Where To Get a Chicken Sandwich on the Upper West Side

Ever since Popeye’s declared they had the best chicken sandwich, chicken sandwiches have been all the rage – it seems that for months, everyone has been busy standing in line at their local Popeyes, Chick-fil-a and other restaurants to get a delicious, crispy chicken sandwich – the perfect cold-weather comfort food.

On the Upper West Side, though, you don’t need to go too far to get a chicken sandwich, even on National Fried Chicken Sandwich Day which falls on Nov. 9. This year on this tasty holiday, head to one of these spots near your Sagamore apartment for an unbeatable chicken sandwich.
