back where we can't see. Occasionally Allison the now wealthy owner with the blue wig will come out, but no more free cookies either. For some reason this business has been schizophrenic in how it even stays open. It doesn't want to be very successful since it probably recoups all its costs in the mere two or three hours it's open. Or -- maybe it's the exhorbitant price for its most important item. That fried chicken sandwich is now a whipping $9.68. It used to be around $6 not long ago. Then $7 then $7.50. Since food bloggers and foodies obsessed about this place so much the price just had to go up.
How has the sandwich held up? It's still very good and the jalapeno mayo-less slaw apparently can now be ordered as a side too. But there's way too much of it. The Acme soft roll is terrific. Also ordered a masterful strawberry shortcake for $5.
