“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The fried chicken sandwich, what else?!! Simple concept, but so well executed that you will understand the long line (which moves quickly) once you take a bite. I like a little hot sauce on mine, but I think the really fresh slaw they use is what makes this baby sing.

“Chicken sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

That sandwich is a monster but oh so good - fried chicken with spicy slaw - worth waiting in line for. I have not tried anything else though.

“One item menu...Great Sandwich!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I finally got my chance to visit Bakesale Betty's today. All I can say is...pretty amazing! It was quick getting in and out. The sandwich...perfect crispy chicken, wrapped in a fresh baked roll, covered with amazing slaw that has just the hint of heat...just enough for me who usually takes every Mexican salsa mild. My friend and I sat outside at the ironing board...and took it all in. Highly recommend a visit.

“There's a line for a reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Yummy. excellent food.... you order at the counter, take your goodies outside and eat on an ironing board. It's fun. The food is made on site. there are some funky shops around to wander through. Sagrada is a beautiful shop centered on sacred arts and is on the same block.

“Bakesale Betty addicts us all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I hesitate to write a great review for Bakesale Betty; the lines are long enough now! They have created the world's best chicken sandwich (also offered in tofu and salad). They're opening hours tend to slide around and they close when they run out of chicken but I'm willing to endure it all for the fabulous sandwiches. They also make great cookies.
