When you consider that celebrated chef David Chang (Momofuku) rolled out a fried chicken-sandwich concept (Fuku) and Shake Shack added a fried chicken sandwich to its permanent menu this year, it’s safe to say that the fried chicken sandwich is having a moment.

You can find them all over Austin menus, from drive-thrus to fine dining establishments. Given their recent ubiquity, I set out to try sandwiches all over town and determine the best in Austin. I’ve eaten so many fried chicken sandwiches in the past month, during conversation I get scared I might start ‘squawking’ or ‘bawking’ or whatever it is chickens do.
