“Over hyped but good”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Simple enough. Only one sandwich on the menu. Tasted fine, but nothing special. Certainly can do better for the price and definitely not worth driving out of your way for.

“Amazing! One of a kind!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This visit is really one of a kind and will make your day. Though pricey the chicken sandwich, lemonade and any of the baked items are truly a delight. The food coupled with the experience is truly unique.

“Yum”
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”
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!”
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.
