Eight Life-Changing Fried Chicken Sandwiches in Dallas

Page 2 of 2


The Crispy Chicken Breast at Uncle Uber’s Sammich Shop
Thank you for being reliable, Uncle Uber. Most sandwiches on the menu at the Deep Ellum sandwich spot are a go-to for lunch (do add a bag of salt and vinegar chips). Same goes for the smart, simple and well-executed crispy chicken sandwich, which is loaded up with Uber’s sauce, romaine and onion on a lightly toasted bun. It’s under 10 bucks, and has a homemade flavor profile that will make you rethink making sandwiches at home again.
2713 Commerce St., $6.99 

The Litigator at Off-Site Kitchen
Thanks to near-perfect burgers, you may have overlooked a few options at Off-Site. For example: The sloppy joe taco is the best version of the cafeteria Sloppy Joe that's ever happened, and The Litigator — a crispy cloud of fried chicken with mustard, bacon, American cheese and chopped jalapeños — will send tears to your eyes. Why? Because this is the chicken sandwich you wish you had when you drove through Chick-Fil-A. A cold slice of American cheese, placed right on top of the hot chicken, and the jalapeños chopped into a punchy relish, put this little sandwich into the stratosphere. 
331 Singleton Blvd., No. 100, $6.59

The Fried Chicken and Biscuits at The Skellig
Sister-restaurant to the Old Monk, The Skellig has a winner of a fried appetizer: Three chicken biscuit sliders. Smoky chipotle mayo is the spark here, paired with sharp slaw and house biscuits that top the fried chicken like Devo energy domes. They’re good, and they come in threes. That doesn’t mean everyone gets one. Practice the slapping-hands-away-strikes at home beforehand.
2409 N. Henderson Ave.; $11

The Fried Chicken + Jack at East Hampton Sandwich Company
If Food Network is the overlord of food trends, than you must obey a decree about amazing fried chicken sandwiches. East Hampton's was rated one of 12 amazing sandwiches, coast to coast, and Food Network, we humbly admit, is right. The sandwich is special: Fried chicken is curtained with pepper jack, fresh greens, tomato, bacon and mashed avocado. A stupidly good jalapeño cream sauce notches up the acid, cutting through the textures. It’s a sandwich, like the rest of Dallas’ best, that should live to be immortal in the face of pretentious food trends.
Multiple locations; $10.80
