Anyone else craving a chicken sandwich?! Sometimes we get a hankering for something specific and want to write an article about it! We asked our followers via Instagram Stories where they love to get a chicken sandwich and ended up with 11 DFW spots to get some of the best chicken sandwiches, from Nashville hot to homestyle southern!
THE CARDI B
Invasion became a hit for fast casual eats after opening early this year and their signature chicken sandwich has a name you'll surely recognize, the “Cardi B”! It’s a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with spicy mayo made in house and topped with a cabbage blend of pickles, cabbage and jalapeños for some kick. Score a free Cardi B when you buy one on Tuesday, just make sure to say “Takeout Tuesday” when placing your order!

RICKY’S HOT CHICKEN
We can personally attest to the hotness of Ricky’s Hot Chicken! We ordered a “sando” for ourselves and we definitely chased it with sweet tea pretty quick.

Our order came with crispy, crinkle cut fries, sauce and a drink! They’re chicken is so popular, they now have over 17,000 Instagram followers!

THE HONOR BAR
For an elevated environment but a spot where you can still savor a chicken sandwich, The Honor Bar is a no brainer. The Honor Bar is on the pricier side but totally worth it when you see their Rotisserie Chicken slow roasted sandwich. It comes with mole amarillo and fries but you can add on any of their side pairings like deviled eggs or cole slaw! It looks incredible but their most popular is none other than Ding’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich made with buttermilk fried chicken, baby Swiss and spicy slaw!
HIGHLAND PARK | DIRECTIONS
MIKE’S STREET CHICKEN
The vibe at Mike’s is super laid back and casual but the chicken is out of this world. They even won a Yelp award for their chicken! A fun part about their sandwiches is that they are actually made with crispy tenders! A sandwich meal automatically comes with fries and dipping sauces but make sure you add on some of their homestyle biscuits to get the full southern meal experience!
